You watch one cute anime girl compilation and YouTube’s video recommendation algorithm will never let you forget it. On the upside though, the relentless barrage of anime clips brought Kaguya-sama: Love Is War to my attention. And never before have I fallen for a show so hard so quickly. Despite the fact that the show seems to stray from its own premise almost right away.
Thanks to it’s silly starting premise and a very catching opening, I ended up watching the whole series so far in an evening and it quickly charmed me on a level I was not expecting. The overly dramatic nature of characters and their constant game of one-upsmanship against one another is offset by unexpectedly sweet it can be at times.
