Sixth grader Sana Kurata has a perfect life. Her mother is a (fairly) successful author, she has a young man employed to keep her happy and safe, and best of all, she is the star of the children’s television show Kodomo no Omocha. There’s just one thing bothering her, and that’s Akito Hayama. Akito is a classmate of Sana’s, and ever since he’s started acting out in class, the rest of the boys have followed his example. Every day, the girls and the teacher wage a battle to keep the class under control and to get some actual learning done. That rotten Akito… Sana won’t stand for this! The hyperactive Sana decides to dig deeper and find out what makes Akito tick, so class can go back to normal and the teacher can stop spending every day crying instead of teaching. But the more she learns about him, the more she realizes that there might be more to Akito than meets the eye. – My Anime List

Kurata Anime Reviews
This is one of this anime that goes break my scale beyond a 10 along with Cowboy Bebop, FMA 2003, Haikyuu Season Two and Wolf Children
Overall, its good but the graphics are a bit blurry. The storyline is unique and nice.(i like nice storyline hohoho.) If you are looking for animes similar to Gakuen Alice, this is definitely for you!
The Cajun Samurai
This is a high-energy series that gives the viewer plenty of smiles and light-hearted laughter in the midst of numerous of well-developed plot arcs. There are some substantial issues that are approached in a manner that is playful, yet packs a punch. A must see for any anime fan.
Kodocha stands on top of the shoujo genre, and it has been standing there for more than ten years by now. The sheer amount of creativity fully make up for the huge length of this series. Some of the jokes were utterly brilliant, the wide ensemble of facial expressions has been just priceless, and the cast of characters is just wonderful. Akitaro Daichi seriously is one of the best comedy directors out there. Speaking of which, what has he been doing for the past few years? It’s about time he came with another series, isn’t it?
My Anime List
This was the show that led me into the world of otaku. Good or bad, I’m not sure. I’ve watched a lot more anime since then, but no other series or movie can quite compare with Kodocha. Some have come very close, but they barely missed the mark that Kodocha set. This show will always be number one in my book.
Once again, I face the Maison Ikkoku dilemma when it comes to giving a final impression of Kodocha. Just like MI, Kodocha isn’t a perfect series in regards to its execution – it has its high points and low points and I can definitely think of a variety of improvements that would improve the overall effectiveness of the show. There are also aspects which won’t appeal to everyone – the comedy may be a bit too frenetic for some, others may have a hard time relating with the emotional drama of children. However, the most important thing is that the overall impression that Kodacha left me with is extremely positive, and I am completely satisfied with the experience of following these characters from the beginning to end. It’s a show that always left me in high spirits, and even now I think I could easily load up the first episode and blast through the entire series again without tiring of it. Indeed, I find myself dropping back into the show for an episode occasionally, just to have some more fun with the cast.
The quality of Komocha is up and down as much as the emotions of a menopausal woman, and this heavily affects the overall score. With moments of unrequited love, the drama and relationships felt like they could do no wrong. On the flip side, the dreadful arcs break the fast-paced momentum and the show becomes dreadfully boring. A moment of pure brilliance suffers at the hands of one made from overemotional cack, as back to back episodes flip flop between brash comedy and heartfelt emotion. Putting its flaws aside, the series has stood the test of time very well and will appeal to a wide range of fans. Although child-like comedy has subsequently blossomed in shows like Minami-ke and Ichigo Mashimaro, Kodomo no Omocha deserves a salute for being the first and ultimately the driving inspiration for its successors.
I think this show is, although totally weird, really good. If you ever get a chance to watch it, do.
