Synopsis

High schooler Ganta Nakami has trouble falling asleep most nights. As a result, he is irritable at school, always searching for an opportunity to find a secluded place to doze off. On the other hand, Isaki Magari is a free spirit who is well liked by her friends, but no one is aware of her sleep disorder. She makes use of the school's abandoned astronomy club observatory as her secret sleeping bunker when she needs to get some shut-eye.

As fate would have it, Nakami finds Magari napping in the observatory. When Magari discovers that she and Nakami have something in common, she offers to share her secret sleeping spot with her fellow insomniac. As the two find warmth in each other's company, the struggles they face start to become easier to confront.

Few series have ever captured the struggles of youth as well as kimisomu does. It’s a a beautifully rendered and tender story of growth and self-acceptance.

This anime handles that stage of life with such realism and authenticity that it blew my mind.

I absolutely loved the use of ...

Insomniacs After School is much, much better than the likes of Your Lie in Apil. Why? Because it's much more grounded in reality and much less reliant on melodramatic scenes that "pull on your heartstrings" to create a compelling romance and slice-of-life show.

That's right: this show is much less melodramatic than I ever expected. Is this a good depiction of a person with insomnia? I can't say, since I don't suffer from it. What I can say, however, is that the genre of this show is mainly romance. The main couple being insomniac is more of a subtheme and a way for them to ...

Watching just one or two episodes, one may not realize how monotonous it can be, especially due to the quality of the characters and their relationships. However, the problem arises when watching more episodes, as the work seems to lose its momentum and offer nothing new.

There is a lack of elements to hold the viewer's attention and encourage them to watch the next episode, making the narrative somewhat monotonous. Although it didn't bother me directly while watching, sometimes it feels like we already know everything that will happen. Although it avoids clichés, the absence of cliffhangers at the end of episodes could make a difference. ...
