At first blush, Ao-chan Can’t Study! looks like a raunchy, short-form romcom anime about sex, relationships and the various mishaps of the titular Ao-chan’s dating life — and in many hilarious ways, that’s exactly what the anime is. Just check out the series’ summary:
Ao Horie wants to focus on school instead of pursuing romance, but there’s just one problem: Kijima, her handsome classmate, just confessed his love to her! And to make matters worse, she can’t stop thinking dirty thoughts about him!
Look. We get it. That summary doesn’t scream “wholesome” or “adorable” or “pure.” But would you believe us if we said that Ao-chan Can’t Study! is actually a pretty dang wholesome anime if you look beneath the surface?
