I normally don't like posting reviews at the beginning of a show's airing run, just because doing so with so few episodes seen is more like doing a first impression rather than a review.
And I've come to realize that people tend to give shit scores when they drop an anime after seeing, like, one episode, which didn't impress them enough. Therefore, a lot of great anime series in recent years (pretty much all of them) started off getting low scores compared to when it finished airing.
For example, a great show from spring 2017 season: Tsuki ga Kirei, which has a 8.38 now, read more

Just Because strives to make a mundane but realistic slice of life show and fails miserably.
A barebones story and realistic visuals just aren't enough to make a good show, there should be meaningful content to fill in the gaps. However, that's all that Just Because is, a series of blank gaps with sparse amounts of content that had me teetering in and out of consciousness.

I wish I could say that it is a unique take on a tried and true genre, but it isn't, in fact, it's awful. Low effort produces poor results, and this show is a testament to that sentiment.

Just Because! is the kind of anime which speaks for itself.. I want to get straight to the core points of the review because it's kind of hard to write an introduction based on just 2 episodes.

The story starts of a bit slowly, trying to give context to the viewer bit by bit as the characters interact and the story continues to pace. I think this is really important because the time zone of the story is like "not typical". So, it does a read more

"Just Because!" is the name of this anime but it is also the reason why im watching this, just beacause... okay, let's jump to review

The story is about a boy who comes back to his old neighborhood where he re-encounters with an old friend of his. As you can see story wise the anime is pretty vanilla wich is not a bad thing but certanly doesn't help to make it more interesting.
The art is ok, but the color scheme is pretty bland giving the anime an even more uninteresting look. Also the animation is pretty unsubstantial from a moment to another you are with a read more
