On his way home from drinking his sorrows away after being rejected by his crush, the 26 year old salaryman, Yoshida, finds a high school girl named Sayu sitting on the side of the road. Yoshida is completely drunk out of his mind and ends up letting Sayu stay at his place overnight. Not having the heart to put Sayu out on the streets since she ran away from home, Yoshida allows her to stay at his place... And so began the awkward, irritable, and slightly heartwarming relationship between a runaway high school girl and a salaryman living together.

"I can't go home, I'm out of money and my family doesn't want anything to do with me. I've slept with many men just so I could have a roof over my head". Higehiro: After Being Rejected, I Shaved and Took in a High School Runaway is a show that's trying to be dramatic and wants you to take it seriously, but everything about it has the complete opposite effect. Its moral compass is off, even though it tries to make you think it's doing the right thing. The show tries to make you care about Sayu, the main girl in the story, by making her go through sexual abuse and making her deal with the suicide of a friend, but these situations are handled in such a disgusting way that it leaves you confused and annoyed with how poorly it's written. When you see a girl curled up underneath a lamppost who tells you that she's been sleeping around with many men, the first thing you'd do is drag her ass to a doctor. How does this show handle a situation like that? The main character, Yoshida, just asks Sayu to come over to his place... for a while...  The normal step that follows is to contact a female friend (or in this case a female co-worker) because it'd be much easier for a girl to talk to another female... Unless you're Yoshida, you just go to work as if nothing ever happened. In a normal situation, you'd try to figure out what happened to the young girl that is now living under your roof. How did you end up here? Yoshida doesn't ask questions, he just lets Sayu stay at his place without ever really questioning her.  But the silliest part of the show is how it handled the situation where Sayu almost gets raped by her co-worker, a dude she slept with in the past. If your co-worker tried to rape you, you wouldn't just go back to work the next day and work a shift with that same guy. You also wouldn't have a 'civil' discussion with that same dude a minute after you catch him trying to rape a young girl.  If only she had family that cared about her... Oh wait... This show has issues, a lot of issues. It's a show that really tries to take itself seriously but then plenty of people will also praise it for its realistic approach, both of these statements are clearly not the case.

You're your own worst enemy. After confessing his love to his his coworker Aira Gotou which promptly gets rejected, Office worker Yoshida goes out drinking to cure his depression of a one-sided love. On his way home he comes across a young woman sitting underneath a street lamp wearing a school uniform. When asked what she is doing the young woman who introduces herself as Sayu Ogiwara tries to seduce Yoshida in order to stay the night. Yoshida then immediately rejects her advances but nonetheless still invites her back to his apartment. The next morning during a miso soup breakfast which was requested by Yoshida during a drunken rant Sayu admits that for the last six months she travelled across Japan staying at men's apartments in return for sexual advances.  That's the show. JUST KIDDING. Don't let that terrible plot synopsis on my part deter you from this slice of life romance show where Sayu actually helps Yoshida become a better person inside and out. And at the same time Yoshida makes Sayu come out of her shell to act more her age and not do anything that would be considered "degenerate behavior." Yoshida cares for Sayu's wellbeing throughout the show by buying a futon so she won't sleep on the floor and even a smartphone so the two of them could be in constant contact with each other. Throughout these "gifts" Sayu still believes that Yoshida harbors feelings for her and even still in the middle of the season she asks Yoshida if "he finds her hot." In response Yoshida says "Of course I do." But then he promptly pushes her aside and says that she doesn't need to act like that anymore now that she is staying with him.  The relationship between Sayu and Yoshida isn't the only one that is an important part of the show. Somehow Gotou actually hid her feelings for Yoshida which then came out after she sees his attitude and appearance change. Another love story is the one between Mishima a "lazy" worker in Yoshida's office who also has feelings for him.  I wouldn't want an ending where Sayu becomes best girl, but she is certainly acting like it. The show isn't as cringy as one might thing it's more like a comeback story, rising from the pits of hell and becoming a better person because of it.  That being said the show moves slow and not much attention grabbing, its mostly just dialogue with a realistic and dramatic tone, its not my forte but it could be for some people.

a While back I gave this a review but looks like they took it down oh no worries that wasn't the full review anyway.....Ohk lets start this review with the plot Lets see after he was rejected by the women he loved because of her H cups he got drunk and met a highschool girl, the girl asked him a place to stay in return of giving him sexual pleasure from her G cups but he refused because he was a chad and told her that he will only fuck the one he truly love but he gave her a place to stay in return of her doing the chores. Then the first 3 days even after being rejected the SLUT oh my sorry I mean sayu offers him sex but he refuses againg showing his chadness then she understands and lives a decent life for the upcoming days in the other hand yoshida's khouhai who is in love with him gradually comes to know that sayu and yoshida is living together and also the H cupped women who rejected him also shows sign of falling in love with him then one day a pesky insect that the slut offered her body in the past and became mind break finds her and molest her but this time she refuses and yoshida saves the day.....And just like that the story progresses sayu's family came to brink her back buit she doesn't wanna go, her sad backstory how she became depressed after her frnd commited suicide and decided to become a slut and her strict mother and so on...... now lets talk about my thoughts U already know that I hate this show but U maybe don't know why. what I am gonna write is like based on facts and my opinion strictly so no hate to the fans.... So like this is bullshit ,first the plot I mean comeon Who the fuck will leave a girl in middle of the road asking to be a sex slave alone if it would have been me I would have taken her to a hospital first and then the police station cuz I am not interested in fucked up sluts....And also like tf are there only male workers in the whole world or what? I mean aren't there any women workers who would lent a hand to her that she goes around giving sex to male in exchange for a place top stay? that got me really pissed just how much of a slut are you but they didn't stopped at that they included her having sex with that pesky insect I talked out where she literally had a mind break I mean is it a hentai or a doujin? If not for that it would have been watchable atleast but that scene fucked literally everyone up be it good or be it bad.... Now lets talk bout why she became a slut ? It was purely because her frnd and only moral support died and the pressure from her family was too much for her to bare so she decided to became a prostitute, I mean bruh really many people don't even have frnd and they are literally being abused at home but they still don't think about being a slut or a fuck boy....Literally If u ask me I can give u a 100+ reason to hate this show...This show for me I would say was watchable because of yoshida and his kouhai and the H cupped milf. Now lets talk about Wheater you should watch it or not then if u hate ntr or prostitution or like mind break like me then don't this will literally fuck u up even netsuzou trap would seem better then this shit. PS : I don't give a shit to what people say to me because its my personal opinion and it will never change in terms of this show
