The story is about Shizuku, a hardworking student who isn’t interested in socializing, finds an unlikely friend, Haru, an emotionally volatile boy at her school.
Shizuku Mizutani is apathetic toward her classmates, only caring about her grades. However, her cold view of life begins to change when she meets Haru Yoshida, a violent troublemaker who stopped attending class after getting into a fight early in the school year. He is not much different from her, though—he too understands little about human nature and does not have any friends. Much to Shizuku’s surprise, he proclaims that she will be his friend and immediately confesses his feelings toward her upon meeting her.
Because of her lack of friends and social interaction, Shizuku has a hard time understanding her relationship with Haru. But slowly, their friendship begins to progress, and she discovers that there is more to Haru than violence. She begins to develop feelings for him, but is unsure what kind of emotions she is experiencing. Together, Shizuku and Haru explore the true nature of their relationship and emotions
I really like it. The first episodes for me are the best! I appreciate an anime when it is entertaining and has intresting characters, so I had a great time watching it. I find though that it ends a bit of a sudden.
That’s the reason you will want to learn what happen next, and you should check the manga too.
