The diligent high school freshman Akira Kagiura and his senior Taiga Hirano have been roommates for half a year. Kagiura used to be anxious about his future dormitory life, but thanks to his energetic senior looking out for him, he has come to feel content and at ease. As he continues to rely on Hirano more and more each day, he develops strong feelings for his selfless friend. In the six months they have left as roommates, Kagiura is determined to put a name to the relationship he cherishes so dearly before it comes to an end.

I've been a big fan of Sasaki and Miyano since pretty much the early chapters so when the Hirano and Kagiura manga was launched I was there. I was under the impression this anime was going to be a full movie rather than a few minutes of snippets between the two boys however I do think it is something worth watching.

Hirano is a character well known to us through the Sasaki and Miyano anime, since he isn't just Sasaki's close friend but also a loving upperclassman to Miyano. There are a few mentions of Kagiura in the SasaMiya anime, althought we don't actually see him ...

My recommendation for fans of the manga is to not go into this short with high expectations and view it for what it is. As well, to those that have ...

I've never seen anything like it before. It was very original. The art design fit the theme. Since the characters had inner voices, they really had deep personalities.

If you want to watch this eight-minute art of love, I definitely recommend you to watch it. I envied the characters.

Aynusundan daha önce hiç görmemiştum. çok oricinaldu. sanat tasarumu temaya uygundi. karakterlerun iç sesu oldiğından gerçekten derunlukli kişilukleri vardi. Ancak karakterlerun ikisu de lahanaydi birburlerune sevdaluk olduklarini nasil anlamadular hiç anlayamadum. Bu sekiz ...
