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...
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.
(Obs... I do not know how to speak English, I'm using the translator. I'm sorry for
the grammar mistakes. ^^)
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.
The story itself is amazing but these two episodes did not do it justice!
Go Ikeyamada has a beautiful style, which I'm happy to see wasn't lost in the anime.
Pretty generic soundtrack, sadly
Like I mentioned earlier in my rating for the art, Go Ikeyamada's characters are always drawn
beautifully &have amusing chibi reactions that never seem to grow oid
Given that I've read half the series already, I did thoroughly enjoy the first episode. The second wasn't as great, but it did show the siblings relationship and Mitsuru a little better than the previous.
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.
First of all, you must know that the anime
is made to "advertise the manga". So don't expect a "really detailed" story. It's more like an introduction or a trailer. If you plan to watch this anime, after watching it you must read the manga for the REAL story.
The episode introduces you the characters and the relationships. The twists are revealed at the end of the episode and it makes you want to learn more of the story. I can't give you any detailed information about the characters. Because if i start talking about them, i will surely spoil you. You must watch the episode and learn the details by yourself.
Really, i really like the character desings. The eyes looks so great. The graphics are detailed and the animation totally fine.
Songs are great, however they are so forgettable. That's why i voted this section badly.
Characters are interesting. You will really like it. There are 4 characters in total and all of there has different personalities which makes the anime enjoyable. Like i said, i can't give you any further information because the anime is based on the characters secrets.
I enjoyed the anime. I am planning to read the manga because i really got into the story. It seems really enjoyable. I suggest you to watch and then read the manga. ^^
Just a hint. This anime isn't a Yuri or Yaoi anime. Just keep this in your mind while watching the anime. You will get what i mean when you watch the episode yourself. Like i said everything will be revealed at the end of the episode. I am not a fan of yuri or yaoi and i really had fun watching it.
