Chika Homura begins her high school career with a goal: to develop a "cute girl" persona. After quitting the volleyball team despite her all-star status, Chika decides to join her school's underrated Wind Instrument Club and play the flute, believing it to be the most delicate and feminine instrument. For the first time in nine years, Chika reunites with her childhood friend and total opposite, Haruta Kamijou. Unfortunately for Chika, Haruta is not fooled by her efforts to become more endearing. But this does not deter Chika, and she develops a crush on the band instructor, Shinjirou Kusakabe—but so does Haruta!

However, Chika's high school life just won't go according to plan, as mysteries begin appearing around her and her friends. The club members must work together to solve the mysteries plaguing the school, all while trying to find more members to compete in musical competitions.

HaruChika is many things - a story full of mysteries, drama, music, hope, love, but most importantly, it's a story of the youth. It is quite.. confusing, at first. I mean, the synopsis says it's simply a story about a love triangle in a school band.. right? Well, it's not quite.. that. We do get a love triangle, but ...

Mixed Feelings
I do not want to give this anime anymore coverage than it needs to have. Talk about a chore that this anime way to get through. I honestly felt that I when I binged this last week, yes just last week this was like a marathon. I was overall exhausted from just watching this anime, and it felt like a gigantic waste of time. Again, I go in blindly not reading the reviews to give my own input. The premise of this anime is about the main character making a transition from volleyball to play in the school's small music band. A nice premise to ...

A Mediocre Blend of Music and Mystery

In the realm of anime, where musical themes and mystery-solving narratives intertwine, HaruChika: Haruta to Chika wa Seishun Suru attempts to captivate viewers with its unique blend of genres.
