Mix one part Haruhi Suzumiya, one part Clannad and a bazillion-dollar animation budget and you get this show. It gently segues from hilarious comedy to teen romance without the shift in tone feeling jarring or awkward. With KyoAni's usual high-budget animation at work, the imaginary "fight" scenes look fluid and the ordinary slice-of-life scenes are crisp and detailed. The characters are all wacky and likeable with very strong voice work behind them. Overall, an interesting and fun little series with some witty comedy and touching romance that is sure to bring out your inner LARPer.
Watch this if you want to see a teenager court a literal child-minded girl. The humour does not make up for this terrible main romance, just look at the show gifs, it doesn't get any better.
