Hibino Tsubaki is a shy, kind, and slightly old-fashioned girl who has always been the top student in her class. She always did everything her parents wanted her to do. She loved to do other girls' hair in trendy and cute styles, despite always wearing plain braids herself.

On her first day of high school at the opening ceremony, she is astonished to see that the top student giving the opening speech is not only somebody else, but also the rudest boy she has ever seen. This delinquent turns out to be her new classmate, Kyouta Tsubaki. Kyouta teases Hibino, drawing attention to their similar last names. The two are both top of their class, but are different in every other way. Even though it seems that they cannot stand each other, fate has something else in store for them…

OK, I have been a fan of this manga for a long time, even so much so that I had help in the translation of the manga when it first came out, so I was excited to see the OVA. I remember when I first watched Honey x Honey Drops as an OVA (before reading the manga) and it was just smut, but after reading the manga I realized that's how it played out at first lol.
Anyway, when I watched the first episode I was not happy that the first couple of minutes kind of just badly summarizes the first part of the manga. It ...

Mixed Feelings
This is my first review.

Please note, i have not read the manga, so i shall be writing my review based on the anime i have seen.

I have never been more frustrated at an anime in such a away- this had so much potential to become something more, yet it lacked that extra bit more.

One of its major flaws was rushing into the 'major climax' of the story between the 2 main characters, Tsubaki & Kyouta. With no explanation or plot development, BANG, it's almost like the ending started before the beginning. To be fair there was a short narrative beginning, but it would have been ...

Preliminary (1/2 eps)
This was.. hilariously ridiculous! One of my favorite manga(s) was so purely made into an anime that I couldn't stop laughing. Honestly what the heck was that? It had just some cut scenes. someone who hadn't read the manga wouldn't understand a thing. The animation was poor as well. Honestly even the voices of the characters annoyed me. I don't know, maybe I had it animated in my head in another way?
