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.

Deeper story than just romance - Amazing 10/10 - Just try it!
16 March 2018 | by allaboutyourtreesSee all my reviews

I stumbled upon this one in amazon Prime and can't recommend it enough. The topic of loving someone older/younger than you is a sensitive subject, but most of us have had crushes on teachers or bosses at one point or another so its easily relatable for most of us I would say. It is handled with innocence and well just perfectly (this isn't a trashy anime). The underlying theme is of dreams and what happens when we give up on them (I won't go into details of those hopes/dreams to be spoiler free). Akira and Mr. Kondo are both dealing with loss of hope or loss of dreams. Mr. Kondo is awakened to possibilities (brought back to life you might say) by Akira's reminding him of what it felt like to be young. The romance/friendship is sweet and innocent and just makes me laugh. The writing and voice acting are just out of this world good! Maybe its just the time in my life and this is the story I needed to experience right now (a small theme in one of the episodes btw) but I haven't enjoyed an anime quite this much in a while. I'm currently 10 episodes in and absolutely enthralled! Highly recommended for anyone who has had dreams that weren't realized or love that you just couldn't get out of your head. Oh the music and art are amazing and really do amazing things to my heart strings. Try it! Yes I'm an older dude who likes anime. Sue me. Japanese anime culture is just fascinating to me.
