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

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.
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.
