If you have been reading my stuff for a while, you know I am a huge fan of good romance animes. So obviously I was going to check this anime out sooner or later. I was quite pleased with The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses in the first few episodes. But After a while, this anime started falling off for me.
That is because of a combination of factors that I will try to discuss in detail today. Now, I don’t mean to say this is bad anime, what I basically mean is that the series gets stale after the first few episodes. 7 episodes have aired so far and it does not show signs of picking back up yet. Maybe that will change in the future.
But for now, welcome back to another mid-season review. Today I am talking about The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses. So let’s get started.
What do I think about The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses?
Let’s start with my biggest complaint about the series, the side characters are non-existent. Almost all sections feature the main duo exclusively without any other character involved. This works fine for the first few episodes but it quickly gets stale after a while. Because you’re used to seeing their interactions all the time. In situations like these, having side characters break the flow of things makes the show more enjoyable to watch.
Every good romance anime has a cast of rich and even well-developed side characters that go well with the main duo. That is not the case in this anime. Because of this, what happens is we get over almost all possible interactions between the main duo just in the first few episodes. The episodes after that end up feeling boring/repetitive because of that. Komura did get a bit of character development, and he definitely has gotten closer to Mie compared to the first episode. But things need to change here a bit for the series to be engaging.
Some new characters to shake up the dynamics will really help the show going forward. I hope that this issue isn’t a thing by the time the last episode rolls around. Let’s end this article on a positive note though, the visuals of this anime are amazing. the art style and the animations combined with some well-used CG really make this anime a visual treat. The opening and ending themes are pretty good too.
So basically, The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses is not a bad anime, it just gets stale after a while. At least, that has been the case till episode 7. Maybe something will change in the remaining 5 episodes. Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. See ya!
