Seeing as the series is only halfway through, this review could be premature. However, I've thoroughly enjoyed the six episodes of this series. The characters aren't stiff or cliche. They're dynamic, interesting, and hilarious. The comedy lands every time and, even when it's not trying to be funny, it can still produce a little laughter, always for the right reasons. The narration attributes to the story in a way that isn't monotonous, unnecessary, or irritating. This anime is so brilliantly written in the aspect of its comedic timing, development of characters and relationships, and the entertaining mind games played between Shinomiya and Shirogane. Chika could be construed as the token "stupid, big-boobed extra," but she's only one of those things. She may not have the high intelligence that Shinomiya and Shirogane possess, but she's definitely not a dope. She was able to emotionally manipulate Shinomiya during the word game in order to win. She adds to the story in a positive and entertaining way instead of the usual annoying side character that adds no true value to the story or main characters and is purely to fill the obligatory "best friend" role. Overall, this anime is incredibly entertaining with golden comedy, well-developed and interesting characters, and a story that leaves you wishing the episodes were longer than thirty minutes. This is truly the most refreshing romance anime I've seen in a while.
Let me start off by saying that I usually don't watch this genre. However, I've thoroughly enjoyed this and I would recommend it to anyone looking for something funny, lighthearted and cute. In terms of story this anime doesn't have much to offer. A girl and a boy like each other, neither wants to admit it but keeps trying to get the other party to do that, which of course, rarely gets them anywhere. Throw in some comic relief characters and a few stories and you'll get Love is War. Animation was pretty consistent and the anime looks great. The ending sequence in the third episode (infamous Chika dance) is amazingly well animated and that alone makes it worth watching. Voice acting was great, sound effects suit the situations well. OP theme is pretty catchy too. Characters were interesting, I liked how the second half of the season gives them some depth. Kaguya's story is pretty interesting, and we actually get to see why she acts the way she does. I really hope this gets a second season because it's one of those shows that you can just binge and relax and laugh to, without worrying about complicated plot lines.
Certainly one of the best romantic comedy! This series was just pure perfection .From animations to storytelling along with the overall interesting characters this show was like a fresh breath of air among all trash animes.Also each episode seemed to be more and more interesting than the previous one which is rare now a days. Overall 10/10
