Character Development:

One of the most striking things about Domestic Girlfriend is the depth of character development. The main characters, Natsuo, Hina, and Rui, all undergo significant growth and change over the course of the series.

Natsuo starts out as a shy high schooler and an aspiring writer, and as the story carry forwards Natsuo become more and more understanding towards his own feelings and he also learned to accept the harsh reality that he faces afterwards. The shy boy become responsible, blunt and more dedicated towards his dream of becoming a Novelist.

Hina, on the other hand, begins the series as a strict and reserved teacher, but as she always had this carefree but yet entangled side of her which only Natsuo and Rui had known and witnessed. Just like Natsuo, she learns to accept the reality explore the possibilities and become more responsible towards her action of courses.

Rui the most dynamic character of the anime, who transforms from an introverted character entangled with the drama happening in her family from leaving of her father with a mistress to seeing her own big sister trying to do the same with another married man, then having a new family with the same boy with whom she formed an unattached relationship. From finally having a feeling for someone to detaching from that feelings as she tries to accept the reality herself. Rui has to go through much more emotional ups and downs to figure out her own feelings and navigate the complex relationships around her.
