One day in his home, a yakuza member – Nitta – stumbles upon the super-powered alien girl – Hina. With nowhere else to go, Hina relies on Nitta to take care of her. To avoid the public eyes, Nitta forbids Hina from using her powers in public. But trouble strikes when Nitta is forced to raid an enemy gang’s hideout all by himself as punishment, essentially a death sentence. Hina realises the threat Nitta faces, and uses her psychic powers to help him. Thus ensuing the father-daughter like relationship between the two.
There’s a lot about this anime that I liked, especially pertaining to its style of humour. The jokes aren’t excessive, and in fact were in quite the monotonous fashion, yet had great delivery and impact. There’s all sorts of quirky gags and ridiculous moments to keep the show entertaining and hilarious. Even the characters were entertaining to follow. Some radiated charisma, some were quiet, some were wise, yet they were all funny and impactful in their own various ways. This anime is light, but with enough substance to keep you invested and most importantly, entertained.
So… Yeah. That’s all I got. Was that enough? I’m trying to figure out if my longer reviews are worth reading, or if the shorter and more concise ones are better. I feel like long tends to get convoluted, distracts people from my main points and most importantly, looks like a chore to read (even when I proofread). So yeah, if you did read, please do let me know if you think my shorter or longer ones were better. Hope you watch Hinamatsuri! Thanks for reading!
P.s. I need a better way of attaching related photos…
