Hiyokoi is a nice and relaxing anime, its just a 1OVA Special. This is an adaptation of the manga, this OVA covers basically chapter 1 of the manga and thats it. The story is interesting, Hiyori is a really shy and small girl who had an accident and could not come to school. She was hit by a truck and was hospitalized, it is still a mystery to me how someone this small could be hit. That needs good aim lol. Anyways she comes back to school and as you might expect its not too good because of her shyness, her socials skills are low. read more

This is like a squeezed version of Kimi ni Todoke. As a huge fan of Kimi ni Todoke, I really did enjoy this short show.

Hiyori's shyness is similar to Sawako's even though she seems a little less mature than Sawako. The story, like kimi ni todoke, is told mostly through the inner dialogues of Hiyori. I really liked that part of kimi ni todoke, so I enjoyed it in Hiyokoi too.
The animation and character designs are cute. Cute things these days tend to turn ecchi, but again, like kimi ni todoke, it stays pretty.

The male lead, Hirose, is like a less responsible version of read more

Hiyokoi is an OVA movie based off the manga of the same name. It is about a girl named Hiyori Nishiyama who comes back to school after about a year. She is very shy and is very nervous. To top it off, she's VERY short. She then meets Yuushin Hirose, a guy who is taller than the average guy height and is practically friends with everyone. He attempts to make friends with her and eventually gets her to slightly overcome her shyness.

I liked the anime of Hiyokoi because it was quite fun to watch. When Hiyori gets read more

This anime is based on the manga. Hiyokoi is about a 15 year old girl who wasn't been to her highschool for a long time. She is a very shy person and is 140cm ( SMALL!! ). A guy in her class called Yuushin suddenly comes in the classroom when she introduced to herself. After that, they both sat near to each other. Could this be love?? ; D I only watched Hiyokoi without in sub titles. I understand a bit since I've read the manga. The movie seems a bit 'too' rushed. It was kind of boring. The manga is more interesting.

Anime: Kimi ni Todoke
Feeling of a shy little girl (not good at social) falling in love with a popular boy in Hiyokoi is like Sawako (not good at social) falling in love with Kazehaya (popular boy) in Kimi ni Todoke. Except there's no rivals to fight against in Hiyokoi.

Anime: Toradora!
The female protagonist of Hiyokoi -Hiyorin- have the shy character of Sawako (from Kimi ni Todoke), and have the same appereance of Taiga (from Torodora) and in terms of height Yuushin and her are the opposite of Risa and Atsushi (from Lovely Complex). The story of Hiyoko iis similiar to these 3 animes as well. 
reportRecommended by nekopaw
Anime: Lovely★Complex
Both are about two friends with very different height: While in Lovely Complex the main girl is the taller in her class and the main boy is the shortest one, in Hiyokoi the main girl is extremely short and the main boy very tall. They slowly start to develop feelings for each other. Both are very sweet.

Anime: Nagareboshi Lens
A very short special but sweet that simply covers a few chapters from the shoujo manga same as Hiyokoi

Anime: Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
They're both romantic comedies and the main girl in Hioyokoi kind of has the same fright of school as Haru.
