Synopsis

College student Miyako Hoshino is quite shy around other people. She mostly spends her time in her room making cosplay outfits. When her fifth-grade sister Hinata brings her classmate Hana Shirosaki home, Miyako instantly becomes captivated with Hana's cuteness. Miyako tries to do various things, ranging from making Hana wear cosplay dresses to giving her sweets. This gives Hana a bad impression of her at first, but Miyako will do anything to grow closer to the angel who has descended before her. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

Given the recent trend of age gap yuri pairings, it’s almost natural to expect Wataten to follow the same pattern. Even more so when one considers that the most recent version before this was just a season before and also was done by the same studio. But while many of the other age gap shows play up the creepiness of the actions either for horror or humor, Wataten is able to take a more nuanced take on what is happening.

First things first, I can understand why it can be somewhat uncomfortable for audiences to watch the main character so obviously have a crush on a girl who is much younger than her, as well as see the ways that she expresses that love, but I would also implore them to hear the show out and top watch the whole think before coming to a quick judgement. While some of the actions that Miyako takes are sketchy, I don’t think that is a fully accurate description of her character. While the maid in UzaMaid had her sole purpose defined by loving lolis, Miyako doesn’t. Not only is Hana her first love, which hit her like a truck hits a poor helpless soon to be isekai protagonist, but she also exhibits other passions mainly clothing and fashion design, along with more okatu like interests. Her interest in Hana is just one piece of the puzzle, and one part of her whole character.

She also is a sufferer of social anxiety and has troubles being in crowds, going outside, or interacting with those that are outside of her comfort zone. In a way her smittenness with Hana is able to override that fear and is able to get her to reach out for once, which is ultimately good for her growing as a character. The show does a good job of showing her condition and how much it ends up effecting her. The ability to just interact with others is a struggle for her and it’s clear just watching her through out the 12 episodes. With desires, flaws and all Miyako is a complete character, and is a quite developed one at that. She manages to grow throughout the season and is able to be more than just an age gap joke. And that’s what I think is so important. As unsavorable as it may be to some, often times love happens out of nowhere for reasons that are hard to understand. And it hits Miyako herself. But Miyako is more than that. She is a real person with real struggles and desires and all of that. She is able to provide the nuance that is needed by being a complete character. I also have to add that despite some of Hana’s more weird quirks Miyako is willing to accept them and enjoy Hana for who she is rather than protecting the image of an angel onto her. She isn’t there just for that image, but rather for Hana herself.

Furthemore while some of her actions are suspect, there are a lot of her actions that are wonderful. She is a great sister to Hinata, and even before Hana was in the picture she doted on her and gave her all the love that one can really hope from their big sister. Even with Hana and the other girls in the picture, she acts like a big sister to all of them. She bonds with them, she plays with them, and often she tries to help them with whatever they’re trying to do. And as the show goes on, the more things she does to try to help them out. She is a good sister to them and she is a good friend. And it may seem weird to some, friends don’t have to be age restricted. Despite the difference in age there is a true bond there which is very enjoyable to see.

I talked a lot about Miyako which makes sense given her focus in the show, however she is far from the only great character in the show. The main cast is a lot of joy to watch and each of them have their own interesting quirks. While Hana can be quite angelic in her appearance and demeanor, she has her own weird quirks and odd things she likes that makes her interesting and goes against that grain. Noa loves herself and attention but actually despite that she is a really good friend and is the most aware of what is going on out of the whole cast, even Miyako at times. And while she is not afraid to use what she knows to her advantage, she also uses what she knows to try to make the rest of the cast happier and get them to the conclusion that they wouldn’t be able to get to without pushing. Hinata is a genki-girl that loves her sister a whole lot, and to be fair she is the simplest of the cast. She basically tries to make everyone happy while also trying to be with her big sister as much as she can.

As one may expect from a Dogo Kobo show the art style is fantastic and really brings out the cuteness of the show. The animation is great and the music is also quite nice. While there can be a few corners cut here and there the general art style is so strong and cute that it is able to more than make up for it.

Overall these good production values along with the wonderful characters and the growth they have both as people as towards each other makes this a great enjoyable watch, and one that provides the nuance that I hoped to see in it. And while it is able to hit all of the things that one would hope for a CGDCT I’m glad that it was able to use it’s premise and unique traits well to separate it from the pack. It’s not my favorite CGDCT but is a welcome addition to the list of CGDCT that I really enjoyed and would heartily recommend.

When you see this show, 2 things come to mind: The feelings of Yuru Yuri once again (since this is mainly a Shoujo Ai series), and the one of the veteran studios of CGDCT-based anime adaptations, Doga Kobo, back at it again from the similar but decent UzaMaid last season. That doesn't mean that this has the same quality and presentation as UzaMaid, but it is definitely leaps better. And props to director Daisuke Hiramaki for his debut (overall) directing of Wataten. You know it when it's a 4-koma adaptation, so don't expect any kind of streamlined story or plot, or rather, plot points *mmm*. The lesbian "romance" starts off with the main lead, university/college student Miyako Hoshino. Being a shut-in for most of her life, she is the equivalent of a NEET, just taking into consideration for her growing-up years of chuunibyou-esque habits of cosplay, and avoid human contact as much as she can. Once the 5 elementary students drop at her sights one-by-one, her life gets better and better, with a bombarding effect. And no, before you ask, she's not a pedo, just a pure lolicon. We start off with the loli. Hana Shirosaki, the "angel" to Miyako, introduced by her younger sister Hinata. You know the expression "Love at First Sight"? That's how fast Hana is sold towards Miyako's sight (or Mya-nee as Hinata nicknames), free to exploit for her insane pleasures of cosplay. Surprisingly, for an elementary school girl, Hana is rather smart and mature for her age, unlike the other girls (plus Hinata) that we'll see later. But like any other school girls her age, even she is not spared from sweet stuff, as Mya-nee also knows how to entice her with her cooking! So an exchange made for Mya-nee's cooking against Hana's (and occasionally with the other girls) tolerance for Miyako to do her "petting love" stuff. Tit for tat, perhaps! Hinata on the other hand, like any sibling would love their own, is always attached to Mya-nee, in the most of energetic ways. What a powerful young siscon. Next, the trio of Noa Himesaka, and class reps Koyori Tanemura and Kanon Konomori! Noa reminds me much of Gabriel DropOut's Satania, in terms of incompetent "superiority" issues, other than her constant call for attention towards Miyako to see her "superior" beauty in comparison to Hana (but of course you know who wins, each and everytime). Moving into the residence beside both Hinata and Miyako's home, the first impressions always hit the hardest, and her self-cosplay immediately attracts her blackmailing call, oh wow. On the other hand, it is a regret that both Koyori and Kanon only get a small amount of mentions and screentime (due to their involvement in the OP) as the trio's (Hinata, Hana and Noa) classmates, and speaking of short appearances, the mothers of Hinata-Miyako, Noa and Koko. Speaking of Koko (or Matsumoto as we know her better), she was once together with Miyako in the same class in high school, but for some reason, due to her NEET-like status, she doesn't remember her much. Despite all odds, she literally is constantly fixing her sights onto Miyako like a stalker since high school (the same way UzaMaid portrays Midori's obsessions towards Kamoi after their time in the JASDF). Scary much, but luckily it's all for comic relief. Overall, a great use of character cast to flesh out their personalities and also dat sweet, sweet build of relationship bridges. The seiyuu cast for the 5 girls are great, with both veterans and newbies alike. Olivia from Asobi Asobase comes back to voice Mya-nee's younger sister, not to mention that the main girl Hana is voiced by a newbie (Maria Sashide) as her debut role! Absolutely impressive VA, and hope to hear more from her too. Since it is Doga Kobo, it is no surprise that I don't feel the need to mention how good the art and animation looks like in here. Pastel-coloured-like art and simple buPlt excellent animation all around. The character design (I feel) is one of the best traits to remember this anime, as it is done by Hiromi Nakagawa, who was the chief animation director for the original Umaru-chan and Rewrite Season 2. This is his first attempt at character designing, and I dare say he pulled off an impressive job just taking the 4-koma manga as references and displaying in pure animation. On the music side, I can't say it impresses as it is very minimal, even factoring in the OST. Sure the OP and ED sounds good and looks fine, but when compared to UzaMaid, it has the same degree of energy and generic feel. But good points given for trying to portray the OP with the eventual reveal of the entire character cast (except Matsumoto of course). While this season isn't a haven for CGDCT based series (Endro~! and this series), I'd still agree that if you need a relaxing watch to satisfy your loli hunger, this is one series that I can wholeheartedly recommend, not just for the Yuri relations, but just for enjoyment alone. With that said, this anime had a lot of firsts for the production staff, so I'd say a job well done, and we're anticipating more.
