Need. More. Mochizou.

Spoiler for Fanart:


Ah, I really love this show. I wish it were 2-cour. Who else has the opening on repeat?

Well, this certainly is a cute lively show. It's not going to win any awards in my book, but it makes for some relaxed light-hearted fun.

Yeah, it's hard to imagine this series having any kind of serious love triangle, unless they move in a different direction than I expect. Probably just a lot of comic frustration for various characters, especially Mochizou (perhaps compounded by this prince the bird is looking a bride for?), but the compensation for Mochizou will be that he'll eventually get his girl--but probably off camera in the future. His awkward fondness for her is in the best anime traditions of shy adolescent romance (his drawer full of presents was a light-hearted counterpart to the poignant box of presents Kou Kitamura kept for Wakaba), and her asking him for a present was... interesting. It might be a throwaway remark for a childhood friend--or, more likely, a bit of boldness so well masked by an innocent-seeming cuteness that it reminded me of Chitanda--and that's before I saw Tamako with her hair down.

I for one appreciate that in its last two series, Kyoani has not given us tedious love triangles, even while giving us fairly well-done romantic plots (especially in Hyouka). With the big cast, and market and school settings, plus fantasy elements, my guess is that there will be little romance beyond the comic touches we saw here in this episode, but it'll be interesting to see how things go.

I think it's the simple and formulaic "The prince and a faraway island, or Mochizou and the shopping district."

Especially when the series focus is on the shopping district, that's a pretty good bet imo.

Ah, but I haven't watched this series yet, which is why I'm here. I'm curious as to what this series is like. Er, I mean I pretty much guessed it has loli's, but I'd appreciate it if anyone can give a basic premise from the 1 or 2 eps out so far. Kind of like, "it has half school, half market settings", or you could threaten me like "watch it for the loli's or face their wrath" or.... well, maybe that's going to far but as it seems to be these days, I've not a lot of time and this forum is my best source for scoping out what's hot and what's cold in the current season

So, let me see if I'm still awake. You're recommending me this series on the basis of a.... bird?

Absolutely. He is the real star of the show so far. But I guess what you truly want to hear is that it has a cute loli, which it does. Fabulous bird + adorable loli is a winning combination.



Watch it or you'll make her cry!



In all seriousness, RRW's digest is pretty accurate. Keep in mind only one episode is out, so we're not completely sure what the series will be about yet.

Pretty much yeah
The bird is what makes the show going from solid to great so far.


Very enjoyable first episode in any case. Really like the setting and the show seems to have a strong cast of characters.
Admittedly, I love shows like this so I might be a touch biased.

I am really liking Midori. I hope she gets a good character development and not just another side character.

I thought this will create hype and a buzz. Seems after episode 1 it was good episode then...nothing. Hope episode 2 picks up.

waiting for episode 2 to see more about this
