Oct. 4th, 2017 @ 07:18 pm An a-typical high school romance series
Current Mood: okayokay

We’ve finished watching Ore Monogatari!! (which translates to ‘My story!!’). It’s a high school romance. The main characters are the gentle giant Takeo and the petite (and unfortunately, squeaky-voiced) Yamato, and their romance. The oddly matched pair obviously love each other, and that’s that.
And most high school romances then start messing with the relationship: one or both lovers are manipulated by jealous others, misunderstandings grow into real problems, family interferes, or whatever. It’s like a relationship shouldn’t work out because you need drama to keep your audience engaged, right? But OreMono proves that you do not need to mess with the couple to create an engaging series. Whatever happens, the feelings these two have for each other are genuine and unshakeable, and nothing that happens can ever shake that. Most of the people close to the couple are very supportive, maybe because it’s so obvious the two really love each other.
That doesn’t mean the series is boring — each and every of the 25 episodes is interesting and funny! But every plot gets resolved in at most two episodes, which means it’s always fresh. And every episode had us laughing by some funny situation as well.

If you like the genre, then you will really like it.

I simply can't keep up with everything I would like to see. I haven't managed to watch the first four episodes of a series I like, so I will have to give that one up.

For some reason I'm watching more documentary series at the moment, but they don't matter if I miss one.

Isn't that the problem? Every new season we watch every first episode of the new anime series, and then collect the ones that interest us. But even with us watching (at least) two episodes every evening (and a lot more in the weekends), and still the series keep piling up!
On the other hand, having some choice on what to watch next is good as well.
