Synopsis

Yamada, first name withheld, is a 15-year-old girl who has just entered Takizawa High School. Easily considered exceptionally beautiful, she has only one problem with her own body, she thinks her vagina looks weird and is very self-conscious about it.

Upon entering high school, her dream was to have casual sex with 100 men but therein lies the problem, she believes an experienced partner will tease her about the way her vagina looks or simply the fact that she’s a virgin. She stumbles upon the solution in the form of Kosuda Takashi, a fellow virgin, whom she believes will help ease the transition to more experienced partners.

There’s only one small problem, Yamada doesn’t know anything about sex or the ancient art of seduction, meaning her quest to conquer Kosuda will be a difficult one.

Review

B-gata H-Kei isn’t a show for everyone, but I love the idea of it. It’s about a girl who wants to have 100 sex friends (the perfect woman (jk)) but is so embarrassed that she can’t really have one. That’s all you need and if the idea of that premise sounds good to you this is a show you’ll love!

She initially tries to seduce a very nerdy guy because she thinks he’ll be easy to get, which is completely incorrect. Every nerdy guy (like me) knows that nerdy guys are probably the hardest people to obtain a relationship with,  especially if you have Yamada’s personality.

Speaking of Yamada’s personality, what is it? She is brave to an extent but she keeps on letting herself down. When approaching the nerdy guy she likes to do it on her own terms in circumstances that she has control over, and as soon as any aspect of control is taken out of her hands she panics and acts badly. This way she had the confidence to be in romantic situations but panics at the worst times possible, and I can relate to that.

A greater aspect of the show for me is that Yamada slowly falls in love with the nerdy guy and you realise that they make a really good match, despite the intentions Yamada has to ditch him once she has him as a sex friend.

To move on to the negatives the jokes don’t always hit and they get very repetitive towards the end. We also have a floating tiny version of Yamada with a moustache and beard to give imaginary advice to the audience. I don’t like her input very much because it’s already explaining a pretty easy joke to understand though it’s not so obnoxious that it would make you hate the show or anything like that.

I would simply recommend this to people who like the premise and that’s all.
