I’m sorry for not having been writing anything for over a week now, but I’ve not had the time. We picked up our puppy on Tuesday, and he’s been keeping us busy ever since. What a bundle of energy! But I’ll keep that for the next entry, as I’d like to prepare some photos of him for you all to see. So today it’s all about Sakamoto-san! I finished the series at the beginning of the week, and I’m still not over it yet… I’m quite sure this is one of those series I must own on DVD at some point!
Let’s start at the beginning: Sakamoto starts off his first year at high school, and while the girls are mostly swooning over him, some of the guys are not that fond of this cool dude. The thing about Sakamoto is that you either love him or hate him, but either way, you will eventually end up loving him anyway. His cool and smooth ways would be something to brag about, but Sakamoto uses his skills and intelligence to help others, even if they are out to harm him.
There’s a gang of bad guys at the high school, and they are often trying to embarrass or even hurt Sakamoto, to the point of one of them even wanting to kill him for always stealing the spotlight, and just overall being the good guy. They are not his only problem though, as one of his classmates has a mother who is madly in love with him, and he tries his best to avoid her without being rude.
Most episodes are hilarious and lighthearted though, as we know it from other school comedies. Just watching the weird ways Sakamoto tries to please everyone, whether he knows them or not, is something I would recommend anyone who is looking for a short and fun series. Maybe too short if you ask me, because although a second season doesn’t seem fit after the perfect ending, I’d love to watch more.
At first, I actually thought the official description of the series sounded like something I’d never watch, but I really wanted to know what all the fuss was about, and now I’m hooked. If you like types like Lelouch or Sebastian, you will be sure to like Sakamoto. He is so over the top, that the only other thing I could possibly compare him to would be Bayonetta, but that’s exactly what makes this series special, and something to remember.
Have you watched it yet, and did you like or loathe it? 🙂
