A vivid performance divides the reviews! Meganebu! gadget anime review [5.2/10]
Meganebu! – Gadget Anime Review
Souma Akira wears glasses, and he’s a high school student at the rural Himalaya Third Technical School. He loves glasses more than anyone, and is proud to wear glasses. Together with Hachimine Takuma, Minabe Yukiya, Kamatani Mitsuki, and Kimata Hayato, he founds the glasses club (Meganebu!) and share sweat, laughter, tears, and the occasional explosions(!) as they pour their undying passion into eye-wear.

Baka-bu, not Megane-bu 10
An anime set in Sabae city, Fukui Prefecture with the full support of the city. Director Soubi Yamamoto is young, at 22 years old, and has a background in homebrew anime. You can feel the young power from watching this anime! I can honestly say that I’ve never seen an anime like this. The setting is very vivid, with a screen full of color that is just fun to watch. The voice actors do a very good job at expressing the uniqueness of their characters. I’m sure that people will either love it or hate it, but this will be the comedy anime for me this season. I can relax just watching silly high school boys.

Sad all around 10
There’s another pro-eye wear anime this season, so I think this one missed its mark. The comedy is too simple and easy to read, while the performance is very focused on Shaft…so I’m not sure what good points to look for. The target is obviously female, but I’m not sure if they will even succeed in that demographic. The only saving grace for this anime is the voice acting.
Megane Festival 10
Wow, these guys are stupid. Really? X-ray glasses? An anime where the glasses-wearing guys of the megane-bu make glasses. The gap between the content and how they actually present it is quite huge. The anime is a bit unique, but if you like silly performances then the anime is worth a try. According to my completely unfounded predictions, there’s about a 30% chance that this anime will be great.
Seems like a Drama CD 8
Lots of aggressive colors. The coloring would be great for illustrations or opening/ending sequences, but for the full anime…the acting seems a bit forced as well, messing up the tempo. If there’s a point to the coloring/acting it would be OK, but the content is basically a slice-of-life comedy anime…the show might have worked better as a 15-minute anime, it seems very long.
The character designs, art, and coloring all have something a bit off, such as the faces being well done but the shoes seeming odd. There are plenty of good/popular voice actors though, so it might just be fun to listen to this anime.
One of the worst this season 8
I feel sick. All grown up but mentally children. These guys are weird. They took the fantasies of otaku girls and forced them into a setting. That’s what the anime seems like. The presentation is very fancy, but that’s just to hide the fact that they have no content. Their target otaku girls audience won’t even enjoy this. Glasses don’t even play a big role. At all. If the titular eye-wear doesn’t have a meaning in the anime, the anime itself has no purpose. Just boring.
A fetish by Glasses for Glasses 10
As you can tell from the title, the anime promotes glasses using a cast that all wears glasses. The idea is really unique…and there might even be an audience for it. It starts off with everything being just a dream, but apparently this club is made up of fetishists. I guess you could summarize this anime as a glasses-crazed gag comedy anime…? The background noise keeps saying megane megane, and the performance is over-dramatic to the point of becoming fun. It’s hilarious that there are no stereotypically smart people in the glasses-club…they’re all stupid….its amazing!!!
A fan of slice-of-life anime, thin black-haired characters, and voice actors. A huge fan of voice actor Ono Daisuke and director Tsutomu Mizushima.

I watch a lot of anime that is popular online.
From old to new, I’m watching all kinds of anime. Robot, special powers, love, slice-of-life, I will eat anything! My favorites are “Saint Seiya,” “Penguindrum,” and “Pani Poni dash!”
I love anime from the 90s and 00s, voice actors, and idol units. I haven’t watched anime recently so I’m easing my way back in.
