Yuuki Akamatsu lives a normal high school life... that is until his cousin, Ayaka Nikaidou, convinces him to join the Journalism Club as a life consultant! His new job is to manage the advice column for the school's weekly newspaper to help him become more social. Soon, Yuuki is joined by three girls: the smart and shy Rino Endou, the athletic and outgoing Ikumi Suzuki, and the cultured and sweet Fumi Kujou. Together, they solve the personal problems of those who anonymously ask for advice.

Although each of the new life consultants has their own unique perspective, they are able to reach solutions together by holding debates and social experiments throughout the week. However, as time goes on, the four slowly come to realize that they have not only been guiding other students through their troubles, but also working through problems of their own as well.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]


Jinsei adapts the first 5 novels of Ougyo Kawashigi's light novel series of the same title.

I don't know exactly how I feel about this series. I like it, but then again, there are some things I don't.
I'll just have to tell you something important before you watch this show;
It is not a harem.
Yes, the main character, Akamatsu, does hang around several girls at all times. But, there's only one girl in which the show romantically develops. This is a good thing, and although it's not a huge change, it feels different from the norm when it comes to romantic comedies involving several girls.

I'll make this a quick first impression, for people who are curious. I'll just read more

Was boring here and there, but I suppose that varies among people.
The characters were adorable, the ecchi was well welcomed.
I hate harem and this for a change isn't harem, a very unique ending.
Typically in these comedies and especially ecchis, a bunch of girls hang around one loser boy and end up all falling for him, and he can't choose between them all.
this guy was a loser, and nothing special as well. 'Cept for the fact that he can actually make a decision after all. and the rest of the girls actually supported them, i found that very cute. the ending was enjoyable of course, however read more

"Everyone knows that handles are the weak point of any closet"

The quote above properly depicts the deepest moments of the slightly glorious anime that is Jinsei.

Jinsei, directed by Keiichirou Kawaguchi (Hayate no Gotoku/SKET Dance), immediately throws its audience into the world of Yuuki Akamatsu, the newest member of the Kyuumon High School Second Newspaper Club (One newspaper club was just not enough). Akamatsu was placed in charge of the club's "Life advice" column and was assigned three girls with extremely differentiating social standpoints to help address the concerns of Kyuumon students looking for help of some sort.

That's it. There really isn't much more story to read more

Hold up before you think this is a troll hear me out.
So I watched this when it was ongoing and since than it has been majorly update but some backstory on this series was that it was a test series with all new voice actors. These new voice actors have never done an anime before and were not bad at all, but the focus was on them learning not the anime itself.
Two enormous problems that cannot be overlooked in the slightest
1. NO constancy with episodes. I watched this while it was ongoing and on I think the summer 2014 list and it finished I believe read more
