So this week’s anime recommendation may not be for everyone.But, I had a lot of fun rewatching this anime recently; so why not? It is one of those instances where I would not have watched this anime for a very long time till I heard about it. But, I watched it while it was airing thanks to Muse Asia and I loved every moment of it.
You have read the title; you know we are talking about KanojomoKanojo this week. And yes, I refuse to call it Girlfriend Girlfriend because that sounds wrong somehow. Well, it is a very fun anime and I am sure a lot of people will enjoy it so let’s get into the details.
KanojomoKanojo is an anime adaptation of manga of the same name. The manga is still ongoing and it is written and illustrated by Hiroyuki. It is somewhat a typical harem comedy but, it is so much more than that. The anime is just 12 episodes long and it aired from 3rd July to 18th September 2021. You can watch it for free over at Muse Asia’s YouTube channel. Check out the full episode playlist here.
I really had fun watching this anime. Again huge shout out to Muse Asia, without them, I wouldn’t have watched KanojomoKanojo till now. It is a really fun anime and I really recommend people to check it out. People say it is portraying NTR in a good light but man, seriously common it is an anime made for comedy. Just enjoy it. No need to take it so seriously.
KanojomoKanojo has your typical high school harem setting. The protagonist gets confessed to by a girl despite already being in a relationship. He isn’t able to resist and takes this girl to his existing girlfriend and convinces her to make it a 3-way relationship. Yes, that is how the anime starts. The whole anime revolves around Saki, Nagisa, and Naoya protecting their trying to protect their 3-way relationship. And man, it is hilarious as hell. But, the characters are where KanojomoKanojo shines.
Being a harem anime, you can already expect some typical girl stereotypes.KanojomoKanojo also has these stereotypes but, it shakes them up a little to make them feel more natural. Like how the tsundere stops being tsundere and accepts her feelings after a time and all. But, Naoya has got to be the most honest protagonist I have ever seen. He is open about everything, he even is not afraid to admit that he is in a 3-way relationship. Hell, he even is not afraid to admit his fetishes to his girlfriends. I love this guy, how the hell can you be so open with stuff??
Animations and Soundtracks
KanojomoKanojo has bright and colorful animations that perfectly go with its light-hearted atmosphere. Yes, the animation quality is fairly average but, that is fine for an anime like this. As for the soundtracks, nothing too noticeable but the opening and ending themes are very upbeat and catchy. Really good songs to vibe out to.
Why you should watch KanojomoKanojo?
- Really funny
- Really nice protagonist
- Simple plot
- Plain enjoyment
- Really catchy opening and ending themes
That is all for now. Let me know your thoughts in the comments. I really enjoyed KanojomoKanojo; even after 3 rewatches, this anime does not cease to amaze me. I still get stomach aches while watching this anime. With that said, I will take my leave here. See ya!
