Leading up to its premiere, most of the chatter around this ~problematic shoujo~ adaptation was about its central relationship between a 15-year-old girl and her 26-year-old guardian. Now that the first episode is out, however, I can’t really see that happening. Not because it depicted the material in a nuanced or sensitive way, but because it was so dreadfully, agonizingly boring that I don’t imagine much of anyone is going to bother watching anything more.
Fall 2023 is starting capably and comfortably enough: gifting us some over-competent girls with swords and some Nice Anime Dads with gardening skills.
