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.

In keeping with this show’s ranting, alcohol-fueled radio show motif, I thought I’d get drunk, record myself reviewing this show verbally, and then transcribe it into a MAL review unedited, so enjoy seeing just how much of a hack I am without the extensive editing I usually put into my writing. I censored names and stuff which I wouldn’t typically put in my 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 which is super high-minded and “deep” about ...

Mixed Feelings
I'm so genuinely conflicted about this show. On the one hand, I can't really say I didn't enjoy it. I found it entertaining enough, I liked the majority of the characters the majority of the time, and I generally didn't find myself bored. But, at the same time, I have this weirdly lukewarm feeling about it.

Going in, I thought it might be a few things. A semi-serious drama, a romance with a decent gimmick, even just a wild, oddball comedy. But the character drama was rarely there and rarely played seriously, there wasn't any real emphasis or development on character relationships, and while it ...

Preliminary (9/12 eps)
This entire anime (or at least to episode 9) is like watching the beginning of Black Clover where Asta's character was just "obnoxious screaming".

The lead is loud, obnoxious, and unfunny. The side characters have more interesting things happening in their lives than the mc. Idk if I can finish this garbage. Like can ANYTHING interesting happen.

Can the Mc die and we just switch over to the rest of the cast. I promise, RIGHT NOW, if that happens I'll give this anime a 6 maybe a 7. The one thing I want to see is this MC get some kind of deserving punishments for screwing ...
