I cannot stop watching this terrible romcom and I blame two things: Evirus and Crunchyroll. I don't think I would ever bother torrenting, and I would not give it a second chance after the facepalm of ep.1 without Evirus' advocacy and spoilers.
Oh, and one other thing: the comparison with the classics is very instructive here. When I watched, say, Initial D, I never paid any attention to the moldy tropes as they occured, because they were masterfuly deployed. When I watched Yowapeda, the same tropes were obvious and painful. What is that magic of competence? I am sure Yamakan would love to know. Golden Time, too, makes me appreciate initial Ai yori Aoshi and the original Nodame this much more.
I'm not sure what to think about about this series. I can't remember whether the manga or the light novel first caught my eye, but I bounced around to see what would happen between Kuoko and Mitsou, then got drawn in to the Banri background, which made Linda more in focus...
There seemed to be a pretty nice build right up until anime episode 10, and now it looks like it might fall into typical fare. It will be sad if it does, but not especially sad, if you know what I mean.
It is also interesting how this and Infinite Stratos have both rushed through the light novels to the point where they have almost passed them by.

But I will give Nodame a look.
