Engage Kiss TV anime announced. Coming Summer 2022.

Promotional Trailer:



Premise/Plot

Quote:
The anime is set in Baylong City, an artificial island city established in the Pacific Ocean to exploit local natural resources. The anime centers on three characters. The first is Shū, who runs a small company, though his spending habits have left him constantly penniless. A girl named Kisara frequents Shū's office and is constantly worried for him. Kisara attends a high school in Baylong City, and does everything from clerical work to household chores with confidence. Meanwhile, Ayano is Shū's ex-girlfriend and former work colleague in a company that Shū used to work for.

Finished watching it today and heh, it really looks like Kisara really has some weird love towards Shu. Unfortunately, the protagonist has a rather dull personality unless the show develops him more.

Ayano also seems like the type who can get irritated easily. Definitely got mixed thoughts on the three main leads at the moment.

Without Kisara this could be pretty entertaining show. Well, hopefully it will be at least watchable.

Is it just me, or does this series has some "Rosario + Vampire" to it?

Given the author I'm not sure if I'd expect much.

I wasn't sure what to expect but its kind of interesting anyway. I'll give it a couple more episodes at least.

Kisara is like the only reason to watch this show so far. That and it has good animation. I also like that the MC is an adult with romantic experience rather than another virgin high schooler.

Yeah, this didn't exactly grip me. One more episode, but unlikely I'll keep up with it.

.. yeah this (in my opinion) was boring, the main dude is apparently just scum but not in the fun way, the pink haired girl is the annoying clingy type and the whole plot just feels like a Raildex fan fiction writer read Strike the Blood because it felt like a Raildex fanfiction and said: "I can do it too."

I'll just stick to Raildex series, those that like it, I hope you enjoy it.

The animation is fine, but the setting has been there, done that. But the main characters were a problem. The guy is the lazy but powerful type, and the girl is the crazy lover. And neither were portrayed in a way that made them likeable.
Great you got a budget for the original anime, but unfortunately, scriptwriting is one of the things that simply pouring money can't solve. Frankly, it's on the same level as Hand Shakers, just more sexual

I thought the episode was okay. Kinda agree that the MC has a trash personality; using the girl and woman like he does, but I'm sure there is a reason they are so attached to him(I hope). Not sure I'll make it to that reason at this pace, but we'll see .

Fighting looked cool, but seemed like some stupid things were happening. I think they delved a bit too far into the comedic aspect during the fight for my tastes. Then there are other stupid(or at least what appears to be stupid) concepts like not using the super bullet first(unless its an Outlaw Star Gene Starwind Caster gun situation), and depriving your powerful right-hand girl energy for 3 months when all she needs is kiss or some... whatever(plasma/blood or other energy she sucked out of him). If you have her, why spend practically all of the money you'll earn for the job on support when you can use the girl for free? Just to establish the little catgirl rivalry between (*goes to look up names) Ayano and Kisara? It's dumb to me, as that could have been established at a less serious time, that doesn't make the MC look like an incompetent useless buffoon, but whatever. I'll give it a few more eps at least since the core drive of the plot has yet to be established, but given the little flash to his family portrait, and mentions of his father, it probably has something to do with how his father, or maybe his whole family "mysteriously disappeared" or something.

I'd like to think more of Fumiaki Maruto than that...

Personally Ayano and Kisara trying to kill each other during the fight basically made it for me .

That whole scene where it was not clear if they are killing mobs or try to kill each other was pretty hilarious. I don'y get the RailDex comparison at all (and let's be frank, Komachi is your typcal geeky graphomaniac who just got his popularity). I think way better of Maruto Fumiaki as a writer but the ep. 1 was way to confusing. I am not sure what to expect based on it.

When the fight started I was "nice, so the protagonist is actually competent", then Kisara appeared and I went "wait, so he's here only to give her the boost and then watch her save the day". In the end he went back to be competent and dealt the final blow to the demon, so I feel a bit reassured.
It's too soon to give a judgement but battle fantasy with ecchi is a genre that I usually like so I'll keep watching for now.
