    People Who Don’t Want to get Addicted

    Let’s face it: while certain mega anime series are fun to watch and follow its characters’ journey, it may feel troublesome to start following another long series of anime which requires one to immerse oneself in each episode. Since this anime is short and does not have a strong storyline, it is an anime series suitable for the lazy days when you just want to watch something to get distracted. You will not feel the pressure of having to catch up on every episode either, as each episode hardly connects with the others. Thus, it does not matter much if you miss a couple of episodes.

    Oshiete! Galko-chan is a fun anime to watch when you have a few minutes to waste! Not to mention that it is pretty educational too. Hence, you can relax while learning some interesting facts.
