Hiyoki is a cute OVA and it is unfortunate they made just one but this is a great way to introduce everyone to get them hooked. The sweet and shy Hiyori and her opposite Yuushin is the cool and popular guy of the class and just to display the further contrast is their heights.

I have been unable to fully read the manga presently but the OVA does do justice on the opening chapter(s). There isn't too much difference making it an easy transition for those who are curious how the series goes.

Essentially watching this was a nice breath of fresh air and makes me want ...

I rated this a 9 as people could probably see on my anime list but oh well, 8 is pretty good. This is just a short review.

I saw a screenshot of Hiyokoi on tumblr and it really caught my eye because the characters are so cute! Although it's just an OVA, it filled me up because it has so much plot and character development. I thoroughly enjoyed it because it was so light and cute and filled with emotion. It's also pretty funny. I recommend this anime to anyone who's looking for a short, light, comedic romance! ^_^

Mixed Feelings

A fairly generic, 'delinquent type boy meets timid, shy girl', storyline. Not much content, but then, it was a single 20 minute OVA. [6/10]


Art was in a shojo sort of style, large eyes and very cute animation. [7/10]
