The animated adaptation of the light novels Hige wo Soru. Soshite Joshikousei wo Hirou ((Higehiro: After I got rejected, I shaved and did a high school runaway) may have a good time, but couldn't help that a conspiracy involving a high school girl running away from home and living with an office worker had nothing to tell.

In fact, since the title was chosen, the author seems to disagree and has currently published some publications about it. On Twitter, March 25th, the author Shimesaba wrote: "When I'm on Twitter, I get a little painful when readers make comments like "I want to pick up a girl from high school too!" I wish they would stop making jokes like that. Things like "I'll kill you!" or "I swear I'll kill this guy!" They are not things to joke around with.ยป.

The author stated in another publication: ยซI've also seen some people defend the Higehiro novels and say, "In real life it would be a crime, but we're talking about a fiction, so don't take it too seriously." But even in fiction, as long as it takes place in modern Japan, placing a minor is still a criminal offense. "Higehiro" is a story about criminal activity, make no mistake. Do not argue with others based on incorrect informationยป.

He added: "Criminal activity is something that should not be committed for any reason with the aim of living under the rule of law. They are evil acts. While there's nothing wrong with describing crimes on paper in a story, I hope you can tell the line between fact and fiction.ยป.

The series has been airing in Japan since April 5 and is confirmed with a total of thirteen episodes on the platform Crunchyroll takes care of sales in the west. On the other hand, light novels by Shimesaba and illustrated by Booota are published via the publisher's label Bunko sneaker of Kadokawa since February 2018.
