Thank You Mauser

If not for your post, I never would have watched this show.

It's not like the poster is devoid of appeal...

...but it and the blurb didn't really grab me. 

However, unlike the show reviewed below, this is not exactly what it says on the tin. While that poster is not, strictly speaking, dishonest, it does not adequately convey what this show is about.

Eight Word Title With Bunny Girl In It now has me totally  hooked. Despite the poster and an early scene with one of the characters running around in a bunny suit, this is a really creepy show and reminds me most of the Josei horror that was popular at the turn of the century. 

It's low key. It's well written and it's keeping me on the edge of my seat.

The characters are well done, likable and react to the just plain "off" things happening around them in rational but believable ways, while still trying to deal with day to day life.

" Yeah. I agree. Shadowbanning is a real problem." 

2 episodes in this is definitely looking like a keeper.

1 I haven't had much of a chance to write about it, but Bunny Girl is flat-out my favorite show of this season... and considering it's up against the anime adaptation of Bloom Into You, that's saying a lot.
A lot of people, myself included, are getting Haruhi vibes (though not plot-wise) from it.  And I'm not ashamed to say that I think Mai Sakurajima is one of the best female leads to come down the pike in a very long time indeed.

2 I'm really curious about where the second girl's story is going to go.
And I'm glad you enjoyed it. I guess I do have a talent for picking out the quirky but good shows (Mysterious Girlfriend X anyone?)
