"A lot of stories about first love are about to begin."

Also, a lot of love triangles are about unfold. Hatsukoi (First Love) Limited. is basically a group of short stories about middle- and high-schoolers dealing with their first love that are somehow connected. The problem is, any of those couples could have their own show, and one or two episodes about them are just not enough. Still, the anime does turn out all right, with humour, sexiness, and drama included; not to mention romance, of course. Like I said in the forum, episode 9 is far and away my favorite, as it is the most read more

for some people like me whose so picky in watching anime... when i first watched the episode 1 i find the anime boring but as i watch the anime until episode 6 the story's getting more and more interesting because first i was really captivated by the idea of the creator of this manga... you'll really wonder who's love will survive and in every episode it revolves each and every characters of the anime... slowly every character show their personal and emotional qualities and therefore we tend to know them in just 1 episode... and also most of the story in this anime happen in read more

A guilty pleasure of mine is shoujo anime/mangas. While this one doesn't really fall into that category, it still tickles my romantic bone without making me want to throw up from the mushiness. =P

Funny. Adorable. Sweet. Hilarious. Insane. Ridiculous. Unmissable.

If you have even an ounce of romance in you, you'll like this.

The cast of characters here are unique in some ways and cliche in others. Regardless, you can't help but fall in love with all of them.

One outstanding element I noticed was that it is highly successful in giving us damn ugly young men and have their personalities shine through so wonderfully, we can't help read more

* Spoilers Ahead *

Hatsukoi Limited is best described a collection of short stories revolving numerous characters each with their own unique story.
It's very hard to right a review with so many stories that are connected to only anime season, so i will break this down by character (Key).

Plot - Follows a group of 5 girls who seek a relationship or their first love, each episodes focuses on a different girl (First episode is Arihara Ayumi's)

Characters (Plus my opinion on them)

Arihara Ayumi
- A bubbly character who is asked out by Misao Zaitzu (Monster). Though she claimed she would accept any offer, she is consistently read more

"Are you in love right now?"

Well with this anime..it's more divisive than "in love" actually...

Hatsukoi Limited follows several unrequited relationships and each of the earlier episodes focuses on one set of relationships while developing the ones from the previous episode in tandem, which makes one elaborate love dodecahedron.

Well since this is a relationship-based romance naime, LA needs to start off with the characters themselves and their relationships. Let's start with Ayumi Arihara voiced by Mariya Ise, one of the genki ditz of her girl group who has a crush on Mamoru Zaitsu voiced by Miyu Irino but his older brother Misao voiced by Kenji Nomura read more

"Geez, women are so hard to understand”

Hello dear readers, this is my first review so I hope you enjoy.

I watched this anime a week or so ago, and it was more or less what I expected when I read the synopsis, it is an anime about a group of girls and there quests for love, and I have to say that this anime does push the question of Can guys ever understand girls? I think it is a brilliant take on love life, and read more
