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.

Spring is usually my favorite season every year. It usually consists of heavy hitters of popular franchises as well as new adaptations that generates a great deal of hype. This year though, we have an unusual amount of short series that runs half the length. Unfortunately, most of these shorts fell flat and limited themselves with low expectations. However, there are two shows this season that managed to break that limit. One of them is this curious little thing called Senryuu Shoujo.

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

What you need to know about this series is:
A rom-com story,
About haiku and school love,
Plus comedy too!

In the season of shorts becoming predominantly variable in time to come, this series is the Cream of the Crop for the season's contending SOTS (Short of the Season). But before that,

What is a haiku?
In what context is it used,
And how is it used?

Taking words off fellow reviewer @Krunchyman, haiku is a form of Japanese poetry, characterized by three un-rhymed lines of 5-7-5 syllables. In Japan, they utilize sound units known as “on” or morae, in which when translating into other languages, inconsistencies can lead to a number of read more

Senryuu Shoujo is a lovely little show. It has a simple premise: an essentially mute, shy waifu (Nanako) is only able to speak through written poems, and the episodes chronicle her time with her hooliganish friend (Eiji). The show is essentially a gentle, wholesome slice-of-life with some good comedy and some cute romantic undertones.

The art is cute. It is not ultra-detailed, but I found it charming. There is a funny effect where nobody has a complete mouth when their lips are closed, though it didn't bother me. I think it fits with the show. The characters are drawn very nicely in my opinion, and I read more

What is senryuu? Broadly speaking senryuu can also be interpreted as "haiku" or rather modern poetry more or less like that.

Tells about the life of a cute, cheerful girl named Nanako Yukishiro. He has flaws in communication, but he has one hobby, which is writing Senryuu, poetry to convey his feelings. Together with his naughty friend named Eiji Busujima, they enjoy a pleasant school life with just a few words. Storytelling goes well and is suitable for accompanying your boring daily life. The comedy and romance elements in this anime are very much felt especially when they spend time together read more
