Watashi ga Motete Dousunda Season 1 Synopsis
The story of Kiss Him, Not Me runs something like this: Kae Serinuma studies in the second year of high school. She is an avid fujoshi who secretly ships her classmates, Igarashi-kun and Nanashima-kun. After her favorite anime character dies, she becomes increasingly stressed and begins losing weight. With the weight-loss, Serinuma becomes attractive and apparently faces more troubles. Rest of what follows shows how she is going to deal with her snarky kouhai Shinomiya-kun, and her senpai Mutsumi.
The anime adaptation was announced in the Bessatsu Friend magazine’s April 2016 issue, to the relief of several fans who had been wanting an anime adaptation of the hit manga series. The anime adaptation was compelling that helped expand the loyal fanbase who are now looking forward to Watashi ga Motete Dousunda Season 2. Season one was pretty well received.
