Editorial Reviews

OMG! There’s this girl at school, Yamada, who wants to make like a hundred sex friends. She totally thinks she can de-virginize one hundred different boys! Can you believe that? That’s like every boy in the school. Who does she think she is? I heard from my friend’s neighbor’s cousin’s lab partner that Yamada’s never even been kissed. Oh. My. God. I would totally die. That’s like burn all your makeup and shave off your eyebrows embarrassing. I can’t even think about it. Today at lunch I saw Yamada flirting, like for reals flirting, with that geek Kosuda. You know the guy. Photography club, no muscles, boring face, kind of reminds you of a black-and-white movie. Super lame. If Yamada can’t even make the sex with him, she’ll never score a hundred cherry boys. She needs to take like Sex Ed or something because I heard she can’t give it away!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Rare Authentic Sex Comedy March 1, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
Stop me if you've heard this one before, anime fans. A nerdy guy is a giant pervert, and goes to a school filled with voluptuous young ladies. His eventual goal is to get in close with them and score, but he ends up falling for the childhood friend/nerdy one/headstrong one. It's a formula that's been used time and time again, and for some reason, a lot of people seem to not get sick of it one bit. To put it lightly, I am not one of those people. But by taking the formula and replacing that guy with a cute girl, and adding in an extra bit of teen pathos, "B Gata H Kei" rises above the rest to a series that's hard not to recommend.

Yamada is perhaps more perverted than even the boys in her school. Her life goal is to bed 100 guys before graduating high school, and with a whole wave of them wanting to get with her, one would figure that it wouldn't be that hard. But one would be mistaken, because the poor girl is clueless when it comes to seducing men, on account of the fact that actually having sex outside the context of romance makes her nervous to the point of blushing intensely. And so it ends up that her first "victim", an average Joe by the name of Kosuda, becomes somewhat of a love interest throughout the whole series. Yamada attempts to fornicate with him time and time again, but it always fails on account of her being too darn bashful for her own good.

This seems like a set-up for a nonstop barrage of fan service, but what sets this show apart from the rest is how little of it there actually is. Panty shots are generally obscured, there's never any tasteless nudity, and the outfits the female characters are garbed in are far more modest those found in other series cut from similar cloths.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad January 14, 2012
Format:Blu-ray
This is actually a pretty funny anime with a sexy, naughty side to it. The story revolves around a 15 year old high school student and her quest to achieve sexual relations with 100 different people. However, her insecurities as a virgin, causes her to reject everyones who's asked her out and to search for someone, who's also a virgin, to bestow her first time to. The story revolves around Yamada and her quest to seduce Kosuda while along the way also finding her true love. This is the basic premise for this 12 episodes series. What makes this series funny, to me, are the inner feelings of Yamada and some of her friends. There's a lot of fan service but with no real nudity until the last episode which has two scenes, one in the first half and one in the second. I watched all episodes in Japanese with English subs but did try the English dub for about 10 minutes. They weren't bad but I just found the Japanese ones to be funnier. There were a scene or two that I had trouble reading the subs as they were white layered on top of a light background. Other than this, they were easily legible. I also watched both blu ray and DVD to see the differnce in the two. The blu rays were formatted to fit my TV nicely while the DVDs were shown in widescreen. As far as quality goes, there's no comparison. If you have a blu ray player, watch the blu ray. My only complaint would be I wish these companies would just sell them individually as this would probably save me an extra $10 or so as I have no intentions of ever watching it on DVD. Maybe they need to sell them in three formats, DVDs, blu rays and combo packs.

The series comes in two DVD cases with one housing the DVDs and the other housing the blu rays. Both fit nicely into the cardboard outer box.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great series, great production, except.... February 8, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I can't add to any of the 5-star reviews in this thread. They pretty much say it all, and for all the right reasons. This a really fun anime to watch.

My only con is the subtitles. One of the other favorable reviews noted that sometimes the subtitles were difficult to see because they were white on a light colored background. The reviewer found them legible otherwise.

Unfortunately, I had to struggle with the "otherwise" scenes too. The font size was too small, the outlines too thin, and the color completely wrong for many of the backgrounds.

I'm one of those eccentrics who likes to watch these anime programs in Japanese with English subtitles. I just enjoy Japanese voice acting more than English dubbing. For this reason I've seen many anime with Japanese audio and subtitle tracks selected. To my eyes, the best combination of properties for subtitles has been:

font size: at least 12pts, as viewed on a 40-inch LCD TV from a distance of about 8 ft.
font: arial bold or arial black, or any sans-serif font in bold
color: yellow
outline: black, thick enough to be easily seen on as many different colored backgrounds as possible. This property is a little tough to quantify. Decent quality assurance would have to verify what works best on a frame-by-frame basis.

I don't know why, but yellow subtitles have worked the best against most colored backgrounds - even yellow, provided the letters are outlined in black. White letters with black outlines, on the other hand, are difficult if not impossible to see on many light-colored backgrounds.

In fact, I give Yamada's subtitling ZERO STARS. I've never seen subtitles this poorly done.
