“Rec” is short for record. As in a recording studio.
Is it possible for an anime to be more endearing than “Rec”?
I’m not sure. There are ten episodes of 15 minutes. Each episode is named after an Audrey Hepburn movie. (Hepburn is adored by the female lead and often quoted.)
It is a sweet love story of a young woman & wanna-be voice actor on the down and out who moves in with an almost as down and out advertising writer. Her career blossoms while his stays dormant and, of course, this causes problems. Couldn’t help feeling for the guy and couldn’t help falling in love with her character. Not deep philosophy or great art but it just made me feel good. I don’t think anything else much matters.
