Joshi Kausei chapters 1-8 review

Joshi Kausei  Story & Art by Ken Wakai chapters 1-8 Review

From Crunchyroll: “Who needs dialog when you're this cute? The beautiful (but unlucky) Momoko, the cool, collected Shibumi, and the refreshingly innocent Mayumi star in a "silent manga." No speeches, no dialog! Just pictures, sound effects, and three high school girls living their daily lives.”

                Slice-of-life Japanese animation and comics has two modes: mindless and coming of age stories. Joshi Kausei falls into the former category. What establishes this series apart from its countless peers is the lack of dialogue bubbles. Art wise it also is very nice to look at as well. The series is a pleasant diversion with chapters being rather short.

                The series will not thrill or captivate most people. The fan service feels uncomfortable and out of place and clashes with the tone of the series as a whole. All-in-all Joshi Kausei is off to a decent start though it has its flaws. If one is not averse to them however this may prove to be a pleasant enough break in a day.
