On the surface, the thought of Kyouko Hori and Izumi Miyamura getting along would be the last thing in people's minds. After all, Hori has a perfect combination of beauty and brains, while Miyamura appears meek and distant to his fellow classmates. However, a fateful meeting between the two lays both of their hidden selves bare. Even though she is popular at school, Hori has little time to socialize with her friends due to housework. On the other hand, Miyamura lives under the noses of his peers, his body bearing secret tattoos and piercings that make him look like a gentle delinquent.

Having opposite personalities yet sharing odd similarities, the two quickly become friends and often spend time together in Hori's home. As they both emerge from their shells, they share with each other a side of themselves concealed from the outside world.

# Animation
The animation used is quite common in use in other romantic anime. using tones that combine various bright colors, as well as various additional backgrounds to support the character's feelings. the use of moving shadow effects on the characters is quite interesting. But that doesn't make the animation in this anime stand out compared to other romantic animations.
The animation on the opening song of the anime is quite interesting. the use of boxes that move with various images that are cut into pieces such as displaying various characters with their respective stories. not just focusing on the hori and miyamura couple.

I don't get how this anime ended up on anyone's favorites list. Is it the animation, art style, or voice actors? Because it definitely can't be the plot—it's nothing special. No climax, just a regular couple with a plain story about a quiet boy and loud girl. Usually, I'm so in love with those kinds of plots but this anime somehow managed to ruin it. I found myself more interested in the side characters' romantic stories, which says a lot. It feels like those who love this anime haven't watched many other romance anime before. It's more slice of life than romance—something you can casually ...
