Happy New Year, and welcome to our first choice of the Winter 2018 season! And what a wonderful start it is. This was an absolutely charming and heartwarming episode, from the animation and art, to the music, writing, and voice acting. This adaptation is being done by a writer I respect, and it’s the director’s first foray into heading an anime after having worked on several others including Yama no Susume. I think we’re in for a lovely, relaxing journey, so lay out those tents, build those fires, and get yourself comfy.
PS: This is a heavy edit, not an original TL
