A Kiss Note is a powerful notebook that makes anyone who has their name written together will instantly fall in love if they kiss each other regardless of any circumstances. This magical and very familiar item belongs to an angel named Guri whose job as cupid is to create couples. However, she accidentally writes down Aino Seiji, a regular high school student, and unless he kisses someone, Guri will die. She convinces Seiji to go kiss his crush, Hiyama Akane, the school's popular girl who turns out has even stronger feelings for him, bordering on obsessive and psychotic. Eventually Akane and Seiji come together but not before Guri decides that she likes Seiji as well. What seems awesome to most guys becomes hell for Seiji who just wants a normal relationship with girls.

**You will not find any spoilers in my review**

I felt the need to express my initial feelings toward the series:

Renai Boukun parodies of Death Note. Given that it's a parody, expect some over-the-top humor displayed through unrealistic situations. It doesn't, by any means, take itself serious: This casual anime is simply one that contains some light-hearted humor. In addition, it contains yuri, yaoi fandom, and the yandere archetype, in case you're a fan of one of those three. (It has more yandere--and a super obvious form of it--than the other two.)

I would have to say the production (story, art, sound, etc.) is pretty standard for read more

Don't you love it when a show gets dumb downed because of a possibly incompetent director and an impossible schedule? This anime in its entirety is the result of such a mess. Now by no means am I saying this show is not something a person cannot enjoy, if you could put up with this horrid pacing and put up with a plot that moves so fast there might as well be none, then you might get some laughs here and there and simply enjoy the show as it is. However, I was unable to put up with that and thus read more

"A Kiss Note is a powerful notebook that makes anyone who has their name written together will instantly fall in love if they kiss each other regardless of any circumstances."

This anime is like a mix of Death Note and Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches and a little bit of The World only God knows.

This has got to be one of the funniest way to represent love. But on a more serious note, this anime shows all kind of love, whether it's forced, or it's with the same gender. Also, episode 2 showed some serious thing about being in love. It's great.

Well this is gonna be read more

I am loving it so far, especially after the fourth episode, where it takes an amazing turn. When I first started watching it I thought, hey, a normal romantic comedy, quite enjoyable. But after the fourth episode, I fell completely into it. . I really hope this new girl is common in the anime, because she made it fantastic.


The art is pretty great too. Though sometimes it tends to get loose, the dialogue makes up for it.

Okay, so first we have the yandere, Akane. Honestly, quite a shocker but I was glad she did turn out to be one, added some spice into read more
