In order to pursue her dream of bringing positive changes to Japan, Mitsumi Iwakura leaves her countryside town to attend a prestigious high school in the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. As she has already mapped a clear life plan, she has absolute confidence that there will be zero mishaps from then onwards.

Despite her ambitious promise, the country girl ends up running late on the first day when she gets lost on her way to school. Fortunately, she meets a fellow first-year student, Sousuke Shima, who is in the same situation and offers to go with her. They eventually make it to school, but the misfortunes do not end there, as Mitsumi leaves an unfavorable first impression in front of her classmates.

Nevertheless, the class soon takes notice of her friendship with Sousuke despite their opposing personalities. Only time will tell whether Mitsumi will be able to forge fruitful relationships with her classmates, and she will certainly not be alone.

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
I rarely write preliminary reviews but I just have to this time. This anime is freakin perfect. I don't have much to say right now but I will say what I can. The cast is perfect. They all have their own biases towards other students. They act like real high school kids. With their prejudices and emotions swirling around in their head, both raging and calm. The main cast of characters have faults, secrets and depth. Clearly more to see beyond the surface. This is certainly more certain for some than others, but I am sure we will see layers peeled back as the season ...

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
It just keeps getting better with each episode. The characters all have this authentic feel to them which is oh so rare, as a SOL's bread and butter is its characters after all. The show's overall wholesome vibe is not monotonous as it does not shy away from the sides of people that are not as likable, but its tone is that of kindness and optimism that makes it so enriching (I cannot stop smiling as I watch it).
It would be putting it lightly if I said that I was simply hooked, I am enamored (must stop myself from jumping to the manga).
It seems ...

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
Ever gifted someone a box of chocolates that made them very happy, till they realised it was a box of roulette. That is school life encapsulated within a sentence. Now if a total stranger were to randomly gift you such a box, I need not tell you how much more warned you should be. To sum up, that then will be school life in a big, unknown City. As you open each shiny new wrapper, all of them equally appealing, you can never be sure whether it'll be sweet or something that gives you a crash course on six paths of torment, unless you experience ...
