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 read more

It makes sense that if anime characters in an anime start talking about anime in their anime club then something strange has to happen on a metaphysical level within their own story. Animegataris is a school-club comedy anime that sets itself up on a self-aware journey that (kind of) explores why anime otaku appreciate anime so much. And the best way to do that is through its own medium (of course).

There is a lot of anime in this anime. They talk about anime, they make an anime, they become an 'anime.' if this anime is going to be known for anything as this season peters read more

Wow! All it takes to get people to lose their minds over an anime is a couple of Re:Zero references and an idiotic “parody” story. Parody doesn’t equal a lack of effort. I don’t think the creators of Animegataris understood this when making it.

No matter how many times you call this “parody” it doesn’t get any closer to being good.
But what do I know? A stupid and cliche story in an anime? It must be comedy gold!

Other than simply using cliches at every chance it gets, the show in no way comments on cliches in anime.

Definitivamente una maravillosa serie, me esperaba algo como shirobako la verdad, pero fue una gran sorpresa esta serie, imposible no sentirse identificado con alguno de los personajes, es el comienzo de todo, cuando empiezas a ver anime, no solo te diviertes si no que haces nuevas amistades, el anime une a las personas y esta serie es la prueba de ello.

Todas las referencias y parodias solo hacian mas divertida la serie, lo unico es que no se que se fumaron en los ultimos 2 capitulos XD, aparte de eso todo fue maravilloso.

Pero bueno cada quien tiene una opinion diferente ( como mostraron en la serie) read more
