After a mostly positive beginning this anime decided to take the easy and well travelled option in its post credits scene. Is this enough to make you stay or are you going to drop?
I was actually kind of enjoying this episode. It is pretty cliche and ordinary, though neither characteristic is a definite deal breaker provided they do it well, and the meeting of Tada and Teresa is actually kind of reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn type movies. I quite enjoyed watching these two and Tada’s careful indifference to Teresa even while he is clearly kind of fascinated as well as her over the top enthusiasm for Japanese culture as seen through TV.
If the episode had ended on the reveal that Teresa was going to be staying in the hotel next door to the coffee shop, that would have been pretty reasonable all around. Nothing exceptional, but perfectly watchable as a first episode and set up. But then the anime decides it needs one more zing in its story. Post credits reveal and here it comes.
Yep, she’s enrolling at his school and into his class. Because… why not? It isn’t as though seven thousand other shows haven’t already done it and clearly just living next door to each other doesn’t give the writers enough to work with. Honestly, this reveal as pointless as it was just made me want to drop the show on the spot, however I’ll probably give this another episode and if it doesn’t do something actually interesting with this set up I’m going to let it go.
Thanks for reading.
