Synopsis

There are two sides to every love story, and Boys Be... reveals what's really going on - from the guy's point of view!

Meet three normal high school guys with just one thing on their minds: girls. Quiet Kyoichi has been friends with Chiharu ever since they were young, but lately, his feelings have begun to change. Lecherous Makoto, a self-proclaimed master of the rules of romance, is ready to sweep the ladies off their feet. And Yoshihiko, a handsome sports nut, is unfortunately a bit clueless in matters of the heart.

Join this hapless trio for a year of romantic misadventures that will change their lives forever!

The characters were great too. They all were very different from each other, so I’d read more

You don't notice it at first, but this is definitely an anime worthy of a Hal Film Maker production. The animation seems bad at first, but it grows on you.

Recommendations

High school life, childhood memories and friendship. Both of them shares these terms and is indeed highly recommended.
Both are high school slice-of-life romances, though Boys Be is a bit more lighthearted than Clannad, which is the more dramatic of the two.
