Itâ€™s interesting to look and compare shows that are just pure comedy. There are some people who will like some shows that are just comedy while dislike other shows of the exact same genre. Itsâ€™ a bit peculiar sometimes as to why people like some over the others when they are very similar. Minami-ke definitely falls under the category of being pure comedy and Iâ€™ll bet some people dislike it and others love it, and Iâ€™ll be the people who love it hate some other pure comedy shows. Itâ€™s hard to explain why and I donâ€™t really want to go into why peoplesâ€™ opinions vary. Iâ€™ll just say that Minami-ke is a great show. It is one of the better pure comedy shows, if nothing else because Iâ€™ve heard way fewer people criticize this show compared to others. I personally love it and it will remain as one of my favorite comedy shows.
Although this can be said about any show really, the characters in this series were fantastic. They really were what made the show what it was. The situations they dealt with werenâ€™t really that bizarre. The thing that made them funny, and occasionally very weird, was because of the eccentricity of the characters and how weird they were at times. It wasnâ€™t just that they were all wild or they lived in a very strange setting or anything like that. The way the personalities clashed, especially Chiaki and Kana, was definitely the high point of the series most times. The other characters were good too but it was really these two that made the show what it was. Theyâ€™ve had wild characters like Kana before and theyâ€™ve had some rather calm and logical characters like Chiaki before in other shows, and Iâ€™m not saying Minami-ke is incredibly unique in any way, but it didnâ€™t need to be because they did such a great job with what they had.
I will say that the reason I didnâ€™t have too many posts for this series wasnâ€™t because it was bad. It was far from it, however it was one of those series that really was, for the most part, episodic. Even things that carried over to the next episodes werenâ€™t anything plot related. Thatâ€™s not a bad thing but a bit hard to write anything more then â€œThis episode was greatâ€ It was a fantastic show even though I didnâ€™t post much on it. Hopefully Iâ€™ll post a bit more on the new Minami series coming out, not that it will be better but Iâ€™ll be able to mention some comparative things.
