Boy, this season is just off to a fantastic start.
Well, the male protagonist does have a personality. I guess it makes very few overtures of pretending like it has any action either, so it didn't do it badly; it just didn't do it at all. Aaaand that's about where my lofty praise for this will have run its course. It's a slow, dull episode, punctuated only by the protagonist popping up to be assault someone, and be assaulted in return. That's also about the sum total of the jokes as well. I guess it also likes to announce how lazy/terrible he is too. Does that count as a joke? There's a little bit of past-angst referenced, but no actual story or narrative set up; just "pervert teacher who doesn't want to teach harasses teenage girls by acting like a horny 13 year old." Start, middle, end. So no matter how much better having anything for a personality is better than simply being a sack of crap, that's not going to help when the rest of the cast are all sacks and after twenty-five minutes, any kind of narrative is something still in potentia.
But of all the dumb fanservicey things about it, especially the fetishy school uniforms, I think the thing that gets under my craw the most is how they're all wearing their underwear halfway down their thighs. Come on, Japan. Crack open a Victoria's Secret or something. Talk to a girl. Try to understand basic physics as it relates to the hips and clothing. It's not even like it's that fanservicey either though, but no less creepy for it being an adult in a place of authority attempting to abuse it to harass teenagers. So maybe crack a book on sexual harassment too while you're at it, Japan.
