Even though Minoa Asagaya is a novice when it comes to anime, she’s recruited into her high school’s anime research club during her freshman year. She turns into an obsessed fan, and she and her friends constantly engage in rapid-fire banter about the latest shows. Despite the protests of the student council club and the imminent destruction of the world, there’s always time to chat about anime!
