Before I begin, you can probably tell from the scores, but I have nothing good to say about this anime. Keep reading if you would like more detail on what I thought was bad about it.

Very simple romance story. Couple love each other (5%), relationship strained by circumstances(90%), guess the end(5%). (Percentages are of estimated time used)
Of course, even a simple story can be made entertaining in the right circumstances.......but that doesn't apply here.

The art is a bit dated, but along with the sound, it mostly does it's job, except, I'm not sure if it was the character art, the voice-acting, or a combination of read more

This story was fairly average, the art and sound are nothing spectacular but are pretty decent for an ova created 8 years ago. While watching this ova, the first part kind of dragged on while the end just felt rushed. It could have been a lot better if there was more depth to the characters or if there had been a true conflict, but the little conflict that there was was just brushed off and never really allowed to develop. Granted, there are time constraints in an OVA, but I was still expecting...something.

Bottom line: If you want to see some fluffy, feel-good story, read more

Anime: Tokyo Daigaku Monogatari
Both: losing love as a character goes to university. Miscommunication. Bad boyfriends. And a typical 'happy' ending.

Warning: Tokyo Daigaku is certainly much more ecchi/ero than First Kiss Monogatari.
