Also, the art isn't as off as everyone is saying it is. If you compare the art style of the manga in its early chapters to that of the more recent chapters, namely looking at Eba for this example, there is quite a change. The anime is somewhat a mix of the two, but if I had to choose, I'd actually say the anime more resembles the more recent chapters art style. It may not be a perfect replica of the manga art, but it is definitely similar.

Honestly stop bitching about speedsubs... if u want something better learn the gd language.

Really nice OVA, even they didn't show everything from the start the small flashbacks really worked out for them.

When is next ova releasing?
huh?

I didn't find this horrible direction to be bad at all, just because i'm reading manga. Feels bad man.
Rin's and Kanzaki's seiyuu are a good match, especially Kanzaki sounds cool with dat Kansai dialect - which doesn't work for Haruto that much, especially when he says "Eba", sounds so wrong. Art wasn't as bad as i was expecting after all bad opinions though, Kanzaki looked good and Eba wasn't half bad. Haruto looks even more plain that in manga tho, and he should be blonde no matter what any of producers or even Seo think.
The worst thing in all this shit was definitely that thing that was supposed to be Akari. She was drawn so fucking bad, especially hair. And horribly unmatched seiyuu that made my ears bleed.

After all, please don't make a tv series if Akari's gonna be like that thing here. Other than that, tv series should work out better than this shitty oav, just adapt the story from the start not the middle of manga.

really beautiful - at last a romantic story that feels like real life - the loves we lose from the past, the things we give up, sometimes moving on when we shouldn't, the story of real life - and sometimes ending up alone after all...can't wait for the second one! animation was truly gorgeous, especially the ending scene at the river - great symbolism for the river of our past sweeping into the future, sometimes right past each other...

Seeing this brought back a bitter taste, but it was somewhat nostalgic to see this part of the story again. I really hope that they'll turn it into a full series with animations done by Bones or Mad House :D. I really love this manga so yeah, bring a full series ^^

Oh yeah definitely, from all of KnIM chapter i really loves the times when she get her revenge.

But i think the OVA should show more about how Eba's screwed Haruto's life before she left to Tokyo.

Honoka's appearance is not too bad but i want to see Suzuka in this OVA too

Did you miss her? She distracted Fuka with a Teddy Bear when Nanami made Haruto grab her chest.

Quite an interesting series as it seems. But how much of the manga does this first OVA cover? I want to start reading the manga and it wouldn't be bad to know which chapter I should start with in order to understand everything. Thanks for the answer.

This actually started on the middle, around chapter 60+ and they showed some of the first events in a flashback.
You should start reading from the very beginning.

The art style was a bit different, but I still enjoyed it. I really enjoyed the coloring they did for this. The music was also pretty enjoyable. Haruto's VA seemed a little off too me. I'd say for low budget, they did a pretty decent job. Hope we can see a series out of this when the manga finishes.

What are you talking about revenge? She never does the things she does with the intent of getting revenge, she understood the situation she witnessed, and what happens next would have happened irregardless of whether she saw that.

DAT KANSAI DIALECT! <3


Actually Hiroshima is situated in southern Japan (Chugoku) and not in the Kansai. Thus their accent is called Hiroshima-ben.

Anyway, regarding the OVA, I must admit I didn't remember a lot of things that happened early in the manga so I was kind of surprised (was Eba really going out with him at this point of the manga ? I mean, Haruto used to be in love with Akari in the beginning and realized his feelings much, much later?) plus of course the character design which doesn't resemble the original one at all, especially that of Haruto and Yuzuki. Well, overall it was kinda good even though I really doubt the people who just discovered KimiMachi with this OVA could really anything satisfactory from that.

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

Thanks for the recommendation, mate. Just finished catching up on the manga (spent hours reading it- a true masterpiece imo) and after seeing the characters' original drawings I now do agree that the OVA doesn't do them justice.

It's one of those that you just can't put down. Asuka's arc is my favourite so far; fawkin amazing.

Yeah, the character designs are pretty cut, but as other people said, it's low budget, what can you expect. :/ I actually quite liked the voices though, even though they were slightly off. Kanzaki wasn't as cute as I always imagined her though :(

This needs to be made into a series though. It would be amazing.
No.

Not sure why people are complaining about the art. The same thing happened when they adapted Suzuka. Didnt change the fact that the content was still the same though.

It was a good episode. Kind of sucks that it's an OVA though. Would have liked to see at least a 12 episode season or maybe a movie.

PS. Loved the Suzuka character cameos ^_^.

I feel the artwork and style was a bit off, it didn´t do the amazing manga art justice.
And for me what´s left after removing the beautiful art is all that rage and cringing. Still this episode didn´t contain some of the more awkward scenes.

3/5

Oh wow, the good parts were animated in this OVA. Really liked it. However the animation is obviously pretty different to the manga artwork, as expected of a low budget OVA. Voice Acting is alright though some characters voices sound a bit off, don't really suit the character. :\
Really wish Kimi No Iru Machi actually became an Anime though, would be so much better.

Ah, seeing Rin for a little bit was awesome. :D Can't wait for the next OVA, hoping to see Asuka. <3

WOW, WTF with the drawing?, they dont look at all like the manga....

Sad...
well you need to consider the budgetT_T it was just ova bundled with the 17th manga volume so if i were you i won't raise my expectations...

it's intended to animate and summarize the manga not really adapt everything~

and so far it's a pretty good anime... and if the viewers would like it, maybe some animation company will serialized it to anime this time...

fishcaketwice is an clown who has never even seen the original manga artwork, so has no place commenting on whether the art is good or bad.

IT SUCKED.

if this title was to ever get a full series, it better bloody not be with this half arsed studio.
i can only laugh at ur comment...

congratulations... squall69r you are now one of the greatest moron in the entire human history... well the thing is fishcaketwice has more thumbs up than thumbs down...

secondly, you probably don't know that the ova was just bundled with the 17th volume release so expect a lower budget and probably a bit turned-off animation... it was intended to animate and summarize the story from the startT_T

The manga would be a splendid candidate for an anime adaption. I've read the manga (did I already mention that I love it? <3) and the OVA- even if it consists out of two parts- isn't enough to show the manga in all its glory. A season with maybe 24 episodes (yeah I'm dreaming right now) on the other hand would be a good start.
