Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun | It wasn’t good.

Jaku Chara Tomozaki-kun

Sometimes I binge anime in order to get them over with. Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun happens to be one of those anime where I just had to get through it and call it good because it wasn’t a good anime. Maybe it’s me not understanding the message that the anime was trying to convey. Or maybe it’s just a matter of the story being not good enough.

In my First Impressions post I mentioned how the Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun was questionable at best. In today’s blog post, formerly known as the anime review. I am going to share my reason behind why I think Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun was simply not good enough.

So let us get the non-starters out of the way. The characters are not interesting, without a doubt, you’ve seen each character type before in countless anime. That’s what sucks sometimes, once you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all. No character is truly unique or presents something new and interesting to the viewer.

As you’d also expect, the story is linked to its characters. Which for the record, I thought the story very poor because like its characters it wasn’t unique nor was it interesting. Spoilers, it’s about Tomozaki changing his life around, only for him to not like the direction he has been going down; reverts to his old self and decides to live life his way.

What bothered me most was that we see Tomozaki live this ‘new life’ in accordance with the will of Hinami. A life that saw him break out of his shell and transform himself. Only for him to say at the end of it all “I do not want to live a life dictated by Hinami, I want to live my life my own way”. Which props to him, I hated the fact that he blindly followed Hinami’s word because he felt like that was the only way to enjoy life. I never really understood that and throughout the anime that was the one thing that irked me.

I just hate how it took him until the final two episodes or so to realize that.

Furthermore, I extremely dislike Hinami as a person. In a way, it felt like she had a god complex because she was imposing her will on Tomozaki, as she believed what she was doing was the right way of living life, simply because it worked for her. Like bitch, back the fuck up. Who do you think you are? What drove in the final nail for me was when after Tomozaki had told her that he wanted to live life his own way and not follow her, Hinami straight up ditched him and treated him like garbage. Talk about egotistical.

If this character was a real person, I wouldn’t want to be associated with Hinami in the slightest. For me, Hinami is a BIG red flat — please stay away from me.

I’ve witnessed a lot of weak main character pairings and I think that the pairing of Hinami and Tomozaki is by far the weakest pairing I’ve seen in a while. Like we’ve experienced more growth out of the supporting cast, which by the way, I found to be more interesting than the latter. While we didn’t see much of them, the supporting cast showed way more emotion than Hinami and Tomozaki. Minami was my favourite because despite her happy-go-lucky exterior she was very fragile underneath.

But anyway, overall. Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun simply wasn’t good. I’ll be honest, I am not sure how it got a second season. There are other anime out there that deserve a continuation but don’t have it, but somehow, some way Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun gets one.

The watchability of this anime is very low — it isn’t one a recommend.
