This is an anime only review. I haven't read the manga. Though, I wished I done the review with the show fresh on my mind when I was on an Amazon Prime one month binging marathon in the summer of 2020. To my surprise, I didn't leave a lot of comments on the discussion thread which I used as my notes. Mistakes will be made. I tried to write a longer review. For this type of show with 10 episodes, there are not a lot to talk about.
To get on the review, the show has no plot or major obstacle/conflict for our characters to overcome or achieve as I remember. With most romance shows, the goal for most is to establish a couple. With My Girlfriend is Shobitch, they already become girlfriend and boyfriend at the beginning. What is their goal? For Haruka, he wants to be cool in the later half of the show. For the second person in the relationship, Akiho Kosaka, has a flaw. She wants to be the best girlfriend for Haruka, but she tends to over do things or jump to sexual things or misunderstandings that deals with sexual things. This show has a lot of dirty minded characters. Akiho is not a dirty minded girl. It's just that she approaches it in a straight forward manner. However, it seems to contradict Akiho's character or my memory is wrong as Akiho displays a wild imagination. When a young male classmate joins their group and does things with Haruka, she has a vivid imagination of them doing yaoi things.
That is where the bulk of the humor comes from: naughty, sexual jokes, misunderstandings, and Haruka being the straight man. As for fan service and ecchi comment, there are a plethora of panty shots, gainax bounce, and camera zooming on the chest, leg, and panty areas. The minor characters do not evolve or help our main characters. They exist for the humor with their quirks or misunderstandings.
Overall, if you're an older fan who likes ecchi, I will definitely recommend it to you. For anyone casual or new to anime, I would not recommend the anime as it has not much story or character content. It's a really short series with not much substance other than dirty humor.
Old Man Dream: 26 episodes, actually. Took a week for me to finish. Actually got through the first half quick last weekend. Slowed a bit over this week because things in real life got a bit hectic.

Old Man Dream: On episode 2. One question to ask: why the hell was Midori's real body naked when Seiji and Midori-Hand were at her house?

Old Man Dream: For context in that episode, Seiji decided to go to Midori's house to try figuring out why Midori-Hand is on his right hand and sees the real one is in a coma. Assuming Midori-Hand would somehow return to her real body if she made physical contact with...

Old Man Dream: it, the two are shocked to see that for whatever reason, Midori's original body was kept in the nude by her family.
