Synopsis

The protagonist, Kouda Mikako, is a student of "Yaza Gaku". Specialising in fashion design, Mikako dreams of becoming a fashion designer with her own brand. Living next to her is her childhood friend, Yamaguchi Tsutomu. Even though they have been close since they were young, they share a platonic friendship. However, Tsutomu has been gaining popularity, especially with the girls, because he seems to resemble a popular vocalist from a band and somehow, Mikako begins to see him in a different light. This is a story about how youths cope with dreams, love and friendship.

I might as well write a review of this anime since I was the one who provided (most of) the raws, translated it and reviewed each episode at least three times before it was released, which in my opinion counts for at least something.

Well, as much as I am loathed to put labels on what are clearly three-dimensional characters, here we have a show where Ai Yazawa pretty much presented us with what could be a psychological profile of a tsundere before such a term even came to existence. She's brassy, full of herself and can sometimes be unfairly cruel, but that is read more

Recommendations

Both series are products of Ai Yazawa. There are same characters (Mikako Kouda, Tsutomu Yamaguchi, young Miwako, Arashi and Hiroyuki) Both are about fashion and Yagazaku school. Paradise Kiss and Gokinjo Monogatari are romance and comedy. Both anime are about love and friendship.
both has a cute couple that obviuosley needs to be together, but for some reason isn't.
both are funny and romantic, and really remind me of each other.
