  • I was really worried after the previous episode but I’m glad it worked out. As much as I hate Tobias and think he should have called off the engagement sooner (because Dahlia definitely wouldn’t have) at least he stopped it before things got really messy. I don’t think he’s necessarily a bad person, just incredibly stupid, with an inferiority complex and lacking a spine. I’ve unfortunately seen that archetype before irl multiple times.

    Apart from that, I want to mention that this is what good worldbuilding looks like. You’d think the legal process would be boring to watch but it was actually really well done because it accomplished multiple goals. It showed the structure of how civil matters are handled, it showed Dahlia being careful and showed that she’s surrounded by plenty of supporters. It also worked as one more push to get her to be more true to herself.

    I’m definitely going to pick up the source material once the anime is done airing.

  • That’s a lot of katakana.

    The pacing is terrible. All it has so far is gorgeous art. The world building does seem a bit interesting so I wonder if reading the source material would be a better experience. The main plot also seems like a good premise for a story. I’ll watch a bit more but it’s very likely that I’m going to just drop it and grab the source material before deciding if this is worth watching/reading fully.

  • This whole anime is calling me out.

    I spent most of my life not knowing who I was because I was hyper vigilant of the people around me and kept adjusting my personality to be “socially acceptable.”

    This is how you punish honesty. I am unfortunately really good at lying, but it’s still exhausting. I just can’t comprehend why people can’t just let people be “weird.” Why is conformity such a big deal anyway. Who gives a shit.

    This anime may have gotten me a little worked up with unpleasant memories. Still, it’s cute and I love it and I want moar.

  • I was worried at first but it seems like this show is actually pretty well written. Whether it gets better or worse remains to be seen but the first episode makes me think that it’s going to be good. I mean, it’s not exactly a high bar to clear but the representation was done right imo at the very start so I’m optimistic. I can see the internalized transphobia, and Makoto isn’t being fetishized or being made the butt of the joke. I think I’m going to end up getting attached to the main cast.
