After graduating high school, Yurume Aida joins the ranks of "ronin," students taking an extra year to prepare for college entrance exams. She decides to move from her rural hometown to Tokyo, hoping to take advantage of the cram schools and get a taste of city life. However, the country girl is shocked to learn that her boarding house, the Maison du Wish, is much less glamorous than she had imagined. As Yurume joins her neighbors and fellow ronin in scraping by with their meager funds, she finds a place in her community—even if she rarely ends up studying.

This is likely to be a lot more funny for people who ...

Ah- lets just forget about the rest of today and relax?

This is a short comedy focused on friendship and more or less forgetting the pain of the harsh reality of outside world. Instead it focus on enjoy the present time together with friends, which in this case, all live under the same roof. The comedy itself is rather simple and act on what it means to be an adult- meaning it plays on what one is supposed to be.

I think it's a worthwhile watch and I love this chibi animation, even if its very low quailty, but even so, its rather charming. I could ...

Mixed Feelings
A series of short vignettes, each basically an animated version of a 4-koma comic strip, I don't wonder if this isn't a collection of pieces that aired individually but were put together to form this single piece. The humor is very dry of the "Oh, I get it" variety, once again pointing to its print origins. It's been my experience that the drier humor becomes the harder it is to translate (even some British humor is beyond most Americans and vice verse and they, theoretically, speak the same language) and this seems to be what's happening here - to western tastes it's just not that ...
