I watched this anime in one sitting due to it's short nature. I'm in general, a fan of shorter series since they give a more solid and straight forward story, which was done very well in this series, although not really as short as this one.
The emotions felt genuine although the plot itself was quite predictable. I have mixed thoughts on the lenght of the series.Though I wish that I could've spent more time with these wonderful characters, at the same time I believe making it a longer series would just dilute the emotion that this anime delivers.
In its short nature, I believe it's done the job fantastically :)

That beer guzzling scene made me LOL

Such a perfect ending to a great anime. About the only thing I didn't like about it was when Aka cried it just sounded so fake.

I still think more would've been better like they could've skipped a few years into the future and had a kid or something but I'm sure not everyone wants to see that.

It was a nice romantic series anyways which just got right to the point so it was quite enjoyable for me.

9/10 from me.

8.5/10 (all 10 episodes)

9/10 overall. The ending was great. It was short so it didn't feel dragged out at any point. The only episode I didn't like was the special episode. It felt really out of place and I just didn't like it at all.

Edit: Yep, this is definitely one of those that I can't get out of my head for a while.

It was short, but even more worth the time. Overall a great anime.

I must say that this last episode was wonderful. It felt nice to watch. With that being said, I won't boost the score too much just because of one good episode. I had gripes with the rest of them.

I must give props for this anime being realistic, which might be why I don't like it too much. Just like real life in some ways, but not a real life that I'd like to have. My main problem is the characters. I didn't like either of them. The animation and voice acting or maybe just the characters invoked no emotion in me. The emotional moments didn't feel genuine to me. That really killed it.

It was nice in some ways, though, and I can't say that I hated it. Had some qualities that most anime don't, but lacked a spark.

6/10 from me.
moving on.

I hate it when anime/manga that I enjoyed ends, especially when there could be much longer plot and when I love main heroine :P

I wish I had magic glasses that let me see real world in anime colors ;)

it was a pretty good anime i did really enjoy watching it sadly it was only 9 + 1 (spec)short episodes but on the other hand they really did a good job maybe because it was so short cause at times long series tend to fail at some aspects which gets the enjoyment down cause they keep on stretching the anime.

i honestly didnt expect this show to take the route it did, but i really liked the way it turned out, it was pretty good aside from the conflicts feeling a bit forced imo and some of the plot being kinda silly

Very good anime but I have one complaint. The weak and easily influenced character of Matsumaru. So he basically was feeling down, and trying to destroy their relationship with mean lines just because he wasn't doing well in work? Aka did nothing at fault, she only missed the dinner time. If it wasn't for the manger imo they would have departed their ways long ago.

Other than that, pretty good short, made me smile several times

Matsumaru acted like the loser mc from sakurasou in these last 2 eps, so annoying.

I guess it was kind of this girl's fault as opposed to shiina who was autistic.

Cheesy and predictable but short and sweet. Not baddd.

Good ending! It was a bit too much fights/dramas even for me, but It was an interesting take on Romance anime

I love it. Watched Rec in one session, and after finishing the last episode, I started smiling and laughing (couldn't stop giggling for minutes), they did something right.

I really liked this anime. But 9 short episodes isn't enough. Wished it was full series but oh well. I'm gonna miss matsumaru and aka :(

Really good anime, wish it was longer. I gave it a 8/10, could have been higher if it was longer.

The story was pretty mature. This director is something else.
And still, Bill will live on.
He will befriend the next inhabitants of the earth, beings of light who revere him as a god.
And Bill will outlive them all... for millions and millions of years...exploring, learning, living,
until the earth is swallowed beneath his feet.
Until the sun is long since gone.
Until time loses all meaning and the moment comes that he knows only the positions of the stars
and sees them whether his eyes are closed or open.
Until he forgets his name and the place where he'd once come from.
He lives and he lives until all of the lights go out.

Whelp alot happend in 9 10 minutes long episodes, it was decent I guess. Didn't enjoy it as much as I should have surprisingly but it wasn't bad by any means.
