Sexy Commando is about one of the most strangest school boy... or well boy in general.
This show has more plain uniforms but they certainly make up for that with wacky and strange characters. Boys wear a plain all black uniform and a white shirt under their jacket. Girls wear a typical sailor suit done in blue. Again nothing special but the characters sure will stand out.
Overall: I'll pass on this one.
With Ping Pong Club in mind when first looking at Sexy Commando, I went into this expecting the worst. Especially after a Scamp giggle when he kindly chose this anime for me to view for my Not so Secret Santa Project. Aside from his silly choice in his favourite anime ever, I'd say our tastes are pretty similar. Especially since he can't overly stomach sloppy shoujo titles.
Masaru Hananakajima is quite possibly one of the strangest school boys you'll ever see. After enrolling in a new school he immediately takes on all the martial arts clubs and somehow beats them all. He is not liked because of this and possibly might be why he decided to leave for 3 months for some "exploring time". Whatever that honestly means... During this time he comes across a book that changes his life completely. The book is called the "Sexy Commando Guide Book" and thus this story begins with the new Sexy Commando Martial Art Club where you confuse your enemy with whatever!
The OP is to say at the very least quite bizarre with the imagery. The song fits it well but I'm not overly fond of it. It does however grow on you because you will hear it a lot since the episodes are 10 minutes. The random saying blurbs at the end of each episode are well... strange to say the least. Most are quite funny though. The actual ED is most amusing for some reason. It feels like I'm sitting in a crowd that is just as confused as I am with what we have just seen. Very triumphant sounding and it is so awesome it doesn't need any animation to go with it. You just get a wall of text and some hilarious singing. The animation in general is crude and poorly done but it works with this anime. If anything it adds to some of the humour.
You won't and can't understand all the strange characters in this show. You just have to accept them in all their glorious weirdness and roll with it. There will be a lot of moments where you will laugh and not quite know why. You'll wonder what just happened most of the time as well. Moe Moe is pretty much the only girl in the series and she is probably my second favourite character. She shares a lot of quirks that Masaru has so they bounce off of each other quite nicely. Oddly enough there was no romance between the two but then again, I think Masaru is too crazy to even consider something like love for a woman.
Oddly my favourite character is a very minor character. Mr. Training Pants AKA random teacher that shows up somewhere in the middle of the series. I can't explain why he was so funny to me but he just was. Maybe it's the lips? Maybe it's his glasses? It's probably one of those things that you just gotta see for yourself.
Another character worth mentioning is the principal. He is probably weirder than most of the students and is definitely more interesting. The one thing I love about him that the show makes a point of letting us know at every moment is just how much he loves seaweed. It is what is on the school clock, he has a garden of it, and he will shout it randomly over the school's PA system. That is just awesome!
The Sexy Commando fighting style brings us some amazing techniques. But as funny as seeing them is, the names for these techniques are something else. Melancholy of Elise is a zipper move of sorts that no one knows what it really means. SexSo, Body Replacement Method Technique, Balls Disappearance, and Moment of Shame are all oddball names that just make you go "huh?". Since the viewer is either laughing or confused the Sexy Commando fighting style clearly works! One can only dream to one day be a sexymate!
Here's some lessons!
Strange comedies like Sexy Commando are totally best done in 10 minute episodes or less. Any longer than that and they will loose their appeal. Gag Manga Biyori is another great example of this kind of humour.

Maybe you'll laugh till you poop!
From the anime Sexy Commando, Masaru Hananakajima is a quirky new transfer student to Wakame High, he left for 3 months right after he joined and defeated all members of all martial arts clubs in the school. Upon returning he created the Sexy Commando Club based on the "Sexy Commando Guide Book" he found while he was gone on his 3 month "vacation".
Why I like him: He's completely awesome crazy. His crazy logic just works. Oddly enough I like those weird rings he wears on his shoulders that he beat up some aliens in order to keep. His hair stands up on end with them on which is highly amusing to me. I really like the strange names he gives out to his friends and foes.
Why I hate him: How can I hate a man who loves mustaches?!
Overall: If you like over the top weird humour seriously check this out. You will wonder why you keep watching it but it just sucks you in. The 10 minute episodes help getting through it a lot too because it does get a little dry towards the end.
