Ratings & Reviews
Excellent Anime with a Misleading Description of the Plot's Theme
by XB -
Do not let the title or the description for the anime fool you: This is not an imouto anime and the teaser ending the package description is flat-out incorrect. Or, more accurately, it is tangential to the plot of the series. Rather, this is slice-of-life done right: The cast of characters are genuinely funny, endearing, likeable, and believable. This is an anime about burgeoning light novel authors that is not Eromanga Sensei where the authors and illustrators are in middle school, academic, and running the home while their parents are away overseas for a negligent period of time. These are college-aged and adult characters who became authors by devoting themselves myopically to writing at the expense of anything else during their formative years and are just experiencing burgeoning success. This success of the protagonists and its effects on the secondary characters drives the plot of the anime and provides genuine and refreshing character development. This is a worthwhile purchase.
a fundamentally flawed concept
It's a slice of life anime that has disguised itself as a siscon romcom. The major characters are deeply flawed and or broken light novel authors at the beginning of their careers. If this were a real romcom or drama it would have fertile ground for story telling, character growth and development, romance and drama, and adventures as young adults sipping their first tastes of success in business. But no, this is a slice of life, which means all of the most interesting aspects of the characters are left undeveloped. The characters at the end of the show are almost exactly the same as they are at the start. Why should we watch these broken caricatures lounge, eat, and play card games? It's a one star show that gets an extra star for the large amounts of fan service and funi's good dub. It's left open for another season and that might be able to turn things around but as it stands this just doesn't work.
