Suffice to say that this series surprised the author and half the damn blogosphere. A wake up call via shock therapy, and one that was needed. It’s not hard to see that many of us weren't expecting much from Kotoura-san. It’s an adaptation of 4-koma manga that was supposed to be about school romance and comedy. The first half of the episode came out of nowhere. Nevertheless, it was never really an underdog. With a good staff behind it, the story was all that’s left. So how was it?
