My Senpai is Annoying Review

My Senpai is Annoying Review

Hello all, Today I’ve got a review for My Senpai is Annoying. I’m a sucker for romance anime, and after reading the synopsis, I was all in. I enjoyed shows like Monthly Girl’s Nozaki-Kun and Wotakoi, so watching another anime that is similar felt like a good way to get back to my old watching habits. This review will kind of be on the short side, since there isn’t a ton I could really say about a Slice of Life Rom-Com. I’m not really going to give any actual spoilers from the series, but there were a couple of things that kept the series from being on the level of something like Wotakoi for me. Regardless of that, it was a fun watch, and I’ll go into why that is now.

Art and Design

Let’s start with the art and overall design of everything. I really enjoyed the art style, it suited the series perfectly for the tone it was going for. My early impressions of the art style actually brought up memories of K-On, albeit a much simpler style than what Kyoani had done. The overall animation quality remained smooth and consistent throughout the whole series and never distracted me from the story. While the character designs for the two main characters were unique, they still managed to keep them from feeling out of place in the series. Even though the side characters had a more simplistic style, they remained very memorable throughout.

Story

On to the story, and where my only complaints reside. The problem with watching so many romance anime over the years, is that you start to pick up on common plot lines. This isn’t always a bad thing, but it can definitely get me worried when watching through a series. I wouldn’t say this was a bad thing for this series, since I still really enjoyed the story. I mentioned Nozaki-Kun earlier for a specific reason, and that reason is because this series kind of fell into the same trap. I remember having some issues with how that series wrapped up, and while I don’t completely have the same feeling with this series, there are some similarities. Not to give away any spoilers, I believe this series handled things a bit better. The story as a whole is nothing new, it’s another work place romance with some comedy and little to no drama. Overall I’d say the story lands somewhere between Nozaki-Kun and Wotakoi, it has a very similar feel to Wotakoi in terms of the romance between the side characters, and shares traits from Nozaki-Kun for the main characters romance. I absolutely loved Wotakoi, and the fact that this series sits near that says a lot to me. The series had me laughing and “awing” with each episode I watched. That alone is enough for me to recommend it.

Closing Thoughts

I think this is one of the few anime I’ve reviewed where I didn’t really have anything to say about the music. I guess that’s kind of normal for this style of anime though. Personally, I really enjoyed this anime, it was definitely one that I could sit down and watch to tune out of the real world for a bit. I cherish these kinds of series, it’s the reason I enjoyed series like Lucky Star so much. While action packed anime with lots of plot twists are great, and epic dramas can get your heart racing, it’s nice to just sit back and shut things out once in a while. It really helps balance things out and can really give you a much-needed palette cleanse when you’ve consumed too much of the same types of anime. It’s also great if you’re someone like me who has taken far too long a break from watching anything and needed a light-hearted series to get you back into the swing of things. Overall, I would absolutely recommend this series to anyone looking for something with wholesome romance, or just a slice of life series to escape the everyday world for a bit.

Thanks for reading! I hope you all have a wonderful day!
