With the massive amount of shallow school-based CGDCT that exist you'd be forgiven for thinking that Slow Start is another one of those. While there are many shows that try to take a simple gimmick and turn it into a CGDCT show, that isn't the case here. It may look like it, after all the fact that one character is a year behind seems like a nice basis for a show so that it can set itself apart that little bit before going back to the old tropes.

Except it's not a gimmick and it's not treading the same ground. Rather it's going farther than most read more

Funnily enough considering the title of this anime, Slow Start went from an entertaining but mostly just good watch to one of my favorite series of this winter 2018 season as it progressed.

This story is focused on Hana, a shy girl who easily gets worried that she is a year behind the rest after not being able to do the exams for high school. That affected her and she couldn't handle thinking about what everyone else would think of her, so she ended up leaving her house and went to live in the apartment of her cousin Shion to start a fresh life where read more

Slow start is one of the most disappointing anime I have seen in the "Cute girls doing cute things" genre and you will see why.

When I started watching slow start I was ready for another relaxing cute anime with cute characters but this was just not like that, I'm all for trying new stuff but that doesn't mean that when it fails then them trying will make it better than it really is.

Most of the characters were bad, 3 out of the 4 MCs are bad, first the MC is probably the most forced always worrying like character with most of the time all read more

"Slow Start" is true to the name in that not much of substance really happens over the course of the whole show. I enjoyed it. I liked it. However, I just want this to be at the forefront for those who are thinking they'll see obvious and planned character development over the course of the season. The entire season seems more like stage-setting rather than altering character, mostly to show the quirks of each character in a much more magnified light.

That being said I'll need to admit two things: This is really the second CGDCT I have ever watched, and I found myself in love read more
