Yeah… this post is a day late, and I apologize. I was out on vacation, and only got back yesterday in time for class. Anwyays… the three-episode rule has long been a standard of the anime industry, making the first three episodes of a show in such a way that they draw in as many viewers as possible. Bunny Girl sticks to this rule… and does it absolutely wonderfully.
It’s been a while since there’s been a good, arc-based show on the roster, and it makes me excited to see another one finally making an appearance. Episode 3 gives us a beautiful ending to the Mai Sakurajima arc of the story, and honestly, making me very curious as to where this show is going next.
My one real hope as this show progresses, is that Mai doesn’t just fade into the background. I would really like for her to stick around, as she’s such a fun character and her dynamic with Sakuta is just awesome to watch. I’m hoping for something akin to the Monogatari series, where as Sakuta goes around fixing other problems caused by Adolescence Syndrome, Mai is there with him, supporting and helping him
Anyways, I have to say, I really do like Sakuta as a character. His ordinarily bland, sarcastic and apathetic personality is really fun, and also makes it far more impactful when he starts to get angry or upset for someone else’s sake. Also, that scene in the courtyard was definitely equal parts heartwarming and cringeworthy.
Anyways, i’m really loving this show, and i’m very excited to see where it’s gonna end up next! I hope everyone is enjoying this show so far this season, and if you don’t have it on your watchlist yet, you should really give it a try! Thank you all so much for reading, and i’ll see you all in the next post!
