You are the protagonist. Be prepared to feel creepy.
Honestly, I didn’t make it through the four minutes of this first episode. The deal with you being the protagonist is fine, even if it leads to bumpy camera as ‘you’ move around. What isn’t so fine is the lingering camera shot on the girls skirt, the sweeping shot up her body, and the return lingering shot on her chest. They put you in the place of the protagonist and then got you to feel like you were ogling your new high school neighbour. That I probably would have still finished the episode after except, they then break the illusion that the camera is from your point of view by giving you a low angle shot from behind said neighbour suggestively tilting up her skirt. Seriously, if even the people who made this aren’t actually invested in the ‘you are the protagonist’ line then I’m out. Because unless you suddenly, mid-converation, walked around the girl and crouched down behind her, that shot had no point existing.
