The plot for this show is short and sweet; a dumb girl does dumb things. Aho Girl‘s title aho (idiot) is Yoshiko, a banana obssessed idiot who can somehow get a 0% on a multiple choice test. Yoshiko is joined by her friend known so far only as “A-kun,” who has to put up with all of Yoshiko’s foolishness.
It seems that each of these 15-minute episodes are also going to be divided further into a few shorter segments, much like Mangaka-san to Assistant-san was. So it is definitely a show that you can start even if you only have 5 minutes, since you can just watch one of the segments in an episode, and watch the rest of it later. Definitely an anime that fits to your schedule!
As for the actual content, it was your run of the mill slice-of-life anime in terms of about most everything. Nothing except the OP song (which was pretty good) really stood out to me, but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing, since nothing that bad stuck out either.
The animation is average, sometimes being really well done and other times being super generic. There were some jokes that made me giggle more than I should have, but on the other side of the coin, there were some jokes/tropes that were used so many times in this short episode that they already started to get stale. Yoshiko’s banana obsession comes to mind. Though they redeemed themselves a bit at the end with their “indecent kind of banana” joke.
I also particularly enjoyed Yoshiko’s cheap attempt to bribe her classmate for a measly 10 Yen (roughly .10 USD).
I think it is too early to say much, but so far I like the silliness of Aho Girl. But if it continues making its own jokes stale, which I think it will, this show will be buried under some of the better comedies of this season has to offer.
