They´re talking about dicks, and this sums up my first impressions of Binan Koukou pretty well. From the infamous director of Gintama and the Nichibros, I wanted some more boyish, random borderline parody humor, but instead I got just a bit of all three.
My problem with this show is that I think it tries to hard to appeal to the fujofangirls, it tries to be hard to imitate the pretty boy tropes and, in the end, it doesn´t dare to do something outlandish enough to actually make it bizzare, sure, magical boys are cute, but no so much when we´re supposed to take it half seriously and half jokingly, because what´s the point of fighting food when in the end, we still leave with some pseudo deep lesson about the good of the world.
I think Shinji Takamatsu really tried too hard here, Binan Koukou could´ve worked so much better if the characters were actually amusing and not a running gag on repeat. We get it, this dude likes girls, the other dude likes money, the shota boy likes seeing naked men and the other two are the no homo bros. We get it. Now give us something else to chew on for the next 9 episodes.
I don´t neccessarily dislike Binan Koukou, it´s just exactly what I expected it to be. I get some odd laughs here and there, but I just wish the excecution were as strange and funny as the synopsis on paper.
