I’m sold. This has the humor which Hayate so noticeably lacked. Also, the more serious parts aren’t bad either. I think everyone can related to growing up and being embarrassed of what they did in the past.
Then, once you grow up a bit more, you realize: who cares? So, kid from Chuunibyou: some girl wants to play witches and warlocks with you, and you’re complaining? Said girl rappels down from the balcony, wears a fake eye patch and has shoes that turn into roller skates, and you don’t want to hang out with her because she’s not normal? What the hell’s wrong with you? If I were in your shoes I would totally hang out with this girl. If the rest of the class doesn’t want to join in it’s their loss.
I’m not sold on the art style yet though, particularly the character’s faces. They have the tiny Denpa Onna / Haganai mouths which I’m not fond of. I’m not sure why this has become a trend, it looks so strange.
