Kimi no Iru Machi — First Impressions


I read part of the manga a while ago, so I knew that I would hate this and drop it after the first episode going in. It’s the kind of show with a love triangle where the guy oscillates between two girls in the optimal way to cause the most drama and to make you hate him as much as possible. Not really my kind of thing. I also saw the OVA, which was absolutely terrible, so I had very low expectations for this show.

This episode was a huge improvement over the OVA, from what I recall, but that’s not saying much.


We start off with a girl trying to bash the main character’s head in with a baseball bat. Love is in the air! Then some cool kid showed up whose very existence made me want to bash his face in. I’ll admit that I fast-forwarded through the rest. In my opinion the animation / character designs look hideous.

  1. It’s a shame Asuka wasn’t able to follow through with the head bashing. Would’ve made for a nice script change.

  2. Riiight. When you see a stranger inside your neighbor’s home, it’s perfectly natural to crack his skull using baseball bat. There’s no need for questioning.
