I know, I know. I started the Anime A to Z challenge with a harem anime… and a forgettable one at that!
It’s about the journey, through the good and the bad!
To be honest, his is actually a re-watch. I have seen Absolute Duo before. I believe I originally watched it in the summer of 2015.
But hear me out here, I had some reasons for watching Absolute Duo!
First, because I stumbled upon the OP on youtube, and I love the song:
That song is what first reminded me of Absolute Duo’s existence.
And that brought me to the second and main reason: I couldn’t remember a single detail from the anime. I didn’t even recognize the character pictured in the above YouTube video! All I could remember was that the characters were in pairs for some reason.
Which made me wonder – “why have I forgotten everything about this anime?”. Naturally I had to watch it to find out. I wanted to see exactly why the anime was so forgettable, to the point that I might as well have not ever seen it before.
So I re-watched Absolute Duo.
And here are my thoughts.
