Synopsis

The story revolves around four teens—the good-looking twins Yuuta and Yuuki Asaba, the effeminate Shun Matsuoka, and the class head Kaname Tsukahara—who have known each other since early childhood. While they are not necessarily good or bad friends, they continue to hang out well into high school. The half-Japanese transfer student Chizuru Tachibana joins the circle of friends in this comedy about the everyday life of adolescence.

I myself think that Kimi to Boku is a must watch show. I personally think that it doesn't matter when and how often you watch it either. Kimi to Boku is one of those anime's where you can come home from a rough day of work and watch. For me, I thoroughly enjoyed Kimi to Boku and I hope that after reading this review, you will too.

I really liked the story in Kimi to Boku. I like it's simple school life style and I myself believe that the way the way they went about making this genre work, and not get boring, was really read more

Kimi to Boku... You and me. In Japanese, this is a rather informal and comfortable way of saying the English equivalent, and it is a fitting title for the series. Though certainly not the most "exciting" show to air on Japanese television, it becomes strangely alluring in its own way, and leaves viewers wanting more.

Story: 9
The story is rather laid back, not too complex. It doesn't focus on about saving the world, helping a friend in dire distress, or even falling in love (that's not to say that there aren't any sweet dilemmas present). It's a slice of life that revolves around the theme of read more

Kimi to boku...
... well of course one of my all time favourites!
Male or female, old or young; it's an anime for everyone!

Let us begin with the Story:
It's simple, not too complex - but that's why it's so wonderful watching it! Because everything that happens, happens so naturally, without any kind of pressure. It's such a pleasant story! And as the story goes on, you might begin to care about these guys!
That's the next strong point; the characters! When I started watching it, I liked them all form the very first minute, the very first episode! They've got all their own personality, filled with their own read more

I HATE SCHOOL COMEIDES and sentimental twaddle and will not watch "cute girls doing cute things." -- BUT I LOVED KIMI TO BOKU. -- It 's as easy to watch and as mesmerizing as a trout stream in the sunshine. It just flows along, easy, and happy, with the occasional surprise. Like potato chips I kept consuming one episode after another and was surprised when I hit ep 12. With only one ep to go I was glad to know that a second season is slated for Spring 2012.

It is a simple slice of life about four boys who have read more

While H.C is on a university setting, KTB is on High School but it has similar pace, similar friendships and even characters with similar personalities (the serious hardworking guy that wears glasses and is in love with a much older woman (Mayama/Kaname), the funny guy that always makes parodies (Morita/Chizuru), a girl from their age that is very small and used to be closed to others until she met them (Hagu/ Mary), a sensitive kind guy (Takemoto/ Shun), a girl that has an unrequited love for the serious guy (Yamada/Hisako).

Anime: Natsume Yuujinchou
Both are slice of life, very easygoing and heartwarming stories. I definitely felt that Kimi to Boku reminds me of Natsume Yuujinchou without any supernatural elements. Both also have very soft and sweet ED themes. There are cats in both series that play a definite role. The one major difference is KtB focuses on a group of friends, while Natsume Yuujinchou focuses on just a few characters.

Anime: Tsuritama
Coming of age stories about overcoming social aloofness and awkwardness with a little help from friends and in this case, boys in high school. KtB has a charming romantic subplot while Tsuritama shows how hobbies can be encouraging and shared passions. There are also cheerful characters who push the story forward.

Anime: Ouran Koukou Host Club
Remove Haruhi and Mori, remove the extreme rich school setting and make them all "commoners" and you´ll get Kimi to Boku. Just imagine Ouran without the boys being hosts but instead, Childhood friends, and with a more slow pacing. You´ll get a cheerful mixed blood blonde, a serious intelligent megane, funny twins, and a fluffy boy that likes cute things living their daily lives in extreme fun.
Also, although both center in friendship, both have hints of a love triangle (a straight one) XP

Anime: Isshuukan Friends.
The atmosphere in both are very, very similar. The shows live from their character interactions, how the main characters get closer to each other and create bonds. Also, both have a similar art style, very light and calming. While Isshuukan Friends is a little more dramatic, you'll definitely love one if you enjoyed the other.
