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.

My Clueless First Friend is the story of what would happen if a new student became super attached to the friendless kid in the class, and was completely oblivious towards the situation. Taiyou almost immediately imprints on Nishimura like a puppy due to his chuuni tendencies, and an unbreakable bond is formed. While a lot of this anime is variations of this scenario, as the series goes on we see Nishimura-san become more confident and win more people over. There's Also a form of the "will they won't they" dynamic between the two main characters that isn't really resolved here, but could be further explored ...

A very positive anime which is simple and realistic in it's progress. I found it was uniquely graceful in showing healing from loneliness, and building a friend circle. For how lighthearted the mood is, the plot is grounded and the audio-visual presentation is remarkably consistent and clear. As I whole I think it's impressive, but each moment is quite standard. It has a soothing quality.

The characters are children, and the story is about dealing with malicious intentions from bullies, and discovering ways to be friends. The main character is a subdued and thoughtful girl who has been affected by her mother's passing. She is paired ...

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 ...
