Plot Summary: High schooler Natsuo is hopelessly in love with his cheerful and popular teacher, Hina. However, one day at a mixer, he meets a moody girl by the name of Rui and ends up sleeping with her. Soon after, his father announces that he’s getting remarried to a woman with two daughters of her own. And who shows up in tow, other than both Hina and Rui.

First Thoughts: So what happens when you got a crush on someone older than you and they don’t take you seriously and think of you as ‘just a kid’ and the other one you recently had sex with and the end result of that was awkward as hell– and it gets more awkward when his father is planning to re-marry to a woman whose daughters are those exact same girls. Yeah, talk about a mood killer and a boner killer. Granted, melodrama has never been a big turn-on for me and having seen shows like Scum’s Wish and Citrus and those shows are either ‘meh’ to ‘unk’ but yet, this is that type of show that I want to see what happens next. Yeah, the messy drama is the hook of this and I get it even though Natsuo isn’t much to be all that concerned about and the two girls are…. well, they’re alright but not there yet for me.




I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and yes, I realized I added the word ‘unk’. That’s going to be a thing now.
