The animation is atrocious and the score is lackluster but it's alright story-wise so I'm okay with it. The obvious pandering is also kind of annoying but I can deal with it. Overall it's okay. I can already tell it's better than the other two romance comedies this season, despite how low effort this production seems. Now we'll just have to see if it starts meandering from here.

Now that I think about, having to work to do important things like us, we just get tired as we watch Wotakoi while watching these characters to do work at day while we do our otaku thing in the afternoon and talking about otaku by night time like we always do. I am so going to watch this series from now on!

Not only do I love these two but I ship them so damn hard!!!!

Wth did Narumi mean by he's not her type? He's hot! Honestly if there's one thing about anime that leaves me confused is when hot-looking characters are considered unattractive or average in their world (another example being Tatsuya from Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei).

Hirotaka is bf material!

And that OP was so cute. I have high hopes for this anime :)

Looks like I will have some fun with it. A lot of weird situations can be done with the couple.

What's up with the stiff animation? And the cinematography was quite mediocre as well. Man, it was a rough premiere. Nothing's good.

The OP was definitely impressive. I was entertained by the OP more than anything in this episode.

A-1 knows what they’re doing when they shamelessly include advertisements for their upcoming Saekano movie... and yes, Narumi, Katou is indeed cute and best girl.

Jokes aside, this pilot episode felt so charming and funny at the same time and reminds me of... well, Saekano! Love the chemistry between the characters and those references to the Switch and Monster Hunter were so random yet amusing. Japanese gaming cilture at its finest. Can’t wait for more of this!

Just a side note, I didn’t know Yato became a bartender XD

It was nice and fun enough, but I don't expect to get any game references.
Seems like the guy likes her for a long time but she doesn't seem to see him in a romantic light yet. Let's see how this goes.
Also, fictional cigarettes annoy me almost as much as real ones lol.

Love the manga (ongoing) and loved this start, voices all match fairly nice. I'm glad this got an adaptation, I've been watching too many love-triangle and drama heavy romances that I forgot what a nice rom-com can do to the heart.

I love this new refreshing (not in High School) Romantic Comedies . Maybe because i am wayyy passed High School and it fits my current lifestyle. (Working with my spouse)

That was unexpectedly good. I was entertained from start until the end. The concept about otakus falling in love. I think it would resonate with those trying to find a job or in the workplace, especially for those hopeless otakus and with that, this show gives us hope! Moreso with weebs like me haha.

Another rom-com this season. Well well, looks like spring is the season of love XD (...while myself still single T_T)

The OP is beautiful, especially that finger dance, my finger suddenly follow that move. The story is, ..yeaaahh..., just like common rom-com except almost all of the character is otaku. The last man isn't revealed yet about he's otaku or not.

And that's a super rare way to ask woman to going out, damn son.

The amount of rom-coms in this anime season is too damn high! (not really complaining though, I like my rom-coms)

I've seen anime referencing video games before but they're usually older games and are depicted more as a parody (or they censor it outright) but this just straight up put actual gameplay footage from Monster Hunter in there XD

So they're going out but it feels more business-like and it's one-sided too, still interesting tho. Love the saekano reference.

This is gooooooooood! This should be a fun anime to watch and it will probably be relatable to a lot of us. I always like when animes advertise like this, we saw the switch, monster hunter, and Saekano.

It's nice to have a romance comedy that isn't set in high school for once, also they start dating instantly which is the best thing about the episode

I love this! I don’t start shipping characters in just the first episode often but this couple is just too adorable! And relatable too, maybe because I’m an anime freak like them and my bf was also just an otaku friend at first. The way in which the main guy asked the main girl out was really sweet and realistic. Can’t wait for the next episodes!

oK, it's only the first episode but I already love this!! It was so freaking cute, I can't even. T.T

I guess I would call myself a fujoshi but, tbh, it's more like I'll watch anything: m/f, m/m, f/f so I don't really have a preference because I'm open to all of it! But this was so freaking relatable and the humor is so good!! :D

Great first episode showcasing the day of otakus. I really like the interaction the two main characters. Narumi is a hilarious and always in good mood character. Being an otaku in secret isn't easy, but this shows promises good comedy with romance. Looking forward for the other couple. That ending tho, wasn't excepting him to say that.

It seems anime has kindov been on an older protagonist bender for a couple years now... Net-Juu, 25-Sai, Re:Life, NEW GAME, Imouto sae Ireba, and this show all feature protags out of High School. Some of them are 22 and up, and one is even 30. It's really weird seeing all these adult shows recently.

I'm not complaining mind you, since after joining the military at 18 and spending over 5 years of my youth in there - I now find myself at the age of 25 going to school with kids 7 years younger than me. Which means watching anime with know-nothing 16 year olds has actually gotten sortov awkward for me, since I'm almost a decade older than them now... I don't necessarily FEEL adult really, but if I went back in time to my 16 year old self I'd probably think I was an immature brat with no life-experience (which would be true).

So seeing all these new shows with older protagonists around my age is actually very comforting. Sad to see Wotaku getting an abysmal short series length of 11 episodes, just like Net-Juu, but unlike Net-Juu the MCs here have apparently begun dating at the BEGINNING of the series instead of the end. Very wise decision.

Looking forward to watching Cute Adults Doing Responsible Things.

I smell this season's romantic hit.
It was both fun and relatable. The characters seem so nice. The Office vibes here and there with some otaku sauce all over it.

It was rather funny how Narumi wanted to hide that she's a fujoshi hahaha. It is good to show one's liking, and she's an adult now, what does she have to be afraid of? normies can have even weirder stuff to be into.

Please, tell me that Hirotaka and Narumi don't look cute af together?? His kuudere demeanor reminds me of Nozaki-kun (Girl's Monthly Nozaki-kun) and the cherry on top being he's the opposite of her. Calm, quiet, and totally not kawaii xD

Damn boy, Tarou's voice is hot af. Damn man. No wonder you get to score with Hanako.

Anyway, I liked this show since I got to know it was an anime coming. I didn't know of it till then but something on it grabbed my attention. No highscool setting, adult charas, real life problems with humor, romance... Please, I was all in.

PD: That lewd handshake at the end tho...

Yes yes yes. There are but they are not bound to be good. Also, they tend to be short (this one is only 11 eps :sadface: )
