This episode picked up right where episode 1 left, with Shizuku being flustered about the kiss from Haru. Shizuku has always been focused on studying and her future, and has never been interested in being close to other people. But Haru has appeared to challenge Shizuku's values. Asako Natsume was introduced as a new character, who is bad at her studies, is pretty and seems like a typical teenage girl, but has no friends. Despite her initial negativity, Shizuku helped Asako to pass a make up exam.
Episode 2 of My Little Monster was heavier on comedy but managed to do some nice character development. Shizuku and Haru continue to learn new things and cope with different emotions. The appearance of Asako and Souhei Sasahara (a member of the men's baseball team) indicate that the cast is going to expand. I continue to love the animation that is simple but detailed and full of color. Hoping that My Little Monster continues to be strong, I give episode 2 a 9 out of 10.
