Like a bolt from the blue, #HATEWATCH is here with its final installment. Start out the new year right by remembering just how bad some of last year’s shows got.
Despite the dearth in truly outstanding shows, there have been a lot of good romances and feel good moments for me to love this past year. A big focus has been awkward spazzes and the nerds who love them, so here’s a toast! Whether it’s playing shogi and make sure a bullied girl knows she’s not alone, taking a silent grouch on random photo shoots, or coming out of your shell to find out your best online friend makes a better boyfriend, we’ve had a lot of dorks out to steal our heart.
Itsuki reveals the reason he won’t date registered sex offender Nayu: He’s incredibly self-centered. Oh wait, we knew that already.
The worst kept secret in the world gets shared around even more as we learn the dumbest things about Itsuki’s family situation.
#HATEWATCH is become pain. There is nothing left but pain.
Miyako’s birthday comes around and Haruto wants to hit on her. Will I ever be freed of this Sisyphean nightmare?
There are three casual references to rape in this episode. This is supposed to be funny. Or titilating. Or maybe both. By resurrecting #HATEWATCH, I opened the door to a man-made darkness the likes of which have never been seen.
