    A brilliant anime with a very different art style and presentation. The story, as it were, is narrated to us by the nameless protagonist, as he agonises over how to pursue his "ideal campus life". Along the way he meets several other unusual characters, including his demonic-looking partner-in-crime Ozu and the mysterious Akashi, both of whom he seems to share a strange link with. One complaint some people have with the series is that the narration from the protagonist is very fast and it's very difficult to read the subtitles in time. Whilst the dialogue is indeed quick, it is possible to keep up if you concentrate enough. Even if you find yourself needing to pause occasionally to digest a particularly verbose line, I would still absolutely recommend everyone give this series a go. Amongst a myriad of other, more "standard" anime, this one definitely stands out.


    (This review is to be read at 2x the speed you would normally read something) A story about overambition, appreciating that which you take for granted, enjoying your youth while it lasts, the futility of lamenting lost opportunity, the importance of close friends, the dangers of arrogance, and the merit of self-confidence, all told in perhaps the most roundabout and confusing fucking way possible. Sometimes it feels like it's frustratingly running around in circles while the answer is right there from the beginning, but if that isn't university life in a nutshell I don't know what is.


    Very different and amusing with a unique style to it.


    Really good, best art/music I've seen/heard in an anime. I understand why so many people liked this.

    About Me

    I am Sophie and this is my website.

    A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ 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 (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™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 donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

    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!
