Usually, I don't watch shoujo anime or anything that's near close to romance. However, Ask Dr. Rin! was quite enjoyable. Although Ask Dr. Rin! is meant for children to a certain extent, this anime's story is too complex for a child. With a story that revolves around a girl named Meirin Kanzaki who secretly runs a website where she does Feng Shui to 'make the wishes of a maiden come true.' As the story progresses, Meirin gains more allies and her love interest who hates anything occult joins in on saving the Earth from the Dark Priestess. The story was very slow at first
and the art isn't the greatest. In fact, it screams "I was made in the early 2000's." The soundtrack sounds forgetful but after watching an episode, I often times find myself humming a tune or two from the show. The character design is very generic, however I found myself wanting to cosplay as certain characters after I saw the outfits of the Four Gods, Meirin and even Rin Rin. Despite my critiques, I enjoyed the show the entire time while watching. My final verdict is that this show is not for everyone. If you love Sailor Moon and Fushigi Yuugi, then you'll love this illegitimate child known as Ask Dr. Rin! If you hate love triangles and waiting for just ONE kiss, don't look at this show. And to conclude, Tokiwa X Meirin is a BETTER ship than Meirin X Asuka.
