i dont useably listen/watch the opening song but this time is was so fun i didn't want to skip it. the actual story is interesting with how its a battle of there pride. i only have 2 problems with this anime so far, 1. the speaking/ subtitles go way to fast and its difficult to keep up with and 2. im confused about how it ended but i dont know if thats the anime fault or if im just being dumb. so far tho this looks to be promising.

very fun and often funny largely thanks to how OTT and stylish it is. without that it wouldn't have any impact. i worry it'll wear out its welcome tho

I was worried about the adaptation being shit but it's actually decent so far. Also Kaguya's VA was great but it will take a while for me to get used to Shirogane's. Kaguya's "ara ara" and "how cute" was top-notch.

I thought the first episode was pretty decent but I worry that if this is what the entire season is going to be then it will get repetitive real quick. The same joke over and over with a slight different spin on it. So no character or plot progression. Hopefully this show has staying power.

The manga breaks hard from the formula and status quo pretty early on but the anime probably wont reach too far to actually see the more substantial changes and developments, but they are there in stride both romantic and not.

As for what this 12 episodes will adapt, i do worry people might find it a bit repetitive but thankfully even though every chapter still lists them with winners and losers, the actual contents don't always imply a mind game so there is actually a fair amount of variety even early on when the series is much more simplistic but dont expect too too much, cause as i said, the start is still rather simplistic and they are clearly still just trying to figure things out

That was more SHAFT-y than I had expected.

It's a fun show overall. Definitely a great adaptation coming from Omata. It has some cool scenes with great animation and technique.

5/5

A MUST WATCH SERIES!!! THATS ALL I HAVE TO SAY!!! I AM AMAZED AND 🙂🙂🙂🙂 WITH THE WAY KAGUYA AND SHIROGANE ARE HAVING THEIR PRIDE ON WHOM TO CONFESS FIRST ETC. THEIR PRIDE SURE IS AT HIGH and i am loving this one...

Plus adding chika to the duo making it more interesting.

Worth the watch, and i love it..

Well I'll stick with it for now but I'm glad to see that it won't be a formulaic romcom though if it takes to a second season to see any real change...

I don't read many manga series but perhaps I'll take a peek into this and see what there is to look forward to. :)

always saw so much hype for this i felt like i tried reading this years ago or thought about it and never did but it's a fun silly romcom that did it's job in making me laugh but boy is it busy not in a bad way from the visuals in the op to the show expressing the characters thoughts it's a lot to take in at such a rapid pace lol but it works for them also the VAs are doing a great job.

i like the balance of the battles hopefully it doesn't wear it's self out too quickly and this could be a really great romcom

I must say this episode has set a great benchmark for the series, it was unique and hilarious to watch. Both of them have too much pride and I like it. I'm really hyped for the next episode.

Well, not having read the manga I wasn't expecting this series to be this good.
The animation is nothing spectacular, but it's really charming. The characters are fun so far and this "war" between them is both hilarious and kinda cute. I like the designs, specially Kaguya's eyes, and I like the opening is almost as much as Mob Psycho's.

I'd say it's my third favourite of the season after Mob and Dororo.
An 8.5/10 from me so far.

A-1 is going all-in with this adaptation, which made so happy, the OSTs, OP theme, the animation, and the eargasmic work from Aoi Koga as Kaguya, my M side showed up a little everytime her catch phrase appeared. 10/10, hope the quality maintains til the end. Also glad the song that appeared in the PV wasn't the actual OP and instead we got this 70s Japanese like song.

Has some cute moments, but as someone who hasn't read the manga yet, I have to wonder whether it will get frustrating after a while.

Haha, this anime is enjoyable...Love js complicated isn't it? Haha it's like doing a really difficult exam...Chika Fujiwara is still the best for me haha, she plays an important role I think and she can become the trigger too. Not all the content is funny but their way of thinking are funny I think, especially if it's about love, maybe they are thinking too much haha.

If they toned down the narration, or eliminated it altogether, it would be a lot better.

This show is like 80% monologue & 20% dialogue 😂 Also, my brain hurts from watching this, and it’s not like it doesn’t make any sense or anything, it’s kinda just how this show structured... I guess 🤷‍♂️

This was a great start, better than I thought it would be.

A-1 is busy with the mammoth SAO S3, but they still got a solid production staff to make this show visual impressive. Same goes for the animation, too. It had a feel to it like I was watching a SHAFT-animated show, which is a good thing. =)

The Opening song also had a nice, retro feel to it and it'll be one that I'll be watching over and over again throughout the season.

Shirogane and Kaguya's battles were really amusing and I loved it. Chika's more of an airhead personality-wise compared to the other two, but she still played a big role in the second and third chapters of this episode. She's already overpowered in my mind and I want her to stay like that. =P

So a great start overall and if they keep this form up, then any worries of repetitiveness will be washed away from my mind. ^_^

Finally had the time to see it. I was a bit wary of the adaptation of one of my favorite manga, but they've done a real good job. About my only little beef would be that the VA's voices sound a lot deeper than I would have imagined. Makes them seem older than they really are.

We got a Hayasaka sighting! Love her character!

I knew I was going to like this anime because I love RomComs but damn this episode was so good! I felt it was different from most other romcoms to an extent. Like in most you as the viewer are waiting for one to ask the other out an be a couple. Where in this it's more like "Okay which one is going to sway the other into asking them out." It's more or less like watching a competition. I'm on board for this one.
Plus the animation is fantastic.

That part where Shirogane taped up the broken pencil, only for him to break it again, had me laughing good.


I'm glad I wasn't the only one who caught that. That part was so funny.

This was fucking perfection. A-1 knocked it out of the park. I was so nervous that they would fuck it up like they did so many else, but they managed to capture the essence of the manga very well.

My only gripe is that I can't get used to the fact that Shirogane is blonde. I thought he would be silver-haired. Nonetheless, that's not a negative in the long run.

P.S. Can I get this narrator to narrate my life for me, please?

Just you wait. It may be "repetitive" in the first chapters but new characters are introduced (included the MVP of the whole show Ishigami) and at some point the story have actual progression and story arcs.

I was really worried about this adaption, but it seems that was unnecessary. Kaguya seems less cold than she was at the start of the manga, but whatever. Looking forward to the next episode.

this really feels like a spiritual successor to last years Karakai Jouzo no Takagi-san, and considering that was one of my favourite (if not the favourite) shows of last year, thats a good sign ≧◡≦

really funny and quirky, if it keeps up like this it be really great ^^
