You & Me (Kimi to Boku)

(13 episodes)

What’s it about ?

Four (soon five) high school boys’ slice of life adventures.

Characters

Kaname, the straight man of the group. Serious, and a bit annoyed by the others’ laid-back attitude.

Shun, the emotive, slightly childish dude.

Yuki, the younger of the two twins. Sullen and utterly apathetic. Feels the need to distinguish himself by not wearing the school blazer.

Yuta, the older of the two twins. mostly non-descript.

Production Values

Pastels. Also, lots of budget-mandated shortcuts, such as the characters often annoyingly facing away from the camera when they’re talking.

What did I think of it ?

This episode’s whole plot : Kaname tries to get Yuki to join a club, any club (+ a few flashbacks to elementary school). This complete absence of anything happening could work if the characters were fun to watch or had interesting chemistry, but they spend the whole episode bitching at each other or sulking. There’s no charm whatsoever, and the character don’t show any depth that’d make me care about them.

I just don’t care about these guys. Next show, please.

I've been kinda blogging about anime for years... but mostly on forums (such as RPG.net's Tangency) and other sites. This site is an archive for all that stuff, just in case.
