I fell in love the second I saw the character design and attractive animation. Also, the seiyuu fit each character which made it really easy to watch. I cannot wait for the next episode!

Tanaka was quite cute but he was a bit of a diva at the end. Dropping ORE's all over the place like he was hot shizz.
The whole "reduction of feminine appeal" thing...

5-bread-a-day lyfe + cramming stuff into bag + ??? = UNSEXY NOO!

I don't understand how the mind of the male works.
I always think of Yuki Kaji as the pathetic pervert teenager type. I mean, I like him a lot, but he usually takes characters with uber massive uke qualities. Eren, Alibaba, Shu, Youto, Finnian, Yukine... etc. It's sort of odd for me to hear him as Tanaka dropping ore's all over the place ha XD

That was a cute and sweet start, It's been awhile since I last watched a shoujo anime.

Never ever thought I'd begin this series, but one of my friends urged me to, and I'm glad I did. I really like this whole idea and how the love between Tanaka/Mabuchi and Futaba isn't all set early on and things don't always go smoothly, it makes it more realistic and deviates from the cliche, uneventful shoujo stuff.

Can't wait for the next episode; may even just read the whole manga through because I want to continue the story without waiting a week ;__;

Woah straight to the point with the first episode, definitely a like. Already a rollercoster of emotions with being happy they reunited but sad that they're not longer what they were in the past. :(

So far, so good. I only fear that the anime will be massively incomplete, since there is no way they will cover the whole story in 12 episodes. (Then again, I didn't think they would do that with Brynhildr in the Darkness either, and they covered over 100 chapters there... badly, but they covered them..._

THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Just a reminder that manga readers shouldn't spoil this for those of us who are anime only (thus far). Please spoiler any important plot points (or better yet don't mention them at all) that haven't been introduced in the anime yet, and don't go into any details about characters who haven't been introduced. We want to have some of the same joy of discovery that you manga readers have had with this show.
Please don't feed the trolls!

I didn't expect to like the anime this much so far. It's so cute and I love the two main characters already. Ah such a good beginning. I'm going to start reading the manga like right now. ^3^ Can't wait for the next episode!

I'm impressed... that was actually really good.

Love -> parting -> change -> reunion... all in one episode! It makes me doubt they can keep the pace.

I see where this is going... time to just be yourself again and get some new/real friends.

I wasn't sure what to expect, but I'm surprisingly pleased with this. Definitely looking forward to seeing what happened to make him believe that there's no chance for them now even though they both have feelings for each other.

Also that lunch lady ugh. I'm not a very confrontational person, but I don't think I would've been able to take such a situation standing down.

Am I the only one who went out of this first episode with the impression that the male MC was kind of a douche? Other than that, good episode.

He does act like one, but there are reasons behind his attitude.

Pretty good start for a romance shoujo. The art is nice, I like the subtle coloring. Kinda reminds me of bokura ga ita.

yeah, I don't like the eyes style, too.


Hmm I don't directly mind huge eyes, but here they just don't seem to fit the general art style. I'd expected to be un realistically large of course, but not half the face.

This is nice.

That another guy's fault for her to say she hates all guys. She became such a tomboy for a reason when in highschool. And that difference in his voices! Both of them changed, and he tries to act indifference to her.

ED is so nice.

The big round eyes is a typical shoujo art. I dont really see a problem with that.

That was a cute show. The whole set-up was very familiar, but it was still a fun watch. I don't know if I'll be immediately picking this up for the Summer season, but for one episode I was quite happy.

interesting start. hoping it doesn't go too smooth. needs dramas. seems really shoujo. the guy could be cool though. kinda funny she made herself unattractive on purpose but never noticed him this whole time. I'm glad it wasn't the cliche event where he transferred to her class.

Wow, her two friends are just so hidoi..!! Another typical shoujo I guess. Haven't read the manga yet but I hope there will be some nice development.
Keep on moving forward

I really love the manga but for some reason.....this was so boring to watch lol. And since I already know the upcoming drama to come for Futuba, I'm like dreading to watch the anime.....

But MAN KOU'S VOICE IS 10/10 HOT.

Crap, watching this reminds me of when I was in primary school. Thought, I loved that person but probably didn't. I've read the manga and it was cute so I'll watch the anime as well. :D

This anime could be quite interesting!
It reminded me a líttle bit of Kimi ni Todoke... though I like the fact that these guys are not as shy as they were in Kimi ni Todoke.
Hm-Hm. This might be a really good anime.

While I am a manga reader, I found the first episode kind of boring; I have a better time reading it. And knowing the manga's plot twists later, I am not looking forward that much but depends where it will finish. Although I like that animation/atmosphere.

Also, not really fond of Futaba's voice actress.

I haven't read the manga, but this first episode leads me to the impression that this is a SOL shoujo. It wasn't bad in this direction really, I'm looking forward to it


Mabuchi is really giving Futaba what she deserves imo.

Oof! Was worried about Kaji Yuki as Kou, cause I could only imagine his voice from Hentai Ouji and Brothers Conflict. But he's doing very well. In fact he seems to fit better than Futaba's voice actor.

I can smell a lot of drama coming in. It seems really cheesy and all but I guess I'm still going to follow it, that's how cheap I am.
