Akira Tachibana used to be a part of the track and field club, until an injury effectively cut short her sports career. Working part-time at a family restaurant as a recourse, she finds herself falling love with her manager, a divorced 45-year-old man with a young son. Despite the age gap, Akira wholeheartedly embraces his mannerisms and kind nature, and little by little the two begin to understand each other.

For you before you watch
19 March 2018 | by lucasdidonatisSee all my reviews

Okay, 4th review so far. This anime starts off with a 17 year old girl who falls in love with her 45 year old boss. There´s no point on giving out more information and, as you will find out if you keep reading, this didn´t seem to be the main argument of this story.

My philosophy: you can always find something in an anime that you´ve never seen before, and for me that´s enough to make it a worthy watch (which is why i´d never tell anyone not to watch an anime). However, there are some things you need to know before you watch. This anime caught me off guard, it´s not finished yet (only 10 episodes so far), but i think i´ve seen enough to make a helpfull review.

I´m new to this genre, but i decided to give this anime one shot mainly because i wanted to see the outcome of the strange situation that it presents. I must say during first episodes i felt the temptation of leaving it. The opening is awfull, it´s childish and stupid, and doesn´t fit for this anime at all. For the first few episodes i felt disappointed because i guessed there had to be a strong reason for this girl being in love with their boss, and i didn´t like the characters nor the way they were introduced.

Having said that, i´m glad i continued watching. This anime is not only about a young girl loving an old man. It´s about an interesting conception of youth and oldness beyond age itself. It´s about dreams and hopes for the future and the way they can affect us. It´s about friendship and trying to move on when we are in a tough spot. I havent finished this series yet, but i will as soon as the new episodes comes out. The last episodes were amazing, showing extremelly mature reasonings from several characters and a way to percieve the world that stunished me.

The more i watched, the more i liked the characters and it´s development. The sountrack is excelent (the opening doesnt count) and the animation is full of detail aswell. I don´t know how this is going to end, but i must say so far i´m pleased. It´s a 9/10 for me, and if you are into this kind of romance genre, i´m sure you will like it. Specially recomended if you have seen and liked the movie "Garden of Words" (and if you saw this anime but you didn´t see garden of words, waiste no more time and watch it, i consider it to be one of the best romance masterpieces ever crafted). Thanks for reading!
