Fragglepuss Anime Review 184: Eromanga Sensei

Eromanga Sensei

Review by: John Fragglepuss Evans

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance, Manga Authors

First Aired: Spring 2017, 11 episodes

Summary: Like so many high schoolers in Japan, Masamune Izumi is a light novel author. Sagiri is Masamune’s younger sister, a shut-in hikikomori who hasn’t left her room for a year. Masamune wants his sister to leave her room since it’s just the two of them in the house. I think he gets bored, but that’s just my opinion. Also, the two of them are each other’s only family. Sagiri refuses to leave her room, but she is still able to boss her brother around. She even forces him to make and bring her meals when she stomps the floor. Masamune’s illustrator, Eromanga, is a reliable but somewhat perverted artist. Masamune had never met them and figures they are just a filthy, depraved otaku. Of course it comes to light that the one and only Eromanga-sensei is his own younger sister! IN case that wasn’t enough, a beautiful best-selling shoujo manga creator becomes their rival!

I don’t know about this one… I have no problem with strange, but Eromanga Sensei is next level. It’s funny at times, but the whole concept of Masamune writing questionable novels and his younger sister illustrating them, it’s bizarre. I realize it’s anime, and I never thought I would say this, but it’s a bit much. If you’re looking for a less creepy series about manga authors and creation, check out Bakuman. The rivalry between Masamune and the other manga authors was fun to watch.

You might enjoy this if: You’re looking for a quick laugh.

You might not like it if: I’ll say it again, if you’re looking for a less creepy series about manga authors and creation, check out Bakuman.
