The comedy was real, the shipping was real and the FEELS. WERE. REAL! I’m normally that person obsessing over horror and gore and suspense and action but damn that was good. It was hilarious in all the right places and had the right amount of adult humour to make it extra enjoyable. I forgot how much I enjoyed slice of life sometimes. The animation was phenomenal, the plot was executed perfectly and wow just…watch it! It’ll make you laugh, cry and punch walls when there’s about to be romance. If it’s 1am in the morning? You’ll be unable to sleep you’ll be laughing at jokes your friends won’t get in the morning. It’s not normally my thing but that was awesome. Recommended!
Scarred by 8th grade syndrome, Yuta is determined to make a good impression in his new school. However, Rikka knows about the ‘Dark Flame Master’ s past and wants to become his apprentice. Club season is the best time to bribe anyone (as demonstrated throughout many anime) and Yuta makes a deal to host the long-named club so long as Rikka is quiet about his ex-identity. After accepting Rikka, as delusional as she may be, Yuta discovers that Rikka’s father died a couple of years before. She appears to think her father can be found in the ethereal horizon. Faced with reality and fantasy, both Rikka and Yuta overcome the barrier between childhood and adulthood in the most funny, romantic, devastating ways possible.
