Of course, the spring season is so packed with shows that I can’t possibly cover them all. With that, it’s time to share my short impressions on the remaining shows that I do not plan to cover.
Shachiku-san wa Youjo Yuurei ni Iyasaretai
I must admit the first episode is very endearing, mostly because of how cute Yuurei is. She apparently stays in a storage room at Shachiku’s workplace. I find it interesting how she gets away stealing rice balls thinking it’s offerings and nobody notices after. Of course, she notices how overworked Shachiku is.
As expected, Shachiku works as a careerwoman. I must admit that the way Shachiku dresses reminds me of Kobayashi as she dresses in a similar way, although her ponytail is a bit longer. She also works as programmer and overworked as you would expect from a cut-throat company because late state capitalism. Therefore, I work for the Federal Government instead at a startup or Big Tech.
As expected, Yuurei uses a voice changing megaphone to scare Sachiku to go home. Of course, she eventually finds her and become enamored by Yuurei’s adorable looks. Also, it’s enjoyable to see the backstory of Yuurei stealing rice balls and her plan to get Sachiku to go home. Overall, it’s a nice and cute iyashikei comedy show so far.
While it’s disappointing that Sora Iro Utility was just a one-episode anime short. Of course, there is another anime that involves women golfing which is an original story. From a glance, it met expectations of what I expected.
The first episode focuses on Eve who disguises as Chris Christina for some money to make the actual person look good. What is interesting is that she only uses three clubs and somehow, she brute force it and using special techniques. I can see why she is known as the “Rainbow Bullet”. Believe it or not, in the second match against an actual golfer, she shot through a tree, and it made it without the ball bouncing off.
As expected, she is doing it for the money, not because she enjoys the sport. Apparently, her caddy and older sister, Lily runs an orphanage and a bar. I can see why the bar part will get them into trouble as the cops show up and Eve literally bribes the cop with what looks like 6000 euros.
Of course, we see the second main character, Aoi with her manager Amane. Yep, the part that Aoi says she loves Amane is interesting. Is she saying it as a joke, or she is for real? Either way, Aoi is the opposite of Eve as she plays golf because she enjoys the sport instead of for money. She eventually challenges Eve in a match not involving money.
Somehow, she manages to shoot a little bit further than Eve, although it’s still close. This makes me wonder how their relationship will play out given their differences in play style. We’ll see as the story goes on. Still, it’s funny how Lily gets excited over Aoi being Japanese since she says Japan is the “Land of Anime” and mentions Gundams. Of course, Aoi has no idea what she is talking about. That and the Pac Man on Aoi’s golf ball makes it obvious who is funding the show’s production. It will be funny if we start seeing references to other Bandai Namco franchises by throwing some The Idolmaster references in as well.
With that, these are my first impressions of what I am actively watching. I will share final reviews of these shows once they finish airing.

Shachiku is a precious show with a mix of Hanamaru Kindergarten and Gakuen Babysitters. I dig it. Excited to meet the other kawaii little ghosts. Hope one of our heroines’ coworkers has a thing for her. Maybe her kouhai or cubicle neighbor?
Birdie Wing is a pretty good shonen golf show. Not sure why some thought it’d be chill like Sorairo Utility. You could tell from the character designs it would be more action packed. Excited for more.
Shachiku is by far a cute show, but Is good that I am no corporate slave as I don’t need to work overtime.
Not too surprising at the very least, but I guess the golfing action should be interesting, especially the character development.
