Just Because Episode 5 Review

I know I’m a couple of days late but now I’m finally here with my Just Because Episode 5 review. In the last episode, Haruto gets rejected by Morikawa and it felt bad to me personally. Also, Natsumi and Izumi had a little fight and Izumi got carried away and kind of tell her Natsumi that he likes her, not properly but still he gave a hint.

My Review

Well, from its animation to its characters, its story to its narration it felt so light and realistic. There are many times where I can relate my previous life with it and can feel exactly what its creators are trying to express. After getting rejected Haruto and after Izumi having a little fight both Haruto and Izumi don’t want to go to school because of what was happening in their love life.

In that scene of school day morning, I noticed the dark spots under Haruto eyes which clearly means that he didn’t get any good sleep for a while. Not able to sleep is pretty normal after all he loved Morikawa and then getting rejected by his love is hard for anyone.

Though once they both reached in school it was different, Haruto played himself like nothing has happened. It felt weird to Morikawa ut she didn’t say anything also. On the other side, Natusme was feeling sorry about the other night as she went a little ahead and said things that she shouldn’t have to say to Izumi. In the entire episode, he was trying to find Izumi to apologize to him and continue their friendship. She found him in the end of the episode but before that, she had a chat with Morikawa over coffee.

Morikawa tells Natsume that how she feels about Haruto. Going out with him made her feels good and since then she was only thinking about Haruto. But because she gets caught off guard by Haruto when he confessed his feeling, Morikawa said No without even giving a thought to it. Now she is confused what to do next, Natsumi suggested her to give it a try and then talk to Haruto.

After that, she also wanted to give it a try and she found Izumi at the bus stop. They both traveled in the same bus and she did apologize to him, he apologized in return as he is a guy who has feelings for that same girl who is saying sorry. Izumi was afraid that she might know now that he has to feel for her but Natsumi didn’t say anything to prove that and Izumi is confused if she knows or not.

Just Because Episode 3 Review

Yesterday the episode 3 of Just Because was aired and man high school love is something that we never forget. I still remember mine and watching this series is just like what I’ve in my school days. I wanted to talk about the episode so without any delay here is my Just Because Episode 3 Review.

My Review

In the last episode, we get to see Haruto’s love confession and now in this episode, we get to see his determination. HE loves Morikawa and he is so determined to make Morikawa fall in love with her. Just to prove how determined he is, he rides miles on his bike just to see her and not just this he his confronting his fears of dog just because Morikawa has a pet dog and if he wants to date her he has to be good with dogs. The best scene of this episode was the smile that covers his face when Haruto fall because of riding his bike for miles and then Morikawa passed a cup of tea to him.

All the characters are good but Haruto is the best character in the series till now as all the other characters are still in developing phase. Just Because is a very different series of this season light-hearted love story that feels very real and relatable. Though this series is going to be a pretty messed up later as Haruto is in love with Morikawa, while Natsume has feelings for Haruto at the same time Izumi used to like Natsumi in the past and now the photographer girl from the second year.

This episode was the least entertaining than other two episodes but it is still nice. I know me alongside all the anime geeks out there have to wait for the next episode but I’m afraid about the series as there seem to be some production issues with the series. I know production issues are very normal with the animes. But the issue at this early stage, I don’t want this series to end up soon. This episode was outsourced to a new production house and this episode is their first work on any anime. The episode was not bad at all but all I’m afraid about is the issues that they are facing.

We are still getting the Haruto’s love story but I’m waiting for the love story of Izumi and Komiya (our photographer girl). They might be portraying the main story of the series but we have to wait to see what will happen next.


Just Because Episode 2 review

If you are like me and you love romance then Just Because is the one you should watch this fall season. Episode 2 was available to stream online. So, here is my Just Because Episode 2 review.

My Review

Somewhat dull color that represents winter suits perfectly as the animation of this series. Music that calms your soul and makes you feel relaxed is why I liked Just Because. Izumi, Haruto, and Natsume are the used to be friends when they were in middle school but when Izumi and his family transferred they lost all the connection but now Izumi is back to his hometown and he is in the same school with Haruto and Natsume.

As it is a romance and high school drama, in this episode we see a typical love confession from Haruto. They all are in their final year and Haruto realizes that this might be her last time to tell Morikawa, how he feels about her. He rushed in the entire school trying to find her love I guess. Well if you watched the episode and watch the scene where Haruto tried to confess her feeling, it would be so relatable (only for boys). He got nervous and instead of asking her on a date, he ended-up inviting three other friends of her as well, of course, this includes Izumi and Natsume.

In this episode, it was hinted that Natsume used to have feelings for Haruto in the middle school and Izumi is the only one who knows’s that also Izumi was the one who had a crush on Natsumi in the middle school. It is kind of a love triangle but now Haruto like Morikawa and Izumi is kind of confused I guess. As he said it was all in the past but he might still think about her. Though in the last episode the second year student Komiya confronts Izumi as he was a transfer student and she was kind of stalking him, trying to find out her. Actually not like proper stalking but she was kind of desperate to know who he is (the transfer student).

Later in the episode, we see Haruto and all in the aquarium, it was date kind of not like what Haruto wanted as he asked Izumi, Natsume and Inui also Morikawa bring her two younger brothers to the aquarium. It was hard for Haruto but he handled it pretty well, as Morikawa’s brother ended up liking Haruto and later Haruto gets a text from Morikawa, saying that she had fun today.

That’s all was in the episode then main love story is still have to take place and we certainly have to wait for it. However, being a top geek of anime, I can already tell that Just Because has some excellent episodes coming up.
