Synopsis

Serious and generous, but a bit shy, Yuudai has been unsuccessful with the opposite gender.
Chizuru is an energetic and cheerful girl, but when it comes to boyfriends, she's been unlucky and clumsy, and never had a steady relationship. This is the first Christmas the couple spends together. Chizuru loves animals and Yuudai plans to give her a rabbit in a box, but it turns out to be... a mini donkey?! As the funny creature escapes, Chizuru goes after it, and Yuudai loses sight of them both!

The time that should have been spent together...
The important feeling that should have been revealed...
Small, but precious things that tend to be buried in every day life.
What answer will the two youngsters find while separated from each other?

Yuudai and Chizuru - their feelings and the time they spent far from each other are delicately unfolded in this double-sided pure love story told from two different perspectives!

This is one of the most unique anime experiences I have ever encountered. This should way of story telling should be done more often. Especially for love stories like this one. Tokyo Marble is basically a two episode ova about two I'll unlucky lovers who never seem to catch a break. One episode tells the girlfriends point of view and the other episode tells the boyfriend's point of view. But heres what makes this so great: both episodes are interchangeable. You can watch one and notice little details that the other OVA purposely leaves in or out. It's such a great mind trip because you read more

Tokyo Marble Chocolate is your basic tried and true romance story about a young couple simply trying to confess their feelings for one another. Both have had terrible pasts with relationships, and hope that their present one will bear fruit. But confessing to one another is easier said than done for these two.......

Story: 10/10
Wonderful!!! Everything about it was so cute and heartwarming that I can’t express enough how it touched me. It does stay true to the whole "romance" theme, all the while adding in unique twists and misunderstandings that come with it. What really stood out for me the most was the fact that read more

This will be a short review; I did not want to but after watching it, I had to write one.

The story was short yet each scene was impactful. Though clichéd, every misunderstanding and accident was a succinct representation of the things that can go wrong in a relationship. The delivery method of separately showing each perspective of the couple was a refreshing change compared to the traditional methods. Due to the nature of the story and its short length, it is hard to describe the characters without revealing the plot. What I can say is that they are an average couple in love under not read more

Tokyo Marble Chocolate is a, totaling to fifty minutes, OVA series that tells a simple, yet sweet, story of love. Usually when a series is limited on run-time it's common to see consistent issues in pacing and proper, satisfactory closure. First seeing that Tokyo Marble Chocolate only had two normal-length episodes to it, I assumed this would end up being the case, but Production I.G. has done a great job many times in the past. Luckily, that talent translates to this small work as well.

As the project was worked on by Production I.G., the studio behind Attack on Titan, it isn't a surprise to note read more
