The Angel Next Door Spoils Me Rotten Review — C

A guy and a girl are “just friends” but the girl just happens to act like his housewife and they cuddle on the couch every night.

Honestly, this wasn’t as terrible as I was expecting it to be. It still had some horrible takes on gender roles and the main characters are pretty boring— the male is a generic dude who’s a bit of an asshole, and the girl is the perfect housewife. But it was entertaining occasionally how embarrassed they would get, and how they tried to hide things from their friends. I also found it amusing how passionately they would argue in the start of the series that they had no romantic interests when that was so clearly where this was going.

My main complaint is that it could get kind of boring, especially when they were alone together in the house, during the middle of the series.
