Hajimete no Gal Review — C

A loser gets a girlfriend.

I would probably classify this as a harem, but the main character actually only had an interest with one of the girls and was in a relationship with her the entire time. Which, amazingly, makes it a fairly novel setup. I liked how it portrayed the awkward early phases of both characters’ first relationship, where neither of them knows what to do.

But otherwise, it’s pretty forgettable. There’s nothing to bring it from decent to good. The other characters are not particularly interesting, nor is the plot. All the supporting male characters are especially worthless, along with loli-boobs. And while the show deals with a somewhat unusual subject matter (at least for anime), the treatment of it isn’t especially interesting. Boy meets girl, they slowly become closer and learn to trust each other a little bit.

It was fine. That’s about all I can say.

  • Storytelling – C – Decent.
  • Voice – B – Wow, people who actually date each other.
  • Characters – D – Terrible supporting characters.
  • Attention Grab – C – I finished, wasn’t bad.
  • Production – C – Looks ok.
  • Overall – C

  1. Are you watching Tsurezure Children? It’s like, twelve anime together all with this set up but slightly different takes and actually well done, plus all the fluff cut out. And it’s adorable.

  2. Supposedly the manga’s better, since it fleshes out the relationships more.
    Also, Hajimete’s director will also be starting up his own anime studio.
