Tsuki ga Kirei — First Impressions

Two middle schoolers with crushes on each other exchange LINE ids.

Wow, this was a great first episode. Definitely going to be one of my favorites of the season. Perfectly captures the middle school crush— they are embarrassed to even exchange glances with each other. Great attention to detail with the relationships between all the family members as well. I particularly enjoyed the sister accusing the girl of having a boyfriend, and the dad commenting that the girl is cute and trying to hook the boy up.

This is totally my mom every time she meets someone I know who is female.

It reminds me a ton of Hourou Musuko, both visually and in terms of the content and the focus on relationships, as well as the mode of storytelling where very little is stated explicitly. Many of the key scenes in this episode conveyed tons of information without having a single person speak. Does anyone know if some of the people behind this and Hourou Musuko are the same?
