Watch Junjou Romantica Instead ...
18 January 2013 | by izibellzSee all my reviews

This anime's pretty much a lesser version of Junjou Romantica. It's less romantic, not as funny, and frankly kind of ... boring. Some of the Junjou characters do make cameo appearances, but I don't know whether this because both series are created by the same people, or what. At first, the shōjo manga department angle is funny, but after a while it becomes tedious. Why is Ritsu exhausted? Because he's overworked. Why does Kisa not have enough time for Yukina? Because he's overworked. Etcetera, etcetera, ETCETERA! You can see where I'm going with this ... o_o The various characters also spend a lot of time moping. And, my God, it takes Ritsu and Masamune FOREVER to get over their silly problems.

Otherwise, a lot of the characters really got on my last nerve, too. I liked Chiaki, Yuu, Kisa, Yukina, Isaka, and ... that was it. Everybody else seriously grated: Yokozawa, with all his nonsense; Ritsu, with his refusal to admit to anything just for the sake of it; An, with her apparent hearing impairment: HE'S JUST NOT THAT INTO YOU (!!); and Masamune and Hatori, who were so thoroughly uninteresting that I could barely keep my eyes open to read the subtitles when they were on-screen.

Yeah. Unless you're interested in mundane characters who just can't seem to get their cheesecake together in a timely fashion, I recommend Junjou Romantica.
