Usakame – 01 (First Impressions)

Screen Shot 2016-04-11 at 8.49.40 PM

Ayako has great airbags, Kinako has great strength and Karumi has a heart of gold and somehow ended up in the broom closet. They are the school tennis club.

I’ve used the phrase ‘strong comedic timing’ a lot this season but Usakame is by far the strongest. Like Space Patrol it is incredibly quick, somehow packs a narrative with pleasant emotional appeal within its 4 minute run time, its tremendously ugly, and brilliantly funny.

Seriously, this is the best comedy so far and there’s no pretension or art school wank to it. Watch it now!

  1. Everything went by too fast and it was over before I really got a handle on what was going on. A couple of gags landed, and I liked the natural-sounding voice acting, but mostly I was disoriented – and not in a good, Space Patrol Luluco way. I’d give it a 6.

    1. Griff and I were literally rolling on the floor giggling over this one. We watched it twice. There is so much simple, fun, love packed into it.

      But I’m seriously happy that this is the first show any Rabujoi staffer has ever proposed rating lower than I would. We have a WINNER
