Synopsis

Sana Kurata has a charmed life. Not only is her mother is a famous, award-winning writer, but she's the star of the hit TV comedy "Child's Toy" while still in the fifth grade. But Sana's biggest concern is Akito Hayama, a pint-sized hellion who's organized the boys in their grade-school class into a mass of unending noise and violence. With the help of Rei, her manager, chauffeur and "pimp," Sana is determined to win back control of the classroom from her new arch-enemy. But as her crusade continues, Sana moves further into Akito's life, and finds that he might not be entirely bad...or entirely safe.

This may be the first and last review I ever write.

Kodocha was the very first anime series I watched from start to finish. Yes, this show was definitely worth finishing. Overall, this anime is a 10, even though outward appearances don't suggest so. Never judge a show solely on its art.

My friend referred me to Kodocha, saying I'll definitely like it, but at the time I wasn't interested in anime, so I wasn't sure.

I was curious enough to watch it. Admittedly, I was really not impressed with the beginning of the show (Beginning as in, the first five minutes. I guess I saw the read more

My Kodocha Review

Kodocha started as a Manga in 1995. Then an anime in 1996 and the dub version in 2005. I really love Kodocha. I Love watching It. This show makes me very happy and it's so crazy, wild, and funny with cool songs and I really love it. This is my review.

Story 10-10
Kodocha Is about Sana who is ten years old And she has her own TV show called Child's Toy. She is very hyperactive, crazy, funny, wild and is so very fun to watch. And she is in school and the other kids in her school are very bad in class. The classroom read more

I must say I will always stick and love to this anime because it was the first romance anime i have ever watched. 1 month before i watched this anime i didn't even know what anime was until my friends told me and then i found kodocha no omocha. This anime may look like a kiddy show but it really isn't. There is A LOT of drama later on in the series and i cried at some points watching this series. The plot is the best part about this story, it mainly revolves around drama and romance where a famous child actor called Sana Kurata read more

Both are about kids in elementary. The energy in both series is fast paced and exaggerated, and feature cool male leads. Very cute, and very similar. Even the main characters in both look alike.

There both great story's and the characters do more than ust look alike. This is like kodocha note Kodocha is marmalade boy on crack!
I consider Kodocha the sister show to Fruits Basket.

It has the same Japanese director and English dubbing company.
Voice actor ( Fruits Basket / Kodocha)
Laura Bailey (Tohru Honda / Sana Kurata)
Jerry Jewell (Kyo Sohma / Akito Hayama)
John Burgmeier (Shigure Sohma / Rei Sagami)

its exactly like kodocha except thers this cute baby ruu anyway the hcaracters are alike in every way kanata is like akito and miyu is like sana i seriously recomend you watch this
Think of "Super GALS" in the elementary school and you have "Kodomo". Both have similar feel and style. I LOVED them both.
Both shows have comedic elements and fun, but mainly deal with mature and dramatic situations, and mysteries revolving around the female leads.
