Having just moved into a new apartment building, Yui Hanasaka makes a customary visit to greet her neighbor. When she learns that he is an upperclassman at the university she aspires to attend, she asks for his help to pass her entrance exams. Meanwhile, Natsuki Momohara decides to visit her older brother, who lives alone in an apartment in Tokyo. Elsewhere, aspiring singer Moka Aoshima reunites with her childhood friend, who is a hopeful novelist.

Three stories, although seemingly unrelated, contain the same essence: strings of fate will bind together those who share the same destiny, and one needs to look no further than a single apartment room.

Some members of the anime community always seem to make a point to show public outrage when random seasonal show-x doesn't meet some arbitrary standard of 'maturity' or 'artistic integrity,' all in some weird attempt to distance themselves from "those kinds of anime fans." When doing this it's always easier to go after the low hanging fruit, shorts like these which most people don't care about or don't have high expectations of. This review of One Room is written with the expectation that nobody else on this site will defend it.

The fact that this is a POV anime seems to be enough to send ...

Mixed Feelings
There are slight spoilers in this review, but not anything too specific, read at your own discretion.

I will be reviewing this by each arc and then overall.

Arc 1 // New neighbor, busty underclassman - 6/10
This arc is pretty easy-going and has a story. Overall average, but very nice art and happy ending.

Arc 2 // Energetic, cheerful, and petite sister - 1/10
I am not a big fan of sister complex's much less petite figures. Not to mention the story is pretty lame and the ending is just ?? like ?? wasted 16 minutes of screentime for what?? Sister stuff, just not my cup of ...

If I were to describe, in detail, every moment in which I was saddened, revolted, or infuriated by what I witnessed, I’m afraid that it will be the death of me.

For you see, One Room is unparalleled in undermining any rational expectation from its audience; few anime series have disappointed as consistently and as vigorously as One Room. I’ve never seen a show blatantly resist originality, creativity, and artistic integrity quite like One Room. At first glance, One Room appears to be yet another cash cow representative of the harem genre, a product engineered from the assembly line to satisfy the masses. On further examination, ...
