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…

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 ...

Mixed Feelings
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 ...

Preliminary (Unknown/2 eps)
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 ...
