  • 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 ...

    Rating: C

    Going into this I was looking for some adorable little slice of life/romcom anime that would surely have me laughing. Boy was I surprised when the first 10 minutes are some of the most depressing I've seen in any anime so far. But I was starting to really get into it, I thought to myself; ...

    Just make it past the first twelve minutes of episode 1.
    Honestly speaking, the first twelve minutes of episode one felt extremely exaggerated and melodramatic to me. The main character's backstory is tragic to the point that a person would need a pretty extravagant willing suspension of disbelief in order to buy into it. However, if you can endure that, then you're in for some pretty smooth sailing.

    I've watched up until episode five so far. There ...

    From an Anime Ancient
    After so much time and after so much Anime, this has to be one of the best Slice of Life I have seen even within the last 7 years, in my opinion it sets a new bar-height with its constant "FEELS" moments and out-there love scenario which I can only hope is carried on in the next season.

  • 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)
