It is widely believed that science can provide rational explanations for the countless phenomena of our universe. However, there are many aspects of our existence that science has not yet found a solution to and cannot decipher with numbers. The most notorious of these is the concept of love. While it may seem impossible to apply scientific theory to such an intricate and complex emotion, a daring pair of quick-witted Saitama University scientists aim to take on the challenge.

One day the bold and beautiful Ayame Himuro outwardly declares that she is in love with Shinya Yukimura, her fellow logical and level-headed scientist. Acknowledging his own lack of experience with romance, Yukimura questions what factors constitute love in the first place and whether he is in love with Himuro or not. Both clueless in the dealings of love, the pair begin to conduct detailed experiments on one another to test the human characteristics that indicate love and discern whether they demonstrate these traits toward each other.

As Himuro and Yukimura begin their intimate analysis, can the two scientists successfully apply scientific theory, with the help of their friends, to quantify the feelings they express for one another?

So, yeah. This is just plain funny comedy show. It features a lot of science and other stupid stuff.

The Story: Himuro Ayame and Yukimura Shinya have feelings toward each other but as they are huge science nerds, they don't believe is the feelings of love since feelings are not real but science is, so they start to analyze the signs of love and other stupid stuff like that. We follow them while they conduct research on love and how to recognize the signs of love. There are a lot of actual science which is nice. Towards the end they need to present their findings on ...

Mixed Feelings
All Rom and no Com. RikeKoi couldn’t fully cement itself as a really good show for two reasons, its inadequate comedic directing and unfortunately containing the anime classic, the cringey, contrived drama towards the end to create a more...memorable finish? (Seriously though, why does every show feel the need to do this?)

Just like the number of negatives though, there are two things that do make RikeKoi a pretty acceptable experience to watch. The first is the charming cast of characters (besides the Manga-ka girl, obviously) and the other is the actual romantic progression that is decently fleshed out. RikeKoi is a show about scientists, and ...

It was poetry in motion, but they blinded each other with science.

Do you love me? Prove it through science! That’s the mind process of two scientists, who are head over heels for one another but can’t prove it. The solution? Perform various experiments until they can scientifically prove that they do in fact love each other. Because smart people don’t understand how feelings work or something.

As a comedy this premise works fine enough. But as a romance it fails miserably. Love is a feeling you have for somebody or something. Not a presentation where you have to explain your reasoning. So having them perform these ...
