Started My Teen Romantic Comedy Snafu

The story follows two loners: the pragmatic Hachiman Hikigaya and beautiful Yukino Yukinoshita, who, despite their varying personalities and ideals, offer help and advice to others as part of their school's Service Club, assisted by the cheerful and friendly Yui Yuigahama. It largely depicts various social situations faced by teens in a high school setting and the psychology driving their interactions.

I think School set rom-coms are my favourite genre when they are done well. This one kind of suffers from its title, which might be a bit unfair - but fact is that other animes do the teen rom-com better like Toradora! or Love, Chunibyo, Nisekoi - Familiar of Zero, Full Metal Panic FFUMOFU etc.

It's still decent and has a few laugh out loud moments. I wonder if it will build to something more enjoyable.

I watched the first episode of One-Punch Man. It premiered on Adult Swim/Toonami last night.

I'm also still watching Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans and Hunter X Hunter.

In Hunter X Hunter they just finished the maze part of the Hunter Exams.

I finished up to the end of ep13 and it was pretty good overal TBH. Still not as good as other examples of school rom-coms but still enjoyable on its own.

Awesome. You have no idea what awaits you. The final 10 or so episodes are just.... so good.

When you get near the end try and watch it in 3 episode blocks at a time. Breaking it up only watching 1 is no good. Especially for the final few.

I also watched Sakamoto Desu Ga. Pretty fun school animu about a dude who does everything perfectly and in the coolest possible way. It's 12 episodes so easy to binge watch it, and pretty laid back and fun, like I like my school animu.

That looks fun.

A lot of stuff doesn't get released here. I've kinda given up on using my laptop to plug into the tv for anime. Can't be assed hooking it up and draining the battery. Should use the U I guess. Can't bring myself to give up netflix for crunchy. I want Funimation app.

They finished that tower. They narrator said that the next challenge would be a brutal fight between the applicants.

I see.

End of the trials is near. And everything you watched is pretty much just the intro. The series kicks off after the trials end. Can't you watch this on netflix?

I'm not sure if it is on Netflix. I haven't been on Netflix since April.

Last time I checked it wasn't. If it was it has to be the English dub because I can't read subtitles fast enough.
