TIME OF THE SEASON Winter 2017 Edition: SEIREN

Yup, looking up more stuff and……yes, this is another romance show. Yet the title sounds like a horror title (it’s not) yet the Japanese meaning for it is “Honest”

Yup, this is Seiren.

Plot Summary: Shōichi Kamita is an ordinary high school boy, who is faced with university entrance exams and worries about his future. This campus romantic comedy, “SEIREN” (Seiren means honest in Japanese), depicts his pure relationship with three different heroines. Each story is the unique and mutual memory between him and the heroine.

First Thoughts: So this is the……third romantic anime I’ve checked out this season (and holy shit, I’m actually watching more than one of these) and to be Seiren about it (heh heh), this is the most…..normal out of the three so far and the least annoying from beginning to finish. I have heard another show similar to it called Amagami SS with the same plot of this guy involved with these girls in some parts of his high school life and in here,  it does follow how his relationships with these various girls go and it’s……well, it’s not exactly mind-blowing but something more calm and passive in this drama.

Hell, after the merely OK Fukka and the questionable “if I want to continue this” Masamune-kun’s Revenge, this is more stable.

It’s merely an OK watch but since this was released on CR at MIDNIGHT……I rather catch it in the morning after I wake up.


I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and at least there’s no stupid revenge plot or dumb-ass panty shot moments.

  1. I’m going to check this one out later today but it doesn’t really look like something that is going to grab my interest. Then again, its competition is fairly low this season.
