Graphics Rating: 4/5
Plot Rating: 4/5
Opinion: Graphics are really great. Pretty unique with a Josei feel. The girl i drawn in a way that makes her feel really grown up. It’s a refreshing main character for sure.
I love this. It is so damn cute. The basic plot is ploddingly filled with tropes. Unoriginal as far as basic plot goes… BUT! The heroine is so damn likeable and you can really empathize with her. She remains optimistic, but not TOO optimistic. And the best part is watching her comes to terms with her first love. It’s so terrifying and I think it is captured really well in this series.
Highly recommend if you are looking for something sweet, low on drama, high on character development.
If you are looking for something exciting and new this isn’t going to scratch that itch!
Final Rating: 4/5
