Lamune is nothing less than a simple light-hearted, comedic romance. But even then it is fairly enjoyable.

The Story: 6/10
In Lamune, every episode begins with a flashback from the past, detailing a section of the childhood relationship of the two main characters, Nanami and Kenji. What was depicted in the flashback is then, in one way or another connected to the main story which admittedly is not much. Lamune adopts a storyline we’ve seen too many times in anime- the ‘childhood friend romance’. Even so, it is one of the best to take advantage of this.

Lamune is a Slice of Life, Romance, Comedy, Drama about a boy (Kenji) and girl (Nanami) who grew up together and lately have begun to have feelings for each other, but don’t admit to them.

Both of them are about childhood friends which are almost like brother and sister. But when they have grown up the question is: are their feelings still the same?

And both animes are really cute and pure love stories, you really feel happy when you are watching them.

If you liked Kimikiss, I think you'll enjoy Lamune, and viceversa.
Both series deal with the strong bond between childhood friends who ultimately fall in love. Also, both are episodic in nature, and both are very calm, relaxing animes (there's very little in the way of angst or drama in either of these).

If you enjoyed one then you should enjoy the other.
