What happens when a science-inclined girl and boy who are deeply passionate about research fall in love? An intelligent woman named Himuro Ayame who is a science graduate student at Saitama University happens to ask fellow science grad student Yukimura Shinya out. Of course, there’s no logical reason for this love! But as a science and engineering major, not being able to logically prove love would mean that those feelings aren’t real, and they’d fail as a science student. With that in mind, the two drag everyone else in the lab into trying various experiments to prove love actually exists.
To be honest, this might not be bad if you're into love stories and if you don't care about if they are realistic about main things (like science and school). But for me, I found this to be a bit boring. The overall story is OK, but you can see what will happen a mile away. The "science" behind things is OK, but amature hour. Like if they were 3rd graders then OK. But they are trying to measure love. Well, there has already been studies in this. They never get into what love really is and how to measure it. In the real world, our brains use dopamine as a reward chemical. Over time what causes it has to be increased in order to keep the feel good feeling going on. But what has been found is just by showing a picture of someone that you love, your dopamine levels increase. This even happens in dogs. Then you have brain activity which shows it, tolerance of their faults, and so on. They are trying to measure if you love someones by heart level, temp, and other things like that. Things that a virus can produce, or some other thing like childhood trama. I mean this isn't a bad show to teach someone the basics of science. Like how to make a theory, testing it, and so on. But it doesn't really cover that in detail, and I have my doubts that the majority who are into romance anime will care deeply about that in the first place.
Instantly became one of my favorites The only surreal aspect is the huge amount of sleep these graduates had. As a science-type myself, I must say that I really enjoyed every part of it. The characters can be relatable to fellow nerds at times and are overall likable. As great as the plot and characters are, it's also educational and the parts with little explanations kept one interested in data science as in standard knowledge in mathematics, physics and biology.
This anime was really interesting - I've never really seen a concept like this, so it was extremely fun to watch. Both of the main characters were adorable (like seriously, Himuro's ponytail wagging was so cute--), and even the side characters had lovable personalities. Story-wise, it flowed well, with only problem being that sometimes the interruptions by the bear, as well as the long-winded explanations of random theories that popped up, got a little boring at times. However - the ending was extremely satisfying, the little moments of comedy throughout the plot were entertaining, and I surprisingly learnt a lot about science and maths watching this. I feel kinda smarter...somehow. Even though I procrastinated on homework to watch this. But hey, at least now I can tell my parents that I learnt about the Riemann Hypothesis - from an anime, no less!
