Watching and appreciating Haré+Guu involves taking a walk on the weird side. Its comedic weirdness works more often than not, however, and may grow on you.
The show is just overall great. The only problem I’ve really noticed is the city plots, because they aren’t as funny as the jungle plots (especially in FINAL). It’s still a very colorful, cute, and hilarious series that I would recommend.
Close to animated perfection for me, I quite simply adore Halé and Guu. It’s stupid, it’s silly and it’s fun. Victims of my recommendations have also agreed with this one, sharing the jokes and numerous screenshots with anyone who would look or listen. As Guu grows on you like Chouji’s chest hair and makes you laugh like a retarded Waji, I’m surprised there are not more people championing the series’ universal appeal.
It’s whimsical, goofy, creative, and fun; essentially, it’s everything you want in a comedic anime.
My Anime List
This is a very good series, and is extremely funny, with a very dry and sharp sense of humour similar to that found in Gintama.
A lot of the humor is physical slapstick material, usually overanimated to the point of becoming psychotically violent (though in a VERY cartoonish form) and various oddball emotes. It also has a lot of more spoken comedy that ranges from plain silly to subtle to drier than this review. The storyline itself isn’t bad, but entirely unnecessary. It’s primarily in episodic format, so you can jump in at any time. Honestly, the only reason this review is so dull is that I haven’t slept in three days and I haven’t seen the show in months, but I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an interesting comedy.
Funny, lough-out-loud, crazy if not impossible ideas around every corner and in the center the almighty Guu like the eye of a hurricane. If you don’t enjoy this you’ve got no humor.
