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.

I started watching the series because the main character looks like Kanna, I keep watching it because of Raidou’s antics, and I ended up witnessing an emotionally relatable ride through the personal growth of two characters that I could not but cheer for. During its 12 episodes, Aharen-san Is Indecipherable delivers an honest yet comical representation of awkward socialization, portraying how the flaws and abnormalities outlines the beauty of human relationships. The strength of its routine, the constant usage of popular references, the coherence of its foundation, the texture of the cognitive distortions, the weight of the self-love messages, each element fuses to create a ...

Aharen san is a strange anime, When I talked to my friends many of who have seen more anime than me, half of them really hate this anime, and the other half love this anime.

As for me, I personally did enjoy watching this anime, it's nothing new, a semi-slice of life combined with a gag manga type of show full of pop culture references!

The anime has more references to other pop culture and JOJO (obviously.) than I have seen in a long time, they are hard to spot but always random and funny af if you can spot them we got Ooshiro spoderman , Aharen ...

+ A screwball comedy about a girl that's hard to read, and a boy that makes the wackiest assumptions
+ When the deadpan, absurdist humour works, the jokes can be incredibly funny
~ When it doesn't work, the jokes are incredibly flat
+ The opening and ending are really cute!
~ But the cuteness of the OP & ED don't really fit the show's dry humour
+ It's not really a romance; much of the comedy revolves around other people misunderstanding the intentions of our two lead characters
~ ...until episode 10, in which the show suddenly turns into a romance

= It's a quirky show, with a handful of positive qualities ...
