Never seen a more realistic and simplistic romance ever
2 November 2017 | by jazibmemonSee all my reviews

Let's get one thing clear, this series is blasphemously underrated and under-watched. It is one of the hidden gems that came out this year. It's heartwarming, soothing, and relatable. The reason behind it is because of its aesthetic simplicity and its mesmerizing realism, it feels relatable and close to heart due to the shyness and awkwardness. These things which are rarely seen in romance series across any medium. The character designs are simple yet interesting, plot is simple yet captivating, story is simple yet heartwarming, animation is simple yet eye-catching, and the soundtrack compliments the emotional and romantic feel of the anime. I have no real criticism for this series as it lays out everything perfectly. There is no extravagant scenery or any breathtaking visuals, but the thing that makes this anime special is faithfulness to real life. I don't think I've been this satisfied from a 12 episode anime ever.
