Seitokai Yakuindomo – First Impressions

Seitokai can get a little blue at times, but the banter is quick and feisty enough to dig itself out of most potential holes. In Maid-sama we have a female prez in a mostly male school; at this school its seemingly 100 girls for every guy and with a premise like that there’s always the potential to quickly descend into mindless harem territory.

Thankfully this introductory episode takes a totally different (and better) direction: rather than everyone falling in love with the guy, their impressions of him are more varied. This show has lots of weird, possibly maladjusted characters bouncing off one normal one, and the results are more often funny than boring. Rating: 2.5
