Teen life is tough. And high school life is even tougher. But if you're one of the delinquents sent to Cromartie, it'swell, put it this way, it ain't The O.C. So pack your bags, put on your best tough-guy swagger, and get a lesson in insanity from the losers, bruisers, and thugs at Cromartie High.
The absurd, minimalist comedy Cromartie High takes place at the school parents don't want their children to attend: It's an academic disaster area with a student body comprised of deliquents, thugs, and punks, not to mention a robot, a gorilla, and a mute caricature of Freddie Mercury. Takashi Kamiyama enrolls there to prove that a good student can study anywhere. Although the Cromartie students spend a lot of time bragging about how bad they are, they don't really do much. They talk about fights, but don't engage in any, even when toughs from rival Destrade High kidnap Maede for the umpteenth time. Takenouchi, the boss of the Cromartie freshman gets carsick; none of the freshman will say Mechazawa is a robot, for fear of hurting his feelings; Yamaguchi, the head thug at Destrade dreams of forming a comedy-writing team with Kamiyama. About the only thing that moves in the show is Hayashida's lavender topknot. A good student may be able to study anywhere, but no one learns much at Cromartie High. (Rated TV 14: violence, toilet humor) --Charles Solomon

This is the most bizarre anime that I have seen and I enjoy it. A student with a hair that moves on its own, a gorilla, a robot, and so much more weirdness is great.Published on June 26, 2012 by Schuylar
