Love is Like After the Rain EP 1"The Sound of Rain"

That was good despite the age diifference for a romance / SOL

Akira Tachibana who was a good Track Team star who got injured ( looks like A Archilles Heal ) is soft spoken but popular takes a job as a waitress after the mgr was nice to her on a rainy day but she has develpoed a crush on him ( Masami Kondo ) who is divorced / has a son / seems allof but cares even taling notes how to improve himself

Fast Takes

1 Wit Studio did an amazing job with this with their limited history but big titles more like action etc

This was a really good first episode. I think Akira's little crush and the way she acts around Kondo is cute. Kondo also seems like a really nice guy who wouldn't take advantage of a high school girl if he ever found out she was into him. I do wonder how he'll react when she confesses though (it says so in the synopsis).

The scene where he walked in on her sniffing his shirt was hilariously awkward.

The visuals had my eyes dancing in glee! Even though there were some sketchy scenes like:


Calm down Tachibana... I do feel bad for that blonde guy who was hitting on her. He should really lose that habit of talking to someone while looking away from them or closing his eyes during the process.

Captain Gotou is deep undercover in this timeline.


I thought so too! I was wondering what Gotou was doing here. He and the manager should be around the same age, yet the manager looks rather youthful for a 45 year old. It's a bigger stretch, but Tachibana looks like a younger (and taller) version of Kanuka.

Eyebrow raising premise, but so far so good.

I just started the manga and it looks like this was the first three chapters shuffled around a bit.

I'm really torn about this one. The first episode was really well done. But as a man who is about to turn 45, I find the subject matter very uncomfortable. If they actually start a romance I will drop this very quickly.

The more I think about this, the more it feels like a mid-life crisis fantasy. Just buy the sports-car author-sensei...

Six volumes in, I can say it's not what you're thinking.

Ep 1

Some touchy subject matter for sure, but I like the way it's been handled so far. I was surprised how quickly Akira's little crush developed at first, until later in the episode where it was made evident that they do have a bit more of a past that we haven't seen. That's good. I would have preferred watching Akira's feelings develop over time although I'm confident that what we'll get will be entertaining regardless.

Kondou is a bit of a dork, huh? He seems like a really nice and genuine guy though, so Akira could definitely have found herself in a much more precarious situation. I do wish she didn't get so angry about finding out he is divorced or has a son. She's coming off as a bit possessive and I doubt it'll take long for Kondou to catch on to her feelings if he hasn't already. Still, a very solid premiere.

I thought it was really sweet in episode one. The art is beautiful and the way she loves his goofy self is really cute.

Episode 2

The restaurant has a new employee in Yoshizawa, and he is quite enthusiastic about working there, but first he's washing dishes. Akira sure can run to give that customer his smartphone back as she's a former member of the track team. And the keyword there is former because he suffered a pretty gruesome injury six months ago on her right foot with that scar being a reminder of the pain she suffered with the surgery and rehab. But even though she's not sprinting anymore, she did gain some valuable companionship as Kondo is always there for Akira. Those two sure are building up such an unusual relationship between a high school girl and a middle-aged man.

Weird. It seems to have disappeared from CR. I can't find last episode, even.

That's because it was never on CR to begin with. It's on Amazon.

That was lovely. She confessed, but were only at episode 2 so it didn't go they way she thought it would.

I bet the manager knew exactly what Akira meant by "like". I don't mean the like as in appreciating but rather romantic.
