Nobody seems to have heard about the "Adolescence Syndrome" (also known as Puberty Syndrome) – a condition that manifests itself through wild and diverse symptoms, with no apparent cause. Yet second year high schooler Sakuta Azusagawa knows it all too well. After experiencing it first-hand and seeing it manifest in his younger sister Kaede Azusagawa as well, it's definitely become a problem for him. He also knows by now that no one is going to believe funny stories about an undocumented, unresearched syndrome, so whenever a new case appears, he takes it upon himself to fix it. But how do you fix someone who is disappearing? Or who's swapping bodies? Or a person who has literally split into two people?
One of the main reasons to play Weiss Schwarz is being able to recreate the most touching or exciting moments from our favorite animated series in a trading card game. And Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai is definitely one of the best boosters ever released for this. Take the set's signature finisher, for example. Mai Sakurajima, Irreplaceable Existence will go to memory when attacked, but can be brought back to the stage using Sakuta Azusagawa, Rascal, mimicking the climactic scene wherein Sakuta confesses his feelings to Mai! Another strong example is found in Tomoe Koga, Little Devil Kouhai's activated ability, which will essentially "reset" both players' clocks - just like how she reset time and forced Sakuta to relive the same day over and over again during her story arc. The reunion of Rio Futaba's two selves can also be reenacted by merging Rio Futaba, Where to Look and Rio Futaba, Lovesick into the powerful Rio Futaba, Calm Deposition, which can also be conveniently summoned at level 2.
Basically, this latest set feels extremely fluid and true to its source material. It contains beautiful foils featuring exclusive art from the original Japanese light novel written by Hajime Kamoshida and illustrated by Keeji Mizoguchi combined with inspired and well-designed mechanics that are bound to resonate strongly with fans. It's even great for results-oriented players, as demonstrated by its strong performances in the Japanese Edition tournament scene.
The official release date for Bunny Girl Senpai is 15 November 2019 with a full booster pack and Trial Deck+ releasing on the same day. Also included in its release are Box Toppers in every display box, carton toppers, and exclusive Bunny Girl Senpai playmats.
