Anime Review: Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai


The English name for this anime is "I Don't Have Many Friends," but this statement really contradicts the rest of the anime. In the first episode you're introduced to two people who don't have any friends. They then meet each other. They start a club. They then meet more people. Now they both have friends. So much for a story. The rest of the anime after the main cast is introduced within the first few episodes is about the group going out and doing your average Japanese high school student activities. These include the obligatory beach and festival episodes.

Now that I've summed up the anime, let's get to the actual review. For something so generic sounding, it actually manages to pull it off pretty well. What little story the anime has is not bad, but the meat of this anime is in its jokes, and most of them are pretty good. Also the fanservice. There's quite a bit of that.


The music is fitting, the animation's great, overall the anime is pretty entertaining. This is starting to sound a lot like my last review... While there's nothing that particularly stands out about "I Don't Have Many Friends" over other anime, it does a great job of keeping you interested, and should even have you laughing a couple times per episode. I was especially fond of the Monster Hunter and other video game themed episodes near the beginning of the series. I give Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai an 8/10.
