Higehiro: After Being Rejected, I Shaved and Took In a High School Runaway

26-year-old Yoshida is an employee at a major IT company. He meets a high school girl on his way home after drinking. Yoshida's crush had decisively rejected him after he pined for her for five years, and he had decided to drink his sorrow. Sayu, the runaway high school girl he meets, says they could sleep together if he lets her stay with him. Yoshida chides the girl for the suggestion but eventually lets her stay with him.

Up to ch.24 - The story isn't something new but the execution is mostly really good in many ways. The psychological balance is well kept, in my opinion, although it wakes up a lot of negative feelings the purpose stay clear. It's a story about a damaged girl who - by accident - meet a 'normal' grown up Man with clear priorities. Instead of saying it's a simple wh...e, you start to wonder what happened to this girl and why she ended like this. If i had to say what other series may cause the same feelings I guess it would be yuri-less 'Citrus'. By emotional balance i mean the moe parts and the disturbing one are well separated and clearly executed. The theme is rather mature and younger people might judge the female characters upfront instead of making their own maind.  I missed the novel but the manga is really good. The Visual part is well made and every chapter feels complete. I guess the echhi part works as the psychological part because... well, you start to think about the male lead. How strong must he be to not give in, although MANY others before him just accepted the premium free ride. Obviously it's serves a lot of fan service but it's how the anime industry works. I'm almost certain that I'll drop the whole franchise due to heavy emotional balast but people who likes this kind of drama will be satisfied. I do think it's good enough that it can teach something about mental disturbed young girls while showing that it's worth trying to help them.
