Mashiro-iro Symphony – 10 Review

First the characters decide to eat at a café, then they realize that they have Pannya, the weird cat, with them which they can’t bring into the café but then they realize they’re standing in front of a café having the sign you see above.

This is the review of the tenth episode but since I have only reviewed the first episode of it I wanted to talk about the series as a whole until this point instead of just episode 10. It is surprising how good the series is if you think about how it could’ve been another one of those VN-adaptations that’s stereotypical and full of pointless fanservice. In fact Mashiro-iro doesn’t really like ‘pointless’. It’s drama 24/7 for the characters in this series but not in any action-kinda way and it isn’t a failed comedy-series making fanservice-jokes for drooling Otakus. This is a very idealistic romance-series taking emotions as serious as I’d take an angry ice bear serious. Like ice bears this kind of romance-anime is very rare or at least I haven’t come across many that even bother to use that approach in their romance-subplot.

There are many reasons why one can forget this series – and sadly there’s barely one to remember it.
