Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto

If you enjoy a slice of life story where the main protagonist looks suspiciously like Kyoya from Ouran host club, then this is the anime for you. Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto is only a 12 episode anime, but those 12 episodes are absolute perfection. The plot follows a boy called Sakamoto, who is the heartthrob for both girls and boys. He is the pure essence of COOL, and no matter what the situation Sakamoto fixes it in such a dramatic way that people only see it as brilliance. Most people just peg his brilliance as a ‘secret skill’. Every episode has a different problem, but as always Sakamoto saves the day through the weirdest of methods, be it through holding an umbrella elegantly despite it being turned inside out. He takes being the main character to a new level, so imagine yourself doing an activity to the best of your ability and over dramatizing it, that is a Sakamoto move.  He is smart, well dressed, serious and still people fawn over him. Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto is one of the best anime i have seen, it is so good that i catch myself humming his main theme tune and it makes me giggle all the time. One of the best things about this show is that Sakamoto does not fall in love with any characters, nor does he really have any sort of affection. It’s very refreshing to see. If this does not motivate you, then the opening song will get you hooked. Im not kidding, this anime is hilarious, and imaging he might be Kyoya from Ouran Host Club, only makes the whole thing more hilarious.

Sakamoto, Cool, Coolest, serious, perfect, he is the best student a teacher could ask for, and not only this but he is good looking as well. Sakamoto is at first a boy who is oblivious to many peoples feelings, but once he catches on that a person is sad he will try his best to fix their unhappiness. Sakamoto has many methods to get around, for instance in one episode he was kicking a stone, and when you thought it was over he defied gravity and kicked the stone along a steep river bank.

Yoshinobu Kubota, quiet, cute, low self esteem, Kubota is Sakamotos best friend, which came about from him being bullied. Kubota is a nice side character, he unlike many of the students does not see Sakamoto in a love way but a friendship way. 

Bearer of bad news, there are only 12 episodes and for me the ending wasn’t as satisfying but it did make me smile. Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto is a must see, you will be loosing out if you don’t watch it. The main thing about this anime, is it tries to make you laugh by over exaggerating every situation, and i say they do a great job.
