My Senpai Is Annoying Episode 1 Spoilers
If it weren’t for her senpai Harumi Takeda, Futaba Igarashi’s life would be perfect. She lives in the city and has a new job. But she finds Takeda, who is her co-worker, incredibly annoying. In the pilot episode, Futaba will be irritated after being treated like a child by her tall and boisterous senpai. But even she will notice how he always takes care of her. He steps in if she is harassed at the office. If she’s drunk, he takes her home. Whenever she makes an error with her work, he is there with her to apologize to the boss. But neither she nor he might entertain any idea of a romance with each other. In fact, if she broaches the subject, he will probably say that he views her as a child, referring to her height and irritating her further.
One day, while commuting together, Takeda will catch a man filming under Futaba’s skirt and will throw him over his shoulder with a judo move. Although this might make Futaba less irritated at him, that moment will not last long, and their hilariously antagonistic relationship will continue.
