Lamune is a Slice of Life, Romance, Comedy, Drama about a boy (Kenji) and girl (Nanami) who grew up together and lately have begun to have feelings for each other, but don’t admit to them. Nothing new about this childhood friend romantic set-up; but unlike similar anime that prefer to bombard us with drama, angst and romance, Lamune is more of a calm, relaxed series to go with the rural setting. Each episode tends to begin with a flashback, of some event in their childhood and then proceeds to relate it in some way to the story's present events. Yet with this being a read more

Story: Well the story is pretty normal. It's the perfect example of what real life in the country side is like. The series starts out pretty slow, basically explaining who the two main characters are, why they're so close, and how they first met.

It's a simple story about two kids that read more

Lamune adopts a storyline we’ve seen too many times in anime- the ‘childhood friend romance’. Even so, it is one of the best to take advantage of this. It’s comedy revolves around the two main characters and some read more

I usually don't write reviews but this one is an exception, (well atleast for now). I saw the whole series on a free sunday so that might influence my opinion a bit.

Well the story takes a while before it gets interesting. In the first part you get to know the character pretty well, they refer to the past between the two leads which shows the true friendship between them. That true friendsip also gets in the way with a romatic relationship. Their relationship grows bigger and bigger without them noticing it in the first place, or maby its denial, I still haven't figured out read more
