Webmaster Review

53% Good

Like its predecessor, it was made from a man's perspective. Some viewers may not accept it physiologically. But the drawing is relatively stable and the background is Great for a short animation. You can see it if you don't hate it.

3. Character’s Way of Speaking

Hanasaka Yui not only uses simple honorific expressions such as “です” and “ます” at the end of the word, but also uses humble words like “xxx と申します” in the greeting for moving. Ordinary high school students like her can properly use honorific language, humble language and polite language. Her way of speaking is very polite and very feminine. She looks young, but I hope she can emulate her way of speaking. (Same as the previous work)

Nanahashi Minori speaks in the tone of a lively girl, such as “xxx だね” and “xxx だよ”. She communicates with the main character as if she were a brother and sister. There are many expressions that are often used by families, such as “おはよう” and “いってらっしゃい”. He is a very good character for listening to Japanese because he pronounces it very clearly and clearly.

Amatsuki Mashiro says, “xxx の” and “xxx でしょ” in a distance-inducing tone. Because she didn’t meet the main character very well, she calls him “変態さん” (へんたいさん, MR.PERVERT). It’s set up as a university student who is looking for a job, so there are some scenes where they practice for interviews. In such situations, she uses honorific language, so you can learn how important it is to communicate in Japan.


4. Terms and Talking Contents

Like the previous animation, the audience is the main character’s point of view, so it feels like you are spending time with the character. The good thing about this animation is that you can listen to the lines about ordinary daily life. You can hear realistic tones that are very close to reality.
