"Nobody knows the story of the girl that everybody knows." Numazu is a scenic port town surrounded by the mountains and the sea. Yohane, a girl who has struggled to fit in with her surroundings since childhood, spends her day avoiding people in the city. What I want to do, my true whereabouts, that is— Walking with a girl that cannot be honest, in a mysterious world you are familiar with. Another sun that has just appeared.

I'm writing this as of episode 5 and I intend to update it once the season finishes.

We all know action animes that are so popular that it gets a slice-of-life spin-off that's all about being comedy focus most of the time. But what if a slice-of-life anime got an action-focus spin-off? We get this beautiful masterpiece.
Genjitsu no Yohane started out as an April's Joke from the sunrise staff surprisingly became an actual anime with deep messages and gripping character development. They could've made this anime as a joke, but they didn't. The staff went above and beyond with this anime, and I praise them ...

When Yohane the Parhelion: Sunshine in the Mirror was announced, I think everyone thought it was a joke considering its first announcement trailer dropped on April Fools Day. A weird spin-off of Love Live Sunshine, which is considered to be the best Love Live by the fandom, which is wrong because the best Love Live is Love Live Superstar.

She met girls who became instantly her friends for... reasons. She struggles because she feels she has to do it alone but turns out she doesn't have to. The end.

Genuinely speaking, it doesn't have the heart you'd find in SIP or Love Live Sunshine!!. The character of Yoshiko / Yohane who could be ...
