Hyakko (Ended): Outrageously Funny

After watching the first two episodes of this series, I made sure that I do not have anything to drink while watching this anime. Because if I do, there's a good chance somewhere during the episode, a sip of it would end up shooting out of my nose. Hyakko was outrageously funny partially due to the randomness of its contents, just like Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei except Hyakko managed to stay on the creative side.

Hyakko and Kannagi were both candidates for the top short season comedy for 2008. After finishing Hyakko, I have to say, it doesn't matter what stunt Kannagi pulls in the last episode, Hyakko would be getting the

Best Short Season Comedy Anime of 2008


Final scoreboard (out of 5):

Drama: 3 (Not really its focus)
Comedy: 4.75 (Rolling on the floor laughing)
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 4 (Interesting)
Sound/Music: 4 (Some nice BGM in early episodes)
Character: 4.5 (Rich and plentiful)
Plot: N/A
Ending: 4 (Quite a smart way to end it)

Re-watch value: 4 (Many scenes are still funny to watch again)

Overall (not average): 4.5 ~ Outrageously funny

Recommendation: If you just want some plain laughter, no story attached, this is for you. I guarantee that you'll get some good laugh out of this one.
