Anime review: Wotakoi: Love is hard for Otaku

And here I am again! This time, I have a review!! Yayyyyy. So those who have followed the anime season of Spring 2018, will probably know or have heard of this one. It’s originally from a manga, which is currently on a stop probably because of a lack of requests or staff? I don’t know, I’m just thinking of possibilities. Or maybe official translation to English is happening? Maybe there aren’t any chapters left to translate (which I don’t believe, to be honest) Well, anyways, I don’t really know the reason. So let’s continue and go to the next part!

 

Synopsys

After discovering that they work at the same company, a gaming crazed otaku and a fujoshi reunite for the first time since middle school. After some post-work drinking sessions they begin dating, but will it be a perfect relationship for the two of them?

So once again I copy pasted the synopsis because it’s a bit late and I’m still a bit short on time to make my own. Next week I have a lot of free time, so I’ll try next time if I find a good manga for it. So the concept is really nice, because it’s very relatable. I think the newest trend of manga in Japan is actually relatable stuff. For us, those who watch anime and manga, this kind of situation can be very relatable. Though I am not an adult (when I type it but who knows how long this site will exist), I at least see some things that are very relatable and pretty much realistic in a comedic manner. So it’s original I think. Well, the otaku stuff, there are manga’s who has that as focus, but not in the life of adults I think. The story, there is slow plot development, but they’re mostly only episodic, so it is like a short story. Though there are flashbacks, it’s still chronological when they’re adults. It’s not complicated and really for the means to amuse. The manga and the anime are I think exactly the same because it’s a very modern manga. I quite like it, but the only art-style I don’t like are mostly of shounen manga. That’s also a reason I don’t read it often. But I think it was nicely done, the voice actors did it very well and it really fitted all of the characters. All in all, it’s a comedic-relatable story, which many can nod their heads with or maybe there are some like me who would think it is fantastic to have such a group hanging around somewhere. The romantic things are definitely there, but it is like to complete the setting instead of mainly focusing on it. I’ll give it a 9/10, because I liked it, but comedy is not really my favourite genre, which is why I won’t give it higher than that.

 

Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed it and see you next time!
