Reception's Nadia Oxford and's Deb Aoki comments on the manga's realistic portrayal of a high school girl who is a victim of bullying.[7][8] Pop Culture Shock's Katherine Dacey criticises the mangaka's artwork saying that Sakurai "has a limited repertoire of character designs, and a tendency to draw vaguely alien faces with bulging eyes and foreheads."[9] Casey Brienza at Anime News Network commends the manga's ability to seamlessly "shift from human-sized perspectives to toy-sized ones and back again".[10]
