Suehara Maru is childhood best friends with one of Hozumino High School's most popular girls, Kuroha Shida. Cute, outgoing, and affectionate, Kuroha is the perfect older sister type. She has boys constantly begging at her feet to be with her. Yet, when she confesses to Suehara one day, he immediately rejects her; he just can't think of her in that way! Besides, he already has his sights set on his first love—school idol and renowned author Shirokusa Kachi.

Suehara believes that he has a chance with Kachi after one fateful meeting, but soon, he finds out that Kachi has a boyfriend! With his dreams now shattered, Suehara agonizes over what could have been. That is, until Kuroha approaches him with a proposal: "let's get revenge."

A failed attempt at an amazing concept.

Initially when looking at the shows I was potentially going to watch this Spring 2021 season, this show’s title caught me by the corner of my eye. ‘Osananajimi ga Zettai ni Makenai Love Comedy’ or otherwise known as, ‘Osakmake: The Romcom Where The Childhood Friend Won’t Lose’. Sounds amusingly interesting, right?

I’m sure everyone who has watched a handful amount of harem type shows has felt the pain of the childhood friend getting surprised sucker punched at the end of the series by another heroine. Osamake’s concept was supposed to be different though: “A romcom where the childhood friend won’t ...

- What do you hate about her?
- I hate everything about her.

- I'm not gonna know unless you tell me! If there's something you wanna say, say it out loud!

OsaMake is Rick and Morty of the Spring 2021 anime season. Meaning, high-culture intellectual entertainment that you need a creative writing diploma to fully appreciate, which gets jeered at by plebeians incapable of forming independent thoughts after they saw that one copypasta, as they remain blissfully unaware that it was written as a self-deprecating joke by a show’s fan - since recognizing satire is ...

*This review contains spoilers*

Watching Osamake is an incredibly painful experience. The story is riddled with so many dumb twists and cliches, and the characters always act so stupid and nonsensical that it becomes extremely difficult to sit through a single episode.

Osamake presents itself as a unique romcom that plays around with various tropes and cliches. The gimmick here is: where the childhood friend archetype in a harem anime usually gets rejected by the protagonist, she is not going to lose in Osamake. There's surprisingly a clever catch in this, though (probably the most intelligent part of the entire anime), as we later find out that ...
