Needs more romance
28 November 2018 | by Trixie_reviewsSee all my reviews

This was fun to watch, but I wish there would be more romance. Clearly, the creators really took the title "Love Is Hard for Otaku " to their heart. If main charchters would at very least kiss, even just once, or maybe even just confess their feelings to each-oher. It would'v been so much better. Well, still it's a fun anime. But romance here seriously sucks.
