Finniest Show Since Baka and Test
The show was one of the funniest I have seen in a while. This is going to be a short and sweet overview.... because that is just what the show was short and sweet. Yamada is a high school student, who's one goal in life is to have sex with one hundred guys. This crazy goal, and a totally indecisive attitude make B Gata H Kei one of the absolute funniest anime I have ever seen.
So, Yamada chooses Kosuda as her first target. She picks him because he is in fact a "cherry boy", and totally a "safe bet" as Yamada calls him. So, through multiple mishaps, and an epic first kiss, we start to see some actual chemistry start to develop between the two. Or, are these actual feelings. No spoilers here, you will have to watch to find out. However, poor Kosuda doesn't know which way is up because every time he thinks he knows what Yamada is thinking, she flip flops and changes her mind.
CHARACTERS Brittney Karbowski was chosen to voice Yamada.....PERFECT CHOICE! Thank you FUNImation for making another good casting decision. Having the proper person for the job makes the show so much more appealing, and I will say while she is not my personal favorite she is growing on me much more than I ever thought when I first heard her in My Santa. Overall, the characters score an epic 10. Lovable, very believable, and their overall portrayal of the characters from the manga was awesome.
STORY Honestly I thought it could have been better. It was like watching some guys weird fantasy. However it was well done, and really made me laugh so I will say overall the story gets a 7.
ANIMATION The animation was fantastic. Some real life animation, with some chibi thrown in, it made for the perfect combination of whacked out super crazy sex crazed awesomeness. Overall the animation, especially when Yamada throws a fit, 8\10
This overall is a fantastic show, and absolutely worth your investment, and your time to watch.

Very funny, short and likeable.
The series is very short, but I think comedies like these are best when they don't get dragged out too long or else it loses the fun feel from the start. Overall, what starts out as one hyperactive girl's quest to have sex with 100 guys turns into an amusing series of attempts to get her first time with a guy.
There was a lot of times I was just enjoying the random nature of the direction each attempt takes, and how things just spiral out of control. I especially love the "eros deities" of each character because it reminds me of the avatars of Baka & Test. The artwork was pretty good, characters are fairly cute and you can't help but not want to see how it progresses. Will she actually do it? You'll just have to get anime to find out!
