I see a lot of people raging about this series on the forums and the review section, so I'm here to give you my two cents.

Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu is a difficult OVA to recommend. For newcomers who have never read the manga will find the first episode (and probably the rest of the OVA) to be confusing. Why, you ask? Because the first episode starts at the first major climax of the manga. Which I believe in the manga starts at chapter 15, so all anime viewers would be missing 14 chapters of background content of the first episode. If you do want to read more

Well, I just watched the first OVA and I gotta say I was never so disappointed in an animation before ! Seriously what was that O___o ?
The OVA started and the first 2 minutes they skip like 10 chapters with important plot and then put the scene with the star projector ... urgh
Very disappointing to me =3=
The VA weren't that great to me either ... Hibino has the same as Amu from SC so I couldn't take her serious because she reminded me of a 12 year old girl, sorry

The only thing I liked about it was the chara design. It was very similiar read more

Usually I don't write reviews after the first episode, but this is an OVA, and its review was needed.
I began reading the manga awhile ago. A friend had recommended it, so I was trying to push my way through it, even though I thought it was cliche' and boring. When I heard the manga was being adapted, I put aside the manga and said I'd watch the anime. I'm really sorry that I bothered.

Story- 6. I couldn't even tell what the story was at first. It started with a boy on stage, skipped to the main girl cutting his hair, then skipped to her read more

Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu is a very short romantic story about two young high school students sharing the same name. After a terrible first meeting, the girl fell in love with the guy sometime later but was rejected by him. What follows is a story on how the two eventually becomes closer to each other. The story is quite simple and cliche, but being a short 2 episode long, the OVA manage to flesh out enough story details to make the story convincing and watchable at least.

The main highlights of these OVA are the still animation scenes which are rather breathtaking, artistic and read more

This is my first review, so, I apologize.

This is the first time I've really felt so disappointed in an anime I've had no background in. I usually give *everything* a chance but this.. It's just.. I'll let my review explain to you all my feelings towards this OVA.

I found the art lovely. The usual Shoujo, but I loved it non-the less. The animation as well was nice. I love that kind of animation style instead of the newer style they have been releasing with the newer animes. But, this was probably the high-point of the anime. 8/10

The Actor's that were choose for this anime read more

I felt to write a review due to the low rating reviews Kyou, Koi wo Hajimemasu has. Yes i would have loved to see more moving art work but atleast time was taken into consideration with each frame. Whereas the storyline was done so well in just two episodes. Actually engaging the viewer every developing step of their 'mutual relationship'. Very sweetly done :) - BEAUTIFUL

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 read more

First of all I'd like to mention that I've read the manga. Second the manga is ongoing and also 65 chapters long (so far) so how in the WORLD can it be a 2 episode (each an hour long) anime. It didn't let the characters build up. If I hadn't read the manga first then I would have had no idea what was going on. It missed loads of key parts and didn't do the manga justice.
Second of all the voices were all wrong for me.... :L
Also (I'm only on episode 1) they completely lost the idea of her fixing hair and Sakura, her read more

I agree also to what ppl been saying i believe that the anime really pushed too much ahead n put fragmentation scenes together to create the first ova. I loved the manga it was very interesting n enjoyable; however, the anime to was not as gud...but i did like seeing the characters in action....so overall it was very good but they should hav added more detail within it to make it more like the manga is.

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?

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 read more

This OVA is definitely not for anyone who hasn't read the manga. It was very confusing for me (who has read the manga) in the beginning, trying to recollect everything that had prefaced the starting point of the OVA.

Story (4/10): This OVA bounced around a bit, skipping over so much of the essence of the manga. Even stand-alone, the viewer would be confused and left and 20 questions of who, what, when, where and why. It was very focused on the dramatic element and that alone. They did try to have some flash backs so you got the idea of what lead up to read more

I would not recommend anyone who has not read the manga to watch the anime. It skipped a lot from the manga and as a reason, it was all over the place. I felt like the anime was moving at a pace I could not follow even though I have read the manga. They tried to give it a Kimi ni Todoke type of feeling where for example, if Kyouta and Tsubaki were smiling, it'd be just paper art rather movement. This I liked. Overall, it was sweet to watch but it could have been much better if they moved at a slower pace.

A hardcore fan of the manga will probably be disappointed. It's has the “overflowing cattle with boiling water” effect that Hollywood so called blockbusters have, when the director tries to squish a 700 page literary bestseller into an average movie format. So, If you haven't read at least some chapters of the manga, than these => ????
