Semantic Error

Computer science major Chu Sangwoo is the epitome of an inflexible and strict rule-abiding person. While working on a liberal arts group project with freeloaders who don’t put in any effort, Sangwoo reasonably decides to remove their names from the final presentation. But he didn’t imagine how involved he would become with the person whose study-abroad plans were messed up because of that project. The involved person: the campus star who everyone knows, Department of Design’s Jang Jaeyoung. He has everything from skills, looks, family background, and good relationships except for 1 big problem: Chu Sangwoo. What happens when an engineer and an artist whose personalities are like oil and water have to work together? Jang Jaeyoung is like a semantic error in the perfect world of Chu Sangwoo. Will Sangwoo be able to debug this?

As a fan of BL, this one didn't desapoint me at all, I really enjoyed the story line and the silences, simple but well made. Story This has to be the worst part of the anime, but still for me it is a 8. It is well written, but it is not easy to understand a few things sometimes; maybe for those who read the manga it was simpler to understand the whole relationship, but for me I felt there were a few gaps of information between one episode to the other. Anyway this wasn't a problem, I actually enjoyed that the narrative was very daily life based, you almost don't need to watch the episodes in sequence, as the anime is almost an anthology series; and the way they created the narrative actually made me more intrigued to find out what was happening then to get lost and bored. I also relly liked all the silences they created between the characters and their dialogues, and how both character's grew during the episodes. And their romance is just too cute <3 Animation It is very similar to other Korean BL animes, and I like it. As I always feel, the smoothy and clear colors and scenarios are in synchrony with the calm, daily and comforting narrative, creating an extremely tender and passionate universe. Sound Overall I liked it, it wasn't that much memorable but also it didn't interfer in a bad way the animation, so that's good. The ambient sounds though were good. Characters Both characters were well represented and though I could feel a bit more proximity to Sangwoo, Jaeyoung also got a warm space in my heart. In the beginning, I was afraid Sangwoo would have a bad path, turning to be one more archetype of a shy and submissive character, but happily that didn't happen! He knew what he wanted, and when he wanted to say yes or no, even with his introvert personality; I enjoyed seeing his grownth. As for Jaeyoung I was also afraid of archetype, of him being just a good looking plain socially perfect character; but again the anime surprised me! He became more and more someone who really wanted to make Sangwoo feel good, just as much as making their relationship work. Overall As a short anime that didn't gave us much of the character's background, nor much depth on their narrative during the animation, I finished it feeling I needed more; but the thing is, I think I don't need more meaning, nor more depht to the past, I just wanted to have more of that warmth I felt watching them both together.
