Nanami Takahashi welcomes the start of her high school life with great expectations of making as many friends as possible. There is much talk among the girls about a popular boy, Motoharu Yano, who has 2/3 of the girls in his middle school liking him. When Nanami asks Yuri Yamamoto, the girl sitting next to her, about Yano, the latter curtly replies that she dislikes him. Nanami is clueless of who Yano is until the day of the class nomination when she made a fool of herself by calling the name of her new friend wrongly. It turns out that she has actually met Yano along the corridors (unaware of his true identity) and he tricked her by providing a random name, resulting in the embarrassing incident in class. Nanami was initially mad at Yano but after a few encounters with him, she begins to find herself liking him.

My review will be different. I might save you some time:

The first half of the show (up through episode 12) was simply wonderful, hovering between 8/10 and 9/10 for me. I don't even mind what happened on episode 12 — I thought they were both right and both acted right.


Between episode 13 and the end, it kept drawing out, and out... and out. It became a true shoujo soap drama where one character picks on the tiniest little things and makes the relationship unnecessarily difficult, while the other character can't get away from the past. It was slow and tiresome. read more

''They say that a memory.. is something you reconstruct depending on small fragments of recollections in your mind. They say that remembering is the same as seeing an illusion. What is existence? What if.. we had stopped there, or if we'd turned the corner... What if we hadn't stumbled over pebbles, or ever gotten lost, what if we'd never stopped.. What if back then.. what if.. what if.. Innumberable small choices led me onto the road I'm on now. When I was right, and when I was wrong. I was always me. You, him, anyone, everyone.. we're all right now. It's alright now. The sad read more

Bokura ga Ita is an anime for romance and drama lovers. I, personally love the genre so I enjoyed BgI to its fullest (mind you, not as much as something like Kanon), however, BgI really leaves you with overwhelming emotions.

The story revolves around Takahashi Nanami and Motoharu Yano, two high schoolers who unexpectedly fall in love. As the series moves on, we get to see the ups and downs of their relationship that eventually climaxes when both of them must truly mature or move on - the choice being particularly difficult for Takahashi. Throughout the story, the viewer is introduced to various problems every read more

Okay so let me explain you a thing here.

I'm very close to dropping this show. VERY close. And there's a lot of reason's.

Story: 7

At first it seems like your typical high school romance, until they drop a bombshell on you. And I love that, it makes things interesting and entertaining. BUT. BUUUUUT. There are a few things that urked me. I can't spoil anything so I can't exactly tell you what but trust me if you're sane you will understand what I mean. Around episode 16 things just kinda get grueling and unless you're team Yano you're going to be so very angry read more

Anime: Lovely★Complex
Same sort of high school dating theme, similar art style, but bokura is a lot more serious.

Anime: Kimi ni Todoke
Both are slow developing romances, but leave large impacts on your heart and mind and are full of drama-- making you want to claw your screen to pieces :] (but we all know that's why we love the drama)

Anime: Peach Girl
Peach Girl and Bokura ga Ita pretty much belong to the same category - they contain a lot of drama and romance. These series are perfect especially for girls but they go to some boys too.

Anime: Sukitte Ii na yo.
Both have anti-social girls who unexpectedly fall in love with the school most popular boys.

Anime: Ao Haru Ride
When it comes to connections, Bokura ga Ita and Ao Haru Ride build on that with their characters. The main male and female protagonist build their relationship through interactions. Throughout both series' progressive stories, they face with memories of the past. The main male protagonist from both series has a similar personality as well. Yet deep down, they do value the people around them. As a romance/shoujo, expect relationship angles and drama to ensure. Recommended for people interested in shoujo with elegance. 
reportRecommended by Stark700
Anime: Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou
They're both shoujo titles which possess a very believable romantic theme between It's two leading protagonists. Also, similar jokes and animation are used throughout both series which denote how similar these two titles really are.
