Beginning his first year of high school, all Matsuboshi Raidou wants is to make friends—starting with the cute, tiny, and soft-spoken Reina Aharen, who sits right next to him in class. Unbeknownst to Raidou, Reina shares the same sentiment, but she has a problem. Awkward and timid, Reina is incapable of determining how chummy she has to be when approaching a person.

Due to Reina's complete inability to gauge personal space, the two struggle to spark their unlikely friendship, as even the simplest tasks like talking seem impossible for them. But despite the countless yet pointless challenges that hinder the pair, the overly imaginative Raidou will do whatever it takes to befriend the indecipherable Reina.

As you might see from my previous reviews, I have very little tolerance for anime that phones it in. Whether it be an anime that takes itself seriously and falls flat, or that doesn't take it seriously but can't deliver, I'm usually pretty hard on anime when they don't measure up.

This is one I actually really liked and don't have too many negative things to say (but there are a few).

This is a comedy. There are ordinary situations taken to absurd lengths for comedic effects, and then those absurd lengths become part of "canon" and are lampshaded by other characters. This is ...

The titular Aharen-san is diminuitive, quiet girl that has a particular set of skills. Raido is a large and imposing boy who often comes off as stand-offish, so he doesn't develop many relationships. These two high schoolers go from uncertain of each other to joined at the hip, and this series actually develops its romances rather quickly, though its side characters range from forgettable to frustrating.

In all, it’s a cute production with decent art and a sweet relationship at its heart. Unfortunately, it’s milquetoast. The central joke runs its course early, becoming rote rapidly, and while the series does have a good deal of heart ...

Aharen-san wa Hakarenai it's a decent anime.

The animation it's good, the characters are developed through the show. But for me, the anime fall into the sameness.

It's the same pattern, it's like a copy and paste with a little development of the characters.

I found it enjoyable, but it was very hard to keep the same energy through the entire anime.

So in my opinion, the anime start strong and from that, went down little by little.

If you just want to laugh a little maybe Aharen-san wa Hakarenai it's good for you. But if you want a comedy anime that keep improving while developíng it's ...
