Anime A to Z: S – Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai

Also known as Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai.
Moving forward to be referred to as Seishun Buta Yarou.

You know, there’s a lot I’d like to write about this anime.
So I will!

Seishun Buta Yarou is the best anime I’ve watched in a long time.
Actually, it might be my new favourite anime, period.
I’m not very good at committing to a favourite, but this one feels about right!

To put this into perspective, I’ve actually seen this anime twice.
As in, I watched this anime once, then proceeded to watch it a second time. Something I’ve never done with any other anime out there. I love re-watching anime, but normally I wait a few years before doing so. Something about Seishun Buta Yarou broke that tradition – I just wanted more of it, and a re-watch was the best I could do.

Don’t expect a synopsis or anything here – just watch it for yourself!
After 383 completed anime, here I am after finding an absolute gem with Seishun Buta Yarou, deciding upon a new favourite. Isn’t anime just the best thing ever?


Naturally after watching it twice I have not only 50+ screencaps (many for quotes), but a lot I’d like to write about. I’m planning on writing a post for every major character in the series. I don’t think that Seishun Buta Yarou is the most complicated anime out there – a lot of what you see is what you get. Even if something is unclear, the anime clears things up pretty quick, with the exception of a few topics.

So while the anime isn’t as cryptic and deep as the Monogatari Series, it definitely has enough to write about. Besides, it’s still easy to miss out on certain details. My second watch of the anime managed to confirm that.

Plus, I just love the characters in this anime.
I love the messages contained in this anime as well.
I love Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai!


I laughed, I cried, I thought about this anime non-stop start to finish.
I knew this was going to be a good anime, and it still exceeded all expectations.
As you’d expect, I recommend watching this one.

I know it’s not a hidden gem, so I won’t give it that award.
Seishun Buta Yarou gets the Raised the Bar award, for becoming one of the best anime I’ve seen, effectively raising the bar for future anime.

That’s all for this post.
You can expect… more posts in the future on this anime.
How many I don’t know, but many for sure – my first character analysis is already at 2700+ words, so I’ll very likely divide that up into two parts.

Lots more Seishun Buta Yarou content to come.
You can find all my character analyses here!

Until next time.
Thanks for reading. 🙂

    1. First one will be posted next week, I managed to write a lot haha. One of those few moments where I feel inspired enough to write an actual analysis – it’s very satisfying to look over what I managed to write afterwards though!

  1. WhoAmI?

    I really loved this one too! I’m actually following the (unofficial) translation of the light novels done by Mountain of Pigeons, you should definitely check out his translation of the LN as the novels do go a lot deeper into certain things and better flesh out some of the more rushed parts of Seishun Buta Yarou. As well, he also translates these really awesome Voice Dramas, that give us just a few minutes of extra time listening to the wonderful banter between Sakuta and the girls!

      1. Yeah I get that, sorry. I meant more like I would read it to practice reading in Japanese.

        But idk cause I’ve tried manga before and I just can’t get into the medium, VA and soundtrack of anime are a big deal for me.

  2. This was definitely one of my favorite shows from last year; nice to hear you liked it too.

    Fun fact: Kaede’s VA was Hanayo from Love Live. I didn’t pick up on that until the last couple episodes of the series.
