It has it moments.
27 March 2019 | by MiZta425See all my reviews

The worst thing about this anime is that it doesn't follow the story of the manga. If you read the manga, and then watch this show, your going to notice how rushed and all over the place this anime is. The only episode that follows the plot line of the manga is the first episode. Every other episode after that takes plot lines from manga chapters dozens of issues away from one another and slaps them together in an uneven mess.

Its as if this anime was made specifically so that people who have never read the manga are caught up with the relationship between the characters, but even than it doesn't do that as the pacing in each episode seems rushed and certain character chemistry is incredibly forced. There's even a main character introduced in the last 2 episodes who was never mentioned or seen in the manga and is only there to serve as the big bad guy the main character has to defeat.

I do however love that each character in the show is given a decent amount of airtime since in the manga they were in a few panels than gone for the rest of the comic, but my god the side-character Minoru is a god awful character in this show and is probably the worst character in any anime i have seen thus far. His only personality trait is that he is attracted to under-aged girls. Thats it. they joke around with this a couple of times throughout the anime but its gets cringy really fast.

Overall, the shows alright, if they continue with this anime, I hope they do a better job with following the plot of the Manga. It's not the worst romcom out there and this show does have its funny moments.
