Welcome to Anime Review #70. The anime this week is Gamers!
Jul. 13th, 2017 ~ Sep. 28th, 2017 (Summer 2017)
Keita Amano is a typical high school gamer living out an average student’s life. One day, however, he has an unexpected meeting with the cutest girl in school that makes him want to disappear without a trace!
This girl, Karen Tendou, is an exemplary student who is proclaimed to be the school’s idol. She discovers that Amano is a gamer, and this newfound knowledge incites a passionate desire within her to recruit him into the game club. Upon visiting the club, Amano is forcefully made aware of a side to gaming wildly different than the one he loves so dearly.
Tendou’s interest in Amano begins shaking up what was once an uneventful life, filling it with spontaneity, awkwardness, and a little bit of mayhem. As a result, every day becomes a comical battle for Amano’s sanity as he tries to adapt to these wild, unexpected changes.
After re-watching this anime I have some mixed feelings compared to the first watch. Don’t get me wrong the anime is pretty decent, but it can be a bit tedious over the fact it’s more involved with romance than what the title entails to. I mean yeah there is gaming involved, but initially I thought it would play a bigger picture. Mostly it’s just a typical romantic comedy and you’re just nail biting at who is best for the protagonist.
If that’s something you’re into then I would recommend this for sure, but if you were looking for a fantasy feel then I would steer clear. Even so it’s still not that half bad once you give it a watch. It may make you laugh here and there or it might cringe at the cliché of it all.
Anyways I hope this was a helpful review and if you decide to give it a watch then share some insight on the comments below!
1 Season ~ 12 Episodes
