Yahello! Need a show with a main character you can relate or hate? How about a show full of names that people should be embarrassed to have? How about a show with a cute boy who will make even some of the straightest men fall in love with him? Well, join Sentai Filmworks on the trap side with the complete collection of My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU (MTRCS). Many thanks to Section23 for the review unit.
Hachiman Hikigaya is a youth with a rotten worldview. To him, anyone who says that they enjoy their school-life is lying. After giving a delightfully disgusting report on the aforementioned subject, his teacher forces him to join the Service Club, a club that helps solve other’s problems. Along with Yukino Yukinoshita and Yui Yuigahama, the Service Club has its share of stories to come. From reading horrible light novels to helping run school festivals, there’s no shortage of work for this club. Watch for more comedy, mishaps, and mysteries in My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU today!
MTRCS is a funny romantic comedy that also takes a serious look at humanity and our interactions with each other. Hikigaya’s near-putrid view of society can be a little off-putting at first, but not overwhelming. The storytelling between that worldview of his and the people surrounding him is absolutely invigorating. At the same time, as someone who has been a perpetual loner throughout most of his school-life, Hikigaya’s perspective was extremely relatable. If anything, the show gave me points to work on with my own inner shitty personality.
Overall, MTRCS is worth the money for the full collection. Two seasons of comedy, a trap, and more absolutely ridiculous name schemes than you can shake a stick at. I mean, seriously… Yui Yuigahama? Yukino Yukinoshita? Hayama Hayato? The in-universe parents that named their children were just that drunk during birth? Really? All-in-all, though, if you liked the premise of Tanaka-kun is Always Listless, but couldn’t stand the pacing of the show, this one definitely is for you. With a retail price of $79.98 USD, you can pick it up at the Sentai Filmworks store for today!
