This entry is about an episode, and specifically about three minutes within it, where I’ve almost been defeated by an anime. I’ve never actually stopped watching an anime series in the middle of an episode, but this season I came so very close to it.
On the the 4th of October, I’ve watched the first episode of Yuushibu, and 50 seconds in I almost wanted to quit. It was bad, but the last few minutes picked up, but were still nothing special. I dropped the show, and thought this was the worst episode I’ve tried this season. And then came October 9th, and I’ve given a try to NouCome, or “My Mental Choices Are Completely Interfering With My School Romantic Comedy” (“Ore no Nounai Sentakushi ga, Gakuen Love Comedy wo Zenryoku de Jama Shiteiru” is the full Japanese title. Like Yuushibu, once the name is long enough apparently you can’t take the show seriously), and just blew Yuushibu completely out of the water in terms of how terrible it’s been.
