oww, i didn't expect much from this anime - i really don't know why. however, 1st episode was quite nice! totally got me! :) light and fun and very relatable.
i'm unsure about the animation quality, it was not the very best - but it didn't bother me much overall.

+ i really like Sawashiro Miyuki, glad to recognize her voice here! loved her voice acting as Bishamon and Kimishima Kana, and now her voice fits Hanako quite well so far, i think.

Remember reading the first couple chapters a ways back. This animated version was so much more enjoyable and man, Hirotaka is so relatable. Anime having a similar vibe to Net-juu which I really enjoyed as well.

The OP is really nice, I love it when they're doing those hand gestures.

I loved that first episode, lots of fun, really enjoyable, that episode really hyped me so hard, the reference of Saenae was really nice, last scene was like a confession but in a funny away! Promising episode, this anime atmosphere was prefect for me!

episode 10/10 for me!

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.


They're childhood friends, so the dynamics are different.

I don't take that from my childhood friends either. I can note one childhood friend who tried pretty much this episode's shenanigans (though at the time I didn't realize it). I wasn't down.
But like I said, if that's what Narumi's okay with then okay. I understand that what's okay is going to differ from person to person. This is Narumi and Hirotaka's story, not my own. I'm not trying to self-insert here. lol

Enjoy your anime!

I will definitely watch more of this, but I felt they really rushed to set things up. I was hoping for a bit more drama and/or suspense, but maybe it will come later. :) We'll see. It just seemed a bit too perfect of a story so far.

So funny! Loving this series already. It kind of reminds me of Gekkan Shoujo. The end was a bit confusing lol, cuz she didn't understand what he meant but then they said they were dating at the end? Wut?

Anyways, looking forward to more.

should i be reading this???

this season is actually really good for romance apparently. weirdly all anime i really liked are either shoujo or something romantic.
anyway, first thought i had was "wow, so much pink" but i guess we do have a color scheme going on here for the main characters. i do relate a lot to hirotaka (and snorted out loud when i heard his name for reasons) but it is refreshing to see an adult relationship that is not drama. definitely watching this!

As expected of A-1 Pictures, it looks shitty, the background art and objects and animation is very very drab.

BUT HIROTAKA IS THE CUTEST MAN IN GLASS I'VE EVER SEEN. Everything ab his design is just right.

Totally didn't expect Hirotaka to pull that move so determined, and in the first episode allready. I like it. With that cleared up, there'll be less akwardness and more comedy!

I guess it does differ from person to person. When I'm with childhood friends (male and female), 'stupid' is probably the least we call eachother. I honestly can't imagine being offended that easily, especially not when it's coming from friends.

No, that's not it at all. She just comes across as shallow with her preference in guys. Obviously not being a virgin doesn't make you a slut and nobody said it has to be one or the other.

It was implied.

Narumi is 26, she's mentioned two boyfriends,.. two. She clearly had serious intentions with both of them herself, and was sorely dissapointed by the second to the point of quiting her job. She's observed herself that she probably has a poor taste in men. Exactly how does this make her shallow, or a slut?

If you'd said you prefer women that make better choices from the onset, are not at all worried about public appearance, or that it would have made the story more interesting if she was like that, that'd been perfectly acceptable. The whole slut-virgin thing is not.

Whether you thought something here was implied is all on you because I don't see the implication you see there. It never states it's one or the other with no other possibilities. It just says x would be better than y.

Her poor taste in men and the way she is worried about her public appearance are part of what make her appear shallow to me. I also think you're taking the slut thing too literally when it was more of a hyperbole here. Though I guess I pretty much asked for it by expressing my distaste for her character in a mostly pro-narumi thread so whatever.

I do want to clarify that I meant: Whether someone is a childhood friend or not, if they approached me asking for a deeper relationship while calling me "stupid" even as a joke, I wouldn't be down.

But since you mentioned it, I do think that does apply for childhood friends or friends in general for me.

I guess for me it's a respect thing? I get absolutely no fun out of degrading my friends even as a joke because I just respect and love them so much in my own way. Most of my friends seem to go through so much already, mostly with others putting them down and/or them putting themselves down. I really don't want to add to that negativity and would rather add more positivity whenever I can. Their favorite anime and such, on the other hand, will get the works. And that's not to say that calling your friends degrading things means you don't respect them-- especially as a joke. I just don't joke like that myself.

As for my friends or anyone calling me degrading things even as a joke, I was eventually taught not to take that just out of respect for myself. My friends do try to slip in things like, "We're such trash". Nope nope. I am not the equivalent of the things I like and neither are you. (I swear I'm not a fun sucker who sucks the fun out of everything.)

More in relation to what I meant at first about those asking for a deeper relationship, I was also taught things like... if he can call you "stupid" now, imagine what he can call you when he's mad. Or, if he doesn't respect you now, what makes you think he'll respect you later? It's all fun and games at first, but when mad day comes around, it hurts. Yadda. (And boy oh boy, have I got stories in relation to this from just as recent as last night.)

But like I said before, what matters to some doesn't matter to others-- or what's okay differs from person to person. I might be cautious about entering a deeper relationship with a friend who calls me degrading things as a joke, but others might just laugh along or even do it right back without a problem. As long as they trust each other, then it's all good.

AND OF COURSE, I kinda doubt Hirotaka is going to give Narumi the beat down and really doubt there will be much of a problem at all. It was probably meant to be endearing. I also am totally not trying to imply that anyone who calls their friends degrading things is going to get the beat down either!;;
I'm just saying personally this would have been the first and last episode, but I'm glad not everyone is like me or else we'd be having a whole bunch of one shot episode anime. :U

( A lot omitted. Some things might not make sense anymore. Sorry in advance. )

Enjoy your anime!

Ah, it wasn't clear to me that you were referring specifically to the instance of asking you for a deeper relationship. I can get behind that.

Regarding the endearing thing between Hirotaka and Narumi: I think it's a bit of a classical "lost in translation" thing too. "Baka" can carry a slightly different weight than "stupid".

wtf is this, why is this rated anything? It's a shitty contrived plot that gets reused every season, the script is absolute garbage, the characters are unlikable. Is it because it has a few references you can recognize built in so you use that as an affirmation to feel good about yourself? This show is seriously garbage.

i don't think i did, and i actually read what you wrote.
you said and i quote: "It just says x would be better than y." and you did directly quoted a post saying that you pretty much agree that it would be better if she was a virgin and not a "bad boy chasing slut".
it's not even implied, you directly agreed with that.
you should read what you wrote again, not me.

and i'm not pro narumi. i actually identify a lot with hirotaka and although i personally think she's a little annoying, the only thing i like about her is that she's an adult female character that actually feels like a real 26 y/o woman. okay, she does have poor taste in men and very little luck with relationships, but man, she's 26 and she's not and shouldn't be perfect.

As much as I love the protagonist's personality, I cannot stand her voice at all (have low tolerance for high pitch sounds), so I am probably going to drop the anime until they make an English dub (if ever). >.<

if you just think she's is shallow and don't agree with the rest of what that other guy was saying, maybe don't quote a post calling her a slut for not being a virgin saying that's "pretty much" it.
you can't blame us for understanding something that's exactly what is written.

i don't judge her bad taste but i do think she's a bit too worried about appearances, though.

I expected this to be 7/10 show about excessively painful otaku life. And I didn't expect it to be that good! What's more, Narumi is a likable main character! Otaku girls in anime I watch are usually annoying and/or dumb, so I'm happy. Besides, what a beautiful art! I love it, I really do.

This show is darn right adorable.
Hiro's hand gestures at 20:45 part of the episode were so hilarious xD

I like that they mentioned Saekano's Megumi as well. Overall I enjoyed this episode and it will be a fun ride considering the main characters are otakus.
Momose's way of typing when Hiro asked why she wasn't finished with her work pretty much is related to me. I type so slow at night since my keyboard is loud when typing.

Meh so far this anime didnt seem so great. I feel really annoyed about the main girl. I mean in all honesty, is there still people beyond emo highschoolers, that hate being otakus? I mean come on it is who are, you dont have to be in evryone's ace about but atleast accept yourself for who you are.

I have read the earliest chapters in the manga, and the animation seems okay and resembles the manga a lot.

The story line in the first chapter is not bad, and had the right pace in it. A good thing, then.

I don't expect Narumi's voice will be like that, tho. I thought it will be more bass (did I spell that right?). It's not like I am the type of person who sees seiyuu before watching anime, so that's my fault to expect something. But the seiyuu did a really great job in funny scenes. I love to see more of her work!

The comedy is good (not that good), coz sometimes it was cringe-worthy.

Opening ...

This was a lot more entertaining than I thought it'd be. And what an interesting confession and reaction in the end, lol. Not really expecting the romance to go too far but hopefully I'm proven wrong. But otherwise, I'm sure the show will be a fun watch so I'm looking forward to that.

Honestly, I thought this was going to be cringey but everything was subtle. Even thr MC guy isn't that stereotypical tsundere but overly abusive character type.

Both characters are great and so far I like Narumi and Koyanagi the most.

I'm not feeling the OP yet but I might warm to it after some time and I think the ED is much better.

Well this was one of romcom that i expected this spring and i am totally loved it at first sight, after a long time at least i found something that relatable to my lifestyle.( young adult/adult life as a worker with games, animanga related hobbies/lifestyle, the differences are i dont have any romance thing in my life lol).

the comedic and light romance approach in it was really good, and somehow it feels hit the jackpot while combining it with "otaku" lifestyle in adult life. I'll be expecting more of greatness in following eps.

ps. daym gintoki x tsukuyo ( kabakura x hanako) make a great impact in this series
