Fumikiri Jikan – Synopsis

What We Can Expect
I personally love slice of life genre. So, this upcoming anime is now definitely on my watchlist. Furthermore, if you love conversations like I do, then hopefully this anime will be an interesting watch. I would not be surprised if the target audience is especially high school girls. If that would be true, I will have o wonder what am I doing when watching this anime.
Although the conversations are among high school girls, we can indeed expect some deeper question on life. Questions and perspectives that would enrich the views mind. Also, if the author would add enough comedy and romance to this mix, chances of this anime succeeding would surely increase. If this anime really makes a great first impression and I look forward to reviewing this later on.
