Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun Blu-ray
About Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun Blu-ray
Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun collection contains episodes 1-12 of the anime directed by Mitsue Yamazaki.
You know how the story goes: girl crushes on guy, girl confesses feelings to guy, guy mistakes confession for a job application.
Okay, maybe that's not how it usually goes, but that's what happens when Chiyo Sakura finally gets up the nerve to tell her classroom crush Nozaki how she feels. Since she doesn't know that he's secretly a manga artist who publishes under a female pen name, and he doesn't know that she doesn't know, he misunderstands and offers her a chance to work as his assistant instead of a date!
But while it's not flowers and dancing, it is a chance to get closer to him, so Chiyo gamely accepts. And when Nozaki realizes how useful Chiyo can be in figuring out what girls find romantic, he'll be spending even more time with her "researching" while remaining completely clueless. Could Chiyo's romantic frustration possibly get any more drawn out of proportion? The answer will be profusely illustrated in Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun!

Ratings & Reviews
Hilarious as Hell
by Ivan -
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this series. The first episode was fun, but I wasn’t really hooked until the second episode and the supporting characters began to be introduced. The characters are all fun to watch and the humor had me actually laughing aloud every episode
It has awesome characters and a load of ridiculous content that will split sides over and over again.
A charming, witty series.
by Andrew D
Gorgeous production value, an excellent dub by Sentai, and a series filled with wit, humor and satire. Also Chiyo is adorable. What's not to like?
Great Show, Average BD Release

First off, the packaging. It's a pretty flimsy-feeling, which I'm sad to say is par for the course when it comes to Sentai's releases. The cover is colorful, with a nice glossy sheen, but is totally blank on the reverse side. No inserts or booklets are included, which is a bummer. I understand that the special edition comes with that stuff, but even the standard edition should have an insert with a chapter list or something in my opinion.
The discs themselves have printed labels on them, which are colorful and feature the characters. A very nice touch, which Sentai is always good about including.
Now, the extras. The Nozaki-kun shorts are included, which is nice, but other than that there aren't really any to speak of. No commentary, TV interviews/promos, or anything like that, unfortunately. This is something that I wish Sentai would improve in the future, since some of their releases do have a lot of stuff to watch- the K-On Movie, for example.
Laugh out loud funny

This is a great show. A bit silly, but that's OK. Fun characters, (semi) believable situations, and very entertaining. Buy, watch, enjoy!
High School friends producing a girls romance comic is hilarious!
This anime is just full of innocent humor, as the series has lots of misunderstandings, romantic experiments, bad references, and faulty observations applied towards a girls romance comic.
What do girls find romantic VS what guys 'think' girls find romantic is hilarious indeed. But there's also guys playing 'date sim' games for research, preparations for club dating activities, Chiyo panic attack when college girl borrows ink from Nozaki-Kun, or setting up Wakamatsu the basketball player with Seo the oblivious on a movie date for material. Of course, you have the Hori the drama club president with Kashima the 'prince of the school' in a wacky love/hate relationship that fringes on the bizarre. And finally, does Chiyo actually tell Nozaki her true feelings for him by episode 12?
Ah, but you also get a bonus 6-part mini episode series where the group goes to the beach for additional laughs. Blu-ray is in 1080p 16:9 HD with both English and Japanese 2.0 TrueHD audio.
