    女子高生の無駄づかい

    A show about high school girls wasting away their time as high school students doing all sorts of crazy things.

    One day out of boredom, Tanaka decided to give her classmates nicknames based on their quirks. Her friend Sakuchi became "Ota" for her nerdy interests, and her other friend Saginomiya became "Robo" because of her expressionless personality. In retaliation, her friends decided to name Tanaka "Baka." These are the ridiculous days of three high school friends claiming (or not) the height of their youth.

    Episode 1

    What's in a name?

    That was some pretty hilarious stuff there as Nozomu, or rather Baka, says a lot of stupid things, such as the fact that she didn't even know that only girls attend an all-girls school as it's called that for a reason. And then there's Loli, who stands out for being the one who looks like she isn't old enough to attend this school. Then there's the teacher, whose head isn't exactly on straight talking about relationships and stuff when he should be teaching these girls useful stuff. And then there's the opening that's funny as hell. So far, this is shaping up to be a nice comedy.

    So with that, the usual rules apply, and seeing how much I laughed that it has a pretty good chance of making the cut.

      Episode 2

      Magical girl mentality.

      This episode focuses primarily on the mangaka as she's finding out how tough it is, and having fallen into a slump, she just picks up something she drew as a girl, and she's back on her feet. That magical girl dream was really something. And then Yamamoto puts on the chuunibyou act on the teacher, and that part there at the end is really funny. While not as funny as the first episode, this one certainly has some interesting insight on the characters and how they are just, well, wasting away.

        Re: Episode 2

        This was far better than the first. Mostly due to Wota being a far better character than Baka. Also I suspect at this point I'm going to keep watching for the promise of scenes with characters like Yamai.

          Episode 3

          Lolis won't be lolis.

          And now, an episode that's focused on Loli as while she looks like a little kid, she's actually the same age as Baka and friends. She's quite hostile when around Baka, but that's not her true nature at all. She's just like any other girl with her appearance, and her grandmother is nothing like that strict person Baka thought she was as she would find out for herself. Not exactly sure why she took that thought to the extreme, but nevertheless it goes to show how crazy things are in this show. While Loli didn't give into temptation when Baka tried to buy her a plush, she did when she bought some snacks instead of meat during a grocery store trip. And it wasn't really necessary for her to come to school just because Loli forgot her gym clothes as she can put up with oversized clothes borrowed from another student for a day. Once again, this show really does a great job at what a comedy is supposed to do as the jokes continue to be funny.

          So with that, I'm ready to call this show in as it has been the best comedy of the season.

            Episode 4

            Studying in class and about the class.

            This episode is focused on Majime, and she's an honors student who has been studying hard, and on more than what gets taught inside the classroom. She's really intrigued by Baka seeing that she has been on her mind. Heck, she even braved a common cold hoping to see her after she borrowed her notes for a test, and as expected they were still just as bad. And then she sent out in the rain even getting herself even more wet while talking with Robo. And then she talks with Yamai as she's looking out. Pretty nice way to bring Majime into the fold as she's relatively normal compared to the other girls at the school.

              Episode 5

              Breaking out in hives.

              Here comes Lily, a transfer student who is half-Australian. She's the envy of the class as she's quite the mature-looking one, except there's one problem in that she's allergic to guys, as well as Baka. Even when she doesn't know she's touching Baka, she still breaks out. This had the potential for some great yuri there, but because of her strange allergy that it was not meant to be, so Baka is out of luck. The way things went down was pretty hilarious.

                Re: Episode 5

                It's interesting to compare Lily, Kanade, and Yamai. All three lean towards girls, but in a different way. Lily is about scoring points rather than truly loving someone. Kanade is actually in love. Yamai seeks a story book type love, her ideal.

                Baka can often get tiring. Thankfully the show has other characters to make up for her.

                  Episode 6

                  Get bewitched.

                  Here comes another weirdo in Majo, and she's doing a lot of stuff only witches would do. But above all, she doesn't have any friends as she doesn't really make the effort to do so. However, Baka slowly changes that mindset as Majo and Loli go out to see movies together. Pretty funny stuff once again as Majo sure acts the part of the witch, especially at the end there when she preserves a candy wrapper that's a winner. Quite a big way to break into Baka's circle of friends.

                    Episode 7

                    She's too good for the real world.

                    And now, an episode about Yamai as she's a chuunibyou and is looking every bit the part, from those "pimples" that form a perfect circular shape around parts of her body to the contact lens, eyepatch, and gas mask, plus all the other junk she acquired to pull off this act. She has quite the mindset there that would even make Rikka jealous. Not to mention approaching life's problems as if she's a denizen of another world, like her crane game failures, and dragging that face cutout board with Baka to school. It's clear that she doesn't exactly have her mind in the right place. That was quite funny to see her delusional antics going wild.

                      Episode 8

                      A perfect excuse for a pool party.

                      It's summer, and as much as Baka wants to take a trip to Hawaii or Dubai, it's just not going to happen, not unless they can come up with a lot of cash. Even so, she's undeterred as she tries to win the grand prize in the shopping district lottery and selling it, but that just wasn't going to happen even after buying all those swimsuits. So instead, she comes up with the barnacle bikini urban legend, and then the girls go to school after dark to put those other urban legends into action with Loli and Lily the ones being scared. And in the end, it's a pool party at the school pool. Next day, Baka thinks that pool party was just an urban legend seeing that the pool she thought she was dry. Quite a bizarre turn of events here going to show just how much Baka is out of her mind.

                        Episode 9

                        Making a fashion statement.

                        Loli has been wearing childish and boyish stuff seeing that she still looks like a kid, and she tries to dress more womanly, but just doesn't have the figure to pull it off. That attempt to look like a B-cup failed spectacularly seeing that her padded bra ended up slipping. And then Lily and Majime come over to try and doll her up a bit under the guise of a study session after looking totally weird painting eye brows on. That went better as she's wearing a cute outfit that's suited for her. They ought to just stick with that as any other wholesale changes and transformations just looks totally silly.

                          Episode 10

                          Do the math.

                          And now, an episode focused on Robo as she's the genius of the group, and while she could have gone to any school she wants, she opted to stick with Baka and Wota and attend the all-girls school. Then there's Takahashi, who has been stalking Robo and approaches her asking for where she got that book, and later on explaining how friendly he is with this Aoyama guy. As it turns out, Aoyama is a guy and is going all yaoi over him. Then the ending is quite hilarious there as Yamai left her stuff at the ramen shop, and she's rapping about it. More great craziness there going to show that these girls are just an odd bunch doing the oddest things.

                            Episode 11

                            Meet the composer.

                            It's Christmas, and this episode is focused on Wota as she's in a quite a big slump. So to get over it, she sings and uploads her song to the internet, and then goes out to buy a CD from her favorite composer, not realizing that this guy just so happens to be her homeroom teacher Waseda. While this show isn't as funny as the other episodes, it does an excellent job in developing Wota's character seeing that she needed to get over the hump trying to make it as a mangaka. One more episode left as it's the new year, and given Baka's fortune, things figure to get out of hand.

                              Um Wota was very pretty and err she at least knows the face behind the composer now. Still I guess it's a good reminder of one thing. Any thing created from a simple post to a novel has a face behind it, but you need to be prepared that the face might not match your assumption.

                              Over all this show has been fun so far, but I'm mostly here for Lily, Loli, Majime, Yamai, and Majo at this point.
