Once Konobi got over its creepy jokes as Usami’s expense in the first episode, it worked its way into being one of my favorite shows this season. All in all, it’s not an exceptional anime by any means, but there’s one aspect of it that has really endeared it to me—the surprising excellence of Usami and Uchimaki’s relationship. Shows like Absolute Duo have shown I’m weak to anime where the central relationship is solid, and Konobi falls into that category. And so I wrote about what makes Usami’s crush on Uchimaki better than your average anime blushing.
Also, I hope you guys appreciate the fantastic pun I worked into the title this week.
