Overview

My Mental Choices Are Completely Interfering With My School Romantic Comedy, or Noucome as it is known and as I will be referring to it from here on out, is a romantic comedy based around the choices the protagonist is forced into. It’s a harem romantic comedy, so nothing new, however what I liked about this one is that not only do strange things happen, but there’s a real explanation behind why they happen.

The premise for the show is that one day the main character, Kanade, is suddenly forced to choose between to ridiculous options. He is unable to pick neither. These choices become a constant part of his life and so he becomes known as one of the “Reject Five,” a group of students who nobody wants to associate with because they’re weird.

Eventually Kanade learns of a way to rid himself of his curse, but if he fails his mission then he will be stuck with his mental choice curse for the rest of his life.


Characters

Kanade is the protagonist and the only one currently afflicted by the mental choices curse over the course of the anime. While he just wants to have a normal high school life, he has slowly started to get used to his life as an outcast due to the choices he is forced to make.

Chocolat is a girl who appeared from the sky and landed on Kanade due to one of the choices he made one day. She is supposed to be the one to guide Kanade on his path to lift the curse, but she forgets what she was supposed to do and so isn’t very helpful. One of her defining characteristics is her love of food which is shown by her name, Chocolat (no, that isn’t a misspelling, she took the “e” off the end to make it sound more fancy).

Besides Kanade and Chocolate who are the main characters, there are a fair number of supporting characters. However, I’ll only be going through a few of them who are also members of the “Reject Five” group.

Furano is the first of these characters. She likes to tell jokes, but does so without showing any emotion so nobody ever really knows whether she’s joking or not. She’s also a tsundere who likes Kanade. Finally, she has an obsession with a character known as White Pig which she hides from everyone because it’s a character for children, not high schoolers.

Ouka is Kanade’s friend who brings products in from her family’s company to test on other students. She’s generally energetic and likes to have fun. Ouka also occasionally tries to help Kanade with his mental choice problem, but she also finds his antics entertaining.

The final character I’ll mention is one who comes into the show a bit later on than the rest. Yuragi is a childhood friend of Kanade’s who sees him as her older brother. She also sees everyone else as her older siblings too and refers to everyone she meets in a similar fashion. This has won her a spot as part of the “Reject Five” because she takes her act of being everyone’s little sister to the extreme.

Conclusion

I liked Noucome in general and found it to be fairly similar to Is This A Zombie?, but not as extreme. However, while I like that Is This A Zombie? has more than one season, I was glad that Noucome only had one because I felt the concept would stop being entertaining at a certain point. Sometimes it’s best to end a series before it has the chance to get ruined.

If you’re into harem romantic comedies, then I would suggest checking out this anime, but if not then it’s not much different from the others which I would consider good. If you’ve seen one you’ve essentially seen them all so there’s no real need to go out of your way for this anime. That said, I give this anime a 7/10.
