I kept putting off watching Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko for no particular reason and have finally watched the first episode. So here’s my super late first impressions on it.
The viewers are first introduced to a high school boy named Niwa Makoto who is moving to live with his aunt in another city since his parents are away on business. Right off the bat we can hear Makoto’s thoughts as he assigns either positive or negative point values to things that are happening to him. He has the normal worries of a high school student and is easy to identify with since his personality is quite normal compared to everyone else.
His aunt is the first person he meets once he arrives in town and she acts like a gag moe character (according to herself) which throws Makoto off a bit, but he goes along with the flow. It only gets better from here. He later meets her daughter who always has a futon wrapped around herself and believes she is an alien sent to Earth on a mission.
The main draw of the series would definitely have to be the bantering. Each new character he meets appears to have an abnormal personality which results in conversations that provide constant amusement. The visuals are also very well done with some slick animations, such as when his aunt grabs her daughter by the legs and spins her around.
Even though I regret not starting Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko earlier, at least now I have 5 episodes of pure entertainment to look forward to.
