Twins Megumu Kobayashi and Mitsuru Kobayashi attend different schools, one for girls and one for boys. One day, bored with being surrounded by others of their own gender, they decide to swap places with one another. While the deception seems to go unnoticed for some time, things get a bit more complicated when the possibility of romance arises.

Kobayashi ga Kawai sugite Tsurai!! begins when a heartfelt confession from Megumu leads to sharing a kiss with the upperclassman Aoi Sanada while disguised as her brother. This leaves Aoi, who was never good with girls to begin with, questioning if he likes guys instead. Likewise, Mitsuru finds the haughty queen of the school, Azusa Tokugawa, in a vulnerable position that leaves her heart racing while in his (her) arms. The two couples are lovey-dovey, but the secret of the twins' switched identities has not been revealed yet...


Kobayashi ga Kawai Sugite Tsurai!! was bundled with the limited edition of third and sixth volume of Kobayashi ga Kawai Sugite Tsurai!! shoujo manga.

IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE SERIES: I don't recommend watching these two episodes. There's a lot of missing KEY details that these weren't able to cover given that this is merely a "trailer" to promote the manga.

IF YOU HAVE READ THE SERIES: This is great to see both Megumu's and Mitsuru's identities be revealed.

Story: 4/10

The story itself is amazing but these two episodes did not do it justice!

Preliminary (1/2 eps)
I wanted to write an review since there were no other reviews. Hope you like it. There are no spoilers in this review so feel free to read it.

First of all i need to tell you a misunderstanding about this anime. My Anime List says it has 2 episodes and it finished airing. However i could find only one episode. In some sites it says the 2nd one hasn't release yet. The others say this anime only has 1 episode like an ova. So my review will be over the only one episode i found.

Mixed Feelings
This is an anime with one of the worst plot I've ever seen. It seems to be these network videos, like "One Piece in 6 min". Plot and development of characters completely poorly developed. The only good moment of this anime, is in the second episode.

I do not care if the anime is made to promote manga. This anime is just a badly made compilation, the manga is probably much more interesting, well developed and fun to read. But the anime is just awful. I do not recommend.

Total score: 5/10.
