This anime was not originally on my watchlist, but in the end I decided to give it a chance.
The “dramatic extreme going to school comedy” manga follows the titular female high school student Chio Miyamo, and her adventures to commute to school every day. Chio runs in to problems both big and small, such as construction, a biker gang, a sudden urge to use the bathroom, and more.
The premise is very simple: Chio is a student who always has many obstacles when trying to get to school in time. It’s not much, really, but I guess for a comedy anime might be enough, or not.
At the first episode, we see two different occasions where Chio is having trouble trying to get to class in time, and how she reacts and what she does to try and arrive in time. So far both the situations and her reactions and plans were funny and made up for a good episode, although not comedy gold.
The animation, art style and voice are also good and fit the style of the anime very well.
While I had fun during the first episode, I’m still not sure if the title will be able to step up its comedy, and I fear that the novelty might wear off halfway through the season. But only time will tell. I had fun, but this title is not going to be a priority on my watchlist, and I suspect it’ll end up on my on hold list after a couple more episodes.
