Hime is a picture-perfect high school princess--she's admired by all and never trips up! So when she accidentally injures a café manager named Mai, she's willing to cover some shifts to keep her facade intact. To Hime's surprise, the café is themed after a private school where the all-female staff always puts on their best act for their loyal customers. However, under the guidance of the most graceful girl there, Hime can't help but blush and blunder! Beneath all the frills and laughter, Hime feels tension brewing as she finds out more about her new job and her budding feelings...

This show is getting a bit more trash talk than it really deserves. It's not for every viewer, my wife and I only watched the first 2 episodes together then I watched the rest alone. That being said, while it has it's weaknesses, there are a couple of very strong points. Establishing and resolving heavy character arcs in a reasonable timeframe because characters actually confront each other is always refreshing, and this show does a very good job of doing that in a reasonable and realistic way.It is a messy show, but I would go so far as to say that is one of it's strongest points. It takes each character several attempts to express themselves before they really get it right, and even then it's just about getting to a point of understanding where the conflict itself is resolved instead of the relationships as a whole. In that way, it is very realistic in how people actually treat each other, particularly when dealing with trauma and stands out. One of the characters starts to end up heading towards yandere, but another character that was trying to prevent any outward issues eventually realized that the best course was just to support and care for the other in a healthy way, encouraging them without encouraging their "toxic" mentalities, while still accepting who they are and what they feel. It was an incredibly powerful moment and one that makes me want to rate this show incredibly highly even with it's flaws. That aspect alone has me very much looking forward to a second season.That being said, the weaknesses are real. There were several moments that made my heart cringe, and I personally not overly fond of moments like that. The pacing feels somewhat off in that I can only really pinpoint 2 major arcs in the full 12 episode season, even though I know there was always something happening. The cast feels both overly focused(4 main cast but only focusing on 2 at a time while every other character is sidelined) and not expansive enough at the same time(Interesting side characters that are, at most, part of backstory).After all of that, though, I found myself enjoying this show unexpectedly more and in a deeper way than I ever expected going into it. I would highly recommend this show for anyone who enjoys character-centric and realistic relationship-focused shows. If you just want fluffy romance or cute girls doing cute things, this isn't probably your cup of tea.
