It is widely believed that science can provide rational explanations for the countless phenomena of our universe. However, there are many aspects of our existence that science has not yet found a solution to and cannot decipher with numbers. The most notorious of these is the concept of love. While it may seem impossible to apply scientific theory to such an intricate and complex emotion, a daring pair of quick-witted Saitama University scientists aim to take on the challenge.

One day the bold and beautiful Ayame Himuro outwardly declares that she is in love with Shinya Yukimura, her fellow logical and level-headed scientist. Acknowledging his own lack of experience with romance, Yukimura questions what factors constitute love in the first place and whether he is in love with Himuro or not. Both clueless in the dealings of love, the pair begin to conduct detailed experiments on one another to test the human characteristics that indicate love and discern whether they demonstrate these traits toward each other.

As Himuro and Yukimura begin their intimate analysis, can the two scientists successfully apply scientific theory, with the help of their friends, to quantify the feelings they express for one another?

Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove it is my first romance comedy anime for 2023. Wotwoo! I actually came across this one accidentally on the streaming site I am using and I thought the name was kind of interesting. Thinking it would be a romance, I was really surprised that it’s also a comedy!

I adore romance comedy in my books, but it’s still a fresh genre for me in my anime so I was not really sure if I will enjoy this series or not. Read below to see if I did, *wink.

Btw, this review is for both season one and two.

Opening & Ending Themes

I love it! The thing about slice of life and comedy anime is that I always LOVE their opening and ending themes. And this series is no different. I love that the themes for both seasons offer a different feel to me. The opening theme for the first season gave me a really cute vibe while introducing the characters. The opening of the second season on the other hand features a different side to the characters, and I really love it!

The ending themes on the other hand were also gorgeous. For the first season, it was more on the cute side, while the second season was like a short special episode. I really love how they put more effort into it.

Story

This story started when Himuro told her fellow researcher/scientist Yukimura that she loves him. I thought at first that it was going to be a cheesy romance after that, but surprise surprise, it was far from your usual romance scenes, lol. The setting is in a lab and both the characters are researchers/scientists, so it makes sense that they will soon conduct experiments on love, lol.

I really laugh out loud on that part, I’m sorry, it was no offense meant for any researchers out there. It was just, I wasn’t expecting that, lol.

It’s just amazing how vast the anime world is, tackling different kinds of topics that I never thought would be possible, lol. Although it may not be a novel plot to some, but I really think that it was a great idea. I just love how this series incorporated romance and science together into a comedy setting making it really enjoyable to watch.

I really enjoyed the first season compared to the second. The first season is mostly about introducing the characters with their unique characteristics, experiments (which are mostly hilarious and fun), and a whole lot of scientific knowledge, numbers and formulas that all science geeks will love. I believe the finale episode of this season is already enough to conclude the series as a whole that even without a sequel, I am still satisfied.

Season two on the other hand started what season one left off. The first six episodes were so good that I believe it should have ended in episode 6. I’m really sorry to say this, but everything after episode 6 especially the finale episode disappointed me. I just think that the story of these two researchers finally determined that they both love each other should be the end of it. But no, no, no. They added another person into their love story, then ended the season. What a bummer right?! Also, I think season two is more ecchi than the previous. Which made watching this season extra hard, because one of my family members might come at the wrong time, wahahaha.

Overall it was still an entertaining series. I just wish they didn’t include a third person. I could have given both season the same rating 🙁

Characters

I actually like the line-up of characters. Each of them are very easy to remember because everyone has their own unique or should I say, “weird” characteristics, hahaha. I would have ended up loving all the characters, until season 2 episodes 7-12 (most especially 12!) happened.

But besides that season two mayhem (this is only for me), I think Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove it has some really interesting and fun characters.

Art & Animation

I don’t have any complaints on this one. I believe both seasons have gorgeous art and animation which suits the story really well. I haven’t seen/read it’s manga so I can’t say if the anime followed the latter, so I’ll just comment on the character design. Which luckily, I don’t have anything bad to say, *wink. What can I say, I just love everything that I see in this series, *wink.

If you’re into romance comedy, or just someone who wants a break to their intensen anime, then Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove might be worth checking out. Have fun watching!

I’m sorry the second season didn’t work as well as the first one for you, but it still looks like a cute romantic comedy anime 🙂
