at first glance, it is another harem (1 guy, many girls) anime. but for once finally(!) it is more than meets the eyes !! it warmed my heart greatly as the girl who lack of confident slowly gained love n support of friendship n family. romance is only minimally included. for a 24 episode anime to be Interesting n not boring, this is a Huge recommendation. definitely worth a catch if you have the time ..
the world is beautiful,
even when they are filled with sadness n tears,
open your eyes.
do what you wish to do, become what you want to be,
make friends, don't rush,
n take your time in becoming an adult.
