Synopsis

To the students of Karai High School, Nanako Yukishiro is a pretty, calm, and cute 16-year-old. However, Nanako is no ordinary girl, as she cannot speak! Instead, Nanako communicates through senryuu—17-syllable-long poems. Sixteen-year-old Eiji Busujima used to be delinquent in his middle school years. However, he has since turned over a new leaf due to his newfound love of senryuu. Despite his menacing looks, Eiji gets along well with Nanako as a fellow member of the Literature Club. Even though Nanako is mute, the adorable pair have no problem communicating with each other. Senryuu Shoujo is a light and relaxing story of two teenagers' daily lives. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

It is difficult to find entertainment that follow a structured routine and manages to remain fresh and entertaining after extended periods of time. Senryuu Shoujo is an exception that is constituted in a simple manner and still manages to impact the reader powerfully, which results in a perfect read to relax. During the initial viewing of the anime, the anime featured one-dimensional characters with some graceful moments. The manga offers a higher quality despite its equally simple design.

The story essentially revolves around the daily life of high schoolers who are partaking in events occurring in their “Lit Club”. The story is the weak link because the aim of the work is not to convey a compelling story. Events that are prevalent in the work accomplishes its goal of constituting heartwarming emotions and a feeling of fluffiness. Senryuu Shoujo lacks progression during the majority of its run but manages to cover its flaw with interactions among the characters. In contrary to first impressions, despite the time required, development is existent. The earlier is confirmed by making a comparison to the vibes the work exudes during later chapters, compared to the first.

The characters stand out in this work more than many others. The author has a tendency to introduce characters that add to the abundance of the existing cast. The strength of this work is how new characters receive development to make them unique and feel no less than previously existing characters. It’s difficult to describe how much characters fit in the show after their debut because of the manner they are relevant to the chapters. In most cases, new characters appear for a few chapters, receive minor development and have their existence are almost retracted as their presence becomes ceased.

In Senryuu Shoujo, characters who make their debut remain relevant for the rest of the ride. Their appearance is inevitable and they don’t feel one-dimensional. It feels empty without them and chapters depicting bits of their daily lives are entertaining because of an emotion of wanting to know how their lives unfold.

In spite of the excellent development the characters receive and the relevance to the story they carry, there are certain flaws regarding them that need to be addressed. The weight of the development is not evenly distributed, resulting in a few underdeveloped characters. This flaw is not that empowering because those characters receive scant developement and still exude the vibe of pertaining to the main cast.

The first change that was recognized from an anime watcher is the improvement in the artstyle. The characters look more beautiful and accurately match the depictions exclaimed by characters in the anime show. Nanako is considered to be a beauty but the anime does not do that claim justice as her design is mediocre, leading to a contradiction. In contrast to the anime, the manga manages to present excellent looking characters and even offers artwork of aforementioned characters at the start of every chapter.

Senryuu Shoujo is an excellent source of entertainment for individuals who are interested in experiencing heartwarming emotions regularly without major signs of becoming repetitive. Regardless of a simple narrative, the work consistently succeeds to shape heartwarming moments through the means of simplistic measures. The entertainment value in Senryuu Shoujo is high and has a possibility to compel you into binge reading it. You can also free Senryuu Shoujo anime watch online and free anime download.

Spring is usually my favorite season every year. It usually consists of heavy hitters of popular franchises as well as new adaptations that generates a great deal of hype. This year though, we have an unusual amount of short series that runs half the length. Unfortunately, most of these shorts fell flat and limited themselves with low expectations. However, there are two shows this season that managed to break that limit. One of them is this curious little thing called Senryuu Shoujo. I love the manga. It recently reached its 100th chapter milestone and being a short length show actually helps make the story flow better. The story premise itself is simple that stars Yukishiro Nanako as the main female protagonist. An easy trait to notice about Nanako is that she doesn’t communicate verbally with others. Instead, she expresses her language in the form of haikyu, a form of poem. What it comes down to it, Senryuu Shoujo manages to captivate me with its charming cast of characters. Nanako’s personality is that of a friendly girl who is very open minded and willing to accept anyone as a friend, including ex-delinquent Eiji. Throughout the series, Eiji is portrayed as a misunderstood person by others because of his intimidating appearance. As members of the Literature Club, we get an inside look at their relationship. There’s many running gags between the two but at the end of the day, it’s shown that they greatly care about each other. Or perhaps it’s more than what it seems. Someone as dense as Eiji doesn’t realize Nanako’s feelings for him. As a slice a life comedy, this anime is filled humorous moments. It never ceases opportunities to poke fun of their relationship. At its very best, we can see their true personalities behind their outer shell. Meanwhile, we do have other characters such as Literature Club president Amane Katagari. A running gag in the show is how she tries to get Eiji and Nanako together for alone time. Similarly, Eiji’s childhood Koto Ootsuki loves to tease the duo whenever she gets the chance. It makes time to always sell humor so the audience remains entertained. This also extends to fortune teller Tao Hankai who is well known for her bizarre personality. I think by the time we are introduced to the majority of the cast, there’s always someone to keep an eye on. The only character I felt underwhelmed would be Kino, another girl who communicates non-verbally. Unlike Nanako, she is too timid and lacks presence. Even when an episode focuses more on her than others, it feels like she’s invisible. I personally think Kino is a poor’s man version of Nanako for being unable to develop character chemistry with the other cast. It’s a shame. At its core, Senryuu Shoujo is an easy going slice of life anime that relies a lot on its character chemistry than storytelling. It doesn’t and shouldn’t take anyone to think about what this anime means with each episode. Come to think of it, the comedy itself often feels very direct with even more characters getting their own moments of fame. This includes Nanako’s father with his own misunderstood fantasies or Eiji’s denseness. There will definitely be an audience who will find this type of humor to be childish and poorly executed. But hey, that’s the ball in your court. This is actually Connect’s first TV short if you don’t count their previous net anime projects. The overall colorful visuals delivers a great look to the series’ themes. I was cautiously optimistic at first after seeing the preview videos but as more episodes aired, the show proved itself to be visual fest. Studio Connect managed to capture the school life setting with a feeling of serenity. In the meantime, character designs are carefully made with care to match the look of the manga. The most noticeable characters are Nanako and Eiji for their very contrasting designs but anyone who lay eyes on them the first time should easily see how well they match their personalities. Character expressions is also an important feature that manages to communicate characters’ feelings. And for any fans who wants to be serviced, there’s moments of that too including the unavoidable swimsuit episode. There’s something here for anyone who is a fan of slice of life. I admit that shorts aren’t really my favorite type of anime. Most often, they suffer from story development based on the amount of content. However, Senryu Shoujo never relies on storytelling to be special. Instead, it has these creative circle of characters that’s here to steal the spotlight. I recommend giving the manga a chance for first time viewers as the anime doesn’t adapt chronically with its flow. But once you start to get into the flow, you’ll want more and more.
