In October, the new show arrives as scheduled. In the blink of an eye, it was the end of the good month. Many new episodes have been updated for three or four episodes, and the legendary "three-episode rule" can be taken out for drying. Everyone's taste is different, I believe everyone has their own follow-up plan.

This October, there will be sword fights with the forbidden gods, goblin slimes will be popular before they are broadcast, and there will be the eye-catching final chapter of ghouls, which is relatively safe and eye-catching. In this environment where big fish are competing for hegemony and shrimps are sidelined, there is a fan drama that stands out and becomes a hot and dazzling dark horse.

This drama is - "Youth Pig Head Boys Don't Dream of Bunny Girl Senior Sister"

"Youth Pig Head Boys Don't Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai" is adapted from the light novel "Youth Pig Head Boys Series" by Shiichi Kamo. We may not be familiar with the name Kamo Shidaichi. But mentioning his masterpiece "The Pet Girl of Sakurasou", I believe it left a deep memory for many people.

Ya Zhitian has a delicate brushwork and is good at describing stories about youth. In his writings, whether it is the hazy emotions between adolescent boys and girls, or the details hidden under that emotion, they are all revealed to the readers one by one.

Adolescent boys and girls are different from the pure singleness of children, and also different from the numbness and indifference of adults. They are emotional and sensitive, like pure white ceramics, beautiful but easily broken.

They are humble but proud, cautious but reckless, have nothing but high spirits. The so-called youth is made up of us who are full of contradictions.

"Youth Pig-headed Boys Don't Dream of Bunny Girl-senpai" describes exactly such a story. As an animation adapted from a school light novel, it gave me a very good impression. The male protagonist who is full of gossip and the female protagonist who is not pretentious and pretentious all make my eyes shine. So, I silently added this drama to my follow-up list.

A work must have "conflict" in order to develop. There is a very interesting setting in this work - "adolescence syndrome", the author amplifies the sentimentality of boys and girls, and has ready-made symptoms one after another. These diseases can cause some supernatural phenomena, such as hearing other people's voices, suddenly switching bodies with others, etc. This is "adolescence syndrome".

Various events caused by "adolescence syndrome" are the "conflicts" that this work relies on, and the first three episodes tell the story of the male protagonist Sakuta Azusagawa and the female protagonist Mai Sakurajima.

A wild bunny girl appeared in front of Azusagawa Sakuta. Her identity was to temporarily suspend her acting career. Mai Sakurajima was a senior who attended the same high school as Sakuta.

Why do former big stars dangle in bunny costumes? In this way, the audience's interest was stirred up.

It turned out that Mai-senpai suffered from "adolescence syndrome". Her symptoms were manifested in that she could not be seen by others and could not be remembered by others, which was equivalent to directly erasing existence from others' minds. So Mai-senpai put on a bunny girl costume and walked around, trying to use this conspicuous costume to tell who could see her.

Why does this disease occur? As a big star, he should have been noticed by everyone, but now he has disappeared from the eyes of everyone. The diametrically opposite situation is intriguing.

Mai-senpai originally debuted as a child star, and later successfully transformed into a super popular actress. Because she was deceived by her manager's mother to take a swimsuit photo shoot, she was furious and decided to take revenge on her manager, so she suspended her performing arts activities and transferred to an ordinary high school.

When she came in, a solid interpersonal relationship had already formed in the class. Mai-senpai at this time is like an outlier, out of place. Her identity is too conspicuous, and others do not want to be haunted by her aura. After all, no one wants to endure the scorching sun-like gaze of others. In this regard, Mai-senpai also understands that she also naturally plays the role of air, detaching from the crowd and becoming an island.

Everyone starts out as an island, and they watch their sun rise and go to loneliness in the afterglow of the setting sun. They looked to the other side against the turbulent waters, their praying eyes crossed the sky, met another gaze, and collided. They were caught off guard, panicked but did not dare to let go. They are close to each other, and it is no longer an island that no one cares about.

Boys and girls are looking forward to friends, longing for friendship and love. They come together because of the same class, forming one circle after another that belongs to them. They subconsciously rejected those restless factors that might destroy the peace, and one after another invisible walls were erected. Like a besieged city, people inside the walls can't get out, and people outside the walls can't get in.

The male protagonist Sakuta Azusakawa is also an isolated island. Because of the influence of "adolescent syndrome", he was misunderstood as having sent three classmates to the hospital. The public opinion was very clamorous, and finally everyone knew it. As a result, he was isolated and kept away from him by all but two of his friends. Even his friend's girlfriend came to warn him to stay away from his friends.

Day after day, year after year, two isolated islands drifting in the sea meet.

Mai-senpai's "Youth Syndrome" has intensified. From the beginning, only the people nearby have forgotten her, and she has become invisible to everyone except Sakuta. Sakuta became Mai-senpai's last support, and she held onto Sakuta's hand tightly, unwilling to let go.

Sakuta figured that as long as she didn't sleep, Mai-senpai would never be forgotten. He took advantage of the time he was awake to write a long diary to record the time that belonged to them.

After three days of restless sleep, his body was approaching its limit, but he did not want to forget or lose it. Mai-senpai looked at him and secretly put down the sleeping pills in his water, she chose to give up. Mai-senpai's face gradually blurred, turned blank in the gorgeous background, and dissipated with the wind.

Two isolated islands passed by and drifted into the distance along the ocean currents.

Sakuta can't see anymore, can't think of Mai-senpai anymore, the empty room, the silent street, there seems to be eyes watching, who is it?

The bits and pieces of the past are the evidence that I once had, and the unforgettable memory is aching. The strands of fragments were pieced together into a complete figure, which appeared in Sakuta's mind.

He ran to the playground and screamed hard that he was going to break that wall. The hoarse call turned into a bond, and once again seized the far away island, they embraced and cried.

I won't let go, absolutely not.

No one is an island anymore.

Finally, I would like to give you a poem written by the English poet John Donne.

no one is an island

--John Donne

No one is an island, alone in the sea; everyone is like a little piece of dirt, connected to form the whole land. If a piece of soil is washed away by the sea, a corner of Europe will be lost, like a headland, like a manor, either yours or your friend's. Whoever dies, a part of me dies because I am included in the concept of being human. So don't ask for whom the death knell is tolling, the death knell is tolling for you.
