omg this show is perfect just the way that Nishimi and Ritsuko are having a conversation in-focus and Sentaro is just fiddling around out-of-focus in the bg like, spinning in his chair and shit THIS ANIME IS PERFECT
like Ritsuko’s accent is totally proper but even the teacher has some pretty harsh Kyushu-ben showing just how good a girl Ritsuko is BUT WHEN SHE GETS UPSET SHE SPEAKS IN KYUSHU-BEN and and THE DETAILS. THE DETAILLLSSS ;_;
But guys seriously, the direction, THE DIRECTION IS SO GOOD like completely different in terms of pacing and style from the manga, but 100% faithful to the manga simultaneously. Shinichiro Watanabe have my babies plz
