Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto is predominantly a satirical comedy anime, born from the extension of a one-off gag. This makes it very hit-and-miss in the execution of its gags, since each gag is derivative of the main premise. As such, it struggles to find its voice until it’s about 3/4 through. While you do get to know the characters a bit, ultimately, they are still caricatures. There are some really good moments, which make the misses less memorable. That’s not to say we wish it was a more serious anime – judging Sakamoto against other satire-based comedy anime, it still comes out a little weaker than average.
