Synopsis

A Keio University (one of the top three colleges in Japan) exam candidate, Touma Inaba, is interupted when a cute young girl, Urara Kasuga, arrives at his hotel room door. She later turns out to be his cousin who he barely remembers from his childhood. Urara, who had felt something special for him (an other-than-cousinly-love), invites Touma to live with her since he has no place to stay other than the hotel room. Before taking the test, Touma meets Meiko Yotsuba, a beautiful, sophisticated woman also trying to get into Keio. Meiko gets into Keio but Touma does not, due to a cold Urara had given him shortly before. Although he did not make it, he pretends he does to earn the respect of Meiko. Touma is caught up in a love triangle with Urara and Meiko, while struggling to keep Meiko believing he's really a Keio student and still be there for Urara at the same time.

::QUICK REVIEW::
Story: 6 (Lots of taboo but its a good love story)
Art: 5 (90's Cel Art isn't my thing, looks better than DBZ)
Sound: 5 (Old school sound effects, overemphasize things with sound)
Character: 7 (Relate w/ main character very well, minus the sis-con)
Enjoyment: 8 (Lotta fanservice... she's not my cousin ^_^)
Overall: 30/50 = 6.0 (Balancing two girls and a double life can be hard)


::FULL REVIEW::
Sakura diaries is an ecchi drama comedy centered around your typical character failure named Touma Inaba. His problems start right off the bat in episode one when an unknown call girl barges in his hotel room and hinders his test performance. But read more

I admit I have to be pretty harsh here. Aside from all the unrealistic scenes that occur, this anime just let me with a bad taste in my mouth. The characters are only half-hearted in just about everything they do and it comes across in the contrived story and setting. I would not recommend this series for anyone unless you are a huge fan of '90s style animation or are in dire need of a large dose of fan service with '90s flair.

Recommendations

Stories aren't exactly the same, but unrequited love is a major dynamic in both. Mysterious girl Appears in main male character's bedroom, a love triangle then forms, male lead tries to make the right decision about life and love. Only difference is that VGA does not lack an ending... lol
Both are tackling complicated relationships and the comedy that goes with it

Sakura Diaries is a little R+ rated and tackles a taboo subject. (but its okay if they're not related by blood right?)
Lovely Complex is more PG rated and is more conventional.
Both are still funny dramas in their own right. When i was watching Sakura Diaries i kept comparing it to Love Complex throughout the entire viewing.
