Anyone watching this?  

This summer season for anime is among the best lineup I have ever seen including new season for Attack on Titan and Overlord.  There are also new shows that I thought was clearly outstanding, such as Cells at Work and Planet With.  But there is one show for me that simply rises above the crowd as it would suddenly hit me in the face like a brick and force laughter out of me like the Alien bursting out of my chest.

First the opening

At first glance, it looks like another typical moe show about three high school girls interacting cute about a club that literally does nothing.  So sweet and kawaii...   

Then it hits you that this show is completely insane, and as anti-Moe as you can get.  It grabs the Moe genre and turns all the entrails inside out, then grates it with barbed wire.   The characters are not sweet and cute but they all have selfish intentions, and are constantly manipulating each other.  The show has the best, if not the most wicked, cruel and evil facial expressions on an anime I have seen, and that's just after three episodes.  I thought it was hard to top last season's Hinamatsuri and Hisone and Masutan for facial expressions but right on the first episode it already topped them all.

Three girls trying to out stupid each other is a format I remember, yes, from Nichijou.    

Armpit smelling contest.   The quote is pure gold.

I thought it was hard to top Hisone and Masotan's ending song which was in French, but Asobi Asobase's end song hits you with Metalcore that reveals the true spirit of the anime compared to its moe opening.    With so many idol and moe shows this and the past year, this show drops like a MOAB over them.

Episode 11 was quite particularly savage.  With every succeeding episode, the humor and the facial expressions gets more and more brutal.

Only one episode left, this series needs more.
