Well, my review will be as short as the OVA.

The main characters are the who girl and the popular boy that have never talked before, but one day they do and start becoming friends.

Even with all these cliché aspects it could be a good OVA if produced well, but how can you ~ feel ~ the characters with less than 20 minutes? This gives absolutely zero emotions because it's all so rushed and so predictable. If they had done a 13 episodes series instead there might be some potential.

The art has some problems but I like sparkles so it's kinda cute for me. Sound has read more

This is my first review so it probably won't be the best. So, what i thought of Nagareboshi Lens was it seems really interesting. I thought they could of done WAY better for the first episode because it never explained how they got together but they'll probably explain it in episode two.

I find this anime VERY cute and it reminds me SO MUCH of kimi ni todoke which i love. The characters are interesting but sometimes it's pretty cliche and predictable.

Story line is getting there it's pretty good.
Art, it's really different big eyes and modern clothing.
Music, i like it, it has that kind of read more

The best way to approach the short and sweet 流れ星レンズ (SHOOTING STAR☆LENS) anime is as a long commercial for the manga.

Shown at Ribbon Festa 2012, this animated short is targeted at readers of the manga. It takes for granted that you already know what is happening and why and will be delighted to see and hear already beloved characters coming to life.

If you are not a reader of the SHOOTING STAR☆LENS manga (as I currently am not) you may be disappointed with this brief glimpse. We are not told how our hero and heroine started dating. We are not shown read more

Well...what should I say about this OVA?Too rushed!!!!!!!!!!!!! I recommend you all to read the manga first because I swear it's better and you will enjoy youself more!

Story : 7
Well, the story itself is very beautiful and warming about the development of two middle schoolers which fell in love for the 1st time (in manga).
Judging by the fact the OVA is only 18 minutes, you barely get a thing of what's going on there.

Art : 4
Quality 0.The artwork is, in my own opinion, somewhere between so-so and terrible,I don't like it at all!!! I mean, it's as if you're playing a dating sim on read more

Anime: Hiyokoi
A very short special but sweet that simply covers a few chapters from the shoujo manga same as Hiyokoi 
reportRecommended by Dolan
Anime: Fruits Basket
"Why would this cute guy pick me?" Both heroines think of themselves in terms of not being like the girls you would think the guy or guys they hang out with would want to hang out with. Soft and fluffy story line too.

Anime: Kimi ni Todoke
they're both sparkly romances but KNT progresses alot slower than NL since its 2 season vs 1 episode

Anime: Sugar*Soldier
Nagareboshi Lens and Sugar Soldier have a shy girl/outcast as protagonist who falls in love with a popular outgoing guy who is very sweet and kind to her.
Also, both have lovely artwork.  
reportRecommended by Akarioru
Anime: Acchi Kocchi (TV)
These are soft romances. the spin being where the couples show some sort of discomfort around each other whether it be because they don't realize they like each other or because they happen to have just started dating and it is their first relationship.

Anime: Natsu-iro Kiseki
Soft fluffy slice of life featuring the middle school age group as the main characters. The characters deal with growing up.
