My favourite is Ikuya! I'm surprised; he gradually grew on me... He's such a tsundere and it makes me chuckle when he blushes or simply doesn't like to admit something. :P

I really, really admire his honesty when he cried on the bridge... It was just so lovely to see him open up, and then swim without feeling that he has to 'chase' after anyone. (LOL, Ikuya even turned down Asahi's t-shirt offer.)

He's such a cute kid, I'm curious to know how he grew up. ^^

Fave character is Asahi. His reactions are funny. His face is cute when he was eating at Haru's house. He is definitely noisy and overacting, but for this anime, he and Kisumi made a good comical duo.


My other thoughts on other characters.

I think Kisumi is a sociable person but not very influential. He is not nice nor evil. But he has talent for talking. Eg. He knows how to push Asahi's button, but he also knows how to agree, reason out and comfort Asahi.

Ikuya and Natsuya are good looking and have very beautiful appearance but their personalities are not entertaining.

Nao is Makoto's twin? Lol.

That's all for now. I'll add more comments when I discover new thoughts.

I completely agree! Asahi brought a lot of energy in his group of friends, so I'm happy. :) LOL, when you mentioned Kisumi and Asahi making a good comical duo...I remember when Kisumi gestured for Asahi to sit on his lap! xD

I see what you mean. I think Kisumi has a very patient side to him too. :) Even though he encouraged everyone to join the basketball team, he definitely wasn't forceful about it either. He's a good listener. It's nice that he didn't show obvious signs of being left out, being the only one in the basketball club during their lunch breaks. But I can't quite place my finger on whether he's nice or not... I will assume he is nice, though. He's definitely got a talent for talking, like you mentioned.

I can see him working for a broadcasting company, maybe a radio dj. At first I didn't think he needed to be in High Speed movie, but his presence makes the movie very light and lively. And I agree he is a good listener showing interest in others.

Makoto and Haru are good listeners too, not to mention extremely perceptive, but doesn't like to take interest in others much.

Kisumi working as a radio DJ would be awesome!!! He'd be the best morning person to listen to. <33 Yes, Kisumi can definitely lighten up the atmosphere, and even have us laugh. ^^

I think Haru doesn't have a direct way of showing he's paying attention like Kisumi - Kisumi can smile and ask what's up, while Haru pays attention without saying much. :) Makoto, on the other hand...it also depends how the other person is feeling, for him to be vocal about his observations.

Hard to say the four main characters were shit.

One is the "I don't care about nuttin!" emo boy who never smiles.

One is the "awww he's so nice" brown haired boy who keeps closing his eyes, smiles and tilts his head which nobody fucking does because you'd look like an idiot.

One was a cry baby parrot who just copied the emo boy.

And the other was that cliché over excitable guy.

So probably the best character was the cry babies brother because he was at least just a normal guy.
