Everyone has a circle of friends they hang out with. But even within a small group there are smaller groups of friends, best friends and, here's where it gets complicated, boyfriends and girlfriends. Sometimes relationships just develop in a way where you're not exactly sure what you are to the other person. Which is the problem Tsumiki has when it comes to Io. Io's as tall and easygoing as Tsumiki is short in both temper and stature, but he also seems to be totally clueless about how she's starting to feel. Yet, at times, he's almost too affectionate. It's just confusing and irritating. And their prankster friends Mayoi and Sakaki aren't much help. Especially Mayoi, as it gives her one more thing to tease Tsumiki over. Hime, the fifth member of their usual gang of five isn't much better, because she's not really well connected to reality anyway. Which leaves Tsumiki stuck in a quandary. Are she and Io just best friends? And is it worth risking that for what Tsumiki wants?

“Um, m-marriage is where your life goes to drink.”
When I first saw this anime while browsing for brand new anime releases, this anime came into view. My first thoughts… Probably just one of those cliché anime comedy romances. Well I got the comedy romance part right, but the cliché part I couldn’t have been any more wrong. Forgive me Otaku God for calling this anime cliché *goes on hands and knees* The jokes are quite fresh and new, and the romance is so adorable your most likely going to die from potential blood loss coming out of your nose.

Normally someone wouldn't even bother to look at an anime that admits to have cliched characters in its synopsis. Nowadays, I normally wouldn't even touch an anime that looks like it could turn into a harem. However, the cover of Acchi Kocchi just attracted my attention so much that I just couldn't resist its cuteness. No one can. Thus, I started to watch the first episode, having low expectation and knowing it could turn into a horrible school harem. Upon finishing the first episode however, I found myself an easy-going little comedy gem.

The plot usually starts off with the main male character Io meeting up read more

I usually see myself as a laid-back person more than anything. Because of that, the genre-less genre of "slice of life" appealed to me. With that eager and naive mindset, I dove head first into the world of...well...ordinary life. I first began with '"Lucky Star", but the overwhelming amount of references was beyond my knowledge. I then tried "Nichijou", but despite it's charm, I didn't feel that "love at first sight" spark. With that being my interpretation of this genre, I casually shied away.
Somewhere down the line, I found "Acchi Kocchi". I was somewhat reluctant due to my earlier experiences, but something about the cover read more

First time writing a review for an anime, why would I pick this anime for my first review? The only reason is because... IT'S TOO CUTE ;3

This anime really makes me wonder sometimes, why isn't life more happy? ;3
Reality seems more stressful, but I guess this is why cute slice of life shows the happy part of our lives ;D

Story (8): There's not much of a story as it's basically a cute slice of life, sort of like Lucky Star. The main characters have a little love story going on and random things happen, that can make you laugh or drown in how 'kawaii' read more

Non-sense comedy, nice characters and both series are hilarious.

Anime: Nichijou
Although the comedy in Acchi Kocchi isn't as extreme as Nichijou it definitely has the same amount of laughs with an added bit of cuteness.

Anime: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou

-Both animes are compiled of short stories, and are full 30 minute episodes. 
reportRecommended by MagicFlier
Anime: Hanamaru Youchien
The character Koume is Hime
Both shows have a love interest that is oblivious to their advances.
Both animes are cute and both of the main characters are kind and wear glasses.

The difference being that Hanamaru Youchien is set in a kindergarten and Acchi Kochhi is set in a school
