      “As a child the protagonist enrolled to take part in strict xxxxx lessons by her mother, and soon became known as a a xxxxx prodigy within the xxxxx community. After the death of her mother the protagonist decided to stop playing and live a normal life”

      This basic plot is too familiar.

        Well, I do have a friend that is living in the same plot. But instead of mother, it was her grandmother.

        • The Dark Dudette

          So is their life a Chihayafuru or a Your Life in April? :p

          • Shinigami-kun

            My friend is living her life as normal as possible. Unlike, these protaganists who have turned their back from the art or sports that they’ve excelled due to traumatic experience. My friend is still working as a part swimming instructor. She was a national swimming champion before.

              That is amazing 🙌 I’m glad your pal hasn’t resigned to her past experiences and is leading a normal, happy life 👌

        My thought exactly! I’m beginning to believe that 99.9% of Japan is filled with prodigies.

        • The Dark Dudette

          Yeah. You could think of like half a dozen anime with a plot founded on this basic idea. There is always a child prodigy somewhere . For once, let us see something dealing with the unfortunate and talentless :p

      The cast is excellent, and since Eita and Gakky almost never choose a bad role, this is an instant hit for me.

    • Skai

      Oooh I want to watch this!! I can’t wait for it to release ^^

    • HyperMoot .

      ahaha, the trailer is quite enticing. Looks like there are some cool goofy-funny moments. Will watch

    • Dalooshe

      Screenplay by the person who did Legal High? Boughhtttttttt!!!!! This will be sooo much fun!

    • yamakita

      The plot sounds a bit convoluted, but it has a great cast. Hopefully, it delivers.

      This looks so fun! Gakky is really good in choosing her roles. And I like that she’s venturing into lead comedic performances, she used to be the arm candy, or the classic female protagonist. Granted, her range seems limited and so far she’s mediocre, but at least her filmography is pleasant to watch.
      Eita is just pure joy to watch, such a great actor

      gakki + eita ^^ this is awsome !
