High schooler Tomori Hinowa is called to the principal's office one day to hear some shocking news: he's getting married! A mysterious fluffy creature called Kanenogi has chosen him as their wife, and despite Tomori's initial misgivings, he decides to accept. What follows are a series of delightful tales from this new couple's monstrous married life. Adorable and absurd, Jingai-san no Yome is a story that will leave audiences equally charmed and bemused after each short episode. [Written by MAL Rewrite]
A show like Jingai-san no Yome merits a simple review. It’s a simple show and there isnt much to it but it is nice for those that are like me and like what its selling. The show revolves around cute boys and weird creatures that pick them as their wives. Note: not husbands, wives.
You may wonder how any of that makes sense and why they would be wives but that’s part of the appeal of the show
Its basically monster boy x human boy yaoi featuring the human boys thrown into the wife role. It resembles art and scenarios I’ve seen on deviantart and tumblr. Espeically with how the boys are designed. They look less conventional and more scene-like, with multicolored hair, messy or long hair, and sometimes often scowls.
In my eyes it’s clear what this anime is marketed towards. And for that market I think it’s a decent show that provides some cute moments between the boys and gives the heartwarming romantic moments that one wants to see. As someone looking forward to the anime originally while I wish it could have been more in depth it at the very least didn’t fail in providing me something I enjoyed and hit the base notes that it needed to.
That said because it’s so barren it’s really only for fans of this subsection of yaoi and those that want to see cute boys becoming wifes. While it does that fine there nothing else to the show and nothing that’d merit someone from outside that taste to watch. Which basically brings it down to this, if you like what its offering it’s a good use of 36 minutes. And if not, then the show probably isnt for you. Which is fine. Personally I think what it does right is fine enough.
