Love is unusual for Risa Koizumi and Atsushi Ootani, who are both striving to find their ideal partner in high school—172 cm tall Koizumi is much taller than the average girl, and Ootani is much shorter than the average guy at 156 cm. To add to their plights, their crushes fall in love with each other, leaving Koizumi and Ootani comically flustered and heartbroken. To make matters worse, they're even labeled as a comedy duo by their homeroom teacher due to their personalities and the stark difference in their heights, and their classmates even think of their arguments as sketches.

Lovely★Complex follows Koizumi and Ootani as they encourage each other in finding love and become close friends. Apart from their ridiculous antics, they soon find out an unexpected similarity in their music and fashion tastes. Maybe they possess a chemistry yet unknown, but could love ever bloom between the mismatched pair?

A heart warming shoujo. I just loved the story. Koizumi and Otani are kind of the dynamic duo in high school. They start trying to arrange their friend for each other, but in the end Koizumi ends up in love with Otani and an arduous battle for his heart ensues. Otani has that tsudere style of being that is quite annoying at times. He's also dumb as hell and takes time to figure out Riza's feelings. The little fagot cried so much I almost walked into the show to smack Otani. But it all worked out in the end and I was super happy with ...

Lovely Complex is good! Overall it's pretty cute at times and I really like the whole short boy/tall girl dynamic, ALTHOUGHHHHH there are a lot of things that I did fuss over while watching it.

1. At times, there were too many comedic relief moments throughout the entire show and it got reaaaally annoying at some point. There could be a really serious situation going on and then suddenly some goofy ass frame of Koizumi would appear and it'd totally ruin the suspense. If you're really not into dumb comedy segments that aren't really necessary, LoveCom has SOOOOOO many of those so watch out if you ...

This is the worst piece of shit ever made and I will forever hate it to my dying grave. Imagine if someone wanted to make a parody of all the tropes and cliches of romance anime then forgot to actually make it a parody; you're left with intentional tropes that twist the knife to see just how far you can make the audience suffer through bullshit while at the same time making the female lead suffer and cry that she's stuck with this piece of shit guy whom she loves but doesn't love back because reasons as this goes on for 26 fucking episodes. And ...
