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


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.

Wow after watching the first OVA, I am really interested. Both Eba and Kanzaki are cute! Is this getting a full season anytime soon?

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.

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

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.

Also, the art isn't as off as everyone is saying it is. If you compare the art style of the manga in its early chapters to that of the more recent chapters, namely looking at Eba for this example, there is quite a change. The anime is somewhat a mix of the two, but if I had to choose, I'd actually say the anime more resembles the more recent chapters art style. It may not be a perfect replica of the manga art, but it is definitely similar.

Early Eba:

Honestly stop bitching about speedsubs... if u want something better learn the gd language.

Really nice OVA, even they didn't show everything from the start the small flashbacks really worked out for them.

When is next ova releasing?
huh?

I didn't find this horrible direction to be bad at all, just because i'm reading manga. Feels bad man.
Rin's and Kanzaki's seiyuu are a good match, especially Kanzaki sounds cool with dat Kansai dialect - which doesn't work for Haruto that much, especially when he says "Eba", sounds so wrong. Art wasn't as bad as i was expecting after all bad opinions though, Kanzaki looked good and Eba wasn't half bad. Haruto looks even more plain that in manga tho, and he should be blonde no matter what any of producers or even Seo think.
The worst thing in all this shit was definitely that thing that was supposed to be Akari. She was drawn so fucking bad, especially hair. And horribly unmatched seiyuu that made my ears bleed.

After all, please don't make a tv series if Akari's gonna be like that thing here. Other than that, tv series should work out better than this shitty oav, just adapt the story from the start not the middle of manga.

They should have just made a Anime for this manga.

and the art in the OVA didn't match the manga. ;_;
“I have a girl I love named Sakura. Well actually, it’s one-sided on my part. Sakura is totally in love with a guy named Sasuke. She tries so hard, chasing after him and trying to win his love. When she’s at it, her smile is the cutest thing. There’s no explaining it. Before I realized it, I was in love with her. I would never try to force her to love me. I’d be no different from that guy just now if I did. So I made up my mind. In the same way that Sakura tries so hard to win Sasuke over, I’m going to do my best to win Sakura over.”

really beautiful - at last a romantic story that feels like real life - the loves we lose from the past, the things we give up, sometimes moving on when we shouldn't, the story of real life - and sometimes ending up alone after all...can't wait for the second one! animation was truly gorgeous, especially the ending scene at the river - great symbolism for the river of our past sweeping into the future, sometimes right past each other...

Seeing this brought back a bitter taste, but it was somewhat nostalgic to see this part of the story again. I really hope that they'll turn it into a full series with animations done by Bones or Mad House :D. I really love this manga so yeah, bring a full series ^^

Oh yeah definitely, from all of KnIM chapter i really loves the times when she get her revenge.

But i think the OVA should show more about how Eba's screwed Haruto's life before she left to Tokyo.

Honoka's appearance is not too bad but i want to see Suzuka in this OVA too

Did you miss her? She distracted Fuka with a Teddy Bear when Nanami made Haruto grab her chest.
