The lives of high school freshmen Haruki Mishima and Towa Honda revolve around studying, clubs, and girls. Amid their hectic routines, romance is certainly budding for the two best friends. Since childhood, Haruki has been pining over Miharu Mashiki, and a chance encounter at the convenience store reignites his feelings. As for Towa, the class representative Mami Mihashi has caught his eye; but unfortunately for him, his affections are not reciprocated.

While Haruki's more reserved approach to pursuing Miharu contrasts Towa's persistence with Mami, love seems to be elusive for both. As the months fly by, only time will tell if romance is in the cards for the duo.

The scenery and soundtracks made it even more boring and it was hard to keep watching till the end of each episode.
The last 2 episodes had some ...

Romance, school life and a Konbini

The premise of Konbini Kareshi is a relatively common one often seen in this genre. Konbini Kareshi is a slice of life and romance anime set in modern day Japan in a fictional town that looks like a normal town which makes it relatable to many. Using the Konbini as a focal point the anime uses this as a place where people can meet up, bond, strike up friendships ...

Based off the adaptation of a drama series, I've expected this to last a bit longer than the 1-cours that it usually has because of its character developments and whatnot. But the conversion from the screen towards anime is a lot more wayward, with 2 of the 6 main couples getting their screen time, and honestly it feels very wasted, in terms of production and time.

If you have watched high school romance melodrama before, this should be a no-brainer. Everything sounds like it should be: Have a setting (in this case, a convenience store), and let the drama play before your eyes.
The presentation of the ...
