Well this show honestly only has one redeeming quality... It's cute as hell. Like honestly the cutest thing you'll ever watch. Allthough it's not the most memorable show you'll ever watch it's pretty funny at times and there isn't a minute where you don't feel the need to let a huge awwww.

Don't get fooled by the romance tag this show gets everywhere though. Cause there is none ^^

Not perfect but as the whole thing is just about 4,5 hours total still worth watching.

Also this Anime has made me question my emotions cause there it made me cry at times by doing nothing exept be ...

Just the epitome of cute girls doing cute things. That's all there is to sum the series up. If you want to watch it for romance or deeper plot, stop.

Never the less, I was in the mood to watch something lighthearted ...

An anime in which literally nothing happens. Supposedly there are some girls, supposedly they have some problems of their own but you don't give a shit about them.

This anime is so slow, tedious and boring that even speeding up and giving the pace of the plot development (which isn't here) a kick doesn't help, although I won't say, it saves a lot of time.
There's no waifu material here, and even the funny French girl who however tries to pull this ...

Who's that Anime Girl with Headphones?

Who's that Anime Girl with Headphones?

Who's that girl, the quiet one avoiding everyone and looking straight ahead? That girl who loves music? That weird girl who loves tech? What was her name again? Until you remember lets just say she is one fabulous anime girl with headphones.
