There are some stories that when they finished they leave you wanting more because they were just that good. This is not one of those stories. Wow. So the brother shows up, rips the broken glasses off the face of the guy he assaulted, has them fixed but then essentially demands that said guy breaks … Continue reading 3D Kanojo: Real Girl Episode 12: Is That It?
With Teresa's disappearance, Tada finally realises that he fell in love with her. Be prepared for lots of anguished expressions from the usually stoic title character. There's something wrong with Tada. He's not taking photos, he's messing up orders, he's staring blankly at strangers. The usually unshakable character is definitely a little bit off. And … Continue reading Tada Doesn’t Fall in Love Episode 11: Too Late
Well, Tsutsui is finding out this week that just because you want someone to be happy doesn't mean you can achieve it. Right before he gets punched in the face. I'm going to complain about something that doesn't normally come up in my reviews, and that is the number of slightly off-model shots this episode … Continue reading 3D Kanojo: Real Girl Episode 11: Reality Is Not A Rom-Com
Despite the rain clearing this episode, it feels like things have never been more cloudy as Tada and Teresa enjoy their 'date' before Tada gets quite a shock at the end of the episode. Tada Doesn't Fall in Love continues to impress with its fairly reasonable handling of the central two characters. They both respond … Continue reading Tada Doesn’t Fall in Love Episode 10: Prepare For The Heart Break
I think we need a word that means to confess to someone while rejecting someone else. A portmanteau could be conjection or rejessing, though neither one seems quite like it would catch on. Then again, let's hope this kind of scene doesn't catch on. Other than making up new words, I don't have much to … Continue reading 3D Kanojo: Real Girl Episode 10: Is Confessing To One Girl While Rejecting Another Considered To Be In Poor Taste?
Teresa perhaps made anime heroine history when she didn't instantly declared 'It's Not Like That' when Alex called her on being in love with Tada. This anime just continues to be a pretty solid and sweet romance. There's no denying that mini-Teresa and Alex here are adorable and they both grew into fairly beautiful young … Continue reading Tada Doesn’t Fall in Love Episode 9: It Isn’t Not Like That
Let's have the random girl who came midway along confess because there isn't already enough drama in the mix. This anime is sure stretching this current miscommunication crisis for maximum mileage. You know, rather than these two sitting around thinking they are both at fault and having stilted conversations that don't address the problem but … Continue reading 3D Kanojo: Real Girl Episode 9: We Can’t Reconcile Yet, There Are Too Many Episodes To Go
With the club going to photograph stars this week we are prepared for star-crossed lovers to stare wistfully at each other. Problem being, not a lot else happens. This anime has done a lot of things right in building up its characters, particularly its support cast. Yet in is running into the problem of the … Continue reading Tada Doesn’t Fall in Love Episode 8: Love Under the Stars
I'm going to ignore that this anime has descended further into teen melodrama and focus in stead on the fact that 3D Kanojo: Real Girl has taken a step far away from reality by having the girl seething with jealousy over first aid. And it wasn't even mouth to mouth resuscitation for once. Last week … Continue reading 3D Kanojo: Real Girl Episode 8: Writers, Please Understand No One Mistakes First Aid For Romance
This week Tada manages to nail two character moments beautifully once again helping this anime remain feeling like it is just that little bit better than it should be. While the little sister's crush on Yamashita seems to have come out of nowhere (unless I've just utterly and completely missed it in previous episodes), that … Continue reading Tada Doesn’t Fall in Love Episode 7: Capturing the Human Element
