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.

I love the manga. It recently reached its 100th chapter milestone and being a short length show actually helps make the story flow better. ...

Mixed Feelings
Honestly, I really, really, really hate writing scathing reviews. Nonetheless, I also understand that when such reviews are presented as constructively as possible, it would reach the proper ears and eyes and may bring about better anime in the future. Here it goes... Senryuu Shoujo is a whimper of an anime.

Looking at the most reviews on MAL, I deduced of which the generally high scores were most likely influenced by the heroine's femininity and not, ironically, her Senryuu-writing journey. The heroine, Yukishiro Nanako, can only communicate with Senryuu writings (poems with 5-7-5 syllables), most likely due to past bullying issues, but soon she finds her ...

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, ...
