(This review covers both seasons of Amagami, so SS and SS+)
Amagami SS is actually an anime adaptation of the PS2 dating sim called "Amagami" (meaning playful/gentle bite), and it shows when you are watching it. What I mean by that is the show has a very VN-esque storyline. Instead of a central story, Amagami SS(+) goes into "arcs" which follows the life of the MC as he deals with 1 of 6 different girls. These Arcs last around 4 episodes each, and at the end of the arc, time resets, and he goes after a different girl. At first this setup seems weird, but for me it was actually really enjoyable.
I can say with honesty that while Amagami SS isn't the best romance anime around, it is definitely a noteworthy one. I liked every girl for different reasons, and the end of each arc (except 1, but that gets fixed during the second season) was very satisfying. There was never a moment where I didn't enjoy the show, and after finishing the series, I can say that it also never disappointed. It even made me laugh a lot of times, which few romance shows are capable of doing. So that's a plus.... Get it? no...? :(
In a Nutshell: a great series to watch when you have nothing else to occupy your time. If you go into it with an open mind, you'll be surprised at how much you enjoyed yourself.
Final Verdict: 7.5/10
Just a cute show that's not meant to be taken "too" seriously. Watch it and have a laugh or two.
