A disappointment with few redeeming factors
Before I started watching Kanamemo I knew it was either going to be very good, or extremely underwhelming, nothing in-between. Unfortunately, the anime was extremely underwhelming, even though it stayed quite true to the manga's story.
Looking back on the manga now, I remember I read it and enjoyed it, but I wouldn't have hesitated to drop it if I knew I would enjoy something else just as much. And the anime went beyond that, watching the last 7 episodes just felt like a chore, something that had to be done so I could put it to rest.
Initially, this review was going to go out a few days ago, on Saturday, as I had watched the first 6 episodes last Wed-Fri, and had the idea of finishing it over the weekend. But I just had so much better things to do, like stare at a screen waiting for someone to reply to a message with no real need to keep a conversation going. But I did this, and other tasks, because I had no drive to watch Kanamemo, and watching anime is how I spend most of my time over the weekend (if I haven't got the energy to code). I don't like starting a new anime if I am in the middle of one I am able to finish, hence why the Prisma Illya review came out as I was half way through it.
