But even so – there are some
Sometimes even the best
Here’s a list of shows to think about before you decide to go through with it.
1. Dog And Scissors
Dog And Scissors… how do I even describe this crazy
When I first seen it I thought “hmmm, even though the ratings aren’t perfect, It “could” surprise me”. Of course by surprise I meant impress. But it surprised me alright with how strange and odd the comedy is.
The main male character is reborn as a dog after he’s murdered. During his death, there’s a girl with long black hair who’s at the “crime” scene.
Well, this girl is a lunatic who gets “aroused” from torturing Harumi (the guy who’s reborn as a cute, helpless little dog). And that’s all the
I dare you to watch this
2. Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions
I admit – this
But I didn’t feel this way in the beginning. That’s why I dropped it before episode 5.
But something pulled me back and said “give it a chance” and so I did. And it still made me cringe at the comedy and delusional behavior of the main character: Rikka Takanashi.
By this point you’ll either love this series, or you’ll hate it because of how bad it makes you cringe. But if you pull through – this is a rewarding
The characters are memorable, and the comedy has its own flavor. Making it “nothing” like you’ll ever taste as far as rom-com or slice of life in general.
3. Trinity Seven
I’ve seen a TON of
Trinity Seven is that kind of
Within the first few episodes I cringed and face-palmed myself at the desperate attempts to show fan service and the same old harems we’ve seen 1000’’s of times. In a way that’s uninspiring..
There’s nothing new and nothing about it makes me want to say “this deserves a chance”. Especially with how much it makes you cringe at the characters and nonsensical “copy n paste” style of storytelling.
4. How clumsy you are, Miss Ueno
When you watch 1 episode of an
But when you take the audacious, ballsy ideas of getting another character to drink “piss” transformed into water, it can only make you scratch your head.
This is supposed to be “”comedy”, and I get it: Japan’s idea of comedy is different to the west and the world in general.
That’s why I love
But How Clumsy You Are, Miss Ueno might be too much. And you’ll cringe as soon as the
5. Dagashi Kashi
Dagashi Kashi is all about Japanese sweets. The “
You could go as far as saying the
That’s how “all out” they went in producing this
I’ve watched ALL of Dagashi Kashi, so I know as an
The comedy is littered with scenes that will make the average fan “cringe” and roll your eyes. Because at times it’s a little much to deal with, or even take seriously.
But with that said – it’s still an OK
But that depends on how you see it, and what it is you’re looking for in a comedy series.
6. Zombieland Saga
That’s right – I said it. Zombieland Saga is an
You can think of Zombieland Saga as a “strange” version of Love Live School Idol Project.
Each character has their own personality, quirks and designs that help them “stand out” from the crowd.
But how the
A Boring World Where The Concept Of Dirty Jokes Doesn’t Exist. That’s the LONG title of this series in plan English.
It’s ridiculous, I know. But that’s a simple breakdown of WHAT you’re getting into before watching….
Even though I rate this
First of all – Blue Snow (main character) wears underpants over her head. She does this to make a crude point against the SJW’S she fights against.
And that by itself doesn’t even scratch the surface for how cringy this
Compulsive Gambler (Kakegurui) is extreme in some aspects. Like the facial expressions (that are realistic). But some facial expressions are more on the “dramatic, unpleasant” side.
And then there are characters, especially towards the last few episodes, that are so crazy you’d be mad not to cringe as you see things play out.
That doesn’t make Kakegurui’s a bad
If you love strategy and a “risk taking” approach to playing
9. Love Tyrant
Love Tyrant is the silliest parody I’ll ever see for as long as
No, I mean the kind of silly that makes yo wanna drop the
Then forget everything you’ve just seen.
The concept is taken from Death Note. Every person who’s name is written in the Kiss Note falls in love with the person who wrote it.To the point they’d do ANYTHING.
Even commit suicide if it’s asked of them.
But the comedy is a load of “bollocks” as we say in the UK. At best it’s “Plain” and at worst it’s “a copy and paste of everything you’ve already seen”.
And that’s on top of how much you’ll cringe trying to get through each episode.
Kill La Kill
Kill La Kill – yes, one of my favorite anime shows of ALL time. I’ll never forget it for as long as I live.
But… I admit. This is the type of
To me – Kill La Kill is a rare example of an “
But even still – I’m sure there are fans who might “cringe” no matter how “good”
11. The Familiar Of Zero
The Familiar Of Zero is an
It takes the typical “Tsundere” arch type and drives it so far up the wall it’s out of reach. And insane by “Tsundere” standards.
The main character falls in love with a crazy girl who abuses, whips and “beats the living sh** out of him”, literally. And that to me is the part that makes me cringe. It’s bound to make a lot of “fans” cringe as well (as I know first hand).
But if not – each to their own. Just know the comedy is different to what you’re used to seeing.
And we’ll end this with Re:Zero – Starting Life In Another World. A psychological series by White Fox, and dozens of scenes that will make you “cringe” at how vile it is.
Subaru Natsuki is put through hell. And even worse: he’s not allowed to share his problems with anyone, because of a curse that lives inside him.
You might cringe at the end of episode 1. Or in the beginning of episode 2, or throughout the entire season at various parts of the
I’d say that’s part of the reason it’s so successful and “high rated” in general. Because the characters and the storytelling is on point, regardless.
