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.

Romance, school life and a Konbini

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.

There is nothing special about this series. It starts off the same as almost every other series in this category, but quickly looses momentum and stands still where no development is really happening. It slowly picks up pace towards the end and the out come is what was expected.
It does a poor job at explaining backstory and wrapping the ending up. In the end you are left wondering about 100 questions which makes it feel only half complete, as it only addresses the main questions.
I enjoyed the simple artwork, although wasn't anything worth mentioning, a fairly neutral pallet which is easy on the eyes with read more
