“Do that and I’ll delete you from existence.”
The whole premise of Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! revolves around a middle school art club and its members. It’s members however are best expressed on the quirky side, with Usami Mizuki being the only one who does or wants to do “regular” art club activities. Hilarity ensues as the cast converse and tries to function as an “art” club.
Each of the characters bring their own personality and taste to the club. With Collette’s randomness, Uchimaki’s love for his waifu’s, a sleepyhead president and a newbie advisor, the comedy that ensues is one that is very light-hearted and funny. Rather than the use of scripted gags, the comedy seems to be more rounded against what is said by the characters and their actions. The conversations between characters are the highlight, with different personality’s often crazy or unique situations occur allowing for laughs to be had. With all the seriousness taken out of situations it makes it an easy watch, without having to think too much.
One of the best parts actually is through its animations. Not essentially the animations itself but the choice of them. With backgrounds representing something freshly painted and a variety of different references to art, it was nice too see that all culminate together in the anime production.
Mizuki Best Girl!
OP/ED: The OP focused around its characters in comparison to that of boys and girls. This being combined with an animation more based around the use of “art” allowed for a great match to the anime. The ED on the other hand could possibly on more of that “quirky” side, where it musical tones really match how unpredictable the actions of the characters can be.
Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! Was it Good?
Kono Bijutsubu ni wa Mondai ga Aru! actually provides to be a hidden gem of comedy. The best way to describe everything is that it’s “quirky”, but in a good sense as you can’t really expect anything, because possibly anything could be turned into a joke. With all of its cast and their actions each episode, it provides to be both a very fun and easy to watch anime.
