Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai episode 11 review - While this episode is definitely focused on Kaede, it doesn't do this to the exclusion of the other stories bubbling away.

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai Episode 9 Review: Mai's in it again, but this time the source of her problems is her younger half-sister who for whatever reason is now in her body. And just when Sakuta was looking forward to going to school with Mai.
Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai Episode 8 Review: Time and time again I think about how great Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai has been.

The weirdly compelling first episode of Bunny Girl Senpai turned out not to just be a fluke as episode 2 delves further into the weird mystery of Adolescent Syndrome and the growing relationship (not quite sure what relationship) between Sakuta and Mai. It's a pretty fascinating journey so far even as it remain strictly low … Continue reading Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai Episode 2: When Life Makes You Disappear
