Ehhhh?!? Anime comedy is some of the most laugh-out-loud comedy I've ever seen!
Well, I don't watch any live-action comedy movies either, it's mostly just crude and disgusting humor anymore. With anime, the comedy is all that manic screaming/screeching/yelling/spazzing/jumping around crap. It's so grating and obnoxious. I just don't find that funny whatsoever. And I really hate to see Chibi animation added into the mix, because I dislike cutesy comedy even more.

Dude, that knocks out about 95% of anime straight off the bat!
yep, sure does. That's why I can afford to quadruple dip and import different country releases of the few anime series I do like. I prefer more serious anime, Action, Adventure, Scifi, Fantasy, Mystery, Drama, smaller-sized mech is Ok, and some Romance - I like RomDrams, but I can't watch RomComs. Although, romance in anime is pretty much a joke anyway, as it almost never goes anywhere. I do get tired of all the misunderstandings and uber-shy tropes you get in anime romance.

Wow, that's... very specific! 😅


I totally agree with this bit, though. You said it all there.
Yeah I agree that a lot of anime romance is a bit wishy-washy with the "will they won't they" I also dislike them romance is crammed into a story that doesn't really need it- FMAB did it perfectly having Ed and Winryonly get together in the epilogue and not having it interrupt the storyline where it would have distracted.

It's when something significant happens between the two characters but the writer still refuses to let them progress that I just think "Aaargh! That is not what would happen in real life!"

(Is it? Surely not...)

I'm afraid I wouldn't know.

I'm guessing something like Bubblegum Crash/Crisis is fine. But anything like Gundam, etc. isn't.

Tsuki ga Kirei was pretty good, they got the confession out of the way pretty quickly. Then it went onto the being unsure, etc. But it seemed fairly realistic that people have doubts, especially that young (final year of middle school). I agree that a lot of romance is all shyness and misunderstandings which leaves you shouting at the screen "just tell him/her already!"

I don't think @Girls wIth Guns is telling the whole truth though. I remember he posted about receiving Monthly Girls Nozaki-Kun (rom-com set in a school), he said it was for his mum, buuuut 😜

Lol, Honestly, I did get it for my mum, that tile is probably way out of my comfort zone - it was basically a blind buy, I've only seen the first episode, so I don't have any idea if I myself will care for it at all. I only snatched it up because it was on sale for just $35 on Amazon US, which is half the price of what Sentai or RS ever has it on sale for. Please tell me the romance goes somewhere in that series, without an overload of spastic comedy... :confused:

And I did really like Tsuki ga Kirei - that one will be a definite purchase for me.

Zavvi used a huge box and loads of airbags for Taisho Trilogy, that's a first.

A lot of the comedy comes from the fact that Nozaki-Kun is completely oblivious to the romance part dispite writing romance manga! Some of the comedy is a bit shouty, but it's the funniest anime I've seen. One of the funniest episodes is about dating sims, as a gamer I know a bit about those sorts of games so it might have made it better for me.

I second the notion that this is one of the funniest anime I've seen as well, loved it and desperately want a S2

Ok, well usually when someone says an anime is "a lot of fun" or "it's very funny" then I end up hating it, lol... I really just don't like comedy. I guess we'll find out soon - my mom and the neighbor girl will be visiting Sunday Afternoon to watch the last 3 eps of Gosick and the last 6 eps of "A Town Where you Live," then we'll probably start Nozaki-kun in our next viewing session, most likely by next weekend.
