| Its ok.
The only really good things I can say about this anime is that I like the art style, and that the "romance" moves faster than most romances.

I watched episode one, and I don't really want to keep watching. I'm not a fan of romances, and especially not this one. Maybe these two characters are meant for each other, but the relationship isn't healthy. The guy is abusive and the girl is emotionless. There's even a rape joke (I think it was supposed to be a joke?) and it was uncalled for. There a scene where the girl gets punched in the face and later tells they guy she loves him. I don't find this relationship to be healthy or worth watching, and I honestly think that it can do harm for people watching this. A lot of people find these scenes sweet, and it really isn't. Glorifying abuse in media can do real harm. I'm not saying that it can't be present in any media, but it needs a better context. A romantic relationship is not a good context for what is really a toxic relationship.
