What does a bear know about life in the big city? For Machi Amayadori’s sake, hopefully a lot! The young shrine maiden has spent her whole life in the rural mountains with Natsu, her talking guardian bear. Now, at fourteen, she wants to take a chance and attend high school in the big city. Can Natsu really prepare her for city life? Or will his wacky trials be too much for even Machi to bear?

Some people were put off straight away by this since it looked like some romantic relationship between a bear and a little girl. This isn’t what the show is about, it’s more of a father daughter friendship that takes place.

The girl wants to leave the city but the bear doesn’t want her to go, so he gives her challenges that she needs to fulfil to prove that she is capable of leaving. It’s more of an endearing slice of life show and the situations are unique enough to be interesting.

The main girl goes on to be in an idol contest and a lot of the plot involving that is really interesting.

So watch if you like slice of life and don’t mind the strange idea of the premise.
