It's not Haruhi Season 3, but it's still pretty good.

by

The series is set in a similar world to the one of The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya. If you took that world, infused generic rom-com into the very fabric of the universe, and completely cut all canonical connection to the rest of the Haruhi-verse, you'd have the world this one calls its own.

It's not a bad show, despite what many people have said about it. It's an enjoyable, traditional romantic comedy that simply has the cast of The Melancholy. If you go into it expecting Haruhi Season 3, you will be so very disappointed.

I can't stress enough how very average this series is in its "plot", romance, soundtrack, and animation. The only thing outstanding about it, is its amazing cast of characters, which are actually just the same as the Melancholy.

The show will probably only appeal to a small portion of people. If you like romantic comedies, and liked Haruhi for its characters instead of its wacky misadventures, you will love this series.

A 'What If..?' Romance

by

This series was better than I expected; I'd call it a romance with comedy as opposed to a romantic comedy, as the show's humor is more character than situation-driven(some might think I'm hair-splitting--but hey),and the romance aspect isn't taken too casual. At 16 eps + 1 OVA, the series is able to take its time(they spend three episodes with the obligatory hot springs visit,but it's what the story calls for),but isn't overlong. It's great to see what characters are like if they were normal(Asakura especially),or at least more normal,but everyone is recognizable and 'in-character'. The biggest 'flaw' of the series is that it's an unapologetic 'spin-off' ; as good as it is,it cannot be watched and understood if you haven't seen 'Melancholy',and 'The Disappearance of' movie,a shame because I liked it as a romance series as well as a 'spin-off'. Certainly worth watching and quite enjoyable.

A must have in anyone's collection!
