This is not the usual anime. Whose destination where you find fun and enjoyment in watching, essentially for inexperienced people. It’s more like a long serious novel you don’t find in your everyday anime, which their purpose was to move adults emotionally– in the case of telling a great story of how several characters grow in their minority to adulthood. The coming-of-age narrative “Sing Yesterday for Me” tells a story about a young man with little ambitions in life after college, who works at a convenience store in order to make a living.
“You have nothing to hurt people or to be hurt by. You lie, you play along with what people say, and have a BS life.” Beautiful, yet bittersweet emotions. The story can typically be summed up by announcing that it’s regarding a love quadrangle. There are two young men and two young women, just springing out in life after school, and we accompany them as they try to determine who will marry who and what each will do as a profession. Not simple for them. The writing is very emotionally resonant It captures past adolescence so painfully well. There will be moments where characters will throw out a random line and without obtaining a significant opportunity out of it you imagine “Damn. That hits way too close to home.” Each episode in this anime has been so deposited in substance it feels like you’ve gone through a complete season in just 15 minutes.
“You seem pretty evasive about life. Do you think you’d look dumb if you were a tryhard? You’re just self-deprecating to give yourself a way out, aren’t you? So that you won’t get hurt, no matter where the chips fall.”
Doga Kobo does a great job of animating from manga to anime. The art is given a fascinating feel to it. Every episode that I watch, I enjoy the scenery and the landscapes. What caught my attention the most, is that the animation made it worth watching. And you should too.
The actors are pretty capable and no one does badly. The opening is really good. The ending is really good as well. The opening for sure is a song that I cannot skip. One day, it will be iconic. The ending theme song really caught my consideration.
Without the characters, this anime wouldn’t be the same. The adult who feels raw, depressing emotion in his past adolescence.
Uozumi Rikuo: The main character who has little to no ambitions in life after graduating from college as a student. He has a love for photography. Working part-time at a convenience store to pay off his rent and supplies to maintain his health.
I enjoyed every part of the anime. By the end of the first episode, I was already 100% invested. This is an unconditionally exquisite production and I’m thoughtfully astounded that after all the cute girl shows that Doga Koba is known for, they’ve instantly attained their time to shine with depressed adults do existential crisis matters.
There are still some flaws in this anime. This anime falls in its own spot. This is definitely not the best anime that I’ve personally seen, but this anime depicts such raw human emotions that any adult that enjoys anime would watch for sure. In summary, this is a remarkably descriptive depiction of earnest adolescent Japanese people as they pass through the most significant beginning degree of their experiences.
Do I recommend this anime? Yes, by all means, please watch this anime whenever you get the chance to.
