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.

I haven't seen such lame main characters in my whole life.
The anime would have been a little better if the main story was about their friends , the class president and that cute playboy.
The main character-the boy wasn't even attractive or at least cool. He didn't have anything to stand out or to be interesting in any way.
The same goes with the girl.
I thought it would have been a good rom com but this was beyond boring.
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 ...

i have never written a review for an anime before. but this one was so lacking in everything that i feel the need to write one to save someone else time from watching this
the title and summary are misleading. the main protag isn't even the focus of the plot most of the time and there's not even '6 mains characters' that it focuses on. everything was open ended and i found myself struggling to want to finish it. every episode left me so bored and uninterested. i wish this actually SHOWED romance rather than TELLING me. there was also a pointless incest couple that showed ...
