Super cringey show with a nice plot. It was entertaining but it'd have been better if it's a bit more realistic. Overall I enjoyed the show for what it is.

The first few episodes gave me high hopes for this anime to tell a mature, platonic story. Unfortunately, it developed exactly into the creepy grooming portrayed as wholesome love that I hoped it would avoid and condemn. The amount of people praising this anime and its protagonist for their "moral compass", ignoring that he's falling in love with a teenage girl and happily cuddling with her in the room next to her mother and brother, is honestly pretty worrying to me. I also HATE how they "resolved" the other big plot point, [spoiler]the situation with her mom. Both Yoshida and Sayu's brother knew that the mother is abusive and has massive mental health issues, and the best they can do is say "deal with it" to both the mom and Sayu? Sorry, but that's probably the worst thing they could do in this situation.[/spoiler] Overall I enjoyed the animation and most of the writing, but I really disagree morally with the development of both major story arcs.

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
