There are just series that turn out better than people would have expected and just defy expectations. I really have to make “Mikakunin de Shinkoukei” or “Engaged to the Unidentified” as one of them. The first episode pretty much had this series as not getting much credit out of the gate. It’s really hard not to give myself credit for thinking this was going to be good and it ending up being good. I won’t because I didn’t actually end up covering it. I will say though that this is definitely a contender in my mind as the best series from the winter season. This series has good laughs, consistent character development and wasn’t afraid to continually make key revelations. Almost every episode felt like something important had happened and that helps keep the interest going.
