Again with the endings that don’t actually end anything. This is fast becoming a trend which is very unsatisfying. Sure I could go read the light novel but I can’t really be bothered.
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai was a great anime, although the story wasn’t complex the characters and comedy were close to perfect. Well some of the characters anyway. Unlike a lot of anime similar to this I think I might actually remeber the characters name for more then a month after it finished. Yukimaru and Sena’s names and will probably stick with me but I have a feeling the a year from now I won’t remember Kodaka, Yozora or Rika’s names.
The entire first half of the last episode was the retelling of the first episode from Yozora’s prespective. Now i’m not saying it was bad to do that but it certainly didn’t need to take half an episode to recap. Yozora denied Kodaka the use of there old nicknames which although seems like a shallow conversation is actually pretty deep. By not letting him use her old nickname she was pretty much saying they aren’t close friends yet. Even though she obviously loves him she has trust issues which stop her from getting closer to him.
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai is a good example of a brainless comedy which requires next to no though on the viewers behalf and that is why it has reach 65/145 on my top anime list. That’s not overly high but it is one of the highest of it genre so thats something to think about if you are considering watching this or finishing it. There is the possibility of a second season much like C3 but nothing has been announced at this point. But don’t fret because there is about 10 new comedy anime starting in the Winter season and I’m sure some of those will be filled with fan service.
