As an amateur but talented photographer, high school student and orphan Tada Mitsuyoshi lives to capture presented moments, but how will body guard-protected, foreign transfer student Teresa Wagner encourage or change his raison d’être?
If you’re a fellow anime cynic, the very term “transfer student” is bound to set off warning bells, but Tada Never Falls in Love, via the draw of its own sardonic title and compounding of precepts, amazes by disappointing. That’s to say this anime, based around the dramedy of school club activities and its characters’ day-to-day experiences, is very much worth your time, and I’m going to try and convince you why in the difference between however many words I’ve wasted so far and my total allotted count: Nyanko Big.
Sixteen-year-old Nakamura Okuto has just fallen in love for the first time. Not only is he head over heels in love with his classmate Hirose Aiki, but he’s absolutely clueless on how to act on those feelings. As he observes his blissfully unaware classmate every day, he dreams up all kinds of ways to break the ice and let Hirose know how he really feels.
Go For It, Nakamura! observes an adorable, shy, occasionally klutzy teen dealing with his feelings for the guy of his dreams in some of the most awkward ways possible. Nakamura could be any one of us in high school, crushing on a classmate and unsure of what to do. Nakamura comes up with endless schemes to break the ice and let Hirose know how he feels, but just when he thinks he’s figured it out he ends up bungling his plans. And while he’s totally in tune with his sexuality, he’s not sure how being a gay man in the real world works. Coupled with the fact that he’s an octopus-loving introvert with a tumultuous school life, he’s got some hilarious obstacles in the way to figuring out how to (a) actually speak to Hirose and (b) profess his love. No pressure, right?

“I felt like a warrior, but Daddy said I looked like Pippi Longstocking.” Eight-year-old Saga Vanecek didn’t have your average summer vacation. While on holiday with her family by Sweden’s Vidöstern lake in July, she found an ancient sword on the bed of the lake. She reacted as any of us would upon discovering the […]
Horror stories about wishes gone wrong have been a staple at least since “The Monkey’s Paw” saw print. In turn, we’ve seen whole subgenres about unintended consequences, with notable occupants like Ray Bradbury’s “Sound of Thunder,” where minor changes in the past drastically reshape the future, or the Final Destination films, in which death finds […]
It’s remarkable how much we don’t know about Game of Thrones‘ final season. HBO has somehow prevented almost any leaks, big or small. But while we’re desperate to know more, all the secrecy also has lets us have fun wondering (and theorizing about) what will happen. It makes it all the more exciting when we get even […]
Since nearly the very beginning of cinema itself, audiences have been enthralled by an ancient evil living in a giant, lonesome castle in the Carpathian mountains.
