Before I begin, you can probably tell from the scores, but I have nothing good to say about this anime. Keep reading if you would like more detail on what I thought was bad about it.
Very simple romance story. Couple love each other (5%), relationship strained by circumstances(90%), guess the end(5%). (Percentages are of estimated time used)
Of course, even a simple story can be made entertaining in the right circumstances.......but that doesn't apply here.
The art is a bit dated, but along with the sound, it mostly does it's job, except, I'm not sure if it was the character art, the voice-acting, or a combination of
both, but I didn't feel a lot of emotion from either of the important characters. It felt more like I was watching a couple of bad actors.
In this anime, only two characters are of any real importance, only one of those gets much developement, and no time at all is wasted on developing the unimportant ones. Unfortunately, the main character doesn't seem (to me anyway), very real. She regularly gets upset, (understandable) and then she starts giving strange responses (Stranger than you would expect) to whoever she's talking to. I'm starting to think all the stress is affecting her sanity.
It doesn't help that there's regularly an odd delay between one person speaking and another person responding.
Now, 30 minutes isn't a long time, but for me it wasn't nearly short enough. it took maybe 10 seconds of watching for me to start bracing myself for impact. I'm serious.
Admittedly, a few of the things I've said might be overstated, but I'm not going back to check.
So, in conclusion, this anime just doesn't have anything going for it. I can't recommend it to anyone. The only reason to watch this is if you like romance and you honestly can't find/be bothered to find another.
And yes, I probably spent longer writing this review than watching the anime. I also enjoyed writing this review more than watching the anime.
What did you think of this review?
