After dreaming about an anime she used to watch as a child, Minoa Asagaya could not forget a particularly memorable scene. However, despite her best efforts, she cannot recall the name of the show. Due to this, Minoa asks for help from her fellow classmates at Sakaneko High School. Her conversation is overheard by Arisu Kamiigusa, the most popular and wealthy girl in class who is also a hardcore otaku. Yet even with her vast knowledge, Arisu does not recognize the show.

After discovering that there isn't an anime club at their school, Minoa and Arisu create the Anime Research Club, as they may obtain the answer to Minoa's mystery if they gather people who share the same interest. Thus, Minoa is exposed to a bizarre new world—the world of anime!

When I decided to watch Animegataris, the first thoughts in my head were if this show is actually about anime itself or something more. To be precise, Animegataris is essentially what I envision as a series about anime stories. It makes sense given the title by context and not to mention, this show seems to adapt such a formulaic story by expectations. However, the show turned out to be a bit more than what I had bargained for but in the end is quite a thrill ride.

To be honest, watching Animegataris felt like it was targeted to a specific demographic. At first, I wasn’t really ...

Animegataris is an unique anime, that was different from other anime. The first thing that you'll notice is the title, this anime has the word "anime" in it's title as well. Animegataris means "Anime Talking". From this title you can already indicate that this anime is an anime that talks about anime. This is exactly what is is as well. The story is set in an animeclub in a highschool, this club will do all kind of anime related activities like: watching anime, cosplaying, visiting conventions etc. Most of us animefans will totally love the idea of making an anime about being an animefan and ...

If I could say anything that seems to sum up my final thoughts, it is merely this—full of itself. The anime is like a stuck up piece of trash that sees itself as something greater than it is. All this show is, is one shitty attempted plot-twist after another. They even throw in a little pathetic attempt at "love?" and draw it out for a couple episodes, for no real reason. That also sums up this show to a tee—no reasoning. Everything that happens in this show is merely a convoluted fucking mess and the last two or three episodes ...
