Synopsis: Office worker Yoshida has been crushing on his coworker, Airi Gotou, for five years. Despite finally scoring a date with her, his confession is promptly rejected. Drunk and disappointed, he stumbles home, only to find a high school girl sitting on the side of the road. The girl, needing a place to stay the night, attempts to seduce Yoshida. Despite rejecting her advances, he nevertheless invites her into his apartment.

The next morning, the girl, introducing herself as Sayu Ogiwara, reveals that she has run away from Hokkaido all the way to Tokyo. During her six-month spree, she continually traded sexual favors for a roof over her head. Yoshida, however, remains unswayed by her seduction. Instead, he has her do a different kind of work—one that entails washing dishes and doing laundry. And so, a touching relationship between a heartbroken adult and a runaway high school girl begins.

episode 1
Another uncomfortable age gap. But this one starts off with dude blaming his crush for not being upfront about being in a relationship? Like it’s her fault for “leading him on”? At least when it comes to the high school girl, his behaviour is completely upright and proper. I guess we’ll see where this goes.

I couldn't even watch half of ep 1. Guess I won't be criticizing it if I don't watch it.

THANK GOD FOR THAT. At least the perverts watching this would know what kind of behavior is appropriate =.= but I was really disgusted by how the girl was so hell bent on sleeping with him. I mean, yeah, it's okay if she wanted to do it but the premise is totally horrible. She's been on the run for 6 months? Whatever in the world happened to her in her own home that she's now living on the streets, selling her body for night shelters????? And this MC is the first guy who hasn't taken advantage of her and she finds that ... positive.... if she falls for him starting from this, it'll be totally.... :sly:

He givers her a lecture and says exactly this... “I’m not a nice guy, the other guys were just scum!” I don’t know if she’s going to fall for him but he’s definitely acting like a parent to her and is concerned about what has happened to her at home and in her life to make her this way. Being a sex worker isn’t shameful at all but doing so out of desperation or when you don’t have a choice is a different issue. I don’t like the idea of vilifying sex work. And I don’t like the idea of oversexualizing or exploiting youth so there’s a fine line this show needs to walk.

Exactly. The other guys let her stay the night in exchange of some sweet time and she accepted, okay. This protag guy said he wanted only miso soup, and she made it for him. So payment done. Still she was coming on to him like that. It just feels like something that perverted minds would interpret as "ah, high school girls actually want this, they just act shy in real life". I dunno. Maybe this wouldn't. But after all the "she was asking for it" thing that happens, I just couldn't take it anymore. *flips table*

Yes it does. I just thought that this show might actually deal with issues of trauma and abuse and show the things that lead to people ending up in these situations. It seems to be much better written than most as it is touching on those issues at least. Now the very beginning with him blaming the coworker for having a boyfriend was classic BS. So the characters aren’t perfect by any means.

Of course, that's definitely true. And having perfect characters isn't mandatory.

If they do it, that would be great. I wish this anime all the best. This Hige will stay Hige xD

episode 2
Sooo... there’s more women interested in our guy now. His kohai at work wants a chance and Gotou, the one who rejected him is feeling some kind of way about him now. Things are developing between him and his flatmate such that they’re able to better communicate now which is good at least. His friend is giving good advice but will he take it?

episode 3
So we got more insight into her insecurities and why she’s trying to seduce her current housemate. We confirmed that he’s not a eunuch but he’s still not trying to make a move on her. The coworker is trying to date him and knows about the teenager. She seems to be understanding thus far but this is looking like a harem show setup, honestly.

episode 4
She got a job. Then her sempai showed up raising hell. On top of all that, Goutou drops a bomb of “I like you; I lied; I’m a virgin but I’d have sex with you”. It turned into I’m going to ask you out one day but still. Now it’s she wants to meet Saya. This is so convoluted. It’s a fricking harem show.
