Uzaki chan Season 3 is in much demand but when will it release?
The idea of pairing two characters with contrasting personalities in a rom-com setting has resulted in many successful animes, for many such animes are a guilty pleasure, while for others, it’s simply a tick off their bucket list.
Quiet Boy meets loudmouth girl, has admittedly been an overused and overdone trope, yet there is no doubt these shows provide a wholesome feeling. A feeling that we experience while watching Uzaki-chan is wanting to hang out.
Uzaki-chan wants to hang out in a slice of life- rom-com anime based on the manga writings of Take and adapted by Entertainment Graphics Innovation Studios.
The plot follows a pair of college students, Hana Uzaki and Shinichi Sakurai, two characters with dissimilar dispositions. Shinichi is an introverted tall young man who likes the company of no one but himself. He cherishes his solitude so much that he prefers to be left alone in peace than spend time with anyone else.
On the other hand, Hana Uzaki is a petite yet boisterous young girl filled with exuberance who vibrantly lives her life. Her transformation came after she moved to college, where she went from a reserved individual to a chatty patty and outgoing in nature.
Hana and Shinichi are old high school acquaintances who meet in college, and Hana quickly notices the silent nature of Shinichi. Hana is worried about Shinichi s’ introversion and thinks his time at college will be spent the same way as in his high school days.
Hence, Hana Uzaki takes it upon herself to bring about a change in Shinichi s’ personality and end his loner lifestyle. She starts getting involved with the reclusive Shinichi’s’ daily life, which is repulsive to such extroversions, but she enjoys having her around.
Uzaki and Shinichi s’ polar opposite personalities become a source of comedic antics as the two unknowingly develop a charming platonic friendship.
Uzaki -chan wants to hang out had mixed reception, particularly around Uzaki s’ character design. Many fans found her overdeveloped features unnecessarily sexualized.
Before the release, the biggest backlash the show received was when the Japanese Red Cross used a lewd picture of Uzaki on its poster. But the situation was remedied after the writer donated blood to the Red Cross.
Despite the controversy, Uzaki-chan wants to hang out had its takers as many fans quite enjoyed the rom-com slice-of-life show.
So much so that while the second season is currently on air, fans have begun wondering whether a third installment is on the cards or not.
