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. Gradually as you watch each episode you learn a little more about the two and their relationship, while also getting introduced to other friends.

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

Lamune is nothing less than a simple light-hearted, comedic romance. But even then it is fairly enjoyable.

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

There is a fine line between a relaxing anime, and a boring anime. I find Lamune to be the former, but it's not going to surprise me if more people find it to be the latter.

The story follows two childhood friends, Kenji and Nanami, who only realized their feelings for each other after certain events in the story and thus the two starts a new kind of relationship. Lamune is simple, cute and as straight-forward as a childhood friend romance as it can be. There is no overarching storyline - actually I think I just spoiled a third of the story by giving that read more
