Natsumi’s Time to Shine

I remember in the manga, these little backstory chapters often came out of the blue. However, they were still enjoyable to read. That said, I like how the writers of My Senpai is Annoying 07 took this limited backstory material of Futaba and Natsumi and constructed it in a meaningful way.

I don’t think the story of Natsumi in elementary school was in the source manga. However, it made for a nice way to show why Natsumi likes to run, yet did nothing with it during school. I also liked how the anime fleshed out how Natsumi and Futaba became close friends. It all felt organic, and I liked that.

The episode also established Natsumi’s relationship with Yuuto. In the manga, Yuuto’s perspective is the one normally seen. That’s why having Natsumi run into Yuuto and then talk with him was a bit more interesting. Further to that, we see her thinking of Yuuto when she meets his sister at the convenience store. It will be intriguing to see what the anime writers take things.

Final Thoughts and Conclusion

Work has me hopping, so let me wrap up my review with some final thoughts.

  • The Sakurai x Kazama thread gets touched at the hanami.
  • Speaking of romantic threads, I liked how Futaba opened up to Takeda at the hanami.
  • I only just thought about it, but it is interesting that in middle school, Futaba and a short haircut and Natsumi wore a ponytail. Today, Futaba has the ponytail and Natsumi has the short haircut. Go figure.

My Senpai is Annoying 07

In the end, My Senpai is Annoying 07 was a fun episode that gave Natsumi some love while exploring her friendship with Futaba and the start of her interest in Yuuto.
