THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Can't wait for the next OVA and the OST is also great!

DAT KANSAI DIALECT! <3

I must say that they did a great job on the first episode.
Seeing the character animated really tugged on my heart strings. Sure it is very cliche if you don't follow the manga, but I hope it's enjoyable to everyone.

Go Haruto go, get Eba back!

I did not like the voices of Eba and Haruto... kinda annoyed they chose this part of the story, seems like your typical love story without knowing the original work. It would be more awesome if they did animate the whole series.

Good first OVA episode i really liked it alot despite the ending. They should atleasy have showed us when Haruto was trying to talk to Yuzuki and meet with her insted of stopping at the train station so we could have gotten a more satisfied ending. Just my opinion. Sorry for bad english/grammar

Animation quality is, well, as expected of a low budget OVA. Still, it was great to see everyone get animated.

I think they redesigned the characters to appeal to a broader audience. Akari looks so....off.

Animation was a slap to me too kinda but it's not well BAD BAD and considering the budget and all, it's good enough once you accept it xD (At some point I couldn't recognise Kanzaki but it the moment passed thankfully xD)
The Ova itself was better than I imagined. I never trust such ovas but it could have been so much worse. I approve! They put in enough emotion imo and finally I heard the dialect from haruto's mouth \o/ (I expected his voice dif but got used to it xD)

Overall, it was a nice effor and I'll be waiting for the next epi with joy C:

Went from something 5CMPS-ish to just another melodramatic love-triangle. Never understood the logic behind that; hopefully it recovers, the OST was great.

this was a great OVA, especially as to how they planned it out. Maybe it would've more logical to start from the beginning. but how they did things really did make it feel as though it was a anime in its own right.
I really did like the animation, didn't look to me as though it was on a low budget :/
Although i didn't like haruto's voice, the other's were great!
Hoping the next episode is as good!! >_<

The art sucked, the voice actors deplorable, except if but for Yuzuki's. It lost the impact the manga provides.

As a fan of the manga, I think I really only enjoyed it because in my head I was thinking "yay the characters are moving!" But other then that I wasn't too interested in the changes in story flow/character personalities that they did in the OVA.

Going to watch this later this year after the second one comes out which I believe is around June. They should make an official anime of this series tbh especially if you're also a fan of Suzuka

My thoughts exactly. I felt it was doing a good job up until the point where the main character was asked to be that girl's "boyfriend". 5cm per second was such a powerful piece due to its poetic re-telling of a relationship that eventually fell apart over time rather than its dramatic or romantic elements. In a sense, Kimi no Iru seems like a less "mature" version of 5cm. Of course, this is just a 2 episode OVA of an entire manga, so it probably isn't fair for me to judge it based on what I've seen. Plus there is still one episode left, so hopefully it will end nicely at least.

I watched this randomly without being aware of the manga, or even with what I was getting into ... looks like an average romance plot over two episodes, second episode not due until June... the presentation is above average, can't say i say any flaws or corner cutting, but I'm not sure why this was made at all, esp. if the manga is more interesting that a relatively straightforward story.

Nonethelss, it was entertaining, for those who like romance / slice of life type stuff... so if you want a non-bad romantic episode to watch, I guess this and (when the other half comes out) the other one would be a short time investment for a good payoff.

Personally, though, I think it needs more ninjas.

As a fan of the Manga i enjoyed watching this because it reminded me of the good times i had and the rage moments i had reading it! though i can't really speak for people that haven't read it because this ova just might seem like a generic romance/slice of life which in away it is but it has alot of good crazy moments like Dat train trap.


only thing that bugged me was the VA wasn't expecting Haruto and Rin to sound so deep haha.

Because the VA of Haruto is the same VA of Arata wataya of Chihayafuru have a very deep voice. basically this anime is harem but with one main heroine and expect to be choose in the end. it's more great if they create it like Amagami style route version because the other heroine is very cute specially asuka, akari and kanzaki.

I kinda agree with ya but Amagami is based off a Dating Sim so you could use that argument for any Harem with one Main heroine which i love to see more now adays where they give you more endings for your favorite character, Mashiroiro Symphony which recently came out kinda did the same thing just you would have to play the games Etc if you wanted a different ending!.

They didn't adapt Seo Kouji's art very well and this OVA is incredibly low budget. That and Megumi Nakajima as Yuzuki is really fucking off.

Then again, it's quite fitting. A terrible adaption of a terrible manga.
Ok™

fishcaketwice is an clown who has never even seen the original manga artwork, so has no place commenting on whether the art is good or bad.

IT SUCKED.

if this title was to ever get a full series, it better bloody not be with this half arsed studio.

If he doesn't end up with Eba at the end of this I will be pissed, I would prefer an open end as the manga hasn't finished yet. Although it seems that this is already pretty far into the story and they glanced over what happened previously. Want to see more.

Getting massive 5 Centimetres per Second vibes from this.

When I first saw the characters, I was like "WHO THE FUCK ARE THEY?". But anyways this arc is pain in a butt. Really, if everyone read the Manga then this Anime won't get too much attention....... I must say they did a good job though.

Lol at complaining to the subbers. Not the right place to complain do it somewhere else.

Kanzaki and Rin's voice are so off, even if they have great seiyuus.
Haruto and Eba's voice are passable.
The art is really off from Seo's.
And it's pretty low budget, the animation.
Lastly, why the heck did they put all the things in a flashback and start at the middle? It makes no freaking sense.
The OST might be the only thing that's good here. Oh and the Honoka pics I guess.
Really disappointing. I was looking forward to this.
Oh well.

Honestly, did you expect more out of a low budget DVD bundled with the newest volume of the manga? I really do hope they do an actual TV series later at some point.

Fourth, to begin with these screencaps argued and discuss the editing side which had many doubtful issues for example, they say "Thanks for treating brother Jack horribly the other time." they are asking to change the brother to sister to see how that flows. WE CAN'T DO THAT because Doudou is clearly saying "Jack nee-san" which means BROTHER and since you showed that screencap I assume YOU CAN BACKUP what you are claiming so you want us TO TWIST the actual translation and changing BROTHER TO SISTER. Now that's what I cap being irresponsible. We cannot do that because your point is invalid and we would be killing our script if we do such things.


I'm sry, not trying to get into that fight and all, just ... nee-san (onee-san) means sister o,o nii-san (onii-san) means brother o,o Sooo isn't he saying Sister? xD

EITHER WAY, apart from that detail, I'm still satisfied with the epi (talking abt the epi itself, not the fansub) but I wouldn't like a tv series. I can see it get boring rlyyyy fast. But that's personal opinion.

For those who are reading the manga it's awesome that they decided to animate it, however I get where you are coming from. I really like the manga, and am quite disappointed to see not only just a 2 episode OVA for the manga, but the spot in the story they chose to do. This is an absolutely pivotal part in the manga, and because it's only 2 episodes, I think there is going to be a significant change in the story.

Despite the fact that they started in the middle of the series, and only had 20 minutes to explain what had happened up till then, I think they did a decent job. Just have to wait and see what happens, and pray it's good.
