Review

I know I’m extremely late for the party so that’s why I write a spoiler-filled review rather than spoiler-free review. I believe most people in the anime fandom have already watched this massively hyped anime series so why bother writing a spoiler-free review for this anime? And it’s easier for me to discuss. Okay now, let’s go through the anime shall we?

Review

Honestly, I’m quite confused about the primary genre of this anime. At first glance, I thought it was a slice of life anime but when the main character starts to solve mysteries, I was not sure anymore. It’s certainly not a love story though. That’s the thing with this anime. It seems like a slice of life anime but at the same time, it also seems like a mystery anime. My final conclusion is it’s a slice of life anime but with mystery element that I would really recommend others to watch. This is just me though but can’t this anime be more straight-forward about what it’s trying to be? It’s very hard to interpret. I’m not really good at analyzing literature so when my friend asked “Hey, what’s this anime about?”. I don’t know how to answer him correctly. I would simply answer “it’s basically a slice of life anime that has mystery in it,”. I believe that’s the most accurate answer.

How I Become an Anime Fan

As you all probably know, I only started watching anime during late 2012 and I haven’t watched that much anime since then. I know that from 2012 up until now is a long time and I should already have watched a considerable amount of anime. However I actually haven’t watched that much anime because of some reasons that prohibited me from doing so even if I wanted to.

A few years ago during the year 2011, I happened to make new friends as I was transferred to a new school. I am very picky when it comes to choosing friends so I only made very few close friends that I often talked with. Well, I am an introvert after all. Coincidently, these few friends that I made all watched anime. So that was when it all began. Continue reading
