Acchi Kocchi, as I may have mentioned before, is an enjoyable comedy series that I’m glad came out this spring, giving me something fun and mindless to enjoy each week. But on top of being really funny, this series was really cute. And I mean, reaaaaaaaaaaally cute. It’s somehow pulled off in a way that I never found it overbearingly cute, but at the same time I was having one of those HNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGG heart attacks pretty much every episode. Such is the point, such is the humor. Not every episode is hilarious, but overall it was the surprise of the season for me.

Acchi Kocchi is one of several comedy anime airing this season, and at first glance you’ll likely see a lot of the cliches and character archetypes found in many high school gag series. It indeed isn’t a very original anime, but the first couple episodes hooked me with its surprisingly high levels of cuteness, which is mixed with a sort of oddball humor that for me ends up fairly hit-and-miss… but when it does hit, it really is quite amusing.

There’s a lot of great anime this season–enough that I think it’s safe to say there’s something good out there for everyone right now. And if you’re a fan of comedy, you’re in luck, since there are several shows within that genre to choose from. There were four in particular that caught my interest, so I thought I’d try going over the positives and negatives of each of them, based on the content from their first two episodes. Which one do you think is my favorite???
