Existential Crisis Simulator 2006
Well-written and well-told story about a serious subject matter. Got both humor and sadness and is a very human tale.
Dark humor with a side of hitting you right in the feels. This show might be hard to swallow for some but I loved every second of it.
When you tell someone your favorite anime involves 2 shutins making a pororaphic video game, you get some odd looks.
While this is a fantastic anime, definitely don’t watch this during your dark night of the soul.
I knew nothing about this going in and it was one of the best stories I’ve seen. A lot of humor and a lot of moments that hit close to home.
Slow in some spots but truly insightful story about different ways of combating social anxiety and paranoia.
