To the students of Karai High School, Nanako Yukishiro is a pretty, calm, and cute 16-year-old. However, Nanako is no ordinary girl, as she cannot speak! Instead, Nanako communicates through senryuu—17-syllable-long poems.

Sixteen-year-old Eiji Busujima used to be delinquent in his middle school years. However, he has since turned over a new leaf due to his newfound love of senryuu. Despite his menacing looks, Eiji gets along well with Nanako as a fellow member of the Literature Club.

Even though Nanako is mute, the adorable pair have no problem communicating with each other. Senryuu Shoujo is a light and relaxing story of two teenagers' daily lives.

This is literally Komi can't communicate, but in a different manner. Nanako can't speak so she writes poems and expresses herself and Komi writes in her notebook and expresses herself.

It uses an entire literary genre as the focal point for its story, and not once does it feel contrived or like it's trying to maintain a shit just for sticking out. The opening and ending themes were great at the very least. It bodes well with the premise. ...

I gave it a 6 just because, after I've read the manga, I came to the conclusion that this anime, despite its beautiful production regarding animation and colors, does not do justice to the original story.

In the anime, Nanako is a perfect girl: cute, cheerful and pure. In the manga she's all that, but also she's actually funny because some of her poems are hilarious, and sometimes misfortunes happen to her (like in one chapter that she injures her finger, and starts spitting incomprehensible poems like a broken printer!).

I don't understand why they decided to make such a short anime. It's cute but kinda forgettable ...

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, ...
