Plot Summary


For a group of high school seniors, a chance reunion with a transfer student will change the course of their final year. Eita Izumi has come back to his hometown after four years and encounters some unlikely acquaintances: Haruto Soma, Eita’s childhood friend; Ena Komiya, the photography student who witnesses Eita and Haruto's reunion; Mio Natsume, whose feelings for her middle school crush still linger; and Hazuki Morikawa, a girl who seems uninterested in romantic relationships. When the paths of these five cross, their fates turn in a way none of them could have seen coming.

Episode 1

So it begins with the end of the high school life nearing, and these students are finding ways to deal with the upcoming graduation and life afterwards. The focus is on Ena, whose photography club is on the verge of being disbanded due to having only three members, and Eita who is playing baseball with Haruto as the latter has retired from baseball and is set to go to work. Mio is hard at work cramming for the entrance exams. Pretty bittersweet moment is it that's coming up for the kids, and it will be interesting to see how things go from hereon out.

I think episode 1 was a strong start I don't see a lot of anime attempting this timeline of either going to college or career path third year in High School so young to make your life choice when I think back. Girls just coming into the picture and awkward hormones with voice changing(puberty can be a bitch)

From the same studio as "Gamers!". I am liking Pine Jam from a aesthetic and composition point of view. The first episode was just setup so it is difficult to say if this will end up being good or not.

With that being said, Pine Jam did a good job with the Rom-Com genera last season, I wonder how well they can handle the Romance/Drama/slice of life genera that "just because" clearly is.

Episode 1

Heey, Just Because! is a-okay!

Not as charming and mature as Tsuki ga Kirei, but definitely more playful and energetic. Some of the cast has potential to be interesting and the use of CG is better used than how feel used it with Tsuki ga Kirei, so props to Pine Jam and Kobyashi with that!

Since this is his directorial debut, I do look forward to see what type of production will be dished out as the series continues along.

So far, not a bad episode and I'm liking the feel of it! Looks like Tawawa learned her lesson on being compelling ;D

Likeable - but feels like the show where someone dies at the end

There's a lot going on here... But I find I'm liking it. It's interesting, if for nothing else because of the focus on third years. That's pretty rare in anime.

Well Just Because looks like it's going to be a simple chill show too. Decent characterization. Nothing original. The background and environment art looks nice too. Just the character art and animation gets derpy at times. But I think I'll like it

I like the first episode. Like others, I am getting the Orange feel. I will be watching this one.

Pretty solid start and I'm intrigued to see where it all goes. Very much a down to earth feeling slow burn so far, but that can really work well when done well. I'm not totally sold on the art as it sometimes looks really good and then sometimes just looks off. The music is excellent though.

A lot of people were talking about this so I watched it (without knowing what it was about), unfortunately I got bored but to be fair I'm not into slice of life anime. The animation and the music were beautiful.
