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!

This anime truly surprised me in a way I never imagined it could.

An anime about an anime club that references various anime and, on top of that, critiques anime productions in general? This anime is a gem!!

It was very interesting to watch what seemed to be just an anime about students talking about anime turn into well-crafted critiques of the entire artistic production scene that anime propose. The challenges of producing an anime, the horrendous working conditions that animators face, often staying up all night to deliver something well-done, which in the end gets canceled after the first episode because it's heavily criticized for being ...

Mixed Feelings
Animegataris is a story about anime in the literal sense of the word, it is an interesting take in how a comunity or a club of anime fans can behave and conduct themselves in a way that can let them share the things they enjoy the most and although it isn't the best try at the take of anime in a show it is still deserving of being watched.

The story centers around a girl called Asagaya, Minoa who becomes an anime rookie and makes an anime club along with Kamiigusa Arisu, Kouenji Miko, Mushasisakai Kai and Aoyama Erika. They face the difficulties of having a ...

This Anime was great at first. Cool characters, fun references, great music.
It was just a bunch of Otakus doing Otaku stuff.

Then we get into the whole "anime is becoming real in the real world" episodes. Did they run out of ideas so they changed the series completely?

They also made the student council so unlikeable it made the story even more annoying...

I have mixed feelings at this point...
Regarding the voice acting, you could tell most of them tried their best.
