Consensus Points

  • Good premise

  • The first half of episode one catches the eye

  • Haruka is a good protagonist

  • Decent music

  • Fails to deliver on initial promise

  • Manabe has no depth

  • Other characters are hit-and-miss

  • Lacks focus

  • Unable to balance drama and comedy

  • Shoehorns in typical high school anime tropes

  • Forced 'plot' in the final third that falls flat

  • Haruka's pedo grandpa is pure cringe
