[Ended] B Gata H Kei: Um...

While the concept is somewhat amusing (actually, it's not that amusing), the story is really not much more than what a 15-year old's daydream could be. While there have been many animes in the past where the main girl is the aggressive perv, B Gata H Kei sets a slightly different tone by having the heroine being both perverted and shy at the same time. Even so, that isn't much of a new concept either, because I vaguely remember there has been some animes in the distant past that have used similar concept. So, all in all, while it does bring some freshness into this particular genre, this is really not much more than a comedic exhibition for panties and censor blocks.

Final scoreboard:

Drama: 78 (B-movie grade school drama)
Comedy: 85 (there are some fun moments)
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 83 (Typical)
Sound/Music: 81 (Nothing left a big impression)
Character: 82 (I don't think there's much depth to them)
Plot: 72 (Could have predicted it from the beginning)
Ending: 71 (Who hasn't see that coming?)

Re-watch value: 40 (Definitely don't need to see it the second time)

Overall: 74 - B-movie grade anime

If you have too much time to burn, sure, watch it. Otherwise, I don't think it's worth your 4 hours of life.
