Technically, this picture of Mei will be classified under a “loli fanservice” tag due to the fact that they look something like 12-13. Right?
(And I am still in disbelief…)
First, look at the school. I always thought that the school was a bit too big for a primary school. I mean, you have all the hi-tech equipment that children should not know. Yes, you can argue that they are in the future where all the kids are insanely IT-knowledgeable, but…
Let’s review two conversation evidences.
“However, that happened during primary school right?”
NOTICE THE “happened“. It is not happens, or happen or is happening but HAPPENED. It is in the darn past, which means that they have definitely graduated from primary school.
It’s all right. That’s all right. They are still middle school students. That is due to the fact that they have just graduated from primary school to move up.
“Didn’t that happen a long time ago?”
“Well, Mei is still traumatized by it.”
That is in fact the conversation that came next but i do not want to include too many screenshots of the same thing. So, it’s a long time ago. The evidence seems to hint that they are now high school students, though it might be that for young middle school students, 3 months is a long time, right?
“The last time you are here is during the opening ceremony of high school.”
I am hitting myself on the wall a few times whenever I see this line. I am still in distinct disbelief (and alliteration ain’t awesome).
Did Mei just say high school? High school students generally range from 14-18, but they are definitely not loli characters by any chance. The fact that they are not exactly first year students (aka freshmen) meant that they are definitely older rather than younger. This is not a loli show. I think. Just when I am forcing myself to be convinced that the 12 year old-like characters of Manabi Straight are in fact lolis, this last picture nailed it.
Look at the sign of the school.
******* High School.
I have been deceived. Have you?
