Ayumi Arihara believes that being loved is the ultimate key to happiness—which is why her greatest wish is to have a boy confess to her. A series of unfortunate events leads to her ideal dream coming true, albeit in a nightmarish way: the towering and terrifying Misao Zaitsu confesses his love to Ayumi through a letter.

Mentally exhausted from not knowing what to do, Ayumi collapses in class. A classmate comes to her rescue, carrying her princess-style to the infirmary. This makes Ayumi fall in love with the cute boy, only to realize he is none other than Misao's younger brother, Mamoru.

Feeling caught between a rock and a hard place, Ayumi must decide whether to stick to her idea of love or pursue what she truly desires. However, Ayumi is not alone in her struggles—all her friends are also taking on the challenges of first love, and for teenagers, it is never as easy as it seems.

Hatsukoi Limited is a show wherein in they displayed the love life of different characters that are related to one another. there's no real focus but the story revolved around the group of girls and their siblings and colleagues.

I would say that this anime is on point, looking back at my past journeys, there were a couple to several times i have experienced such heart beating/aching events. I cant ...

Mixed Feelings
Has very strong first 2 episodes, but goes downhill afterwards.

It starts by introducing the relationship mentioned in the synopsis, which threatens to equally likely fall into either the "Gentle Giant + Loli" trope you may have seen in other shows if you are a romcom fan or some stalker horror story. It quickly grows into a triangle in the very first episode, and there is sort of a resolution at least about the fear aspect that's simultaneously a bit cliched and with an interesting twist at the end.

In the second episode another relationship is tacked on to the chain and I'm almost sad that the ...

I mean if there was one thing I learnt from myanimelist is to prepare yourself to see what the worst comments said. And frankly I have to agree with most that was said, a lot of these parings were bad or ridiculous, even when going in with the low expectations. And I'll start by explaining all the love parings this show has. Though I might end up spoiling who gets together I won't actually spoil too much of the show so you can enjoy it yourselves if you want to. Overall I find this show bad but there were some parts to it that made ...
