When Chickening Out Actually Involves A Chicken: My Little Monster Anime Review

My little monster


Impassive girl meets trouble maker in a brand new love story! After Mizutani Shizuku, a girl whose sole interest is studying, is asked to deliver some handouts to Yoshida Haru, a boy who hasn’t come to school after spilling blood on the first day, she finds herself the target of his affection. This is a story about a boy and a girl who struggle with love and friendship. Opening yourself up to other people forces you to be honest with yourself.



This anime by far is one the most straightforward I have seen in a while, but even with it being so frank at times it actually leads to even more complication. The protagonists are both cleless to love and approach in one of 2 ways, full speed or with as much caution as possible. Mizutani Shizuku revels in the innocence of never have experienced any kind of relationship, be it platonic or not. Yoshida Haru has a boyish charm which is completely opposite of his female counterpart  but the 2 seem to generate a profound relationship that most people can relate too. Nagoya is the best comic relief even without having any lines since he is a chicken. The animation is bright and uses a vivid palette of color. While the music leaves something to be improved. I did enjoy the art styling, and the characters were memorable. Unfortunately the series appears to be cut short in hopes of returning for a second season but that has been yet to be determined upon the publishing of this article.

This anime gives its’ love confession right from the get go and get 3 dashes of battle out of 5
