Kanojo ga Flag wo Oraretara
I saw the pre-air version of this show and I must say that I’m really not all that impressed. I didn’t read up on it, it never caught my eye and I’m actually about to watch it again because I can’t remember most of what I saw… That’s not a good sign.
The artwork, from what I can remember, was decent. I think that Nanami is the show’s crown jewel when it comes to character design. She is the first somewhat unique character I’ve seen that I would be able to recognize out of a ten-character line-up. Maybe…
The story is what worries me… It’s not all that unique, is it? I mean… A guy comes along with the ability to see things that others can’t. He can see what someone else wants or when someone’s about to die. Stuff like that has been done to death (pun intended). They might make it interesting if they can focus just enough on the romance.
Am I looking forward to this? Not really. Will I continue watching? Probably. There are one of two things that piqued my interest. That’s why I’m going to watch at least one or two more episodes before I decided to drop it or not. I suggest you do the same thing.
Plot Summary: Hatate Sota is a high school boy, who has an ability to visualize “flags” for future events such as “death flag,” “friendship flag,” and “romance flag.” Despite the flag-viewing ability, he avoids making friends with others due to a trauma he experienced in a ship submergence accident. Four beautiful girls get interested in his strange way of living, and they begin to live with him at the school dorm by force.
