Kotone finally moves to a large city for her new job. Of course, she is going to need to find a place to live first.
As expected, the beginning where Kotone, a witch/magic user arrives at the city and head to the RPG Real Estate office feels familiar. Yes, like the first episode of Gochuumon. Not to mention, Rakira does kind of has a resemblance of Rize and Aya, although her personality is more of the former as we see later. Still, it’s obvious that Kotone came from a rural area.
When Kotone opened the door to the RPG Real Estate office, she saw Rufuria trying to get Fa to put on her work uniform. It’s obvious that she doesn’t like wearing clothes. Yep, she does remind me a bit of Flatorte who also doesn’t like to wear clothes.
As expected, Kotone finds her adorable. Of course, Rakira’s pretty looks also caught Kotone’s attention too. I find it funny how Fa pulls down Rufuria’s skirt. Yep, hilarity ensures as Rufuria blushes and Kotone covers her eyes. As expected, Rufuria hits Fa on the head. I can see why the owner of RPG Real Estate choose Fa as the company’s mascot. Of course, this meant that Rufuria having a handful trying to deal with her.
With that, Kotone looks for a place to live. Yep, it does bring back memories when I went house hunting with my parents when I got a new job in the Washington DC area in 2019 and selling my old townhouse. That was before real estate prices began shooting through the roof for obvious reasons. Everyone wanted a new home and bought whatever they can get. As expected, I checked out some townhomes that really needed some work or not great places to live. That is before settling on a place that I live at now.
Given that Kotone is starting to work, she can’t get her dream home yet. Kotone finds out that the cheapest places have a lot of drawbacks such as being pain in the neck to get to, the environment looking nasty and the shared space. Of course, things could be a lot worse with places like rent being high despite being a crappy place to rent or buy. Welcome to the new reality Generation Z and Millennials face with housing that are overpriced. Even so, the idea of sharing places really upset Kotone that she cried. She won’t do well with roommates either. I can’t either as I don’t like the idea of having strangers go through my stuff.
Thankfully, Fa suggests a place that is suitable for Kotone. Sure, it’s filled with non-human creatures, but Fa can communicate with them. With the place next to Fa’s unit, Kotone goes with it. I can see Kotone becoming attached to Fa now especially given how she reacted when she first saw her. As expected, this is when Rakira, Rufuria, and Fa finds out that they will be working with Kotone as they introduce themselves.
Of course, we find out a bit about the three girls. Raikara used to have short hair and is a knight skilled at various weapons. She is also Rufuria’s childhood friends that she relies on. I find it funny how other girls confess their love to Raikara because of her short hair, which is what bothered her a lot. Also, Raikara’s knight outfit is very revealing, which she finds embarrassing, although Kotone finds it looking cool.
On the other hand, Raikara knows that Rufuria can’t sleep without her stuffed animal despite having a serious, hardworking personality. Yep, I can believe that. Despite being a priest, she would rather have a more important job in the castle than working at a real estate agency. Yep, I can understand these struggles. Also, it’s obvious that Rikara and Rufuria gets along very well. The first job is not always the one you want, just a starting point.
As for Fa, she is there because the owner, Satona finds her adorable and takes her in. The funny thing is that she dumps the responsibility on Rufuria since she doesn’t like dealing with children.
In the second half, a celebrity is finding a new place to live. Of course, Rufuria shows her all the fancy and expensive places, which is not what the client has in mind. Apparently, Kotone notices the place that might be suitable for her after the client noticed the flower.
After all, she showed her a cabin in a rural area, which is something the client is looking for all along. It had a field of Gustaf flowers, which she liked. This makes me wonder if Kotone has beginners’ luck or this came from her own experiences. Either way, Kotone finally finishes her first day of work.
Overall, this series has a bit more fanservice compared to other Kirara series as it’s usually subtle, but still an enjoyable first episode. I already sense the obvious pairings. Also, looking forward to seeing the girls possibly running into Satona, their boss next time.
