Traumatized by a childhood incident with a friend who took exception to his love of traditional dolls, doll-artisan hopeful Wakana Gojō passes his days as a loner, finding solace in the home ec room at his high school. To Wakana, people like beautiful Marin Kitagawa, a trendy girl who's always surrounded by a throng of friends, is practically an alien from another world. But when cheerful Marin--never one to be shy--spots Wakana sewing away one day after school, she barges in with the aim of roping her quiet classmante into her secret hobby: cosplay.

(One episode watched):

While this was an interesting show, and I plan to watch episode two, it wasn't as good as I had been hoping. Maybe the problem was that it wasn't very funny. The bit where Gojo somehow tosses the doll's head he carries with him into the air after bumping his leg made me roll my eyes. And Kitagawa somehow goes flying through the air in a classroom, high above the floor, bangs her head against the edge of a desk--and shrugs it off? Not likely. If this is supposed to be mainly drama rather than comedy, the drama is just getting underway. I felt we hadn't really gotten to know either of the main characters all that well either. He's a loner due to his unusual hobby/trade, she's popular and outgoing (and into cosplay)--but otherwise they basically remain strangers. The one thing which most struck me about episode one was that other than Gojo's infatuation (is it really serious enough to call it that?) not all that much surprised me. Maybe the basic premise wasn't convincing enough--would getting yelled at by another child be enough to traumatize someone indefinitely? Would it, and a strange line of work, really render someone incapable of making friends? I don't know, because just how far Gojo's addiction to Hina dolls extends has not been made clear.
