Monthly Girls Nozaki-kun episode 1 – Please don’t become the thing you’re parodying

Remember the name of Gangan Online, the online manga publishing arm of the Gangan brand. The manga that have been turned into anime that came from Gangan Online so far have been Watamote, Daily Lives of Highschool Boys, Barakamon and some crappy 4-koma about cute girls that nobody watched.

Upotte!! episode 1

After a few minutes of the anime starting, I was already mocking its total shittiness. “Oh look” I joked, “It’s like Hetalia except with cute girls and not funny”.

Natsuiro Kiseki episode 1

This first episode reminded me of another anime I’ve seen. Now if I could only put my finger on it…ah yes, I remember now! It’s like all the things Daily Lives of Highschool Boys mocks in every single episode!
