Sanrio Boys Series Review: At Least They Tried?

This was always going to be a Sanrio advertisement but did they manage to also make an interesting anime? Let me know what you thought in the comments below. Review: The first episode of this anime was quite the surprise. Despite the wafer thin premise which was clearly just a justification to make an anime … Continue reading Sanrio Boys Series Review: At Least They Tried?

Sanrio Boys Episode 12: If You Want Them To Be Six, Make Them Six

There are some anime you get to the end of and breathe a sigh of relief with the warm and happy feeling of not having to ever watch it again. Sanrio Boys is definitely one of those and for those who didn't follow my episode reviews until now, just reading the titles linked below is … Continue reading Sanrio Boys Episode 12: If You Want Them To Be Six, Make Them Six

Sanrio Boys Episode 11: Kouta Vs His Own Feelings of Inadequacy

As the boys rehearse in earnest and Kouta pushes himself to collapse, the play looms ever closer and yet this happy group of friends is facing a fracture that not even Sanrio merchandise may be able to smooth over. Of course I'm kidding. Sanrio merchandise will fix everything and that is why the end of … Continue reading Sanrio Boys Episode 11: Kouta Vs His Own Feelings of Inadequacy

Sanrio Boys Episode 10: This Has Run Out Of Steam Half-Way Up The Mountain

For a show that started out defying expectations (however low viewers' expectations of an anime based around cute merchandise and a group of boys essentially acting as walking adverts for it might have been), the second half has been decidedly average or even a little bit below average. And the reason for that is the … Continue reading Sanrio Boys Episode 10: This Has Run Out Of Steam Half-Way Up The Mountain

Sanrio Boys Episode 9: And The Boys Go To The Beach

Review: Admittedly, for a beach episode this one wasn't all that painful, mostly because the show never actually tried to pretend that it wasn't just an excuse to show the guys off in different poses and doing the usual 'beach' activities. Plus, given this show doesn't really care for drama we were spared any near … Continue reading Sanrio Boys Episode 9: And The Boys Go To The Beach

Sanrio Boys Episode 8: He Wants To Sparkle Now

Review: After the ending last week you would have thought that Kouta had experienced some kind of grand epiphany. Instead we realise he is swept up in emotion and wants to sparkle but hasn't thought for a moment about how to achieve that. In the grand tradition of anime he starts by attempting to imitate … Continue reading Sanrio Boys Episode 8: He Wants To Sparkle Now

Sanrio Boys Episode 7: And We All Went To Puroland

Review: Well, if they want to advertise their theme park, I guess this works well enough. It kind of lacks anything resembling a story and a few moments of character realisation in the last couple of minutes of the episode doesn't really make up for that. Basically, this was like the Anime-Gataris episode where they … Continue reading Sanrio Boys Episode 7: And We All Went To Puroland

Sanrio Boys Episode 6: We’re Finally Sanrio Boys

Review: Not going to lie, I may have actually missed part of this episode due to falling asleep. Not that the episode was that bad (wasn't that good either), but I was kind of work exhausted when I decided to watch it. Now, I could go back and do an episode rewatch but I really … Continue reading Sanrio Boys Episode 6: We’re Finally Sanrio Boys

Sanrio Boys Episode 5: Seeking An Age Appropriate Plot

Review: Last week I mentioned that if the character had been in middle school rather than high school the plot may have worked but as it was, it just felt really odd. This week continues that trend with the new character who was introduced at the end of last week having the mentality and attitude … Continue reading Sanrio Boys Episode 5: Seeking An Age Appropriate Plot

Sanrio Boys Episode 3: Angry Sister Character Needs To Disappear

Review: I'm kind of getting what they were going for this episode but Yuri, Yuu's younger sister, is just so incredibly unlikable by the time Yuu nearly hit her I was kind of hoping no one would stop him (even though that would end up leaving an incredibly bad taste on the entire anime). But … Continue reading Sanrio Boys Episode 3: Angry Sister Character Needs To Disappear
