Beginning his first year of high school, all Matsuboshi Raidou wants is to make friends—starting with the cute, tiny, and soft-spoken Reina Aharen, who sits right next to him in class. Unbeknownst to Raidou, Reina shares the same sentiment, but she has a problem. Awkward and timid, Reina is incapable of determining how chummy she has to be when approaching a person.

Due to Reina's complete inability to gauge personal space, the two struggle to spark their unlikely friendship, as even the simplest tasks like talking seem impossible for them. But despite the countless yet pointless challenges that hinder the pair, the overly imaginative Raidou will do whatever it takes to befriend the indecipherable Reina.

Raido wants to be more social during his freshman year of high school. It was hard for him to make friends in middle school because he looked unfriendly.

He decides to talk to the loli girl Aharen who sits next to him in class. But she's seemingly ignoring him. Turns out she's a very low talker. She developed this habit because she was seen as too clinging by her previous friends.

Raido tries all he can to find an effective way for the two to communicate. But unintentionally develops super hearing as a result of trying to hear Aharen's soft voice.

This isnt really a romance. Its mostly ...

Mixed Feelings
The titular Aharen-san is diminuitive, quiet girl that has a particular set of skills. Raido is a large and imposing boy who often comes off as stand-offish, so he doesn't develop many relationships. These two high schoolers go from uncertain of each other to joined at the hip, and this series actually develops its romances rather quickly, though its side characters range from forgettable to frustrating.

In all, it’s a cute production with decent art and a sweet relationship at its heart. Unfortunately, it’s milquetoast. The central joke runs its course early, becoming rote rapidly, and while the series does have a good deal of heart ...

well, i liked the cover but the series is a little boring...

Mostly I felt that the comedy is so simple without grace, any jokes don't make me a laugh any time, if I force it I guess that the story is not bad but don't have any special to call it good, its...ok

The characters especially Aharen have so cute designing but this is everything about them, even in other aspects such as development, construction, even essence the characters are so simple

well, overall this is really not bad but even for anime to relax and laugh a little moment, even in this aspect it does not ...
