Hello Everyone green tea here and today I’m doing a review on the new Netflix series Romantic Killer. if you dont like to read or just prefer a video instead please check out my youtube channel GreenTea to watch the review. now with the introduction out the way let’s see if this show is the right one for you.
is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Wataru Momose. It was serialized in Shueisha’s Shōnen Jump+ website from July 2019 to June 2020, with its chapters collected into four tankōbon volumes. An original net animation adaptation by DOMERICA was released on Netflix in October 2022.
When gamer Anzu gets transported to a world of hot guys, it’s like she’s in a dream…someone else’s dream! High schooler Anzu Hoshino has a great life. Every day she plays video games, pigs out on snacks, and pets her beloved cat. But this blissful existence is turned into a confusing mess when a magical creature transports her to an altered reality bereft of her favorite things. Now she’s stuck with hot guys instead! How can she possibly survive in such an awful world?! Anzu must play along in this altered reality before she can return to her normal life, so she begrudgingly makes friends with Tsukasa Kazuki. He unfortunately happens to be one of the hottest and most popular guys at school, and what’s worse, she realizes that he might not even be that bad of a person!
Initially I don’t really like Netflix adaptations of animes especially their anime live action movies those always suck. But I enjoyed Romantic Killer it was really funny and the fact she doesn’t want to be in this position she just wants to play video games really hit home for me there was plenty of times that I felt that exact same way. Like why am I here I rather be home playing video games. This is also one of those animes that put random ugly faces on characters and if you grew up watching The Misadventures of Flapjack or SpongeBob SquarePants you’ll understand what I mean I love that humor it kills me every time so if you like that then that’s one thing you’ll enjoy about this show. I also enjoy how random the situations are because the magical creature was like yeah let’s just make your life a whole Trope and there’s nothing you can do about it. I don’t know another anime that just basically has the main protagonist a hostage the whole time and forces them to participate like this one does but I really enjoyed watching her not want the romance to happen but it still does and she ends up enjoying it. If you want something light hearted to watch then this can’t be that show for you if you want something to watch with a partner then I would recommend this especially it’s a good anime for those who just barely started watching anime and want something easy and accessible. I feel like Netflix does a good job at making accessible anime they usually tend to want to hit a big audience with their own content. It is a good show I’ll give it a 7.5/10 it’s not the best romance anime out there but it’s definitely not the worst and I did enjoy it mostly.
