Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu Anime Review

Not For Me But Not All That Bad You know that feeling you get when you watch something and you know it is fine there’s nothing technically wrong with what it is delivering, but you just aren’t in to it? That’s the feeling I had for the majority of Hitoribocchi’s run. While I was initially … Continue reading Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu Anime Review

Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu Review Episode 12

The End of the Year But Not The Challenge Hitoribocchi Episode 12 The school year ends and Bocchi has a total of 6 friends, plus a new smart phone. You would call that progress only it is one step forward two steps back as she still can’t befriend Kurai, Kai is still not speaking to … Continue reading Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu Review Episode 12

Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu Review Episode 11

Money Can't Solve This Problem Hitoribocchi Episode 11 It seems weird in the penultimate episode to introduce a new character that within one episode grabs Bocchi’s attention and is befriended but at the same time this episode had a lot of heart so despite the weird timing I can’t really fault it. Hitoribocchi does like … Continue reading Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu Review Episode 11

Hitoribocchi no Marumau Seikatsu Review Episode 10

The Student Becomes The Master's Friend Hitoribocchi Episode 10 I kind of knew I was over this series when, in a week where I was tight for time, this was one of the first episodes I just skipped watching with the intention of getting back to it. Now the anime is finished and I’m only … Continue reading Hitoribocchi no Marumau Seikatsu Review Episode 10

Why I’m Enjoying Senryuu Shoujo More Than Hitoribocchi This Spring Anime Season

Friday's Feature

I don't usually directly compare two anime, largely because each anime needs to be viewed on its own merit. Whether the story is similar or a character follows a comparable arc, if an anime is enjoyable in its own right, let it be enjoyable. From that point of view, I'm not going to argue that … Continue reading Why I’m Enjoying Senryuu Shoujo More Than Hitoribocchi This Spring Anime Season

Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Sikatsu Review Episode 9

Curry and Pancakes For Friendship? Hitoribocchi Episode 9 We’re making pancakes and curry (not at the same time) in this episode of Hitoribocchi. Part of me wonders why anyone is actually staying friends with Bocchi given she seems to have absolutely nothing in her head and her first response to any kind of adversity is … Continue reading Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Sikatsu Review Episode 9

Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu Review Episode 8

Another friend quest begun. Episode 8 Bocchi is back at school for the second semester in episode 8 of Hitoribocchi. Most things haven’t changed. She’s still friends with Nako and Aru and the ninja girl is still her apprentice but wants to be friends but doesn’t want to ask. Yet, the contrived goal of this … Continue reading Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu Review Episode 8

Hitoribocchi Review Episode 7

Not quite the summer vacation she's been dreaming of. Episode 7 The summer cliché episode hits us full force as Hitoribocchi ‘dazzles’ us with its less than stellar take on the first summer vacation. Bocchi and her friends decide to hang out and we get a trip to the pool and karaoke with fairly predictable … Continue reading Hitoribocchi Review Episode 7

Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu Review Episodes 5 + 6

Can a charming lead overcome annoying supporting characters? Episode 5 Aru takes the full focus in episode 5 of Hitoribocchi and I’m going to be honest, that was a detriment to my enjoyment. Aru’s unfortunate gag has already run paper thin and this episode just finished it off entirely cementing her as my least favourite … Continue reading Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu Review Episodes 5 + 6

Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu Review Episodes 3 + 4

Everybody has their problems. Episode 3 Yeah, three episodes in and I’m already struggling with this one. Bocchi isn’t exactly a character I can rally behind. In week one her rampant insecurity worked well enough but in episode three it is just this side of obnoxious as she fears her friends will ditch her after … Continue reading Hitoribocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu Review Episodes 3 + 4
