I think Ill stick this one through, it has the makings of something that could be great. Just... isnt yet


I just hope it isn't painful to watch for much longer... I like the premise but, it is just sadistic what they are doing to poor Chiwa. And she is so cute! I know how I expect it will go but it is the journey that makes these shows interesting, not the end. If the journey is too painful to watch and I'm not enjoying myself I may have to stop. Here's hoping it picks up but i have a feeling the sadistic nature of Masuzu is the attraction of the show. Will give it at least one more.

See, I absolutely love shows which have a sadistic/psychotic character in them. Usually more when they're semi-serious shows with fairly deep psychological stuff behind them, but a good bit of sadism always goes down well. The only reason I watched all of total eclipse was because of how happy killing off all those annoying highschool girls in the first 2 episodes made me....

I enjoy that too but not in a romance. I thought this was more of a romantic comedy. I like it in Psycho Pass, thrillers, horror, but not in my rom coms.

It works for me with Heartseed in Kokoro Connect. And Megumi in Say I Love You is a real bitch but... This feels different somehow. It is effective, I feel the emotions but they are unpleasant. I like shows with sadness but this kind of treatment of someone brings back bad memories.

Hmm, Guess I just dont have enough bad memories at this age for it to be a problem! I just really enjoy the more realistic slice of lifes, beck, kids on the slope kind of very grounded stories. I cant help but feel like having a character who is just a total mean bitch helps things somewhat.

For the most part high school was good ... But I watch these things as escapes. Realistic is good but I want to tell the characters to wise up in this one!

This show is pretty good. I have watched the first two episodes and it has an interesting story to it.

The silly thing is I get Gangan Joker magazine but never bothered to read the manga for this show!

This month's issue comes with a poster showing Masuzu being very nice to Chiwa, Masuzu looking a bit sexy in a black nightgown with black pompomed nightcap and Chiwa looking cute in a hood with ears, Chihuahua I assume. They are in bed and seem to be having an innocent but happy time.

I shall read the last six months of the manga... First one wasn't great. The art in the anime is a lot better which is part of why I am was not drawn to it. In the latest issue she is still kind of nasty. Girls around her should not sleep naked...

Didn't love the second episode. Was actually painful to watch in spots and was tempted to turn it off... I made it through but will see how long I last.


Dont give up on Chiwa yet.

I'm worried it's going to get boring later with the whole club angle, but for now it's pretty entertaining. We'll see how it goes.

The only thing that was particularly annoying to me so far was the big brother type things Eita said to Chiwa, even though they are the same age. Eat your vegetables or you won't grow?? Bitch please, she isn't a kindergartener. Well, I guess she kind of asks for it with the way she acts but still.

I'm not a fan of the cruelty aspect, though I get the impression it is being setup to change later. We'll see how it goes. I definitely think that Masuzu is really in love with Eita. I also think she may be a compulsive liar.

One of the winter animes I chose and it's pretty good. The comedy and the cliff hanger at the end makes me want to watch the next episodes

So far it really has my interest, but it seems as though Oreshura and Haganai NEXT will be my top two rom-com winter animes.
