It warmed my icy, 4chan-corrupted heart.
An interesting idea for a real life situation. The story progresses a little slowly but over all enjoyable.
Great artistry; the water colour appearance gave it a very sweet & calm nature, which perfectly reflects the personality of the child. The basis of the story is a bit odd ... but otherwise would appeal more to younger to much older female crowds. Amusing little moments support the story.
Not what I expected but not bad.

I actually find it very cute! ♥ I want to read the manga or see the next episode.
Love the story, artwork was impressive for the drama theme anime. I would watch future episodes for light entertainment.
I'm definitely interested in the story-line. The Animation is different for what I'm used to. But it is definitely something to watch.
Not for the action crowd, still this show sets it's own pace and the trip well worth it. The added sequence at the end gives a balance to the episode as being the bait to the next episode rather than the usual preview. Well thought out.
provided u like slice-of-life , then this may be the best anime you'll see this year.
There's hardly any story here at all, but as a minimalist attempt to create sympathetic characters, it's very successful. (Not recommended for diabetics, though.)
