Torako may have rebranded herself as a perfect high schooler, but she was formerly a notorious delinquent. The first episode of My Deer Friend Nokotan even referenced Mikey from Tokyo Revengers. Maybe there’s a universe where both Mikey and Torako fought in turf wars.

But this comedy anime is about the friends we meet along the way. Literally, Torako met Noko when her antlers caught on cable wires. How Noko got herself caught up in those wires is hard to imagine. Still, Torako helped Noko out of fear and kindness. What she didn’t expect was that Noko would follow her around as a new transfer student and would even threaten to expose her identity as an ex-hooligan.

Maybe Torako should’ve left Noko hanging there.
