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 towards 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 read more

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 read more

Now that the series has ended, it's time to rate it. I'm just going to use the standard Story, Art, Sound, Character, Enjoyment format.

Story - 8
So first off, is to consider the genre of anime. I feel that this two main genre's are romance and comedy. The beginning of the anime explain the background well, so nothing is confusing. So for romance, I look at how the plot of this compares to others. So, the confession is right off the bat, compared to anime that spend 12 episodes of one trying to confess to the other. The plot involves these read more

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

Can everything be explained through science? Even love?
Two scientists who are in love with one another but lacks proof of it decides to tackle this question head on through various experiments. On the surface it sounds like a good premise. However, it worked to the show's disadvantage and ended up making it rather boring.

Love is something you feel and not something that has to be scientifically explained for you to realize. So having them perform these experiments are pointless and only prevents any romantic development. It's the same problem that most anime read more
