One day after school, Asahi Kuromine stumbles upon the truth that Youko Shiragami, the girl he has a crush on, is actually a vampire. According to her father's rules, Youko must now quit school in order to keep her family safe. However, Asahi does not want her to go and promises that he will keep her true nature secret. Unfortunately, this turns out to be easier said than done, as Asahi is a man who is easy to read and is unable to keep any secrets to himself.

And this is the only the beginning of his troubles—more supernatural beings enter his life, and he is forced to protect all of their identities or face the consequences. Jitsu wa Watashi wa follows Asahi as he deals with his new friends and the unique challenges they bring, struggles to keep his mouth shut, and desperately tries to win Youko's heart in the process.

It seems there may be a new trend in anime in recent years. The concept of monster girls who lives in the human world is becoming more and more of a trend. Rosario + Vampire, Kore wa Zombie Desu ka?, Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou, and even to an extent, To Love Ru Darkness display traits where its main character cast composes of non-human female characters. So where does that put Jitsu wa Watashi wa? Nowhere too different really. To sum it up easily, this is a series about a guy who discovers that there are non-human beings living in his world. And one of read more

If I were to choose whether I liked it or not, I'd say I liked it. The plot is decent, the characters are funny, and the anime is without flaw... OK, it isn't flawless. But it does have a certain charm to it, and I never even had the thought of dropping it. It was really entertaining. But the ending left room for improvement, and the characters' sub-par performance, in terms of uniqueness, quality and improvisation, could have been avoidable. If it gets a sequel, I'd watch it, though.

Story: 7/10
The plot takes a very rough road to its destination. Once you're in a few read more

TL;DR: pacing is awful, characters are generic and removable, + for sound and animation, poor conclusion.

I felt like I've been betrayed after finishing this show. Yeah the general premise of it isn't by any means original, but given the circumstances of the show, it could have been a decent rom/com. Ironic enough the score I'm giving it is classified as "decent." The show has a promising first few episodes, filled with comedy more than anything else.

Really, there isn't too much to say about this adaptation because it lacked a lot of development in every aspect. The story seemed to follow the usual trend of read more

How can a romantic school comedy work if the main protagonist is someone who can't lie and the female protagonist is a very dense person? Jitsu wa Watashi wa, or "Actually, I am...", is a romantic school anime which incorporates supernatural elements as well as comedic ones to enhance the narrative.

As mentioned earlier, the story is simple and centers around Kuromine Asahi, the "leaky basket", and Shiragami Youko, who happens to be a "dense" vampire. Having a person who can't keep secrets can only lead to problems. The anime utilizes these situations to its advantage to present amusing situations and develop their relationship. However, the read more
