I’ll be frank: I think this episode will probably divide fans. I won’t say how exactly because I don’t know and I don’t Maesetsu! Opening Act most likely isn’t remembered outside of its Fall 2020 debut. In fact, you might have read this review, googled “Maesetsu!” after, and found out that yes, this show is only two seasons old. It wasn’t even a flash in the pan, and probably slid completely under the radar for most viewers. It’s a shame, because Maesetsu! is perfect light-hearted anime fodder, offering up a stress-free show that’s just about a quartet of young women who want to do something that makes them genuinely happy.
Maesetsu continues to be a very enjoyable show with an incredibly charming cast that you genuinely want to cheer for.
Maesetsu! episode two grows the proverbial beard in the best of ways, giving us valuable backstory on Rin and Nayuta.
Maesetsu! Opening Act combines early 2000’s comedy vibes with late 2010’s animation into a fairly entertaining show with room to grow.
