This was truly an amazing anime. It beautifully portrays the hardships of students during their entrance exams and how the main character, Yaguchi, tries to overcome those obstacles. The only downsides were the Ryuji's character which was completely unnecessary for this kind of theme and the side character development was a bit low. Overall the plot was pretty realistic (as much as a "Shounen Anime" can get) and entertaining to watch.


Unfortunately a rather lackluster adaptation. It has no where the same level of intensity as the manga and doesn't create the same emotional response as reading the manga, will have to drop the anime and just read the superior manga.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me πŸ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter πŸ™ˆ

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
