Ishida & Asakura Episode #12 Anime Review

Yeah. Well, that was certainly interesting. The last episode avoids going with an opening/credits sequence and just puts the credits throughout the episode so that it can bring in the cast in full as it shows the lengths that Ishida will go through in order to save Asakura. It’s just as random as other parts of the series and one of the stranger short form anime series we’ve seen in the last couple of seasons to e sure. It has its surreal moments that definitely made me laugh and was just plain odd overall with its focus on flowers, boobs and the bonds of friendship. There’s little to really be said about the show, but considering you can watch a whole season in twenty-four minutes, it’s an easy thing to just watch and to say that you’ve seen. It’s certainly not a short-form show that I’m hoping gets brought over, but I’d love to see how a dub of it would turn out. READ MORE...

Ishida & Asakura Episode #11 Anime Review

Asakura’s still intent on teaching since he wants access to high school girl boobs in his future, but he’s at least now starting to hedge his best a bit. The question to Ishida becomes that if he does work in the flower shop, would he be able to fondle breasts there? That just leads to other problems though as Asakura makes it clear that in order to run a flower shop, you have to be able to smile. And when you think about it, we haven’t seen Ishida smile at all throughout the show as both he and Asakura are dead-faced throughout. So that has his "friends" doing what they can to teach him to smile. The way it gets done is pretty hilarious though as it’s not what they expected to work, nor was it planned. READ MORE...

Ishida & Asakura Episode #10 Anime Review

The series isn’t one to really expand on its cast of characters, but it does have a little fun here as we get introduced to Yamada’s younger sister. It’s something that Asakura wants to know more about her, but the realization that she’s likely as even as he is causes Ishida to suggest simply killing her since they do that to Yamada often enough. Of course, as we get to know said sister, you can see quirks of Yamada in her to be sure, but also a potential for romance of all things, which is just kind of surreal to even think about.

Ishida & Asakura Episode #09 Anime Review

With Ishida working in the maid cafe, and being quite attractive as he wears the outfit, the humor takes an amusing turn as he works hard to make the money for the flower shop. The shop that Asakura has no intention of ever working in. What’s complicating things for Ishida now is that Yamada has taken a real interest in him as Alice, not realizing they’re the same person. And that sets up Yamada to trying to beat him down, which just won’t happen. It’s amusing to see the way Ishida is living a lie for Asakura and getting caught up in such a weird and unusual situation. READ MORE...

Ishida & Asakura Episode #08 Anime Review

With the financial impact of what Ishida wants to do in order to open his flower shop, Asakura makes it clear that he needs to raise the money for it first since Asakura can’t contribute to it. Mostly because his focus is all on the boobs. Ishida’s not without a plan though as he’s going to work himself to the bone in order to make the ten million yen he needs to do it. And that means a job at the local cafe, albeit a maid cafe. The boss puts him through a transformation into Alice and he pulls it off in a disturbing, disturbing way. The way of the maid is explored clearly here and it takes some very, very awkward turns along the way. READ MORE...

Ishida & Asakura Episode #06 – 07 Anime Review

The weird obsessive nature of the characters continues to be one of the more amusing parts of things here, such as the way Ishida is just so boob focused. It can get old quickly in a lengthy series but manages to work well enough here, especially with his deadpan style. His interest in the daughter of his teacher is comical since it’s a young girl who is the complete opposite of Kinoshita. Which is awkward to think about considering Kinoshita is a guy dressing up as a woman and is far more stacked and feminine. The big problem is that the girl is just so young that she doesn’t have what he’s looking for, which makes it even more awkward. READ MORE...

Ishida & Asakura Episode #05 Anime Review

With the kinds of goals that both men have, they really need to get an education and go to college. And for that, Asakura is hoping that Ishida will help him so he can achieve his dream of being surrounded by high school girl boobs someday. Even though he is right now. Of course, as much as they need to get an education, they have to deal with high school first and that means a new teacher whose crotch does all the talking. Yamada is amusing right from the get go and he puts the kids through the paces in a pretty rough way, including giving Asakura the hardest problem of all by asking him to add five plus three. It’s comical with how it unfolds and how Yamada disciplines the kids in the hall with how they act. READ MORE...

Ishida & Asakura Episode #04 Anime Review

After some really amusing bits in the previous episode in regards to a certain teachers reality, the show shifts to something a bit more reasonable. With Ishida going on again about the flower shop that he wants to open with Asakura, the talk turns to the funds needed to get the business off the ground, which seems like it’ll run about ten million yen. With Asakura not having the funds to do that, things turn silly as the attempts to gain the funds is basically a whole lot of threatening. Asakura does do his best in order to raise the funds, but he comes up woefully short. But his efforts certainly are rewarded in another way as Ishida is even more intent on achieving this goal seeing just how much Asakura will give towards it. READ MORE...

Ishida & Asakura Episode #03 Anime Review

Life as a student is hard but there’s also the problem where during some classes, for many reasons, the use of the bathroom just isn’t possible. Such is the issue that Ishida and Asakura here, as Asakura has to relieve himself and tries to get Ishida to go with him, though he doesn’t have to do the same thing. When the two head there, things go bizarrely when the beautiful and busty Kinoshita struts right in and uses the urinal. The whole "trunk" angle that anime uses has, sadly, amused me for years and years now, so seeing it play out here is comical, especially as we do get one final frame gag that at least explains it in a big way.

Ishida & Asakura Episode #02 Anime Review

While the first episode wasn’t something that completely sold me, I’ll admit that it’s Cromartie High School vibes kind of won me over a bit with its particular charms, though it was certainly trying to deal with its short run time as best as it could. On the plus side, Asakura’s intent to focus on boobs continues here well enough as we learn about his dream to be a teacher at an all girls school. And hopefully a high school at that. But Ishida is still wanting to be the flower shop partner with him and continues to promote that dream. Which is pretty hard to imagine considering both of them are just awful when it comes to their grades and even their training goes in bizarre directions that don’t make any sense. That Asakura actually manages to score lower after training says a lot. READ MORE...
