Bunny Girl Senpai’s Guide to the Light Novels, Anime, and Manga

At a quick glance, Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai falsely appears to be another average rom-com anime, replete with fanservice and a lovey-dovey narrative. Further viewing reveals a more complex plot with some rewarding relationships and a realistic look at the societal challenges that beset youth. While the appearance and vibe of this series may appear to be based on fanservice, there are few to no obscene antics in Bunny Girl Senpai.

Azusagawa Sakuta minds his business while exploring a library when he notices young actress Sakurajima Mai wandering about the library costumed as a bunny girl. The weirdest aspect about this is not the unsuitable clothes but the fact that no one can see her but Sakuta, which also puzzles Mai. Sakuta, who refers to the bizarre phenomenon as “puberty syndrome,” makes it his duty to solve the riddle while getting closer to Mai and other girls suffering from it.
