Risa and Otani are always being laughed at as the comedy duo. Risa, a girl, is taller than the average girl, and Otani, a boy, is shorter than the average boy. The two are always bickering and even their teacher sees them as a comedy act. But as their friendship develops, so do Risa's feelings toward Otani.

I really, really, really loved LoveCom.

It was cute, insightful, hilarious and endearing. It was my most anticipated episode every week. I always wanted more. I want more now even though I know it's over!

The story is about the tallest girl and the shortest boy in class and their search for love in high school. It turns out they're both kooky, funny and energetic. They're also perfect for each other... too bad they don't see that. The story isn't complicated or new, but it was told so well that it crawled into right into that soft spot in my heart.

At first glance you think this is one of those normal school romance, boy meets girl, girl meets boy, type anime. Well it\'s not.

It\'s a completely different take on the usual theory. A girl who towers over her crush, a boy who may be short and sees eye to eye with most other girls, still gets fans.

As Risa realizes her love for him, ever so slowly, she finally admits to it, but not only is Otani short, but he is very dense, too dense.

So now, Risa tries all she can to get him to be her boyfriend.

The story is very unique, with many twists read more

Girl meets boy and girl likes boy. But girl is also half a foot taller than boy and thus, epic drama ensues!

S T O R Y - I don't read/watch a lot of shoujo, but from the start, I figured it was a pretty basic plot and as a result, probably a pretty generic story. I was right -- it's a lot of what you would typically expect from shoujo: lots of silly romantic drama, lots of hilarious shenanigans, and the your handful of cute, fluffy moments scattered throughout that always feel like an shot of diabetic sweetness straight to your black, black heart.

You love love? Then you're going to love this anime!

The story itselves seems very standard at first glance, but it isn't. Risa, the main character, is an girl who is taller than the average girl. She wants an boy that's longer than her, but then something happens. She and Otani, a very short boy from her class, are often being laughed at, because they look and act like an popular comedy duo. Although the fact they're being laughed at and are bickering all the time, their friendships start to grow and Risa even starts to like Otani. From here on the story has a lot read more

Anime: Toradora!
Both Lovely Complex and Toradora involve a girl and boy who act harshly to each other but then end up becoming friends and helping each other try to get together with their love interests. Eventually, the main characters began to develop romantic feelings for each other...
I adore both of these series'. <3

Anime: Kimi ni Todoke
Both Kimi ni Todoke and Lovely Complex both deal with a very awkward love between two individuals that progresses very slowly. And during the show, the side characters support the two main characters and have their own little romantic dramas. The characters and style of the show feel very similar, even though lovely complex is a little more comedic than Kimi ni Todoke,both have their funny moments...Sawako and Risa make the most interesting facial expressions!

Anime: Bokura ga Ita
Same sort of high school dating theme, similar art style, but bokura is a lot more serious.

Anime: Itazura na Kiss
Both series are the typical shoujo romance, with both sets of main characters not liking each other in the beginning.

Anime: Ouran Koukou Host Club
Pretty much the same, its just that Ouran is more focused on humor and LoveCom on romance. Love them both SOO much :D

Anime: Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
Also has that fun crazy hillarious love story vibe to it. I find that the drawing style is also similar.
