The story of Lesson XX has a sweet feel to it. It revolves around two boys, Shizuka and Sakura who are friends at a coed boarding school. One day, Shizuka happens to notice Sakura’s sheer beauty when he dives in to take a hit from a baseball. After some mixed up thoughts of who Sakura likes, Shizuka tells him he wishes to kiss him as a joke. But Sakura doesn’t care; he still insists that the two kiss under the starry sky. After this incident, Shizuka thinks it’s best for the two to be away from each other, so as to sort out their thoughts and real feelings. A classic shounen ai/yaoi, incorporating love, misunderstanding, violence and somewhat angst with a sweet end to it.

This was short and sweet. I originally was just checking it was subtitled before I put it in my ‘to watch’ pile but ended up watching it all the way through.

The plot was good and really made the story realistic. It dealt with issues that someone like Shizuka would go through without overdoing it. It was short though which in this case was good as any longer and it would have drawn the story out too much. And it managed to keep you caring for the characters and wanting to find out what happens next. As well as shouting at the screen ‘kiss him dammit!’

Easily one of the cutest OVAs I’ve seen in a long time.

It can be summed up pretty simply ; two high school boys at a boarding school fall in love. The setting and characters are what really makes it stand out. It’s simple, easy to watch, and the characters have just enough depth to keep any viewer invested.

While women in these types of shows are infamously misrepresented, this isn’t the case for once. The side characters are interesting and well crafted. Most importantly, they move the plot ahead rather than plotting to destroy the romance - which is a refreshing change. There’s an endearing ...

Lesson XX is a cute 49mn long anime with a rather simple and straightforward plot.
Good points :
It's been spared from the biggest cliches you usually find in BL stories, that's pretty refreshing.

The characters are interesting, even the side ones who don't get a lot of screen time (there's only so much you can do in a 49mn anime).

The soundtrack is actually pretty good.
Bad points :
