Kiss Him, Not Me Series Review

Overview: Kae Serinuma is an overweight girl who likes pairing guys together but when her favourite anime character dies she gets depressed, loses weight, and then a whole bunch of guys want to date her. I reviewed this while it was airing and my week to week thoughts on this series can be found here. … Continue reading Kiss Him, Not Me Series Review

Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 12

Review: This one I am happy to see to see finish. I'm going to take the positive from this series. She didn't change. Her fundamental character stayed completely stagnant so at least it isn't one of those stories where the girl utterly transforms herself because of the guy/s in her life. Of course, that means … Continue reading Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 12

Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 11

Review: Same as last week, other than a general issue with a student teacher attempting to pick up a student and using generally questionable methods, the episode was kind of fun.  I really enjoyed the interactions between the brothers and how they solved their conflict through a card match. This episode also ended with an … Continue reading Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 11

Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 10

Review: Leaving aside the creepy student/teacher relations issue that I regularly have with anime in general, Kiss Him, Not Me actually delivered a somewhat sweet episode this week. Not surprisingly that was because the focus shifted to Matsumi who has so far been the only reasonable choice of all the guys in the show. The … Continue reading Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 10

Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 9

Review: This episode of Kiss Him, Not Me at least avoided making me actively question how it is choosing to portray romance this week but that's pretty much only because we first shifted the scene to a beach episode (because who doesn't love those) and the focus this week shifted to Shinomiya who has so … Continue reading Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 9

Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 8

Review: Just when I think I'm over the basic faults in Kiss Him, Not Me's premise we get an episode like this. Nanashima essentially assaults Kae because he has 'a fever' and then apologizes profusely but Kae is a little bit traumatized (from both the kiss and the realisation she couldn't stop him from holding … Continue reading Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 8

Autumn 2016 Week 8

Well, the end of week 8 and that week sure was something. Not really sure what I expected but some of these episodes really didn't deliver (in both good and bad ways). Some shows clearly demonstrated they were ramping things up while others feel a little bit lost. All and all though, I'm still enjoying … Continue reading Autumn 2016 Week 8

Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 7

Review: Well, most of you already know how I feel about near drowning incidents in anime. Fortunately I don't take this show very seriously so even though I wasn't particularly happy, I got through that part of the episode and then proceeded to wonder when the show became Scooby Doo. Honestly, between the truly hard … Continue reading Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 7

Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 5

Review: Kiss Him, Not Me had a Valentine episode. How sweet. Well, at least the objective wasn't to make chocolate for the boys and it was to make it for a competition. That part of the episode was actually quite reasonable and I kind of liked Shima by the end of that section when she … Continue reading Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 5

Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 4

Review: I have to wonder at this point how long the boys are going to just allow themselves to be dragged around. No matter how cute Kae is after losing weight (an issue in and of itself), the fact that these boys will apparently put up with anything in order to stay around her is … Continue reading Kiss Him, Not Me Episode 4
