My Little Monster Ep. 1 *Spoilers*

I liked it quite a bit! It's funny enough to be a solid romcom, and both characters have loads of room for lots of development. I didn't have the highest expectations, but now I'm really looking forward to it!

Pretty entertaining. Wasn't super amazing, but the show is GORGEOUS and crisp and that alone makes it an entertaining watch. I did get a few literal LOLs out of it though, like Haru's first appearance of just bailing out the window, and his box-disguise. Curious as to where it will go from here since a couple getting together in the very first episode is pretty uncommon. Will definitely keep an eye on it!

Well, that was a pretty entertaining first episode, and I shall certainly keep watching.
There's a strange juxtaposition to Haru. He has the innocence and social skills a young child, but he's actually very intelligent and academically gifted (which seems to annoy Shizuku no end; she puts in all of that effort to be the best, but he can waltz in and, with practically no effort, outdo her. It shows the difference between those who are truly very intelligent, and those who are simply very studious.)

Pretty cool, though

why does shoujo manga always have a shy girl, and an upbeat strong boy? In real life, this would never work out like this.

The boy would always be surrounded by girls, and no one would care about the shy girl (except that one creepy dude, you know the one).

That does seem to happen quite a lot in shoujo (clearly a device to make it more relatable, and most importantly more idealised, to the reader/viewer).
However, neither of those really apply here. Shizuku is not really shy. She doesn't have problems with speaking to people or things like that, she simply doesn't care to speak with and socialize with people. And Haru might be strong and upbeat, but there's a damn good reason he isn't surrounded by girls; that is, he has all the social skills of a feral dog, and intimidates (both intentionally and unintentionally) everyone around him, so that everyone else is perpetually afraid of him (not to mention looking down on him for being, in their eyes, just some delinquent).

I was actually impressed, but I really, really hope it doesn't go the typical love-triangle doramu route or something stupid like that.

If he's "calmed down", like it says at the end of the episode, then the natural progression is for him to start getting flocked by girls

Which will ensue many a cases of jealousy from the bland girl.

no tsundere? check
no childhood friend? check

lets just hope it keeps climbing. up i love delinquent mc type characters and this is great. the girl is likable too so this should be good.

if i read wrong, isnt there another anime like this coming out this fall too? Sukitte li na yo is the title.

Overall, I liked this show a good amount. Gonna stick with this for awhile.

edit: This english title thing is starting to kill me. I can't find any of the discussion topics >:(
