Graphics Rating: 3/5
Plot Rating: 3/5
Opinion: I’ve been enjoying this series but it doesn’t seem to live up to the hype the different sub-genres bring.
Art is really straight forward and “cute”. Both guys and gals have this cute sparkly look about them. But the art is really polished and done well.
With the characters and the setup it feels like this series had so much potential but it feels really vanilla. The main character is so boring constantly pushed by the whims by the two lead males. She isn’t a pushover, but far from a strong heroine. There isn’t really anything about the heroine that makes her stand out or relatable.
All of that out in the open, it’s still a decent shoujo series. If you want an interesting cohabitation series with a lot less drama than most this is up your alley!
Final Rating: 3/5
