A good Slice of Life with a decent story line. Every episode was more or less the same but you'll enjoy it if you go at a slower pace. Every character was well created and each of them create an unique vibe, Renge's being the best; Obviously. Although it has a soothing vibe, but if you're not into 'Slice of Life' then I won't recommend you to watch it.


Get ready, my friends. The second season starts in a couple of weeks! Are you ready for more Nyanpassu~?! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eAy3Syy0DSA


A really enjoyable "cute girls doing cute things" slice of life series. I dunno what it is about this one that rates it so highly for me. They just get it all right. The girls are all very likeable, especially Ren-chon, she's just adorable. The series does a very good job at just mellowing you out. Some beautiful scenic shots and a relaxing pace to the whole thing. And the comedy moments are funny and charming. Definitely recommended for fans of the genre. And a second season has been confirmed! Oh yes. http://i.imgur.com/GAUP3pr.jpg This sums up the chill factor pretty well. The first episode opens with this beautiful piece: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iYEaitHu1T4

A little about me 👋 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 🙈

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!
