Synopsis

Under Nariyuki Yuiga's devoted tutelage, his classmates Rizu Ogata, Fumino Furuhashi, and Uruka Takemoto are finally pulling average test scores on their worst subjects. But time is ticking, and there is still a long way to go before the three geniuses of Ichinose Academy are ready for their upcoming university exams. Meanwhile, the girls still struggle to balance the pursuit of their dreams with their growing affections for their unsuspecting tutor. Joining them are Mafuyu Kirisu, a teacher with strong views about education and talent because of her past as a rising figure skater, and Asumi Kominami, a graduate from their school aiming to attend a national medical university. With these two additions, the group of six is livelier than ever before. Completely caught up in hilarious antics with his new friends, Yuiga finds that his last year of high school now includes a lot more than just going to class and studying. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Bokuben season 2 succeeds in building upon the foundations laid by season 1 very well. To save you time, if you liked Bokuben from the start, you will love season 2. If you didn’t, you probably won’t like this either.

Bokuben is really simple in its premise and doesn’t try to be something that it’s not. It is a Harem Rom-Com. It’s not trying to be really profound or thought provoking, it’s meant to be an Otaku self escapism mechanism. Simple. However, that doesn’t mean there’s no story to be found here, and that’s where in my opinion, season 2 makes significant improvements over the first season.

Season 1 of Bokuben was more of a flavour of the week type of excursion with Nairyuki being shipped with one of the girls each week with little in the way of actual overarching plot development or advancement. Season 2 improves on that with a very clear and obvious advancement of the plot each week. Each episode does build upon something and lead into the others. In fact, we get a character arc for each of the girls this season that really ads some much needed development for a few like Senpai and Takemoto. Other more established ships like Fumino and Sensei get their screen time as well, but it’s with clear purpose. To give an example, there’s a Fumino arc which really gives you important background information about her and her family and in my opinion, serves as the highlight of the season.

Overall, Bokuben 2 is confident in what it is, doesn’t try to be something it’s not, builds upon the foundation we got in season 1 and is everything you’ve come to love or not love from the series. The characters are cute, funny, silly, nervous and most importantly, they can’t learn. Bokuben season 2 gets a 10/10 from me.

Have you ever watched an anime and thought to yourself that such things like "developed characters that experience growth throughout the series and end in a different place from where they started" or "jokes that are written and develop onto each other too leave many laughs to come in future watches" maybe perhaps "a story that actually gives the audience this thing called PROGRESS" are becoming such a bore for you as a viewer? Well do I have got good news for you then. Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai! is the show for you because it has not only done away with all of those pesky things but instead has substituted it with such wonderful things as... .... well nothing. I'm sure many people will try to convince you of this shows many "positives" such as cute girls, and..... cute girls, and more importantly.....more cute girls. Fear not though for i'm hear to tell you this one gleaming positive in this pile of PTSD educing trash. There are in fact (wait for it) CUTE GIRLS. If all you want is cute girls then boy here's your show because this show has plenty of those. They might not have you know a personality but hey they're cute. Sadly though, this isn't like the first season where at the very least each new girl was worked into the story to make sure it didn't feel stale, no this time you have all of them from the start and boy just wait to see how long it takes you to want to kill all of them. Maybe this show could have been better. Maybe if the show had desired to grow up and spend the all new 13 episodes of it's second season picking it's OTP and developing the couple into a relationship we as the audience could have fallen in love with and enjoyed watching grow to a climax and conclusion. Is that what happened? No. Instead as an audience what do we get? We get 13 episodes of "comedic misunderstandings" that try to be funny and replace any attempt at actual comedy because hey watching a guy fumble around end up in "scandalous" situations with so many of his Hera... i mean friends is what passes as comedy now. We also get the shows most egregious offence IMO which is it simple can't pick a couple. At least SAO of all shows established a couple (not that it really mattered) and most other good harem shows establish a couple. Then we as the audience have a reason to watch as we get to see the couple either spend the show becoming a thing (which is overused and boring but at least something to grab on to) or be come a couple and go through actual couple issues (which is harder to find but when found is rewarding). Both of these would have been better then spending 13 episodes in a fight between the main character who has no personality and is severely autistic with girls to the point that the girls could strait up ask him out and he wouldn't know what they mean, and the girls who are as interchangeable as the show itself seems to think they are given how much it pretends like the MC will end up with one of them. This show isn't for me (if that wasn't obvious) but i genuinely mean this. If you found enjoyment in this show, i'm happy for you. Really i am. It means you still enjoy this type of series. I'm not the audience for this show and to anyone who (despite my comments in the beginning being on the sarcastic side) dose want more from their romance (because this show is romance don't try to tell me otherwise) then trust me when i say this show isn't for you either.
