GA Geijutsuka Art Design Class Review

Story:
Five friends are working through their days at their school, Ayanoi High School. Together they learn about the arts, goof off and interact with the many “chicken lords” on the grounds.

Violence:
There’s really no violence in this show besides slap stick. Although there is one episodes where some upperclassmen create a haunted house, complete with corpses with nails through them and such. It’s actually kinda scary looking at first and thus bunks this show up to a PG rating.

Language:
Nothing really to say here. There are a few d-mns, but since this show is a light comedy, there’s not much to say.

Nudity:
Art. That’s the only reason there’s any nudity at all in this show. In one episode they go to a museum and there are nude artworks there. To be honest though, this is true to life. I’ve never been in a museum before that didn’t have nude art. So it’s not like it was thrown in for no reason. And the characters do discuss that it’s awkward for them as students and also why it’s considered art.

Theology/Mythology:
Not much here besides the reference to Greek deities and such in art. That’s it really.

Personal Impression:
This is a cute show and quite funny in places. If you couldn’t already tell, it’s based off a four panel comic. It’s not as funny as Nichijou or Azumanga Daioh, but it has its own charm. And as I’m a writer, not an artist, I can only imagine that it’s more hilarious to art students (some of the jokes and references are specific to that art form). In any case, I actually learned a little about art through watching this, strangely enough. And I think I’ll stick to writing. It’s cheaper.
The art and music all fit the light hearted and comical tone of the show, soft colors and chibi-like character design with gentle or plucky music to match. Overall, this show is a nice watch for some cute comedy. Especially if you’re into art.

About inrosegalaxy

Raised on everything from Moby Dick to the Star Wars X-Wing books from a young age, it came as no surprise to anyone who knew me that I’d become a literature graduate and avid writer. But my love of a good story wasn’t restricted to the written word in my early years. Star Trek, Mystery Science Theater 3000, and badly dubbed Godzilla flicks helped shape my love of science fiction on screen as well. I wrote my first story while in the second grade. It was a horrifying tale about murdering a fairy-eating dog via a slice of pizza (in my defense, my only exposure to pizza was in the cafeteria and I swear you could legitimately kill someone with those things). I was a special snowflake. Today I write science fiction, fairy tales, Gothic epistolaries, fantasy and anything else that pops into my bizarre and twisted mind. I write new articles for my blog every Tuesday and Thursday. And if you happen to fancy Japanese animation, I also run an anime review blog, RRAR, which updates every Monday.
