Shin, a boy in high school, meets a mysterious girl, Noe, and tries to understand her while also dealing with two other girls in his life.
I was very impressed with this episode. I wasnâ€™t really quite sure what to think about this show going into it, but really I see no problem with the show from just watching the first episode. The characters are interesting and the overall mood and feel of the sow seems really different form a lot of other romance shows. There seemed to be a lot of people who pretty much dismissed this show from the beginning, and Iâ€™m not sure why. It does look like a little ways down the road the show will get very emotional and heavy on feelings and so forth but it doesnâ€™t seem like it will be in a bad way.
The characters really seem to be whatâ€™s interesting the most. On one hand they fit into generic character types such as school idol, childhood friend (I think Ai is) and then a very odd girl. However while the fit into those positions; they have other traits that really make them quite different. Living with the idol but having her be closed off and a loner, the childhood already involved with someone else, and the weird girl who talks about some very emotionally heavy subjects. Iâ€™m not quite sure as to what roles everyone will play. If I had to guess Iâ€™d say Noe would be the one heâ€™d end up with, but the other girls have some very interesting stories too. Ai seems to have some kind o feelings for the guy I think, and Hiromiâ€™s story in general seems like it will be interesting. All that plus the fact that Noe isnâ€™t weird solely in a funny way, it could have some important implications in the kind of emotions and feelings go along with her.
Overall this episode really drew me into the series. I donâ€™t know what some other people were saying when they dismissed this before even watching it or just after the first show because really the unique character perspectives make it very interesting.
