I actually hate Hiromi. She's selfish, boring, and has no likeable characteristics whatsoever. For the final 4 episodes I was hoping so much he'd choose Noe, and I cried when he told her he loved Hiromi. As much as the rest of the anime was great, that bit ruined it.

Hiromi was selfish the entire time. It took her a year while living with Shin and ignoring him to realize she loved him. While Noe always believed in him the entire time and was the reason why he wanted to draw. She also did try to do anything sneaky like Hiromi did. Ex. Trying to become friends with Shin's friends. NOE ALL THE WAY!!!!

Noe. I don't even want to think about Hiromi. I seriously stopped watching right when episode 9 happened, looked up the wiki for the description of the episodes, hoped in desperation that she still had a chance, and dropped this anime when I found out it didn't end that way. I honestly wished that motorcycle would've exploded and taken Hiromi out of the picture.

Also throughout the entire show, there were many words said that would horrify some people and many a middle finger.

Noe. No contest. Hiromi had absolutely no likeable characteristics. I wish she had killed herself or something due to all that moping.

Noe was the only reason I watched this till the end, but it ended the right way, because she deserves someone better than Shinichiro (he never loved her anyway). She is a great character and not only deserves a better boyfriend but also a better anime.

Noe at first, but after watching the show over again, Hiromi deserved it more than anyone else, hands down, I'm sure if everyone watched the show again as objectively as they can, they will agree as well. I guarantee it.

The sub theme of the show was about the characters approaching there feeling in a honest way.

The only appeal they seem to have tried to give Hiromi was pity; her parents are dead, her life is so hard living with this woman who hates her and thinking the boy she loves is related to her. Well, so what? Fine, it'd be cool if her life got better, but having a hard life doesn't make her likable. The opposite; I find her to be a dreary person because of all the moping she does.

It doesn't help that in the rare cases that she gets active, she's pretty selfish and ruthless. Again, these are understandable but nonetheless unpleasant. If she were likable there would be a tension between this attraction and the repulsiveness of her actions, but since she's a bore, they just make her an ugly bore.

I initially didn't like Noe because weird, childish girls are a cliche in romantic drama anime (because of Kanon and other Key-based shows, probably), but she turned me around when she proved to be oddly perceptive and philosophically pure-minded. Her childishness wasn't pushed nearly so hard as with some I've seen, either (the girl in Air comes off as downright retarded).

The clincher for why I prefer Noe is that her story is a love story; we see Noe and Shin fall in love. Hiromi and Shin's story isn't about love, it's about contrived obstacles; they're related! (but they're not), she's dating another boy! (who doesn't care about her), she tries to run away! (but doesn't get far). It's just soap opera. We're told they're in love and then there's a bunch of angst for like ten episodes and then they (literally ) fall into each other and it's over. Actual romantic drama of any kind looks pretty good when set next to mere pulp.

While I don't think this story works very well, it isn't irredeemably broken so a sad ending for Noe isn't in of itself bad. But since I like Noe much more, I'd have preferred a story about Shin moving on from this childhood crush which has come to weigh him down. It would be at least equally interesting as what we did get and would have the added plus of going against the usual grain; Japanese romance is obsessed with childhood connections.

You took the words out of my mouth. Noe had almost the same sad past as Hiromi. But she's not going emo over it. The "love" between Hiromi and Shin is boring as fuck. Can't believe why someone prefer Hiromi. Even the useless Ai is better. Because you have a sad past doesn't mean you can act sad and bitchy all the time.
