The rare and inexplicable Puberty Syndrome is thought of as a myth. It is a rare disease which only affects teenagers, and its symptoms are so supernatural that hardly anyone recognizes it as a legitimate occurrence. However, high school student Sakuta Azusagawa knows from personal experience that it is very much real, and happens to be quite prevalent in his school.

Mai Sakurajima is a third-year high school student who gained fame in her youth as a child actress, but recently halted her promising career for reasons unknown to the public. With an air of unapproachability, she is well known throughout the school, but none dare interact with her—that is until Sakuta sees her wandering the library in a bunny girl costume. Despite the getup, no one seems to notice her, and after confronting her, he realizes that she is another victim of Puberty Syndrome. As Sakuta tries to help Mai through her predicament, his actions bring him into contact with more girls afflicted with the elusive disease.

Ok look I am only into real 3D girls.. or so I thought until I watched this anime. I watched this anime like what 4 years ago maybe? I cannot even remember but yeah the storyline was amazing with unique characters and very good character development. Personally, I didn't really understand what was going on until after I read the reviews after finishing the anime since I was just admiring the cute anime girls the whole time. Like allow it man I was going through puberty. Gotta give props to the artists and I hope they get a raise.

Anyway, idk what else to yap about ...

Mixed Feelings
While I do like the premise of the show, it will always come to me as a replica of The Monogatari Series, which in my opinions is just leagues better than this.

The focus on social issues, especially those that younger people are experiencing, and the way they are represented by different forms of "puberty syndrome" is really good and separates it from the more supernatural absurdity of Monogatari.

I could write a long comparison between the two series and how monogatari does it way better but I won't bore you with it. They are different enough and I give Bunny Girl senpai the credit it deserves ...

This anime is somewhat enjoyable, if you had never seen Monogatari and are willing to overlook how nonsensical it is. That said, regardless of my mild enjoyment of it (blame Shaft for not putting out any Nisin stuff), I'm giving it the lowest possible rating. For plagiarism.

Nothing about this anime is either original or logical, most characters and setups are bland rip offs of Monogatari's, with small twists and differences to avoid the obviousness of what the author has done. The biggest, perhaps, stride for originality, is that the supernatural aspects of Monogatari were replaced with quantum physics, which would've been a curious approach.

If it ...
