From the description I was expecting some slice of life, possibly with some Hot Spring antics thrown in.
Only watched the first episode because I was bored and suffering from insomnia.
This is... interesting.
In the first episode our heroine is shown to have a normalish life. Her mother is a bit of a loser in life, but our heroine has her head screwed on straight. She has a childhood friend who obviously has a crush on her, though she has no clue.
I think we're in for a nice lazy development of these typical day in the life "plot" threads. Then- boom! Our heroine's mother decides to run off with a man, abandoning their home and her debts- and not take her daughter with her.
(I should have seen it coming with the heroine's complaints about a boring life- but the framing led me to believe the story was going to be her learning to appreciate her boring life, not exploding it).
Our Heroine asks: "What kind of parent goes on a moonlit flit without her child?"
Oh well, at least she's going to get to meet her estranged grandma who disowned her mother for being... well, the kind of person who dumps her daughter on grandma.
So she runs to tell her childhood friend, who seeing the situation mans up and confesses to her. Boom- another shock to her world view.
Okay, but at least she gets to live in this cool hot spring resort with her loving grandma... who's still pissed at her worthless daughter and plans for our heroine to earn her keep through slave labor!
And that doesn't even get into the beatings, or the disastrous start with her roommate who tells our heroine: "just die!", and the uncle who face lights up at the chance to take revenge for all the pain his older sister put him through.
Our Heroine: "I've never been so upset in my life!"
Well, You Got Spunk girl, I like that in a heroine.
I'm gonna have to watch this one a little bit more.
