Fuzakenna: B Gata H Kei - How To Make An Excellent Show With No Rewatch Value

Fuzakenna writes: "B Gata H Kei is rock solid – I have nothing negative to say about it. I was constantly impressed by it’s writing, which created a hilarious and believable romance that, for once, made real progress at a satisfying pace as the series continued. Every episode made me laugh, and the jokes struck me with their cleverness – often the punchline is a bit of music, a very quick cut-away, or a background detail, so that the joke doesn’t feel too obvious nor intrusive, but a bit of fun cleverly spliced into a continuing scene. The running gags stayed funny and didn’t get old, which is way more than I can say about most school anime with running jokes."

There are very few shows I can stand to watch more than once. Particularly comedies--hell, the only comedies I can really watch again and again are Azumanga Daioh and Planes Trains and Automobiles. Maybe certain episodes of Hyakko and K-ON.

Other than that, only the occasional action series--Full Metal Panic, Votoms, Legend of Galactic Heroes. For the most part, thought, I don't get any value out of watching something more than once, no matter how good it is.

Xof - yeah, a lot of comedies are harder to rewatch, but there are some series that are worth it - most notably the SHAFT comedies, such as Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei and Pani Poni Dash - it's literally impossible to catch all the jokes in those shows on your first viewing.
