Within every RomCom there is always a time for romance and a time for comedy, or even both at the same time. The whole anime genre has always been actually quite expressive when it comes to release of anime. In 2016, the RomCom genre stuck closely to a more pure format. With the romance and comedy coming at the hands of the two involved in the relationship or the possible relationship. It kept it simple, mainly with dialogue and actions between the two characters, where it was nice to see how everything evolved (or not) in the end. With that being said:
Deirii Raifu’s Pick:
Nijiiro Days – ‘Shiny Rainbow Days’
“And so the more I wish- wish- wish to be with you…”
Nijiiro Days takes the top spot this year. With the relationships between the 4 guys and 4 girls within the show setting the pace for the entire series. The fact that there were four different relationships or possible ones, allowed for an overload of romance-esque scenes but also a ton of comedy as the guys play the butt to each others jokes. It also provided those “cute” moments where you can just watch with a smile on your face knowing, everything went well.
