Okamisan and her Seven Companions

I recently sat down and watched the English dub version of Okamisan and her Seven Companions on Netflix.

A romance comedy parodying fairy tales such as Little Red Riding Hood, The Ant and the Grasshopper etc. Ryōko Ōkami (the eponymous Ōkami-san) is a tomboyish high school girl. She is a member of a “trading” club known as the Otogi High School Bank. She and the other members of the club (such as her partner, Akai Ringo) fix the problems presented by students (or “clients”), of any sort, by any means, in exchange for the students’ helping them out later when others may need help.

The first thing I noticed is the narrator who regularly makes sarcastic and potentially offensive remarks about the characters which injects a odd humor into the show.

Jedite’s final thoughts: while Okamisan and her Seven Companions was not really my cup of tea, it’s a decent show and worth watching a few episodes to see if you like it.
