The teaser starts with Chisato and Takina’s line art, which transitions into a full anime-like visual. Chisato has a lively expression on her face as she drags a lost and bewildered Takina with her.

Both of them look like middle schoolers with polar opposite personalities. Even their looks are nothing alike, with Chisato having short blonde hair and Takina having long black hair.

While Chisato looks lively and friendly, Takina looks equally shy, introverted, and quiet. This proves that their bond is superior because who doesn’t like the ‘opposites attract’ trope?

I’m looking forward to what the anime has in store for us. It seems like a nice slice of life, but it could be something more.

To be honest, the anime teaser is giving me major yuri vibes, and I’m excited to see how that turns out. Are they really friends, or is this a beautiful love story? I can’t wait to find out!
