Yukishiro Nanako is a cute, cheerful high school girl with one peculiar trait—instead of verbal communication, she writes senryuu (a type of haiku) poems to relay her thoughts. Together with ex-delinquent Busujima Eiji, they are budding freshmen of the school's Literature Club. Even though Nanako doesn't talk, with the power of senryuu, the adorable pair has no problem enjoying their fun school-life through the tune of 5-7-5 syllables.

Senryuu Girl is about a highschool girl called Nanako that can't arrange her thoughts so she writes in a haiku-style poem. In the literature club, she meets an ex-deliquent Eiji that is a kind soul with a tough appearance.

This anime is all about wholesome romance and beautiful art. There is no drama, no emotional plots (so far), it's all about a wholesome, youthful life of a highschool girl.

The art for me is exceptional, although some people might not like the art style of the eyes, but to each their own. I find that it adds to the cute and innocent vibe of the whole anime.

Although this anime is one of the best "cool down" shows of the season, with extensive cuteness and wholesomeness, it lacks in too many departments to be considered anything more than average or decent!

If you're looking for a revolutionary high school scenario with extensive development and a solid story fueled with both dramatic and comedic moments, turn away now! As a very short series with each episode only being half the length of most; this show lacks all of the above. Although the main female character is unique in a way with her haiku form of communication, this anime falls into most wholesome tropes in read more

Nanako silent
Haiku is her language
Koto’s tits are huge

Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry that is characterized by three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables. In Japan, they utilize sound units known as “on” or morae. This inconsistency can lead to a number of problems in translation, leading some translators to claim that 12 syllables in English equate to the duration of 17 Japanese “on.” Nevertheless, the intent is to capture the essence of a moment in time with a short, poetic composition.

Due to Nanako’s lack of audible communication (for reasons unknown), she relays her thoughts through haiku. Naturally, read more

To be honest, when I heard about Senryuu girl, I didn't think much of it. it just didn't seem like my type of show, and Short-form anime don't always get to develop arcs at a good pace with the 12 minute runtime, so I was ready to pass it off. However, it's worth a shot if you have some extra time and you want a nice rom-com.

The first thing that hits you is how pleasantly simple the style of the show is. Both in art and characters, the show makes it easy to get used to the characters by providing simple backstories and letting the read more
