Final Thoughts

At first glance, this show seems like it may be classified as weeb trash. And that’s on purpose; the title and cover are blatant clickbait, which is how I found out about the series; yet, the episode itself is excellent. This show’s art and story are both expertly created to provide a profoundly moving viewing experience. The chemistry between Mai and Sakuta is incredible, and the two of them play off each other brilliantly, making for a truly delightful viewing experience.

We learn a lot about the other characters and the issues they’re facing, too, and see how those issues translate into new skills and transformations for those individuals and their environments.
