A funny school romantic comedy that’s among the list of funniest anime I have watched in a superb while, even though it does slip up a bit towards the end. Welcome to my very first anime review. You can also read another anime review free in other great websites such as MyAnimeList, AnimeNewsNetwork, or AnimeBibly.
Basically, it is some sort of comedy where all sorts of things can be so overblown and foolish that the watcher is never meant to bring it seriously. Going on an over-the-top series of comedy glitches and overstated reactions, the main character manages to convince themselves their video game loving buddy group can be a complex web of love triangles, while in truth of the matter there are only two non-competing lovers. The anime does this for the first half of the show and it is humorous gold.
Sorry to say, in the other half the anime made the error of starting to take itself seriously and the quality falls a little bit. A true love triangle grows, a pointless character is presented, and there’s a smaller amount comedy to go around. The ending theme is even switched for a several episodes, with even more melodramatic music and imagery. Gamers! Do not ever fall altogether into a dramatic series, but it surely remained a farce. To best it all off, the last episode can be a filler spa episode focusing on a dialogue about DLC and fan-service that gets severely ramped up in a series that is in any other case really tame in that section. The anime should have stuck with humorous all the way up, that is its best asset.
The animation can be a flat 5 here. It does precisely what it requires to do, lack the major problems, and feels nice more than enough, but I can’t see single thing it does abnormally well.
This is a Japanese dub series completely. Comedy is exactly so much better if you are a native language, along with the voice actors do quite nicely offering the ridiculous, overstated feelings and rapid-fire conversation needed for a superb farce. I haven’t laughed out loud in a while at anime, and this anime did the secret sauce to me.
The soundtrack is okay, along with the opening theme being so catchy and cheerful bit of pop song, but I truly can’t keep in mind a single piece of music that played over the show.
Real people don’t take action remotely this way. I can sympathize with choosing foolish over-analysis of a romantic circumstance only to draw the inappropriate final result, but it is a great deal played up for rule-of-funny. The cast plays up their stereotypes hilariously, the simple, wishy-washy protagonist, the lovely school idol hiding an otaku secret, the cocky schemer whose plans always backfire on him, etc. The massive error shows up in the last half of the anime where the story attempts to make these loons work in a position that is slightly too serious for them to overcome well.
I really appreciated and enjoyed this lunatic farce of a romantic comedy. I just want it had remained that way to the end. As it is, the moderate tone change took Gamers! from awesome to nice.
