Day 1: Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun | 12 Days of Anime
The first day of the 12 Days of Anime is dedicated to a very funny and enjoyable anime titled Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun. A couple of months ago I stumbled upon this anime on a website while looking for what to watch on a very boring day. I became curious enough to watch it after reading that the anime was categorized as comedy/shoujo but had a boy as the protagonist. Which was interesting considering that usually the protagonists of shoujo related content are girls. I also thought it was cool that he was actually a manga artist. So having nothing to do that day I clicked play and marathoned through the entire anime.
Oh gosh! I usually don’t marathon anything I watch. I’m the kind of person who enjoys watching episodes week by week because I enjoy it much more than marathoning, but I just couldn’t avoid it with this anime. I was hooked from the first episode. I love Sakura and Nozaki-kun’s interactions. They are so funny together. Especially when trying to come up with ideas for scenes which Nozaki needs for his manga. Though Nozaki frustrated me many times by being completely oblivious to Sakura’s feelings, I really like how he takes Sakura’s opinion into consideration and how lovely their friendship is. Of course, I also love that the supporting characters were just as important and contributed greatly to the plot and development of the story. Mikoshiba, Kashima, Hori, Seo and Wakamatsu were very enjoyable to watch. I loved how each character was introduced and even had the chance to shine. I really felt like they all got along well and, every time they got together, I just could not stop laughing at the situations that would occur. For those who love shipping characters together this anime has a few couples to choose from. Which is great when looking for graphics. I find myself going to Weheartit from time to time to find related fan art of all the characters.
Overall, I really enjoyed this anime. It was very funny to watch the story unfold around such delightful characters. They were unique and complimented each other well. There were a lot of manga creating scenes which was also cool for me, and I liked how various settings were used apart from the school environment. It’s an anime about a faulty love confession which enables a series of situations that are comical and ironic at the same time. To me friendship and comedy are key elements to this anime. If you are looking forward to spending a nice day watching anime and need a suggestion on what to watch, then by all means check out Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun. 😉
