The titular heroine reminded me of Haruhi Suzumiya... in that she would be almost completely morally disreputable if it weren't for her enthusiasm! With the 4th-wall-breaking CGI comedic flourishes I was also reminded of Amélie, though less winsome and snug. Still, it gave some chuckles and was affable enough. Half-a-star added for Mirei Kiritani's gurning expressions and howls of rage! She uses her face wonderfully!
