With his mother taken away from him and having lost everything, Lag Seeing is now a letter whose delivery has been assigned to Gauche Suede, a Letter Bee. Despite their troubling start, the two of them become friends, leading Lag to realize what his aim in life is: to deliver people's most important feelings in the form of letters, just as Gauche has done.

Definitely my go-to-list if anyone asked about the first anime to make me cry. While yes the MC is the most crybaby MC I have ever encountered, it's kinda justifiable if you read the manga. The OPs and EDs are definitely superb and compliment the story.
Tegami Bachi world setting is definitely one of the most out-of-the-box I've seen. A Sunless world, where the Sun is a mere fairytale. A world of cat-eyed humans who seek to get closer to the artificial Sun. A world where memories and emotion matter the most. Also big insect monsters?! I'm sold.
While it looks like a simple or childish story, ...

Tegami Bachi Season 1 Review: Pretty Middling tbh. Nothing really that stood out.

The Series is set in steampunk world where the Chads are Mailmans. In this world they are called Letter Bee, or Tegami Bachi. They go around delivering Letters which carry people's hearts. Each Letter Bee has 2 main components. Their Gun which is capable of shooting there *metaphorical* heart and there Dingo which is like a sidekick. The story follows our main character who wants to find his hero who saved 7 years before we begin our story. So alongside his trusty Dingo who is an underage girl who refuses to wear underwear ...

This is 100% the worst piece of hot garbage i have ever seen in my life. It's about an ugly sh*ta stalking some man he met years ago, stalking his sister just because they're related, destroying the mail he delivers and then getting praised for it, etc. Not to mention the author is most certainly attracted to minors, given how many weird, uncomfortable scenes there are of actual children with extensive talk of their underwear habits. This show legitimately made me uncomfortable numerous times and I think nobody should watch this. Even prisoners at Guantanamo Bay should be spared from this sorry excuse for a ...
