I don't think it's going to be bad to be honest. People that are bashing this are just those annoyed with the Pet name and the premise(not your case of course).

In another words, pricks that judge stuff without even watching it first.

I do find it interesting how with Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun the female lead can put a collar around the guy and nobody really complained while here there was some backlash with the "pet" name.

I even find the premise a bit similar but with the genders reversed,you've got a serious lead having to interact with a bit of a socially inept "genius"

This will sound stupid but ill be honest.
In Anime or Manga, when ever a girl hits a guy its ''Comedy''
But when its reversed a guy hits a girl its ''abuse and he's a douche''

There was always quite a lot of complaints when ever a Male MC Hits a girl even when the bloody deserve it.

I might be Totally off here, and please Correct me if I'm wrong on this.
If seen this on different Forums when ever it comes to this kind of topic.

It's true. And you just described why I hate most tsunderes in anime. While I do know it's for comedy purposes, if it's too much, it starts to get very annoying.

And you should watch Index

I think this isn't just because of gender, but because of the surrounding context.

You may see situations in anime where a girl character (usually someone close to a male character) says or does something really crazy or uncouth, and the male character gives them a straight chop to the head, which is sort of like "snap out of it!". This could also be shown as the male character grabbing their cheeks and stretching them out. These are sort of recognized comedic reactions and rarely provoke any controversy.

On the other hand, you have the stereotypical "Naru punch" style reaction, where the guy does something perverted or somehow threatens the maiden's purity (whether intentionally or not), and the girl's reaction is to give him an exaggerated comedic punch (usually while screaming either "Ecchi!" or "Hentai!"). This too is a sort of recognized comedic reaction that's supposed to be seen as quid-pro-quo (the guy character gets a view he shouldn't, but in exchange he gets "hurt" (but recovers immediately next scene), so the status quo is preserved). Some people have a problem with this trope, but again it's a recognized comedic reaction.

Reaction to any other sort of violence depends on the context, but any time when there's a perception of a position of power, a person in power (physically) hitting a person with less power (physically) is usually intended to be portrayed in a negative light. Whether someone "deserved it" is always debatable.


Anyway, in this show's case... I think people are a bit quick to judge, but it's to be expected because pitching a female character as a "pet" to be cared for by a guy has some historical baggage. But I think people need to look deeper than that. First, Mashiro is being pitched as a sort of idiot savant, so her failings in a social context are offset in another area. Second, in the end, I suspect our male protagonist will actually be the real "pet" in this series, being led around by the other characters largely against his will (at least at first). I think her being "pet-like" is more of a pretext than an actual proclamation, and they will support each other in the end. But, of course, time will tell -- most of all, people need to wait and see.

That makes me wonder, if our main girl can't even be bothered to put on underwear, what's keeping her from not putting on clothes at all and just have all her clothes be painted on?

If her 'owner' would be able to resist that, he'd either be a eunuch or gay.

Probably not because he's gay or something, but it's common trope in most anime nowadays where the male leads have tendency to resist to the end against sweet temptation even though their sanity had almost given up (except if they're pervert or sukemen)

Lets be honest here guys- how many of you would actually jump at the first chance to force yourself on a helpless innocent girl in her own room?


...Other than SaintessHeart I mean.

I can say without a doubt in my mind that I would never do that.
I was taught to respect women.

It might just be me, but the lighting and choice of coloring for this series, especially during the sunset scenes, just screams toradora to me

^ How do I say this... Well this pic reminds of one of those scenes when the MC realizes "I love her" or something like that.
