Tired of those pesky real life boys who clearly don't deserve your love and affection? All that unnecessary drama from dealing with human interaction, like seriously, who needs that, amirite!? Need more 2D husbando's in yo laifu?! Well girl, do I have good news for you! (Copy pasted the first lines From ZephSilvers One Room review )
Gender equality : Japan has my respect on that part like they made one room last season which were meant for boys and this season time it's for girls.
Room mate is just.........(I am completely speechless)
So your the manager of a dorm I suppose I don't quite surely know. Who
the hell cares It has 3 boys whom are completely husbando material. I mean you can never find guys like those in real life.
I don’t get why this anime has such a low rating. I mean, yes, it isn’t of FMAB quality, but exactly what do you expect from a 4 minute-per-episode anime that’s obviously geared at a female audience? Intense emotional scenes, breathtaking action sequences or perhaps, unnecessary nudity?
Room Mate is an xViewer anime (my first, I’ll be honest). I didn’t even know such a thing existed – I was only aware of this trend among fanfics and doujinshi. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled across this anime. Within the first 4 minutes, the personality of each male character has been made clear,
and if you ask me, that’s a hella difficult job. Sure, they do fit in your typical anime stereotypes (the shota, the tsundere and the loner), but then again – this anime doesn’t have the luxury of delving into deep character developments because of its severe time constraints.
Here, you are the manager of the inn/lodge where these guys stay (they’re roommates, duh) and you get to witness their day to day lives first hand. The ED was generic, but I’ll admit – the animation was far better than I expected. I found the interactions and the camera movements particularly interesting. The most impressive thing, of course, was how much the animators were able to convey so much in every 4 minute episode.
While not definitely a masterpiece, if you’re looking for a breather in between watching an intense anime, or are just in the mood for something different, I’d definitely recommend this sweet and cute anime. After all, what’s 20 minutes of your life, right? Give it a try!
PS. I was gonna give it a 7, but after seeing so many guys (and I do mean, boys) downvoting this series for not pandering to THEIR likes, I upped my vote to 9. It might not help its overall score, but that’s my way of rebelling against these people and their unfair scores.
First person should stay in visual novels and games, where the first person perspective is capable of giving "personal depth" to your choices while keeping the main character ambiguous in appearance to keep the viewer as connected as possible to said character. With non-interactive media it just comes off as lazy and forced by simply removing a character and everything associated with them. Especially when inexplicable and unexplained events happen that have no context or real confirmation of whats happening.
In the end there's nothing here except average sound and art, when it is actually present.
Any rating over a 5, if you absolutely adore it, is
just blinded by bias to the point that they ignore the obvious faults.
Simply having an actual main character instead of the gimmick this tries to pull would have made it infinitely better. Instead, it's just a missing character with no dialogue and a thinly veiled forced narrative.
This isn't meta in any way. It's just bait for the sake of bait, with no sustenance or meaning.
