For Kanade Amakusa, life as a high schooler should have been normal, and it would have been—if he wasn’t living with the most ridiculous curse imaginable. “Absolute Choice,” a system forced upon him by a self-proclaimed god, randomly presents a mental selection of actions that he must act out based on his choice. To add to his dilemma, it tends to occur in the most public of places, and his options never seem to deviate from the rude and crude in nature. As a result, the helpless boy stresses through each day, fumbling to repair his already tarnished reputation while desperately praying to avoid the next spontaneous episode of Absolute Choice. To his dismay, the one in charge is always one step ahead of him and proceeds to not-so-subtly “choice” him into the lives of several girls at his school. Just when Kanade’s school life can’t seem to be doomed any further, a decision that he reluctantly selects on the way home sends a beautiful girl crashing down from the sky, along with the promise of more hysterically hellish choices. – My Anime List

Normally comedies will use plot to make you laugh. This show on the other hand will just throw comedy in your face and it’s glorious. I’m sitting here audibly laughing out loud instead of just smiling and blowing a bit more air out of my nose.
My Mental Choices Are Completely Interfering With My School Romantic Comedy: The Complete Collection is a weird series but it is also very funny. Be advised though that there are a few dirty moments in some episodes. Watch out for episode nine especially.
My Mental Choices Are Completely Interfering With My School Romantic Comedy is a strange series thanks to its premise that constantly sees how absurd everything can be. While the depth of the cast is disappointing considering the various hints that we are shown throughout the course of the series, where this series shines is when it is trying to make you laugh.
The concept originally seemed intriguing, but it was hurt by the execution in the long run. The show had some interesting ideas at times, but ruined them largely by turning far too often to cliche and trite, tired “humor” which is long past its sell-by date. While there is some comedy to be had, sadly the final feeling I am left with is frustration, exactly the same feeling the girls in Kanade’s harem must be feeling, as they pound their heads against walls and bewail their fate: falling in love with one of those indecisive idiots who tries to cover up his weakness by claiming “I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings.” By making such an infantile choice, you wind up hurting everyone’s feelings but your own. Grow up.
Noucome is a good example of the difference between an enjoyable anime and a good one. While you are likely to enjoy the show, there’s not much meaning behind it. Watch Noucome if you’re short on time or just want a good laugh.

I can say that I really enjoyed Noucome, it didn’t really felt rushed and was overall a really pleasant experience that made me laugh way more than one time per episode. All the characters were unique and funny, the art was really good and the plot was the perfect setup for a Romcom like this.
NouCome is an entertaining comedy, tongue-in-cheek parody of the romcom genre at its best and a fanservice loaded, generic harem at its worst. If you can struggle through all the boob and panty shots, you’ll find yourself a really witty set-up and lots of brilliant gags. Of course, the humour is not for everyone, but I’d suggest watching the first 2 episodes to get a taste of what the show is like. If it hasn’t captured you by then, it’s probably not for you. In the end, NouCome is a pretty fine show that offers a lot of laughs, boobs, moe-ness and a surprisingly interesting view on making choices and how it affects our lives.
Overall, the anime is creative and entertaining, but it didn’t really have a plot besides the curse. It felt bland and lacking, basically consisting of nothing but stupid jokes. There is a bit of a romance plot but it’s so hidden, it’s almost not even worth it. The characters are a bit flat, but they are interesting enough.
Overall ‘My Mental Choices are Completely Interfering with my School Romantic Comedy’ is a fun anime to watch, but is filled with stereotypes and lacks overall character development. If you enjoy harems, fan-service and some silly comedy this is definitely your cup of tea.
So yeah, that’s NouKome. It’s not worth the words wasted on its title and it’s not worth your time. I normally have a car crash fascination with bad anime (I almost looked forward to watching Another when it was airing) but I had to force myself to finish this show. It holds no fascination, it has very little worth and it is best forgotten sooner rather than later. I don’t think it has a “choice” in the matter (Okay, I couldn’t resist).
