Natsuyuki Rendezvous First Impressions

So, this show was surprisingly interesting. Basic idea is that the main character, Hazuki Ryuusuke, is in love with a girl, Shimao Rokka, who is still not over her dead husband. Turns out her husband, Shimao Atsushi, is a ghost that only Hazuki can see and hear. It was nice…Hazuki sorta confesses to the girl and issues a direct challenge to Atsushi (kinda like “what are you gonna do about it?”). Not what you’d typically expect from a male lead in a romance (especially a whacked out love triangle like this).

Nope…nothing suspicious going on here!
Opening sounded great to me…ending not as good, but not bad. They both seem like songs that would fit this sort of thing. There’s a lot of stuff this show can do…I’m curious what it will choose. For example, they can have Atsushi remain exclusively visible to Hazuki or he could show up to some of the other characters around the shop (though not to Rokka, of course). Not sure if I’ll cover the show, but I’m interested enough to keep watching.

  1. So far it’s feeling like a much more mature version of AnoHana, which I approve of. It’s all going to depend on how mature the show can really stay over time.


  2. I do wonder why only Hazuki can see Atsushi. It seems Atsushi knows that Hazuki is in love with Rokka which led him to appear in front of him. I was definitely pleasantly surprised by the show and will continue to watch it for the time being.


    1. I think it’s just for comedic effect…like a sick sense of irony. But who knows? Maybe they’ll reveal a cool reason later
