Of all the anime released so far this year, Wotaku Ni Koi Wa Muzukashii (Love is Hard for an Otaku) or Wotakoi for short, is still one of the most highly praised new series of 2018
2018 has so far been plentiful when it comes to anime with new titles rapidly becoming season favourites and convincing adaptations swaying the most stubborn of fans. This summer promises to be just as exciting with a few new releases already under the spotlight. With first episodes freshly aired, are they really as appealing as they’ve been made out to be?
With Koi Wa Ameagari No You Ni (After the Rain), Wit Animation Studios has taken Jun Maryuki’s sweet little romance manga to a whole new level, filling it to the brim with vibrant colours, poetic imagery and skilfully animated choreography leaving it bursting with life and something resembling magic.
From loud bratty children to soft squishy cheeks; snotty snub noses versus wet puppy dog eyes; tragic circumstance made inspirational; growing others to growing up yourself. Anywhere from mild irritation to cheerful happy smiles, slice of life anime adaptation Gakuen Babysitters (School Babysitters) knows how to push our buttons.
