Do you like bunny girls? What about invisible bunny girls who you can see, but no one else can? That’s the oddly compelling premise behind the new Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai, aka Seishun Buta Yarou, aka Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai. I was interested in this series because it’s by the writer of The Pet Girl of Sakurasou, and also I like bunny girls in anime.
It’s the story of a strange phenomenon called “adolescence syndrome” in which strange things start happening to young people, essentially psychological pressures in their minds leaking out into the physical world. One day the main character Sakuta encounters Mai Sakurajima, a former child actress who goes to his high school, walking around the city library wearing a sexy bunny suit. No one in the place can see her except for him, and we learn that she started becoming invisible to others when she took a hiatus from acting work. In a similar situation, Sakuta and his younger sister Kaede suffered actual physical cuts and other damage on their bodies when Kaede was bullied online, forcing them both to shun social media. Together the characters will try to unwind the mystery of what’s happening to them.
Modern anime is always set in a specific location to create a more realistic feel and to encourage fans to obsess over visiting the physical locations and posting pictures online. The Seishun Buta Yarou bunny girl anime is set in the picturesque seaside town of Kamakura, about 25 km south of Yokohama. The series is in good company: other anime set in this location include Aoi Hana (my favorite yuri anime), Your Lie in April, Tari Tari, Just Because!, Ika Musume, and Slam Dunk. Animators seem to love the excuse to make the Enoden, Japan’s oldest train line that’s been operating since 1900, a little more famous, plus the town is easily accessible from Tokyo for ロケハン loke-han, or “location hunting” which is an actual word in Japanese.
