When Shimizu Mokomi was a child, she created her own imaginary world. She would have conversations with stuffed toys, stones, and plants. She also could sense the emotions of inanimate objects. Due to this, she was considered as a weird kid and scolded by people. Mokomi stopped going to school when she was in the 5th grade of elementary school. She eventually graduated from high school by taking correspondence courses. She continued to spend most of her time talking with the things in her room and indulging in her fantasy world. She didn't always stay inside, though. Her older sibling sometimes took her out. At the age of 20, Mokomi began working part-time at a small factory on her mother's recommendation. Her job was to pick out defective items. A year later, Mokomi still has her part-time factory job, and she does her job well. Sometimes, she talks to things in the factory as if they have feelings. This causes trouble at the factory. She decides she doesn't want to work at the factory anymore. On her 22nd birthday, someone visits her. (Source: AsianWiki) Edit Translation

Family focus

Mokomi is an eccentric girl who can experience animism. But more eccentric is her family consisting of control freak mother, passive father, outspoken grandfather, and a brother who seems normal. This drama shows the character growth of Mokomi into a more confident, and socializing person. Along with this, she discovers her true purpose, and her career. Subsequently, this also transforms her family.

Yuya, the ML(?), is less of companion and more of facilitator for Mokomi. There is hardly any romance and backstory for him. One never gets to know why he considers his bicycle as friend. If it weren't for Mokomi and Yuya calling each other informally, they might have well pass as good friends. In this sense, the ending not focused about him made sense.

What was enjoyable? Mokomi's stint of having imaginary friends reminds of our own childhood days. The struggles of feeling awkwardness in socializing, and the difficulty in adapting to outside world were relatable. The consequent transformation of both her and family was good and gives off good message that letting go heals the scars of past.

What could have been better? Since focus is family, one can't complain about Yuya. But her brother scenes and transformation was compromised given the severity of his situation. Same could be said for her mother. It was hurried ending but manages to give closure to everyone.

It was a well produced show especially those animism scenes where so good. Acting was good especially Koshiba Fuka's. I hardly remember if any songs were present. There were only some bgm which was good and suitable.

Mokomi: Kanojo Chotto Hendakedo is good but wish it focused beyond family.
