Ichirou Kuga has suddenly found himself taking on the responsibility of caring for his two younger siblings after their father's untimely death. To make ends meet, Ichirou rents out rooms in the apartment complex he inherited and works full-time as a shoujo manga artist. However, his manga sales are low, his assistants have recently left, and deadlines are fast approaching.

As stress threatens to overtake Ichirou, salvation comes in the form of an extremely competent novice artist, Shiori Goshiki, who becomes his new assistant. With her skills, they are able to tide over the difficult situation, and things begin looking up. But in a bizarre accident, a supernatural experience unfolds between Ichirou and Shirou, which leads her to declare them engaged.

With this seemingly innocuous action upending his life, Ichirou now has to manage his new and peculiar relationship with the mysterious girl, all the while following his own passion and fulfilling the duties that rest on his shoulders.

This anime is just wholesome all around. I really like the anime’s that show the lives of mangakas because I know all the animators had a fun time putting in extra details. Also the romance in this is top tier. There wasn’t any fan service it was a simple sweat diabetic filled wholesomeness.

Mixed Feelings
Animation is pretty decent. No flashy animations, but motions are fluid. Really good backgrounds and character detail. Characters have some depth, but not a ton. The characters are fairly likeable, but personally I hate Fumio. He literally just repeats the last few word of every scentence his sisters say for basically the entire anime. I've seen dogs that were written with more depth. The story is fairly unique, but then the plot doesn't really dig very deep into it. Pacing is fairly slow, but not unbearable. Voice acting is fine. Decent casting, but unimpressive performances. Soundtrack is fantastic, the ed/op are just okay. Honestly I ...

It was a pretty 5/10 show. Nothing major happened but the girl and the guy is cute. It's a very trashy show with nothing mind blowing. The animation style is pretty nice though I guess...

Answer: No

Do you think the art style is fitting for the story?
I guess so yeah it's pretty.
Were the characters well-rounded? Did they have flaws and ...
