For people who only wants cute/heartwarming romance stuff, this anime and manga should be for them but this one was never able to grab me. Knowing how the anime community works somewhat, I expect many, many people to place her first or second in the top girls list of the season (not me though). Still not as bad as some of the other premieres that not many had expectations for but this show is just not for me whatsoever.

The OP song is... different but nice. Didn't expect that drop around 3/4 of the way in but it sure is a pleasant song, the speed up to the drop with the vocals and melody was nice. And the art atleast was a decent adaptation too of the simple style of the manga.

Most of the romcoms have an indecisive MC. Nasa went to the other extreme.

I don't think this a rom com at all. Reminds me of His and Her Circumstances or My Love Story where they get together quickly. I don't know if it will be as good never read source.

Not sure if it was because I was expecting another twist in the end - that never came - I found it kinda dull. Hoping some charm and laughs are up ahead.

That was an interesting episode... Kind of messy though LOL but in a way, i guess that kinda fits with its comedic element? It was alright im just wondering what route this show is going to take. I hope it's going to be good nonetheless. The visuals are oki. the opening was really catchy damn. I can see this becoming a forgettable rom-com show but I hope it will surprise me with its weird plot. I mean in a way its genius to just throw away the normal rom-com structure by just starting with marriage first.

Overall a 5/10 episode its fine lets see where this goes

As far-fetched as this quick progression was, I just gotta say that these characters are awesome. I mean seriously how can you not love them both?

I haven't read the manga but that was a damn good way to start a romance show at least

I didn't imagine Nasa sounding like that reading the Manga but it grew on my quickly, they nailed Tsukasa!

The opening is an absolute banger! I'm having a hard time imagining something surpassing that!

With this and Horimiya next season, we're living the good life

This anime is pretty good so far. Can't wait for all the manipulation, shaming tactics and misunderstandings. See you next week I guess.

The op is good. Truck-kun came in clutch for the dude. First episode impressions solid 6 out of 10 for me. I have no idea where this could go. Next episode should make this a 7 unless it’s a clusterfuck.

Ok.

It was a bit weird in the beginning, but I think it'll be a fluffy SoL.

I didn't liked the OP.

To the people who say this anime doesn’t make sense:
Yes it doesn’t but if you want to see the cutest couple ever, keep watching. You won’t be disappointed. This shows wholesomeness will be off the charts.

Wow! This is so sweet and looks like it will be a very enjoyable experience.

Nasa earned my respect with how proactive he is. He is especially refreshing when you compare him to a wuss like Kazuya from last season.

The opening is awesome as well.

I've got to say that it is a little weird hearing Kyouko's voice coming out of Tsukasa's mouth, but it's unique enough that I'll definitely get used to it. At this point, I'm predicting this show as being the best Crunchyroll original of the year (current holder being Kyouko Suiri.) Between this and Majo no Tabitabi it looks like we've got plenty of cute wholesome anime to go around (and the Higurashi remake for cute piece-full anime.)
Every day you can read a book or watch some anime is a good day!

With all the dithering that anime relationships do all too often it was SO refreshing to see one that got right to it even before the OP began!

8/10 episode 1 which was very fun, I've read the manga but I forgot how many chapters it was. Tsukasa is so cute, Nasa is really lucky, lmao.

I wasn't expecting a lot from this series, but holy shit this episode won me over. First of all the OP is amazing and catchy as hell. Second thing is that I like all the NASA/space references in this show. This show went out of its way to make fun of the isekai genre by having truck-kun run over the mc, but he barley survives after meeting the girl of his dreams.

This is a nice little rom-com and I can't wait to see more of it.

I have a theory but it's sad:

Tsukasa is an angel sent to him right before he was destined to die. She is somehow keeping him alive as long as she can so he can enjoy what a married life is like before his time comes to pass on.

Or I'm just reading too much into it and this is just a straight forward romcom.

she better be a vampire or else this is going to be more boring than a generic slice of life anime.
The only thing i was curious about is why she wanted to get married. I am guessing cose she needs money + Nasa seeing his bank savings was a hint towards that for me.

Yeah... Idk about this one chief. I can't get behind this premise. The characters are just too unbelievable. They build up Nasa's motivation all to have him completely throw it all away and dedicate his entire life to finding some random girl with supernatural, truck tanking abilities. Not to mention how nonsensical it is for her to start spewing facts about NASA. I mean give me a break. It would at least make sense if Nasa was the one to do research about NASA...

Right now my investment/interest in their relationship is a whopping 0/100, and I def won't be able to enjoy any of the "cuteness" if the show doesn't get me interested soon.

I mean she just says those things because Nasa was devaluing the name people have laughed at from his childhood



She says those things because she thinks his name is truly an amazing one to have and should be honoured

I mean, considering that you yourself are aware of her supernatural ability to tank a truck head on, plus the not-so-subtle allusion to Princess Kaguya, it's pretty obvious that there's a strong theme about space going on here. Her spewing facts about NASA is less nonsensical and more foreshadowing the prominence about going to space and how it ties to her identity.

Absolutely fantastic. Easily the best new series starting of the season so far, not sure what else is gonna top this.

This is one of those rare shows where you love both the leads. Nasa's reactions are hilarious and the way he's just instantly changes in mind because of cuteness overload from Tsukasa is just so glorious. I laughed out loud many times during the whole show. On the other hand, Tsukasa is cool and adorable, interestingly the she plays the straight man here when it's normally the other way around.

Tons of cute, wholesome scenes. The romance itself has a very 'pure' air about it reminiscent of Tsuki ga Kirei. Once again, fantastic. I hope this atmosphere stay for the entirely of this show.

Sure but that is obviously not my point. The fact that she knew these obscure facts about NASA is incredibly random (not to mention convenient). Plus the dialogue made me feel like I was watching some NASA promotion about how great they are for beating Russia to the moon.

It really isn't. Keep watching. As I said, it's pretty blatant foreshadowing for why she's actually knowledgeable about space related stuff.

I don't know shit all about the princess Kaguya story. If they mentioned that it was moon related in this episode then I'm sorry, but I missed it. ctrl+F on the princess Kaguya wikipedia for moon had several results. Ok so I concede that there is a space theme here, but that does not change how jarring the dialogue was. It made me feel like I was watching a NASA promotional video.

ehhh this is wholesome with no strings attached really?! looks up it's from the creator of Hayate this makes sense now at first i wondering why the character designs reminded me of We Never Learn.

is this the rare time a character lives from Truck-kun( also that was a big ass truck) and processed to say fuck that i gotta chase after this girl because shes cute NASA was seriously motivated


i support wholesome romcom's anyday

Truck-kun failed so hard... didn't send the MC to isekai with a Harem, but ended up having him married best waifu in one ep...
