Pachinko Pop’s review published on Letterboxd:
Ritsuko, an artist and sister of a TV writer who was childhood friends with Tora, is a cool character. She is strong-willed and focused on her art. In fact, her & Tora’s relationship begins in conflict when he accidentally makes a mark on her painting, again twisting the format a bit. The beginning is a little slow, about Tora taking care of the shop while his family takes a trip, but it’s nice in that it illustrates how much he misses them when they’re gone.
