Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai – Episode 3

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!

  1. No apology is necessary at all ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š Hope you had a good vacation!
    I was pretty surprised at seeing this arc end already, and like you I am very curious wehre the show will go from here. Hopefully Mai isnโ€™t going to go away like you said, because I think she is an incredibly wonderful and heartwarming character ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. This was a solid opening arc and while I’m a little worried about the next arc holding up to it, this anime has definitely left an impression so far this season and I am looking forward to seeing what it does next. Like you, I am hoping that Mai sticks around though and isn’t just sidelined now that her case is solved.

      1. Some people found the solution a little silly and sure, from a reality point of view it probably was. However, I liked how it dealt with the characters and how Sakuta came to the conclusion to try to fight the school’s atmosphere. I thought it was quite a good arc for him as a character and silly or not, the conclusion to the story works. I’m also hoping they manage to do something just as good for the next arc but we will see.

      2. I think part of the appeal for me was the fact that the solution WAS so ridiculous. I found myself cringing as much as i was enjoying it… but it totally works for the character of Sakuta. He’s not very creative on his own, and tends to jump to conclusions pretty fast, tending to take the most drastic solution to solving a problem, i.e. chugging energy drinks to stay awake for days on end.

    1. it’s definitely feeling pretty fresh, a lot better than the typical self-insert protag who just happens to find himself in ecchi situations at every turn. I can really relate to the guy and his somewhat stupid, sarcastic self.
