Kazunari Usa is a high school freshman who will start living alone due to his parents now working in a different area. Excited for his new independent life, he hopes to go about his teenage days without the worry of dealing with any strange people, but as he soon discovers, his new boarding house Kawai Complex is far from ordinary.

The various tenants at Kawai Complex are all quite eccentric characters. Shirosaki, Kazunari's roommate, is a pervert and masochist; Mayumi Nishikino, a borderline alcoholic office lady, hates couples because of her unfortunate luck with men; and Sayaka Watanabe, a seemingly innocent college student, enjoys leading men on. Shocked with the lack of decent individuals at his new residence, Kazunari is about to leave when he runs into shy senior student Ritsu Kawai and finds himself slowly falling in love with her.

A bit slow at first but once you understand the plot you realize how underrated this anime is. This isn’t your typical romance anime. The way they go about this romance is more realistic. Now sure the side characters are out of this world but I think that’s what helps the two main characters. Plus blushing Rit-Chan is a treat for all
I think for those who enjoy’s boarding school anime I think you’ll like this. It’s more old school animation but the animation is still great. It’s not all cutesy and bubbly which is refreshing. Im definitely going to read the manga and/or light novel ...

Mixed Feelings
This show was moderately enjoyable, but also significantly frustrating. It's supposed to be a light-hearted romantic comedy, but it's really inconsistent when it comes to establishing atmosphere (often ruining it in order to make an unsatisfying joke). It's also way over the top when it comes to stuff like blushing or close-ups.

My biggest problem with this show is the cast of characters. Most of the show takes place in the dorm where the main character lives alongside a few more people. Most of these people are badly designed/executed. The protagonist himself is nothing special, but perfectly alright. Some of his character traits made him occasionally ...

First and foremost, whoever said this anime is like suzuka is dead wrong.

Theres no confession, no kiss, no hug, no plot, no drama, it doesnt take itself seriously so its pretty hard to take it seriously. All the main character gets is her phone number after 12 episodes.

The one saving grace of this show is the art style is pretty nice. Both main characters have very bland personalities, in fact the most entertainment youll get from this show is the side characters.

Not to mention theres a lot of joking about pedos for some strange reason. Seriously this show shouldnt be considered a romance. Its ...
