My scoring of this show might seem weird at first but you should be able to see why soon. this super short story is adorable in its presentation however it is so very realistic in its storytelling. The story involves a class of 12 year olds and they react and do things you would expect from 12 year olds. the main point i liked about this anime was that the relationship was one of the most realistic i have seen. as they don't understand the real meaning behind a kiss there is no faffing about with the development. as kids normally do they say they read more

With a 14 minute run time there isn't much to go off of, but it is still a significant amount of time to do something right. Hard to review something that's 14 minutes without any spoilers, but trust me it won't really matter either way.

Story: 2

Boy meets girl, other boys are asses. Her classmate also likes said boy and is trying to manipulate the two of them apart when they were assigned a lesson together. Cliched as hell. The merit this story had was lost on the fact that these are 12 year olds doing stupid shit in front of their teacher, and the teacher read more

The first few minutes of this short may give the impression that this is another cheesy romance story aimed at the tween-age audience. The main character is excited about being “grown-up”, and yet we adults know those in the tween-age years really aren't as grown-up as they think. Something to keep in mind is that in the mind of many kids in their tween-years they are “grown-up” – meaning they're no longer little kids, but not yet adults either. This time period is a complicated time period of discovery for this age group.

That is one of the charms of this particular short – it manages read more

This is going to be a rather short review, due to this anime only being a 14 minute short of one episode, so there's not much to discuss. Weather you like it or not, I do think it's worth watching and actually completing as long as you have 14 minutes of your time to kill. Anyways, onto the review.

Due to how short this was, there's not much story to speak of. It's pretty much just a simple young love story, (like most anime romances usually tend to be anyways), about a middle school girl who falls in love with a read more
