On a whim, I watched Gamers! today. People were talking about how it had fairly current games in it and I thought to myself, "I'm a videogame nerd. Let's do this!" I didn't think the games were that current, but that's not the important part. The important part is this series is so cute. So. Cute.
I can't even with how cute everything is. I thought it was going to be kinda skeevy from the first episode and who knows maybe it will be, but the 2nd episode! That sold me. That 1000% sold me.
I did laugh at myself when the series basically caught me thinking, "Oh Amano, you're going to be my bicycle. Guy, girl, you can bang them all" And then Amano screams out, "I have no interest in men" Well played, series. Well played.
I actually kind of like the twists of tropes in this series. It's going to be a fun romcom from what I see. I actually laughed watching this and usually I just kind of enjoy romcoms. Although to be fair, I'm more laughing at how self-aware the series it. It's like it knows your thoughts and just mirrors it back to you in unexpected ways.
Mostly though, Amano's pure heart and totally obliviousness is a killer for me. Right through the heart. I can't wait to see what other feels he inflicts on the rest of the cast with his pure hearted love of gaming. Oh Amano, I kinda wanna ship you with what's-her-face(Sorry, no one's name, but the MC's stuck), but I feel like my lulz factor will be more if you just slowly drain the sanity out of her by completely missing her extremely obvious signals some more.
