I love it!
If Okayasu died, this anime would be the saddest story :)

I didnt like the overall anime because of Momo's indecisiveness, but Okayasu and his happy ending made it totally worthwhile. I love Okayasu, he was the only good thing about this story, and this ending really appealed to me.

I love how when they kiss they're both in tears n_n.

i kind of felt that the ending was sort of rushed, though... I never liked Touji, but I still wonder what happened to him.

It was a good anime. Not one of my favorites, but still good! ^^; Both Kairi and Toji are decent guys, but I still prefer Kairi. He's one thing that kept me watching the show. Anyway, it was a sweet ending.

Kairi did lose some points because of his obsession with Misao. that almost ruined the anime for me. But in the end, I'm sooooooooo happy that he "won" because I can't bear to see him be sad D:

This anime was very good. It's been a while since I've found something so enchanting as to hypnotize me into watching a 25 episode show so quickly.

I felt the same about this. They could have spent a little less time on the back and forth stuff between Kairi and Touji, and even though Momo did choose Kairi, a little more info about Touji in the latter would have been nice.

The final scenes, (after Kairi is saved), seemed a bit rushed as well. It was sweet, but I think they could have done more.

Although, I think Momo made the right decision to choose Kairi in the end. Touji did give me the feeling that he would be a pretty decent guy, and treat Momo well, but he just didn't go through with half of what Kairi did for her.

8/10 - very good.

I liked the ending, although it was kinda predictable it was cute that they were finally together on the beach where it all started.

Happy she ended with Okayasu, he was the only reason to keep watching this series, and i've crazily disliked Touji since he dropped that perfume bottle in front of her.
It was kind of cool to see the guys desperation to have her come through, i think thats one thing this series did really well that alot of others don't,, with Okayasu shaking in the bathroom and screaming and dragging her off a couple of times, and Touji pinning her down when she tried to leave.

I was actually quite happy with the speed at the end: The two of them were so happy and obviously Touji won't be, I'm not really interested in seeing his depression :P It would have been interesting to see how people back at school take the news though, as once again she'd arranged a trip with one guy and would be returning with another..

Overall 6/10 I think, a significant increase from the low 4 set before this final arc of the story.
However, if the only mark I took into account was the one I felt at the end, then it probably would have been a 7-8/10. Remembering how little i enjoyed the beginning and middle though, it can't really get much higher than a 6 overall.

I apologise for any mistakes and warped opinions in here though, i'm tired and writing this three-fingered lying down in bed.

Despite being a bit frustrating in parts.. I enjoyed this anime :) and totally love Kairi. So happy with how it ended and I can't believe I ended up warming to Sae by the end!

The final episode, and the run-up to it, was a little disappointing. I was happy that Momo got back with Kairi, but her indecisiveness and the subplot involving Kairi's brother made the story drag towards the end. I was hoping for a man-to-man confrontation between Kairi and Toji for some extra drama, too - no love triangle is complete with two guys exchanging fists and screaming in manly fashion over the girl they love.

It also kind of sucked how the story ended RIGHT AFTER the kiss. There wasn't even a scene showing what happened after the end credits. I'm not in favour of pointless final episodes or the like, but it would've been nice to at least see what happened to them after all the drama had ended...

I posted a lengthy blog about Peach Girl; it containing pretty much all my thoughts: http://myanimelist.net/blog.php?eid=60360

This anime teaches you...
- to not make premature conclusions
- to not blindly believe everything someone says
- to be honest to yourself

Im also happy about the happy end =) Very satisfactory.
Even though I hardly watched it to the finale because of the work of Sae I'm glad that I decided to finish it and now I think its one of the best animes I've seen so far.
10/10

Best regards

Agreed!

Though it felt rushed, I still liked it, of course. :) I got the same feeling - that Touji would be a fair match for Momo, but... that he'd turn out to be just "decent" and that their relationship would just kind of be "lukewarm" in terms of love as opposed to something like what existed between Momo and Kairi. They had more of a 'spark' and although it may not be fair to say that Kairi loved her more than Touji, it sort of seemed like he did. (Or maybe he was just more of an extremist about it? Haha.)

Anyway, super enjoyable series. This last episode could have been better, and I think I would have liked a couple of extra minutes at the end or during the credits to show what happened after, but oh well. Still loved it. :)

I was happy with who Momo had ended up with.
The ending was amazing! I had been cheering on the Momo and Kairi couple the whole season. I could tell she was falling in love with him and then when it hit the end of the series I was super happy. Whenever I watch anime, the couples I cheer on never be together but in this they did and I was super happy. ♥

Overall, This anime is amazing.
I vote it a 10/10!

No right or wrong choice here. So, it's pretty anti-climatic, though not really predictable.

The logics involved in all the scenarios are utter shit. (Arguably one of the worst scripts ever)

The pacing is, no doubt, very coherent and easy to watch.

7/10 and I'm being very generous

This is the ending I wanted the first time I watched it. I didn't expect to like Kairi so much more, but there's a reason this anime will always have a special place in my heart.

Overall, it wasn't bad, but I think they left some important parts out, which made the anime a bit frustrating. For me, the ending was a bit bittersweet until I read the manga.
Kairi x Momo forever. Kairi was always the right choice. Touji was quite an annoying character.

I'm really glad it ended the way it did! I didn't like how she kept switching between them, but hey, the anime wouldn't have been as addicting if she wasn't. Overall, very fun watch, I'm glad I found this anime! :)

Am I crazy for liking Toji? Am I missing something? I don't get why everyone loves Kairi more! I'm glad Momo ended up with Kairi because she certainly didn't deserve such a nice guy! I love Toji. LOVE HIM.

Toji defended her from the beginning, and despite falling for Sae's manipulation (um, just like Momo did with Ryo) when he realized his mistake, he did his best to apologize and make it up to her. HE THEN BROKE UP WITH THE GIRL HE LOVED TO PROTECT HER even though it broke his heart and kept his distance when he thought she was happy with someone else. He's just the best! He protects Momo, was constantly there for her, patiently waited for her and finally even loved her enough to let her go. He was always so kind and considerate and thoughtful.

Let me tell you about that joker Kairi, he made Momo fall in love with him while he was actually IN LOVE WITH SOMEONE ELSE. He deliberately manipulated her with dishonest intentions. He then took his sweet time in deciding who he actually wanted, being ok with keeping MOMO in second place. If his confession to the nurse lady had gone well, he wouldn't have chosen momo anyway! Think about that for a second. If she had said "Ok, let's be together" do you think he would have given Momo a second thought? When push came to shove he didn't put Momo first, and instead of respecting her choice with Toji, grabs her and pulls her away. His behaviour was just sort of gross to me.

I want someone to re-edit the series with just the Toji scenes in them. Hell, I might do it myself to help soothe my nerves after this fiasco of an anime.

Still love it no matter how many times i've watched it, (which is bordering on 8 times i think since i just finished my 7th runthrough.) Never get tired of it. The only thing that could have made it better is a small epilogue of everyone else, momo and kairi included. I just find it sorta funny that the op was the biggest hint as to who momo chooses.

I agree toji should of been the one kairi is terrible and everything you just said is right,

Toji loved her so much he willingly hurt him self and pushed her away to save her, with kairi he had two girls and to me it looked like he had two just in case one dumped him so he could have the other one .......a back up just in case.

Toji should of been the one at least he's better

Quite a lovely ending I must say, in the end she did had a change of heart and well imo it's also the better choice for this story and for Momo... I really wonder what would've happened if she didn't changed her mind.

All in all a pretty annoying anime at first because of the bitch behavior of Sae but in the end it was pretty lovely! 8/10

I finally finished this anime i started it months ago but bc of Sae it was really hard to stay interested since all i wanted to do was smack the shit out of her....I am really glad that she for lack of a better phrase is turn over a new leaf.

I liked Kairi the moment he started on screen I am glad she picked him n yes i do feel bad for Touji but in all honest no where in Sae's deception did she say Touji couldnt tell Momo about what she was planning I think it would have been alittle better if Touji had at least tried to tell her about things like put a note in the pictures when he gave them to her that would have been a perfect way to tell her without Sae really knowing but that is just me

N i cant blame Sae for thinking she was pregnant when all the signs pointed to the fact that she was I mean yeah going to the doctor to find out officially yes is something she should have done before saying it but like i said a few of the normal signs were there n she is still in high school after all which brings me to the a$$hole who wanted to turn over a new leaf as well but for him i think he is a lost cause to be honest yeah he will try but i think he would continue to use n discard any woman he would be with. I did see a small ray of light for him but since they really didnt show where they were a year later or anything we dont know..

As for me I really enjoyed this anime however the romance side of things really really reminded me of Twilight without all the sparkly Vampires n over Grown Wolves of course but its like New Moon all over again...Dont get me wrong I like Twilight n yeah haters can hate all they want i dont care...but that doesnt mean i didnt like it just bc there is an anime that reminds me of Twilight

Would i watch this anime again I think I would just not any time soon since i have way way way to many anime I still need to watch that i havent seen but yes i would rewatch it again sometime in the furture.

I totally agree. I was so sad and mad at the end. Toji is her TRUE LOVE. I never liked Kairi and his pervy ways...Toji was much more of a gentleMAN. Toji felt lije a man to me, Kairi just a boy. Momo should gave stayed with Toji, They have history together. Kairi was good as a friend for advice and help. He was perfect as a FRIEND. Momo just aiNt for him though. After allll she went through with Toji,how happy she was, she leaves him for Kairi. Being the man he is Toji loved her enough to let her go.

I know Toji acted stupid many times because of stupid sae (OMG I still hate her), but he wised up, right? And in the end, once they graduated, they wouldn't have to see sae ever again, so their relationship would gave grown. I think momo is stupid for choosing Kairi, like whatever girl, you can do better.

Toji will always be the one who got away.
Toji x Momo 4ever!!

Wow at that misinterpreted suicide note. Wow at Touji holding Momo down. Wow at that blow up. Wow at that random jerk having the cell phone pouch. Wow at it conveniently being thrown into the sea. Wow at having a repeat performance of the rescue from the sea. Wow at Kairi being the winner.

I'll give this show some credit though. Sae certainly chilled out a bit since the beginning of the show, and I'm glad that she was able to acknowledge her own envy towards Momo, going so far as to relate these feelings to why she became infatuated with Ryo. That whole mess was a problem in of itself, but I still appreciated that tidbit. I also...err...appreciated how unpredictable the series is. At many times, the show went places I didn't expect it to go. As in, any ordinary show would have remained more moderate and direct, but Peach Girl goes out of its way to create as much drama as possible, utilizing coincidences, miscommunication, misunderstandings, eavesdropping, and outright malicious plots to their fullest effect. By the end of the series, I could honestly say that I was frustrated not just with Sae, but with the entire cast. Everyone had their fair share of absurd decisions attached to their names, so no singular character was really to blame for this whole screwed up scenario.

But yeah, this show was tough to get through. As an ending note, I find it amusing that by Kairi almost dying, he finally got together with Momo. It was just like Momo almost falling out of Touji's hospital room that got them to be together early in the series. I truly hope this series isn't implying that you need to almost-but-not-quite kill yourself to garner attention from your crush. I really, really hope not.

So Okayasu wins...I liked him more earlier than later. I feel bad for Toji, but he was an idiot for breaking up with Momo to begin with. He had the victory lined up early on. Momo has a nice tan look.



Somehow Sae ended up being maybe my favorite character. She kept things moving in this anime. She had some cute scenes too. She was a crafty one.

(Sorry for this long rant I just had to get this off of my chest)

This anime made me very angry and made me go on an emotional roller coaster but overall it was a good anime and I was so happy that she ended up with Okoyasu.

But the thing that made me very upset was how fleeting Momo’s emotions were like she never even really broke it off with Okoyasu and decided to go with Touji while Okoyasu was working so hard to try to get to her!!! Like who does that?!?
I understand how she was feeling but you can’t just move from one guy to the next without at least fully talking it out and breaking it off with the other person first.

Also I like that Touji was trying to protect Momo by dating Sae but he could have handled the situation better and not totally and completely broke her heart like that. He could have talked it out with her and told her the situation and told Okoyasu the situation and they could have came up with a plan to solve the problem
But instead he put everything on himself and hurt Momo dearly

First off, fucking YES that Momo went for Okayasu in the end. He became a bit more irritating with time, but man, love and the whole drama can mess you up pretty badly. I was also pleasantly surprised that Sae actually helped out in this intance. She was an aggravating beast through and through, yet she also had her hilarious moments and I came to appreciate her eventually.

Regarding Toji, I was a bit underwhelmed by how things were resolved with him and also by the lack of epilogue and how anticlimatic this finale was in general. It terms of tension it didn't differentiate itself much from all other dramatic and romantic highs. And there were a lot of them, we basically entered one high after the other. In a way this speaks for the qualities of this series, tho. I still have to note, it was usually nerve-wracking and challenged my patience with how repetive and contrived the drama appeared on the surface, but then I realized that doesn't look much different in real life. Momo represented a typical indecisive high school girl that wasn't able to cope with her feelings. Same goes for the others. I kinda value these flawed characters within this setting and premise and also the roughly realistic depiction of their struggle. It showcased the unpleasant sides of being in a relationship in school or college. Handled a bit clumsy, but you can't get everything.

So yeah, I actually enjoyed it for those aspects and also for the sheer craziness, which often ended up being unintentional funny xD

I don't know how the adaptation covered the comics series but if it tried to get 18 tomes of "romantic" turnabouts rather than following a precise and limited part of it, I guess it was unavoidable.
Do you know if this show crammed the whole manga in?

I know that they made some cuts, just in another thread the OP mentioned that they left out characterization for the soba shop owner. They probably didn't stop there.

Thanks Heavens! they are finally together. This anime was a crazy ride, so many ups and down came along the way but in the end momo-san made the right decision. The ending was really heartwarming. Kairi was a such a pure and sweet character but on the contrary, Kashiwagi-san was a twisted character, I used to detest her like hell in the beginning but not now cause she had suffered a lot as well. Anyway this show was great and it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time.
