Ao-chan Can’t Study! / Midara no Ao-chan wa Benkyou ga Dekinai
Review by: John Fragglepuss Evans
Genre: Comedy, Romance, Ecchi, Slice of Life, School, Misunderstandings
First Aired: Spring 2019, 12 episodes
Summary: Ao Horie used to proudly proclaim her name in grade school, but upon learning the sensual nature of her name from her depraved father, she has worked tirelessly to change her image and cover up the first impressions that come with her unusual name. She only goes by Horie, tells no one her Ao name, studies endlessly, and works to ensure top grades in her class. Her end goal is to get into a good school, far away from her perverted father. By the way, her father is an esteemed erotic manga author, hence his dirty nature. The problem for Horie begins when her crush, Kijima, confesses that he likes her. From that point on, Horie is a mess of clumsiness and misunderstandings. She falls all over Kijima and shares way too much information. What a crazy situation!
Ao-chan Can’t Study is a lot to handle. There are constant cringe-worthy sexual mishaps between Horie and Kijima. One episode will have Kijima doing ridiculous things while another will have Horie blurting out the most inappropriate comments because of her nervousness around him. Horie’s father is completely absurd, from his tiny and comic-like appearance to his preposterous treatment of his daughter. The things he says to her are wildly inappropriate and should not be said under any circumstance.
You might enjoy this if: You are a depraved individual with some time to spare and no one else around to see what you are watching.
You might not like it if: You blush at the mere thought of inappropriate conversation.
Note to the Viewer: The Ao-chan Can’t Study manga is written by Ren Kawahara, their first original creation.
