Akane Nishimura's quiet nature makes her classmates perceive her as a gloomy and unlikeable person. Combined with her intimidating gaze, it earns Akane the ominous nickname "Grim Reaper," condemning her to endless bullying for her supposed cursed powers that bring misfortune to everyone around her.

However, none of these rumors deter transfer student Taiyou Takada from trying to befriend Akane. As someone who finds the supernatural fascinating, Taiyou approaches the Grim Reaper without hesitation, blissfully unaware of the complicated situation within the class. His bright personality and optimistic worldview may just bring about the change that Akane desperately needs.

Oh, those elementary school days. When things were so simple, and every day was seen through rose-tinted glasses. The goofiness of those days was so fun, and this anime made me reminisce about those days back then. It’s a rather simple anime, where a quiet girl, who is seen as unlikeable and gloomy, meets a boy so positive, upbeat, and dense that a supposedly derogatory nickname like “Grim Reaper” is just so cool to him.

We all likely had a first friend we made when we were kids, and that person was probably special to us. A lot our time was probably spent in the company ...

My clueless friend is legitimately one of the most wholesome, heart warming and endearing anime I’ve ever seen. A true hidden gem in a packed season that deserved much more love.

Being a kid is hard. Children are often picked on and made fun of for the most minuscule of reasons. While many times it’s harmless, often times it crosses into downright cruel bullying. The most unfortunate part of it is that you never know what other people are going through. People crack those jokes and have no idea the impact of what they’re saying. The overall message of this anime is to be kind. Treat ...

Mixed Feelings
The animation is fine, fairly average. There really isn't any flashy animation, but motion is fairly fluid. There are some decent backgrounds, but the art style used for the backgrounds is inconsistent. Character detail while stylized, is still fairly basic. Certain details are inconsistent from frame to frame, but very rarely. The characters are fairly likeable, with the exception of Takada who is fairly annoying. There is some character depth with Nishimura, but otherwise not a whole lot of depth. Story is fairly basic, but fun. Pacing is rather slow, but not unbearably slow. Voice acting is decent. While the performances are unimpressive, the casting ...
