It’s the kind of show which won’t last long in the memories of anime viewers, the kind of show that will have come and gone. Certainly not the kind of show that would result in a long post from me explaining how it relates to other anime.
And yet, Nozomu’s little stunt, where she consciously tries to achieve the “toast-in-mouth-late-for-school” look is endearing. The last time I saw such conscious pandering with this very specific method was episode 26 of a certain show.
I don’t think it’s at all a mistake that this girl with the seemingly emotionless voice would be trying to imitate the most famous emotionless girl of all.
