The Pervert Prince and the Stony Cat (Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko.)

(12 episodes)

What’s it about ?

High school romantic comedy.

Characters

Yokoudera, our perverted protagonist. The kind of guy who joins the track & field club just so that he can have an excuse to squat up and down in front of the swimming pool’s window. The club president mistakes it as dedication to the club, and names him her successor ; he’d like to refuse, but couldn’t find the nerve to. That night, he makes an offering to the Stony Cat, which unexpectedly ends up working : he doesn’t have any inhibitions anymore. Considering his filthy mind, that’s not a good thing ; he’s quickly dubbed the “Pervert Prince” across all campus.

Azusa, a high-class student at his school who inherited his inhibitions : she’s now unable to publicly speak her mind regarding his antics for fear of losing face. Hopefully he can convince her to give them back ? (I’m not sure him grovelling like a dog is going to do the job, though.)

Tsukiko, a girl who made a wish to show less emotions on her face at the same time ; she’s now utterly unable to express anything. Her main purpose, beyond probable love interest, is to provide tons and tons of exposition.

Production Values

Utterly unremarkable.

Overall Impression

It’s not a real anime season without a tiresome embarrassment “comedy” is it ? While there are some decent jokes here and there, this is just painful to watch, with every plot twist making the characters more unlikeable and the show less entertaining.

Avoid.

I've been kinda blogging about anime for years... but mostly on forums (such as RPG.net's Tangency) and other sites. This site is an archive for all that stuff, just in case.
