Hey all. I managed to finished this show in just 2 days, so it’s going to be good.
Originated from a manga, and still ongoing. Anime aired for only 12 eps.
Storyline is great. One only flaw is that its ONLY 12 eps, I cannot get enough of such romance, it feels a lot more heartwarming than Akagami. Even though the romance is pretty weird, with the main heroine being way older than the MC. The story is so smooth, yet unpredictable. The character developments are very good too, but the story lacks of rivals to test their relationship which makes the show a bit flatlined. But they compensate that with a lot of romantic interactions. The comedy of this show is also pretty splendid, they played the comedy naturally a lot of times, which make some comedy moments more funnier than it should. The ending is an original ending but they wrapped it up very nicely, it’s probably the happiest ending I have ever seen in awhile. Even though its original, it does gives a sense of closure unlike the generic “read the manga” endings. The ep count may be little, but the pacing is just right, sometimes slow but its fine. Overall, this show is probably my favourite shoujo show in awhile.
Animations by Pierrot. The character designs were wonderful, at first I thought this show is like Golden Time 2.0 because of Nike’s character design being very similar to Koko. The animations were great, facial expressions were splendid.
Music is extremely good. OP and ED were great, the IN is just fantastic. Maeda Rena’s vocals is wonderful during the IN.
It’s just great. The first time I heard this song I was just blown away.
VAs is a great list. Maeda Rena, Shimazaki Nobunaga, Tomokazu Sugita, Kudo Haruka, Sakurai Takehiro, Han Keiko, Namikawa Daisuke, Nomura Kenji, Soumi Yoko, Yokoyama Chisa, Ise Mariya, Kayano Ai, Tomizawa Michie, Terasaki Yuka, Kondo Takayuki, Matsuoka Yuki. They did their job, I absolutely enjoyed Maeda Rena’s voice here, her chemistry with Nobunaga is just great.
Highly recommended for all shoujo lovers out there, this is really something else. I absolutely love it. With that original ending, it kills all hope for an S2, but the 12 eps were worthwhile. I have the urge to keep rewatching it over and over again.
