Aoi Tokura is having a rough day. He’s used to being mistaken for a girl, but it’s even worse when a captivating stranger on the train calls him a creeper for staring a little too long. Aoi’s soaked by a sudden rainstorm and takes shelter at Rainy Color, a cozy café where the warmth of the staff compliments the sweet hot cocoa he’s served. When he falls into a job at the café he feels like things are finally looking up— until Keiichi Iwase, the man he couldn’t help but stare at on the train, shows up. Did this day just get worse, or better?
Rainy Cocoa isn't something to get obsessed over. It's not something where you count down the days and hours 'til the next installment. It's not unlike a real cafe -- you can drop in for a short time, semi-regularly if you choose. You can develop a familiarity with the comings and goings of the regulars there even if you forget their names or what they did last week. You aren't really meant to extend your visit too long. It's just a nice and comfortable place to pause before going on with the rest of your day. Rainy Cocoa doesn't aspire to great heights, but that's alright, it doesn't need to. It's a nice, friendly, quick-hit smile. I'm not sure how much longer it will go on (11 have aired at the time of this review), but I'll keep stopping by for a sip when I happen to notice a new installment available.
When I first saw the image for this anime, I thought "Hey, it looks pretty cool. Kind of cheesy-looking, but still kind of cool." Read the bio, got a little more excited. However, all signs turned from cool to "meh" within the first episode. This anime isn't really anything special, to be honest. There really isn't that interesting of a plot, no hook or gimmick to reel you in. The animation is pretty bad honestly, below average. What made me laugh the most throughout the series was not the characters or conversations, but how badly animated Shion (the guy with the light-brown hair) was the entire time. The characters were not anything special either, and I honestly have nothing to say about them either. Maybe this series would've been better if each episode wasn't two minutes long (more like 1min30sec because of the pointless opening.) But I speculate that they couldn't make it longer because it could be based off one of those four-panel mangas and/or it's not that far along in serialization. If it lived up to its bio, the way it sounded cool, I would've enjoyed it more. If you're planning on watching this, I would recommend it mostly if you're killing time or boredom. Sorry, but it's the truth~
Im really confused...I read the bio and "Im lik oh it seems like a twist on the whole 'work life' thing with the whole guy-mistaken-for-girl deal, maybe it will have a cute gay ship or something" However, each "episode" is 2 minutes including the 30 second intro. I skipped the first "episode" all together cause I thought it was just like a trailer or something... Anyways I really liked the idea from what I read on the bio and i would have loved to have seen it played out but what I watched was kind of dissapointing. Anyway I dont recommend it but if you want to see what will happen dont worry I should take less time than a regular episode +please excuse spelling error I cant spell, sorry
