I am a horrible human being.
Sometimes how I respond to an anime is all I need to remind myself of this. For instance, I spent the entire run of Ore Monogatari!! (My Love Story) worried that I wasn’t going to entertained enough because there was no way having the main couple stay together through the run of the series was going to be provide enough story and tension to fill up a two cour series. Yes, I’d feel twinges of guilt whenever I wish something “dramatic” would happen between Takeo and Rinko but that didn’t stop me wishing it at least once a week during the airing of Ore Monogatari!!. That I was proven wrong – that it was possible to construct a romantic comedy series where the main couple got together at the beginning and was largely drama free – was one of the good highlights of the year.
