    サンリオ男子

    A show about a high school boys who love Hello Kitty and the Sanrio line of animal mascots. While intended for girls, there's nothing wrong with boys liking them.

    Airs: Saturday, January 6, 2018

    Studio: Pierrot Plus

    The project's premise follows Kouta Hasegawa, a high school boy that loves the yellow Pom Pom Purin dog. By mere coincidence, he ends up attending the same school as Yuu Mizuno, a boy who likes the bunny My Melody. Yuu tells Kouta that there's nothing to be ashamed of for liking Sanrio's cute characters. Together, Kouta, Yuu, Shunsuke Yoshino, Ryou Nishimiya, and Seiichirou Minamoto learn to accept their love of the characters instead of feeling embarrassed.

    Episode 1

    Who said boys couldn't like girly stuff?

    And so it begins with a stage play, as a sign of things to come, but before that, those boys met through their love of Sanrio stuff and more specifically, Pompompurin, who he got from his grandma. And he got bullied for loving such a girly thing and because of that he never saw grandma again. Hase sure is such a wuss there never seeing somebody special in his life again over a plushie. Well, it's pretty much what I have come to expect for a show like this, all about pretty boys getting into girly stuff, which throws together fujoshi bait along with girls toys to create what should in theory be the ultimate experience for fangirls, as well as an advertisement for Sanrio merchandise. But for me, nothing doing.

    So I'll give it another episode per my usual trial policy, but it's pretty unlikely I'll continue on with this.

      What sells cute mascots like hot dudes loving them and bonding over their love of them? Ah, Sanrio, you have no limit.

        Episode 2

        Don't throw it away.

        Kouta meets more friends who are into the Sanrio stuff. And then he totally falls into despair when his Purin is accidentally tossed into the recycling pile as somehow it ended up in the trash and his mother saw that as not wanting it anymore not realizing the sentimental value. But his friends are there and he goes to get it back. So crisis averted, but a new one has arrived in the form of the sister who doesn't approve of the hobby. Yep, that was some more stuff to advertise Sanrio, while feeding the need of fangirls.

        I wasn't planning to stay for long with this show given my low interest level, and as I thought, nothing doing. So drop zone it goes.
