In a rainy spring day, first year high schooler Midori Saezima saw a tall, handsome fellow student took care of a stray kitten. Without knowing the boy's name, she fell in love with him at the first sight.

After a series of embarrassing accidents, both she and the mysterious boy she had a crush on, Akira Sudo, were elected as members of the student council.

I remember loving the manga, which, as everything written by Ai Yazawa, shows lively characters with real, deep emotions and issues.
The problem with this OVA is obvious even before watching it: it's a 30-minute video out of an 8-volume series. It doesn't expect to represent the entire plot, but even the slice taken in consideration by the OVA is really shrunk, and everything happens so fast that there's no time for the characters to develop their feelings or to show their complex personalities, which is a big part of what makes Yazawa's stories wonderful, nor it's possible for the viewer to really get attached to read more
