Kyou no go no ni

"Today in class 5-2" is how the title is said in English. It's a show about kids in elementary school, fifth grade to be exact.

This show brought back memories of what it was like to be a kid at that uncertain age. The shows content is rather ecchi but that doesn't stop the fact that it's underlying social base is real. It has some good comedy and interesting parts to it. One of the reasons that i felt like this show was more real was due to the fact that all the kids didn't wear uniforms. While I've gotten used to the whole formal uniform look for high schoolers I still didn't have that kind of experience during my mandatory education. So obviously when i see an anime with people dressed more naturally at something like school i feel like it's much more real to the world I live in.

Anyway the show was good and I had bouts of laughter several times over. Even though the events ended in a sexual manner more than half the time it didn't really bother me. The reason why is because not all the situations were intentional it was just the way they were presented. For instance one girl decides to suck on the main characters finger in order to help get her loose tooth out. Now as odd as it is to use someone else's finger it's not THAT strange. However you can bet that the way the scene was set up it was a bit... little.. ok straight up was suggestive.

Regardless i think the show was played off well. I would suggest it to... guys. Only real problem with it is fan service.
