Dropped: Denpa Kyoushi

I don’t even know where to start with this, so I’ll just start at the beginning.

It’s just bad.

I’ve watched a lot of shit. Close to five hundred shows I think, and while that is a small number of the thousands of shows over decades, I’ve only dropped about a dozen lifetime. It’s something I try not to do by really digging into the previews and finding what interests me enough to take the plunge. Denpa Kyoushi was just not that. Not even close.

From my very first joke about doxxing on the internet, it has not gotten any better. It’s a show that makes repetitive use of the letters “YD” to describe the main character’s disposition in life, and it comes off as nothing more than a memetic attempt at proving that Milhouse is still unfunny except for that one time. The animation is horrid, as in the faces just look derpy as fuck:

There were a lot of these, and it visually bothered me. A-1 Pictures is better than this, and I probably should grab the 2012 OVAs and see if they’re any better, because I feel they might be. Apart from that, the characters are bland, the story convoluted and full of overused tropes from every comedy that has taken a potshot at the NEET/otaku lifestyle ever.

Sorry man, but you can’t be Great Teacher Onizuka.

This slot is being replaced by BASS. Fuck your treble.
