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.

It's difficult to produce a shoujo romance that doesn't feel rushed, especially within that 12 episode time crunch. With shoujo romances I like to see a nice a steady progression between the two soon to be flowering pairings. That's that's exactly what I got with Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou - it's a shoujo that's not rushed. However it ends at the climax - and without a second season to wrap everything up, the first season is quite pointless.

The story follows a high-schooler named Kazunari Usa as he moves into a boarding house complex, illustrating the unique blossoming relationship he has with fellow roommate, Ritsu Kawai. ...

Mediocrity at best. While it could've been a promising anime, in reality its another anime that doesn't know what it really wants to show and if does something, its usually bad executed.

The story is nothing special, or why would i give it a 5? You know when there are so many ways to make an interesting plot, anime such as this only put it simple from the very first episode and theres no further developing.

The Art. Well, i don't see anything awe inspiring, moving on.

The Sound is forgettable and as mediocre as this anime in general. Can't remember a single track.

Characters. Now this ...

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 ...
