Finally, a romantic comedy done right. Even though I'm a guy, I have seen many romantic animes and this is probably one of the best. This is one of those feel good stories that leaves you with a smile upon your face. There is nothing new here or out of the ordinary but the ending is highly satisfying. So many animes start out strong but in the end they fizzle out. Luckily, this isn't one of them. The comedy is light without going over the top and the music is rather gentle, no pop stuff here. Give it a try, you'll love it. (You can read more

Being a romance-anime-moe-comedy-slice of life-etc. etc. genre fan, the first thing I could say on this series is, it has a unique sense of story and plot...
Unlike the other romance anime that I've watched, majority of them have the same story... I don't know if you will agree with me on this point but well others really have the same setting on the story and then you will suddenly have a hunch on what's bound to happen next which is somehow irritating, that's why some people get bored in watching... But once you start to watch this series you'll be fascinated on how every read more

I've Seen Many Romance Anime's in Life, but I'm sure by far that this one shows the most promise. I truly enjoyed each and every episode. It had it's fair share of sad moments, happy moments and even funny moments. Some out there may disagree with me, but I stand tall when saying this is the most romantic anime I have seen yet and maybe it will be the most romantic anime I ever see. So take some time and watch this Anime if your looking for a few laughs a tiny bit of action and a very Romantic story with a happy ending then read more
