Back Street Girls: Gokudolls

Back Street Girls: Gokudolls
Back Street Girls: Gokudolls

I'm really suspicious to talk about this anime, I'm a huge fan and I really enjoyed it because it's a comedy anime with a story totally different from any other I've watched.

The story starts as follows, 3 yakuza did shit and their boss told them to choose between losing some body part to pay for the shit they did or becoming Pop Idols.

They chose to become Pop Idols and the story starts there, well I really almost died laughing several times and the best part was anime was dubbed and is available on Netflix.

Despite being a comedy anime it is aimed at the adult audience (+18)

To fix this, the yakuza boss hires Mandarin Kinoshita, a legendary manager who has never had an idol group under his control.


Grand Blue

Grand Blue
Grand Blue

This is one of the best comedy anime I've watched in my life!

Grand Blue has a lot of Cachaça and several jokes with alcoholic beverages so it is very good and different from all other animes of the comedy genre that I have seen.

The anime is a Slice of life and so there’s no action or anything.

The story follows Iori Kitahara, who returns to the coastal city to study at a local college and on the first day he ends up participating and entering a diving club where everyone there just pisses off.

Just for that little description it is already interesting I will try to find some good video and add it here for you to see this masterpiece!

The Amanto, aliens from outer space, invaded Earth and conquered feudal Japan.

However, one man, Gintoki Sakata, still has the samurai's heart, although, for his love of sweets and his work as a Yorozuya (does everything), it cannot be expected.

Accompanying him in his line of work are Shinpachi Shimura, a boy with glasses and a strong heart, Kagura with his umbrella and his apparently bottomless stomach, as well as Sadaharu, his large pet dog.

Obviously, these strange jobs are not always simple, as there are often disagreements with the police, rebel rebels and murderers, often leading to funny but unfortunate consequences.
