Health and Phys Ed for 30 Year Olds #01-04 — Title Too Long!

April 6th, 2011


Too educational for broadcast TV!

I didn’t bother to include this in my preview writeup since it’s only ten minutes and looks like it’s made in Flash. But there’s literally nothing else that airs on Wednesdays, so I figured I’d give it a look anyway. If you’re curious about the numbering, the show is split into multiple segments, each with their own title card.


Actually, this turned out surprisingly funny, although at least 25% of that was the censoring, especially when Bishie God whipped out a whiteboard. Apparently this is a helpful guide on how to properly fondle breasts. I knew I’ve been doing something wrong. The two and a half minute ‘episodes’ also helped a lot in keeping it bitesized too. It didn’t stick to any one thing for long enough to be annoying and the whole thing was finished around the time I normally get antsy and start clockwatching. It even made me chuckle a few times. High praise indeed.

Regardless, its animation still looks like crap. Hell, voices aren’t even always synced right. The lead (I didn’t even catch his name) is also of the SHOUT EVERYTHING variety, relying on the usual Japanese comedy trope that if you say something unusual, the best punchline is to repeat the last word as loudly as possible. "I’ve replaced your mouse with breasts." "BREASTS!?" "You must fondle them or they will explode." "EXPLODE!?" Why couldn’t Japan have just go with the canned laugh track? At least they’d be up to 70s sitcom standards then.

In a lot of ways, this is what I really hope Abnormal Phys coming up will be (or would have been if the OVA is an accurate indication), a wacky over-the-top sexual comedy taught by a deviant god instead of an endless parade of people masturbating. It’s definitely no B Cup or even OniiZen in terms of production, character strength, or humor, but it’s not that bad. Plus, it’s short and almost as importantly, there’s absolutely nothing else even airing on Wednesdays at all. Like nature and teacup poodles, I abhor vacuums. That’s reason enough to give it another week to see if it can keep it up.

    May I ask what’s the japanese title for this? Because I sure as hell won’t find the torrent for this by inserting “Health and Physical Education for 30 Year Olds” now, can I?
