Time of the SEASON Spring 2021 Edition: KOIKIMO

I heard not so good things about this show. My first instinct is mostly curiosity…. and by that, I mean late curiosity. It’s been a few days since the first episode aired and I’m covering this now.

And judging by the first episode….. well….

This is Koikimo.

Plot Summary: Ryō Amakusa is a sex-crazed but highly eligible bachelor with a wandering eye for women. Ichika Arima is an ordinary otaku high school girl who is close friends with Ryō’s little sister Rio. Ryō and Ichika meet by chance one day, but Ryō’s direct approach — asking Ichika for a kiss and a date on the same day they meet — is a complete turn-off for Ichika. Despite Ichika’s disgusted reaction (or arguably because of it), Ryō is convinced that she is the one. 

First Thoughts: UM…….. Well, fuck. You know, you do one good deed in your life and now it bites you in the ass when the guy who she prevented from a slip and fall wants to repay her with a kiss and a date. You think it sounds innocent but it really doesn’t. A girl saves your life and you want to repay her…. that’s cool. That’s fine but the shit he’s doing…. that’s not fine, that’s disturbing. It doesn’t help that she’s friends with his high-school aged sister and she’s encouraging this shit. You want her to be your sister-in-law or something? The motherfucker bags a lot of women and he goes through them like an hour after eating Taco Bell but to her….. he’s head-over-heels in love with the girl. Yeah, this looks like to be all kind of WTF-ery and I wonder if this might get a dub from CR unless they got another isekai show to do, but it’ll be better than this shit.

GIVE IT 3 EPISODES.

Yeah, I’m sure this isn’t going to end well.

I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and you should’ve let the motherfucker fall.
