This series needs a shorter name, because I never wanna type that again in my life. The English title, Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai, isn’t much better, and to be honest, does not give me much hope for the content of this first episode.
Apparently this is one of those vaguely melancholy teen angst series, which is… better? Than I was hoping? To be honest, I was expecting some pervy harem anime. Which this doesn’t seem to be. That’s nice!
The OST is pretty. It kind of feels like something from a visual novel.
Haha! Good question! What an utterly absurd concept! I’m glad no one exists in this world who would try to encourage that! That would be silly! Haha!
Is popularity actually a thing in high school? It wasn’t really a thing when I went, but its been a few years and I only ever went to the one. It doesn’t really seem the kind of thing you’d tell your boyfriend’s buddy to stop hanging out with him over.
Our leading couple is remarkably mature for anime high school students. Its kind of refreshing? In a quiet moody teenage drama kind of way. They’re rather free of mentionable quirks, which is making their personalities a bit harder to pin down than your usual protagonists, but it fits the tone the series seems to be going for.
Oh, it’s a psychic drama! That’s neat. Also the main character is a smartass and I kind of love him. He looks like Kazuma from KonoSuba which is just. So funny to me.
This first episode was slow paced, but otherwise had good production values and genuinely held my attention. I’ll give it three episodes to see if it manages to keep me from losing interest, but overall I’m enjoying it so far.
