Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun – Special – 01


It’s Pocky Day (11/11) and in celebration I’m posting some more short reviews! First up is Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun’s Blu-Ray micro episode bonus feature. It clocks in at just three minutes long and contains a dizzying 5 scenes, each with a carded break.

The Story: Chiyo imagines Nozaki in costume. Waka is still flustered over the ‘Hot Guy’ who was with Seo at the festival and still doesn’t know it was Kashima. Hori and Nozaki aren’t helpful when asked about it.

Then everyone agrees to join the Drama club for a summer get away. Even Mikorin is coming.


While nothing special, GSN dash K’s bonus contains all the elements of a normal episode. It’s cute, charming, full of people not understanding implications and unresponded-to love. The manga-notes Nozaki takes while talking to Waka are the funniest moment and probably the highlight of the whole 3 minutes.

Unlike Sabagebu!’s 11 minute bonus, This is way too short to be meaningful and it doesn’t add anything to last season’s finale. Nozaki doesn’t even resolve its own micro-story.

But if you’re feeling down, take a few seconds out of your day to give it a view. GSN dash K excels at building warm, happy smiles!
