  • Short Review - What to expect from Kotoura-San
    Just as a buffer for what is to be expected. While the first half of the first episode conditions you for dark plot/subplot, don't think of it as that. This anime quickly devolves into the same old thing where friendship trumps all and completely dismisses most underlying darkness a few episodes in. Knowing that it became this perfect world, you could very easily know everything that was going to ...

  • Cute supernatural romantic comedy, but not memorable
    I screened quite a bit of anime a few months ago and when I was catching up with backlog of reviewing, I almost forgot that I watched this one, or what it was about. Not a good sign.

    However after refreshing my memory I do remember mostly enjoying this show. I liked the title character and the short sempai but don't remember anything about the other characters except that the lead guy would ...

  • Actually depicts the hardships that mindreading would entail
    This is fun and cute. But surprisingly, it gives a very "realistic" view of what "normal" life would be like for someone who (unfortunately) can read minds. Some always disbelieve, some are scared/hateful, some want to take advantage, and some love you for who you are in spite of it. You feel both the loneliness and the joy.

  • Uncomplicated romantic comedy
    This is a really solid product. A short, sweet and simple romantic comedy! Characters are interesting but not ground-breaking, but there are laughs to be had and gorgeous animation to ooh & ahh over - and a nice sprinkle of the occult. What's not to like?

  • A Very Unique Twist to Romantic Comedy
    Kotoura-san is legendary in my books for being the ultimate cerebus rollercoaster. A single episode will contain at least 5 sudden changes of mood, with the time in between the shifts in mood ranging from anywhere between 5 seconds and 10 minutes. And the worst part about such dramatic and erratic shifts in mood? It's totally unpredictable. Even the most genre-savvy of viewers will have serious ...

  • Good Laughs Mostly:)
    I won't spoil the plot for anybody, but I do guarantee that this anime will make you laugh and might make some of you cry. It's very lighthearted for the most part and I thoroughly enjoyed it. However, there was one section I felt wasn't needed, but I'll let you figure that one out. (It's just my opinion)

  • All aboard the feels-train!
    Ahhh what to even say about this anime that hasn't been said before! It's not something I would generally pick, especially with the art-style of the animation. I stray away usually from chibi-style characters, but this anime was the perfect mix of sad and funny - and complete weirdness at times and the animation style fit perfectly. The story completely wraps itself up in 12 episodes leaving no ...

  • Made me almost cry . . . almost.
    I love an anime where the hero/heroin suffers. It can go only two ways; she copes with her personal problems and moves on OR she falls in a crevice of despair and shut everyone out. This anime will tug your heart strings, tears may fall, and your gonna laugh too. I give 4 out of five because the short dude is totally out of proportion to the other characters and it annoys me.

  • All kinds of adorable
    Seriously, if you're looking for a romcom that is funny, adorable, cute, but occasionally serious, this is definitely a good choice. The relationships developed in this show are very unique. The tension in the show is nice as well. My favorite character is the grandpa =)
