For me, BMW epitomizes what I thought my life was going to be like in high school and college.

Cory, Shawn, Eric, and Topanga were going to be my best friends. Feeny was my ideal teacher. It was my favorite show as a kid, and, honestly, I still list it as one of my favorite shows as an adult.
It was perfect in its cheesy, 90s-esque morality tales and innocent sense of humor. There are so many episodes that I love and still reference to this day, so how did I narrow it down to just five?

It came down to this: And this is what I found in chronological order: Season 1, Episode 4: Plus, this was back in the days of Weird Topanga. The one where she draws on her face with lipstick. Shawn mentions a sister, Stacy, in this episode.
I know we never meet Stacy, but is she ever even mentioned again? Aka one of my all time favorite Disney Channel original movies.

Brown and Joey the Rat Mr. Blue are two of my favorite characters from BMW.
And nothing is better than dumb Eric. Seriously, his character went from cool big brother to total idiot in just a couple seasons. And I love it.
So when my nerdy male pal recommended it, I had to stop everything I was doing to watch it immediately. This was not because Kashimashi is shallow and trivial work and I had schoolwork piling up the entire time watching it consumed.

It was because of the annoying and and outright insulting nature of it. This requires, however, that the characters are just plain dull and generic. In the case of Kashimashi they are not, they are way out on the negative scale, disturbing and annoying or she is. Kashimashi takes all the imaginable half-assedness of handling such themes to a new level, treating the main character literally like an object for the first half.

Both she does it herself, and all the males close to him suddenly turn into voyeurists and sex-maniacs. And she's supposed to be a normal girl here, the original Hazumu's Y chromosome just got misplaced with an X during his body's reconstruction with the alien technology. Give me a break! In works like Happiness! Here, nothing is explained.
Kashimashi is obviously oriented primarily for males with a fetish for a thought of themselves as lesbians as a fantasy it's completely different thing from reality, after all lesbian porn is highly popular among menor just extra kicks from the knowledge that a hot female used to be a guy. That means, as you'd guess, the fanservice is inevitable.
We can't just have Hazumu behave like any normal person in a bit strange new situations, we must have her be an complete idiot without any common sense.
Or how many of you guys think if you suddenly were dressed in a skirt you would reflexively use it as a fan and having to have someone else to tell you that's not a good idea? Yep, this is what Kashimashi is largely about.
The last thing you'll remember about Kashimashi will be the episodes consisting of nothing but fanservice comedy, and how they ruined all the potential. The last few episodes were like I would have wanted and expected the whole show to be like - serious, realistic drama.
It has been a few years since I watched Kashimashi. And time has not goldened memories.
I viewed it in the most positive light maybe two weeks after watching, when I compared it to other pure-fanservicey series and thought it stilll had some desperate trying in this sense, I think of Kashimashi much the same way as of Code Geass R2. I still have very mixed feelings and don't know whether it should get 1 for completely ruining the good premise or for having that good premise and a few relatively good episodes toward the end that make up for those preceding them.
