Watched this a while back, but what stuck in my mind was the 'GODDAMN' by Narumi haha I am deceased.
Persona 4 (Golden obviously) is better than Persona 5 imo

A pretty solid start.
I am aware of the fact that this is one of the most popular new rom-com series'. I've been meaning to reading the manga for a while now but maybe I'll actually pick it up after the anime ends.

Narumi and Hijitaka look good together.

Really enjoyed this. There is definitely a lot of potential for a great romance. I was pleasantly surprised that they started dating so soon. Also, love the facial expressions Narumi makes.

As a single fujoshi otaku officer worker lady, this is my new favorite anime of the season.

I already hate Narumi.

I'll keep watching cause Hirotaka is cool, but I doubt I'll make it to the end.

Yeah pretty much this.

Couple established first episode, good.

Was not bored watching. Seems this romance might be worth watching.

It's refreshing to see another romantic comedy with characters older than high school-age.

I also like that this one seemingly picks up where more most other series end. Our two main characters already have a history, and apparently a relationship.

Good stuff. I'm definitely going to keep watching this one.

Yeah I really dig the almost quirky animations and the pleasant soundtrack. It's an interesting idea to start things off with the two main characters already having a history/possibly a relationship.

Exactly, that's what I though! Instead of having like 25 eps about them beating around the bush and not wanting to get with each other, they get into it right away.
Felt very refreshing.
I was 100% sure that she is going to say "No" to them dating, I was really pleasantly surprised.

This show is sweetness overload. The humor is also on point.

Also... a romance that is not set in a high school setting???

Looks like I am gonna enjoy this one.

I dunno why I was so looking forward for this, I don't like any of the charas
I also kinda wished for a different type of romance, not this kind of stupid and childish shit, on top of that they feel really flat and empty
"Every girl should have a Hirotaka" no thanks, he sucks. I'm tired of the quiet,reserved and cool stereotype and their huge popularity

Watched the first episode on Prime a few hours ago (Yes, it's finally up on the US version of Amazon). It was pretty good; not great, but good. I wasn't expecting something amazing out of this show, I just wanted a good introduction to the characters and a nice romantic comedy, and that's what I got. So far, Arisa Date as Narumi is pretty 'meh' for me (It's like the producers wanted her to sound cute), but everyone else in the cast is pretty good. A-1 Pictures' animation is OK, which is the usual case for them; not awful like most of SAO (I've watched through both seasons twice and the Ordinal Scale film), but not amazing like Idolmaster; Just OK. The OP & ED were nice. The ending was definitely anti-climactic, but let's see what happens in episode two if they do become an official couple. Overall, nice first episode; I'm just hoping it gets better as the show progresses, even with 11 episodes.

Creative OP with those hand signs & framing cuts, maybe best op so far.
Narumi's great as mc, more 3d kanojo-ish than 3d kanojo. Oh sword boys, sengoku basara & yaoi fan, & used to draw doujinshis.
Hirotaka's calm & not annoying like so many HS weaksauce. And they noted the double standards & otaku discrimination.
It's like KissHimNotMe + Gamers!, but better characters. Art's quite budget bland tho.

I love a good romance and this one is already so cute, funny and paced well! Plus, the animation is stellar!

It's really refreshing to see older characters and what they do~ I'm really looking forward to know more about all the characters and their relationships. Also the opening it's just really cute!!! (I've repeated that part in which they kinda do a dance so many times already.
Can't wait for the next episode~~

I wasn't expecting much of this anime. But the first episode was really good imo. Can't wait for next weeks episode.

Also I am a bit jealous because it seemed so easy in the end that the two of them start a relationship. Wish I know a guy who says something like "choose me" to me |D

The OP song is very good, too ^^

So I guess the only person that haven't "join the group" is Kabakura right? And I kind of seeing what it feels like to be a Hirotaka, until now. LOL

That's a lighthearted and fun start, Narumi exaggerated faces was so hilarious. Otaku fujoshi, Gamer, Crossdresser Cosplayer, I wonder if Tarou is also on the dark side xD

Cute OP, those hand gestures were adorable, same goes with ED. This gonna be my chilling show to relax, and would like to she how this otaku and gamer romcom goes.

It felt like an adult version of Gamers anime.

What an odd and cute confession, at first it looks like a game party request, grinding materials, quest, then goes on not gonna make you sad thing. Narumi reaction looks like she hit a jackpot negotiation, two birds with one stone I guess.

The fact that this isn't tagged as josei (or shoujo?) annoyed me while watching it but I still enjoyed the ep. Narumi's answer in the last scene was the best.

Looks like a nice and funny anime but damn A-1 Pictures, as usual good at marketing while meh at adapting.

I don't really like the premise, the characters or even the genre. I guess it's a well made show, but I suppose it's not really my style. I'm only watching it to find why it's so popular. Well, I guess if it's really good I might enjoy it. Even if I don't really like the genre, I still like some of the best shows of the genre.

tbh i prefer the manga, the adaptation was accurate but the animation wasn't the a+ i was expecting :/ hopefully it improves, I've already reread all the manga up to the current point. wish the studio doesn't disappoint! :(

Going into this show, I absolutely had no idea about it. I didn't read the manga. I gotta say though, the first episode of this show was enjoyable. With an extremely likable main cast, an OP that just makes you smile to your hearts content, and a generally light and fun atmosphere and tone to it. The first episode was just such a fun and enjoyable ride. I will be looking forward for more episodes of this show.

Also that opening is one the cutest openings I have ever seen. I dare you to watch that OP and not have a smile on your face while watching it. It's literally impossible.

The main girl is very annoying. The guy deserves a much better person.

This will probably have a high rating when it's is done, because it is a wet dream for a lot of people in here. I think it's a bit too cliche. 3D Kanojo is a better choice for this type of shows in this season. Even with its very slutty heroine.

But the real question is... how does the crossplayer hide her breasts? Or are they fake?
English isn't my mother language. I'm not saying you have to let me pass errors because of that. I'm trying to tell you that it would be nice if you correct me. I'm learning after all.

I think as far as first episodes go this is well established, it introduces us to the cast of characters showing us their interests and current positions, it also sets a theme for the show showing us a much less romanticised outlook on relationships. If you compare it to a show like the recovery of an MMO junkie it shares a lot of similarities however with a more relaxed approach to dating a more realistic view of adult romance. I think that further on this show will probably have a mixture of light-hearted moments paired with some more serious moments. as far as first episodes go I think this show could really show some uniqueness and be really enjoyable :)

Why is the OP so cute?! I hate it! <33333

Not gonna lie, Hirotaka's pretty smooth. Gotta appeal to what the gal likes but also make sure you're willing to actually do whatever you offer genuinely, not just to please. Personally though, as soon as he called me stupid I would have never considered, but whatever. There's no way I'd take that even as a joke. If that's what Narumi's okay with though, then it's their story not my own.

This reminds me of something, but I can't quite remember exactly which series.;;

Enjoy your anime!

This was hard to find on Amazon when searching by Japanese name, you have to look for English name: "Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku."

Enjoyed it and will keep watching for now but will not hope for too much; I felt let down by Net-juu towards the end.
...but then again, I unironically like Warau Salesman.

Not bad. The characters were about as bland as the backgrounds but hopefully we'll see some growth. I loved how the two otaku started dating - it was so direct! Also, while the OP wasn't a song I particularly loved it does stand out as being different. Might even be a grower.

Frustratingly predictable, even knew she'd be a klutz on the job. It's serviceable though, despite the lame premise. Dislike the MCs voice actress. The male characters carried ep1.

I was about to ask how does noitaminA get down to this level after Fune wo Amu a couple of seasons ago? (But then I remember they had Kuzu no Honkai and After the Rain, so I guess they're losing the plot overall)

Overall this first episode is fun, but it is not so interesting as I looked, also the graphics quality is not so high, oh well! I hope you get better, for now I look at it during free moments, when I wait for the other anime series of my liking.
