I rather enjoyed this series and the characters although the overall plot felt rather directionless and it ultimately didn't amount to much. The relaxing atmosphere and likeable characters saw me through the series but it's probably not one that's worth a re-watch. Reminded me of Tari Tari.
Whilst I do like P.A. Works and their series do tend to look really nice, I am noticing a trend where a lot of them look and feel the same.
I like the characters, the artwork .... it's a nice anime, but hell that storytelling sucked -.- There is more unsaid and unshown than in NGE. The pace is rather slow but erratic and some guesswork is necessary .... there is no grand idea behind it all, just a summer break in Japan for some soon to be highschoolers.
