Nah man its going to totally be an angsty look at the declining birthrate of Japan. They will look at this school, and see pictures of it once being filled with children. They will then look around and see the town filled with the elderly, and realize that the town is dying.

Actually what we'll start to notice is small clues in each episode through which we slowly discover that, in fact, Hotaru was in a terrible accident, and has been sent off to a psychiatric hospital in the country, where she's observed by that "teacher" as she acts out her emotions through two hand-puppets she's named the Koshigaya sisters.



So a sequel to Yuyushiki fan theory.

If Nom Nom Byori was any cuter, I would break something from squeeing so hard.

Man, that first episode was pretty bad. I decided to watch this since the girls looked cute but ehhh.
It started of with a nice atmosphere and recorder playing which was nice but then they started talking. The voice acting for some of the characters were pretty awful and it was quite random. The pace was also slow as hell.

So, they are in one classroom with varied grade levels...what is this higurashi? They just kept talking about food and whether this was the country or not. Seems very stupid but its not a "holy shit" yet so i will continue watching.

I do wonder if it gets better...

Well, I understand where your coming from, but I am pretty sure you will be disappointed if your going to over analyze this entire show.

Gold... I get the feeling slice of life is not your thing. If you're expecting something dramatic to happen like vampire attacking or one of the girls having a horrible secret that shakes the whole town and ruins the friendship... or mecha being discovered; then you're gonna be horribly disappointed.

It is not unusual in this day and age for their to be one-room schools... it's slightly uncommon but they do exist.

Does it get better? Well... as I said if you're expecting something earth-shaking to happen, then no. It'll suck.

Definitely not Higurashi... It's just cute girls doing cute things. Usually the trope is in a high school setting like Yuyushiki or Kinmoza, but this is closer to Miname-Ke, where they have managed to get cute high school + cute middle school + cute grade school girls all onto one school. You watch this to calm your mind and go "Dawwwwww".

Why is slice of life not my thing? I enjoy many slice of shows, its just this one's first episode was extremely boring. I'm ok with them not doing much, but it would be good if it was slightly entertaining. The pace was horrid and they sat around talking about the country.

^^ that's the plot of this series: daily life of 4 girls at a quite small village. Like Minami-ke or Yuyushiki, the tag for the series is only "slice of life" and nothing else. I don't think anything else will ever happen.

It's the first episode... what did you expect? Did you watch the others?

You ok with this not doing much, but dont want them sitting around (which is not doing much) and talking. lol

What other slice of life shows did you like?

The voice acting was bad for some characters? I thought they all fit pretty well.
Kana Asumi is amazing.
Rie Murakawa and Ayane Sakura were both leads in Vividred Operation so they're good in my books.
Kotori Koiwai is still relatively new but got main roles in Gatchaman Crowds and Crime Edge so she's getting there.

Sigh...im aware its just slice of life, its not like i want a meteor to hit the town and have the girls fend off aliens, its just the portrayal of it was boring and slow. Example, the last couple of minutes they are eating lunch and the 1st grader says to save the dessert until they get to a cherry blossom tree. That scene took like 5 min. and it was just painful to watch. Again,i don't want anything to "happen" but some dialogue would have been nice.


When did i say i don't want them sitting around and talking? I just want it to be entertaining and cute. You know, the reason why we watch this genre? Ill watch the next episode, but the first episode was boring.

Other slice of life anime, i would say YuriYuri, but you might claim the yuri drew me in. I would say Ah! My Goddess but you might claim it had supernatural elements in it. So idk what's dry like this show... Girl's High? That show was at least funny and showed the life of the girls in high school.


Teacher was the main culprit and the 1st grader was guilty by association. It felt so dry and forced but maybe that's what they are going for. It's not like im a wiz in the japanese language, because im not but even i could pick out what sounds off in their tone.
