Restaurant worker Minare Koda has recently been through a bad breakup. Heartbroken and drunk after a night out, she rants about her misery to a complete stranger—Kanetsugu Matou, a radio station director local to Sapporo, Hokkaido.

The next day at work, Minare is shocked to hear a recording of herself from the previous night playing over the radio. Flustered, she rushes to the radio station in a frenzy to stop the broadcast. As she confronts Matou, a chain of events leads to her giving an impromptu talk live on air, explaining her savage drunken speech. With her energetic voice, she delivers a smooth dialogue with no hesitation, which Matou recognizes as raw talent.

Minare soon becomes a late-night talk show host under Matou's direction, covering amusing narratives set in Sapporo, all while balancing her day job and personal life to make ends meet.

Someone wake me up from this weird dream because I feel like I entered the Twilight Zone. Watching Nami yo Kittekure (Wave, Listen to Me!) is perhaps one of the most bizarre yet exhilarating experiences I’ve had this year.

At the heart the show is about a woman named Minare Koda, who is dealing with a breakup with her ex-boyfriend. After an incident with an older man from a drunken night, her voice becomes an icon and she enters a world she’s never began to imagine before. Welcome to a world where voices expressionism is an icon and sensation. That being said, Nami yo Kittekure translates read more

In keeping with the rant-fueled, on-air radio motif this anime is centered around, I thought I’d shake up my formula by recording myself impromptu reviewing this show and then transcribing it into a MAL review unedited, so enjoy seeing just how much of a hack I am without the weeks of heavy editing I put into my usual writing. I censored names and stuff I wouldn’t put in my proper reviews, but otherwise the following is raw and unscripted.

In advance, thank you for reading.


So you’ll always expect a show which, either, is very esoteric and appeals to a small number of people and/or a show read more

Radio's quite an old technology, and as a mere human who's probably still hatching into adulthood I'd say that radios aren't really my type of thing. I rarely listen to them and when I do it's mostly from stupid reasons such as my father opening it inside his car or when there's somehow a radio lying about near my present designation. Still, does disliking radio really affect my perspective towards an anime which is essentially, ultimately about radio broadcasting? The answer is, of course, totally obvious, a straight "No".

Heck, I actually laughed a lot whilst watching Wave, Listen to me. The concept of making read more

Nami yo Kiitekure, which I’ll be calling “Wave” for short, is quite the sleeper in my books. If it weren’t for such unprecedented times and the resultant cancellation of shows from Spring 2020’s catalog, Wave could have quite easily fallen by the wayside, hovering under a MAL score of 7 for its first few episodes. And what a sad scenario that would have been, as Wave has been a refreshing experience through and through. Here’s my (mostly) spoiler-free thoughts on Wave and why I think this show is most certainly worth your time.

Wave is told from the perspective of the fast-talking Minare Koda, a cynical read more
