    First season was fun as WOW!

    They used a a kid for Naru's voice. I think a local kid at that because I think its hard to like master an accent on that level. Animation wise was great. Some 2-s are a bit obvious but that's normal on any anime these days. But not much stills as Naru is HYPER AS FUCK. She also has a loose belt on the back so that's a bit harder to make dynamic. Even so, they still made her hyper which added to the lightness of the episode. And the voice WOW the voice is just LOVABLE! Such pureness in this show. Will definitely watch the next one.

    Naru is embarrassingly adorable. I also enjoy Handa's change of mentality and all that. Fun is beyond accurate.

    Episode 2 came out and it's a bit sad that the pacing for this episode felt rushed. I mean, they could've focused on either but not both Hiroshi/Handa or Hospital scenes a bit more and made the hardwork/talent or Handa x townies flow smoother. Nevertheless, the episode was great with lessons to learn and Handa getting better with the townies. And of course...

    NARU!!! AAA!
