>this reminds me a lot of that Nozaki-kun anime
It's funny you mention that, because some of the team behind Nozaki-kun are actually making an entirely different anime this season, that has nothing to do with this.
Also, "a few seasons back" in this case is almost four years ago. Time flies, eh?
Time flies when you were a NEET for most of that time.
I really liked this show at first, but now I feel like it's just another romantic comedy.
Was it always that way, and the hype just wore off?
What the fuck we had a thread for this show?>>26156
I think it was always a romcom, just that early on the twist was twisty enough it wasn't easily recognizable. I mean, just look at the title - how could it be anything but a romcom?
I always knew it was a romcom; I guess what I'm saying is I expected the otaku angle to be more than window-dressing for a pretty conventional series.
Oh I see what you mean
Well to be honest we had something similar-ish with the Net-juu no Susume or whatever it was called a few seasons ago and it ended up the same thing really. It can't be more than window dressing I supposed because it's meant to be some sort of abstract reverse wish fulfillment, letting people see themselves as successful and whatever and still managing to hide their powerlevel. I don't know.
