Rikei ga Koi ni Ochita no de Shoumei shitemita. (Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It) Introduction and Story
For aspiring scientists Ayame Himuro and Shinya Yukimura, if a concept cannot be proven then it has no basis in fact. Ayame asks Shinya out after discovering that she exhibits symptoms of love when she is around him. This confession leads the couple on a whirlwind of adventures trying to prove that love exists scientifically. While both Ayame and Shinya are brilliant scientists, they fall a little flat in their emotional intelligence. As they conduct experiments everywhere from the lab to the beach, Ayame and Shinya learn that there is a scientific explanation to love that allows them both to realize that they were really in love with each other all along. Following the journey of Ayame, Shinya, and the rest of the members of their lab, we are introduced into the world of a comedic and intelligent group of young individuals who hope to drive the world forward through their science.
1. The Science
Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It is not an anime for the faint of heart. While it follows a love story, it also focuses on concepts that can be difficult to follow. This is a learning anime that explains complex concepts to you but also allows you to learn about them while they are incorporated into the anime.
2. The Originality
This anime takes a concept that has been constantly overused, love, and turns it into a story with a twist. There is more than just a one-dimensional romance between Shinya and Ayame which allows for a more mature and entertaining plot for older audiences. This anime does not follow the much played out conventional romance that we see throughout many anime series.
3. The Supporting Characters
In many romance anime, supporting characters often lack development and don’t move the plot forward. However, in Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It the supporting characters are as much invested in Shinya and Ayame’s experiment as they are making for an entertaining cast with quite a bit of character development.
1. The Lack of Emotional Intelligence
Despite part of the main character’s charm being their misunderstanding of emotions, it is quite frustrating to watch as a viewer. There are times when the anime feels dragged out because of the same emotions and reactions being portrayed over and over again in the 12 episodes.
2. The Predictable Ending
This may be a case for many anime but the ending of the anime where they easily end up together was entirely too predictable. With the perfect setting after an argument and an easy make-up scene just felt juvenile for how much time we invested into these characters. This anime could’ve ended on a more interesting note and it would’ve made the entire show much more memorable.
3. Shinya Yukimura’s Character
Shinya was who everyone in the lab aspired to be but despite him being one of the main characters, he lacked development. We were able to dive deeper into the supporting characters’ background but we see very little about him as a person outside of the lab. He should have been given more time to develop. There is also a vague backstory about Ayame and Shinya meeting when they were younger but they didn’t elaborate on this so it was very confusing towards the end of the anime.
All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It. It was a breath of fresh air amongst all of the isekai that have been coming out lately but, like every anime, it deserves its critique and there are definitely issues that could’ve been straightened out easily with just slightly more creativity. Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It is definitely one for your to watch list, though, because of its uplifting and sweet nature.
