I found this anime very funny, relatable and entertaining, but I am surprised that none of the previous reviews have mentioned anything bad about it. That is not to say that this is a bad anime. This anime follows the life of fujoshi Kae Serinuma who is more than happy watching the boys around her interact with each other rather than getting involved in a romantic relationship herself. Her love for the various 'ships' that she has created within her school is very funny. In the first episode, Serinuma is overweight, however when one of her favourite anime characters dies, she dissapears from school only to return some time later; slim and beautiful. While this was very comical, and most can relate to the utter loss she feels at the death of her favourite character, I found that the fact she only became a love interest (to some of the characters) after this transformation was somewhat disappointing. Now, I know that the characters reflect back and see their naivety, but I'm sure there will be viewers who get angry at the beginning of the series, and won't watch through until this happens. The characters slowly reflect on what it is that they like about her, that is to say other than her looks, which is good, but how she is portrayed when she is overweight vs. how she is portrayed when she is slim may make some people uncomfortable. Please don't begrudge me for writing this, it is just an opinion, and I just think that there are some people that will base their views of this anime soley on the fact that it suggests 'only skinny people can be attractive'. I enjoyed this anime regardless of this implication, but some people won't. Overall, this anime is undoubtable very funny and I enjoyed it, despite the cringe-worthy moments (so much second-hand embarrassment!) and loved learning about each of the characters, their motivations and backstories.
I love this show so much, but I do have a complaint about it's page on this site. Nishina Shima is listed as a "secondary character" and that makes absolutely no sense if you've seen all the current episodes. Honestly you should be able to figure out that she's one of the main cast just by watching the opening and ending themes. Lumping Nishina in with A-chan is completely ridiculous, considering the vast difference in screen time and involvement in the narrative. A misrepresentation of the cast is something I consider to be important to the community since the information page should be as accurate as possible.
This anime has a great start and it was super funny but after a while the plot got way too repetitive. It is your typical anime of all the guys going for one girl. The ending in my opinion was frustrating but for some it works. I am more of the "official couple" type so this anime just did not give me that kind of satisfaction. If you are looking for a fun anime that isn't serious in plot, this is the anime for you. If you are more like me who prefers couple development, I'm not sure if you will enjoy this.
