Kyoutarou Ichikawa may look like a shy and reserved middle school student, but deep within his heart is a bloodthirsty killer. His ultimate desire is to see his classmate Anna Yamada's beautiful face writhing in pain before he ends her life. But this fantasy may never come to fruition, as Ichikawa starts to see an entirely different side to Yamada.

Often seeking refuge in the library, Ichikawa frequently runs into Yamada. It is during these encounters that Ichikawa realizes his model classmate is actually an airhead who can never read the room. As they spend more time together, the boy cannot help but feel not only a sense of endearment toward the very girl he wishes to murder but also a desire to protect her at all costs. Is it possible that this sudden change in Ichikawa's perspective could lead to something more?

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
The anime drops its "crazy edgelord chuuni MC who wants to kill everyone" act, the entire gimmick of the series, about 5 minutes into the first episode. From then on, it's just a straightforward story about a niceguy protagonist who totally knows what's best for the hot girl in his class that he's stalking, as she slowly falls in love with him because he's so fucking nice and caring.

It's pretty gross honestly, the show is constantly glorifying creepy, niceguy behavior like obsessing over pretty girls you've never spoken to and deciding to "protect" them from a distance, even if it means secretly following ...

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
This anime has been one of the most refreshing romance stories in anime in a while. I watched Tomo-chan, Kaguya, all the big ones. Even though I have read the manga, I am surprised seeing the subtle growth of Ichi and his seemingly impossible social problems he has to get over.

The animation, sound, character design are all ok. Not amazing but good. Supporting characters are more memorable than most other romance animes, they stand out with their personalities and designs.

This anime shines with the small amount of character progression we see with Ichi. He starts as an edgy, unlikable middle schooler, and in just ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (3/12 eps)
Romantic sort of shows can impact in many different ways, and with the fact there is a lot of them, it makes it harder and harder to stand out among the crowd.This show is different however, taking a different spin on things, but proving to be a bit...Uneasy to watch to boot.

Story and characters: 6
I'm giving this a higher grade, as when you look at the different kind of characters. There is a lot to like about them. They feel like real characters, and naturally flow together. Not to mention Anna is sweet, even if she's a bit careless at times. However, it's not all ...
