Higehiro: After Being Rejected, I Shaved and Took in a High School Runaway

Rating: 8

Very enjoyable, touching series.

Only few very irritating story or character deficiencies, where I could not follow with characters behavior/thought process.

I am surprised the AniDB rating (user votes) is only at 5.5. Maybe the setting and storyline? The execution is done well IMO. This YouTube video suggests it’s because of the illegality of and social view on housing underage teens. Which, if that is the case, I find unreasonable.

The anime title is a really bad one (specifically the subtitle/subline).

Adult/Sexual themes. Some underlying themes could have probably been better.

The primary themes and (character) developments are quite intriguing. Some things felt shallow, naive or misplaced, while other apsects felt curios, raising good issues or developments.

A strong 8/10
