  • 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)

    Better than what my rating would suggest - but I simply couldn't take the constant mood whiplash
    I'm sure everyone encountered the X-Men franchise in some shape or form. One of its main themes is how having special powers can make it hard or near impossible for someone to live a normal life, how each day can be a constant fight against other people's distrust and preconceptions. Unfortunately for the titular heroine, Haruka Kotoura, the Xavier Institute apparently does not exist in her world, ...

    More Than Satisfying
    this anime had me hooked from the first episode. It is the only anime that has made me cry within the first 20 minutes of watching. As much as i would like a second season, it's ending was very satisfying, and it seems that anything more would simply be a spin-off, therefore taking away from the luster of this show. Over all a very well written show and much deserving of the five stars in this ...

  • 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.
