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 felt like Towa was more engaged throughout the story than Haruki, they basically gave him 2 episodes ( Those being the last ones) to be himself, but that is not enough time, the ending was completely loose for me.

Chasing after someone ...

Not going to lie... I only watched this anime because I got a keychain of it from an anime loot box(It was filled with random animes). Owning merch of the show, I wanted to give it a shot. Now, let's get into the anime basics.

Story; I don't know who did the Synopsis on MAL, but this anime is about 12 students, each supposed to fall in love with their person. But the main focus is on Towa Honda(the typical popular boy who annoys the girl he likes until she can't help but love him back) and Haruki Mishima(fallen in love with his childhood friend, but ...

I've never write a review for an anime, but I feel I need to at least do something with the time I invested watching this one.

Being honest, I watched it because of a clip I found on YouTube of a fanny moment and I thought "oh it seems good"... But it wasn't.

Let me start. Since the beginning I felt the story was a bit off. I felt the expressions of the characters were not complete, they didn't match with what was happening or what they were saying. I know some animes like to keep the viewer thinking and making you infer what the characters ...
