OP Sequence

OP: 「コトノハノオモイ」 (Kotonohanoomoii) by 井上苑子 (Inoue Sonoko)

「五七五系女子」 (Go Nana Go-kei Joshi)
“The 5-7-5 Girl”

What is this darling creature that I spy?
Whose hamster noises do make mine heart weak?
Be this not where men’s henpecked dreams do lie?
Within a maid who smiles but does not speak?

But let us set our sexist jokes aside
And ponder now the art of verse a bit.
Haiku takes love of nature in its stride
While the soul of senryuu is wit.

There’s elegance within 5-7-5
But into English now we must transpose.
Can wordplay keep the short and sweet alive
Or are we better off with just plain prose?

For now those questions all are left quite moot
Because the vital thing is that she’s cute.

    This was a relatively fun and cute anime. I didn’t realize it would only be ~10 minute episodes… and that the animation would be practically non-existent. And the plot and characters don’t seem to have much complexity yet. But it’s undeniably heartwarming to see these two poetry geeks enjoying each other’s company.

    Violets are red, roses are blue, my sides ha mou shindeiru. Camelia’s are crimson, my heart had a boner, please do continue this post format, lest my smile be a goner.

    I seriously hope RandomC writers will consider just doing episodic screenshots like these with little to no writing and just rating the episode according to their overall entertainment value they got out of it.

    Saves me lots of time than watching a whole ~23mins episode only to find out I wasted that allotted time.

      That’s being pretentious. Sometimes your enjoyment may not align with any of the RC writers, what then?

      Format can definitely be experimented with and varied up, though it’s very difficult to deviate from tried and tested. Also, Passerby is pretty exceptional and I think that the rest of us can’t hold a candle to his wit and creativity (and snark).

    Brevity: wit.

    Therefore: nice one.

    Translators botched it,
    Subs for senryuu were big fail,
    Will stick to manga.
