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.

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

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

This is my first time writing a review, so please be gentle, but Kimi to Boku more than deserves something nice being said about it for once. I'm a huge fan of the manga, so I'm a little biased, but, I'll keep focused on what my thoughts are for the anime only.


The plot of this series revolves around five high school boys who have known each other since childhood. Kimi to Boku falls under the 'slice of life' category, because that's exactly what it is. If you're expecting something that's action packed or has a fast pace, this anime will likely disappoint you, because it's read more

Kimi to Boku is a series about a group of four (later five) teenage boys and them finding things to do in their everyday lives. And...that's it, really.

KtB is truly a slice-of-life show, but I am of the opinion that even SOL series deserve actual plots and in this way, KtB falters. There isn't much plot to speak of. Most of the time, the "plot" deals with the boys doing ho-hum everyday things, like reliving childhood memories, drawing manga, or even contemplating what to do because they're bored (I kid you not). Every now and then, things get somewhere interesting - for example, the cultural read more

Anime: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
Same kind of humor, about teenaged boys trying to figure out life.

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: Hachimitsu to Clover
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). The difference is, instead of an older guy that is part of the group (Shuuji),  read more

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

Both are anime about childhood friends in the same school. They have similar art too.
