well, i have to say. that ending was rather lame. but then again, this kind of story tends to have really frustrating characters that just annoy you to death. a single phone call and hes cured? well whatever it might have been, i think a different approach to that resolution might have been more effective. i liked the story, and the show over all wasn't really terrible. but still.

You'd probably like it a lot more if you were emotionally invested in the series. (Not that it is something you should be doing, the show should do that for you. You can call it bad timing, or just the wrong fit... or whatever). But in either case, I liked the ending, as a romanticist. Yeah, they probably could have done better... but, I enjoyed it at least.

The confession on the train was the highlight of this series. Such an amazing and touching scene, I still remember her words now, even though I finished this series over a year ago (I think... can't even remember when I started watching it).

for some reason, i watch romance type anime passively. although, i invest a great deal of emotion in some drama types, if i invest too much i tend to get burned out quick and drop the show temporarily till it gets out of my system. currently, this has happened with geass S2 and a couple others where i just don't wanna know what happens next. this one though, i was really drawn to it till i saw the last episode. then i felt like tearing my face off in frustration.

It was alright.

Guy extremely shy and indecisive.....nothing new, but hey at least he is not as lame as the guy from "Kimi ga Nozomu Eien".

Girls were ok.

Good thing they didnt drag it for 25 episodes which they could.

Pervert friend ..... why not?

Overall decent romance with some standart drama.

PS. Phone ringing every time he tried to confess was a bit too ....... cheap? could have at least added some variety.

I was emotionally caught here, yet it was a bit fast 6 episode only.. they move a clear fast pace but it's not enough for the viewers

EPIC ENDING!!!!! That was just pure magic, I can't believe how hard I cried!! When Yuka gave her speech, was amazing, and Iyori's phone call got me so bad!! Ichi is such a beast, he wooped dudes ass, and didn't care if he died!! I gotta read this much better than the first 2 ep OVA!! I love it, I hope they have the best life ever together!!! Urahara Out!!

I had a couple problems with this one.

Handshake? Really? No kiss? If they were going to do that I would have been more satisfied with end of episode 5. Also, the DVD message was not needed.

I like how they tied in the sub-plot with the creep into the end. This OVA had the potential to go School Days ending a few times there. Would have been more surprising.

Anyway, that was a great emotional ending for people who eat those kinda things up. Reminds me of 5 centimeters per second (even though I haven't finished it I kinda skimmed through it and know the ending :\)

Really liked the comedy throughout the series though. Lightened up the mood at the correct times.

Are you f'ing kidding me, this shit was the worst waste of time for a Saturday night. I am going to have to beat the living hell out of my friend who recommended me this series. Cliche up the wazoo, terrible narration, art a pity, and most of all, did I say cliche enough?

My bit of advice: If your looking for a way to get yourself pissed and pumped up for a fight, watch this series; I am sure you will be as pissed as me for a weak ass character.


How this POS ended:

OK people, let's not be so cynical here.

First off, it was not a hand shake, he was taking her hand. It was to show that they are now together.

And yes, for the most part, he was a very indecisive guy but in the last episode he swallowed his own feelings and was going to give up his dream so that she may chase hers without him holding her back. The fact that he got his ass kicked is just more realistic.
Did you really think that the power of love and some karate books was going to let him beat some guy twice his size?

Over all I give this one 9/10. Great art but the story did kind of drag in the middle, but great ending.

It even made up a little for Katsura's crappy ending in DNA>2.

Okay,that ending was extra lame, and tbh, overall it isnt something extraordinary. Good thing it was only 6 eps,so not that huge a waste of time. Having said that though, i must also say that it wasnt bad, infact it was pretty good,if compared to some other ones ive seen in this genre. What i liked is that it atleast had a definite ending, and they got together,which gave all the lame drama a slight bit of meaning.

Omg why did I watched this anime... I mean it's great but I was expecting a Ecchi, Romance, Comedy.... But I cryed half the time because of the drama... ow I'm way to soft for anime like this... the helpless feeling when she was captured a few episodes back and the love and... and dam it I'm crying again!

Great Anime! Never again ;P

First of all I admire seto for the sacrifices he made .. its a very sweet ending eventhough there's no kiss in the last part,,still i enjoyed every second of it and i really like this kind of anime its similar to Lamune and Zero no tsukaima 2 where the male heroine's Life is in danger at the end..i am weak in that kind of stuff so,,,a cried a Lot ... 4/5 for me . i could give it a 5 if only seto didn't open his eyes because of the caLL,,they should let Iori arrives first and let her cry apologize blame herself then thats the time he will open his eyes and forgot evertyhing about himself(AMNESIA) then it will take years for him to recover all his memories and and Iori's just waiting for him to come back to her and he will remember everthing and HAPPY EDNING .. thats the way to end it . :))

The story was really nice. Up tp episode 5 it was a solid 8 that could become 9 with a half decent ending. Then episode 6 arrives.
It's nice that they made it so she finished the play and then quit her job rather than the cliche running to the hospital scene. But a freaking hand-shake, not even a hug.
Also wth with the rooftop scene, how he got the video if it was on his closet. Someone picked it up over night?

7/10 ~ The fail to conclude a nice story.

Teratani is the man

I only wish that I had never stumbled across this piece of I finish almost everything even if I don't like it, hoping that it will redeem itself. This series didn't, it was just bad in just about everything. 2/5 for cliché, lame ending.

Teratani was a true bro though, if anything, he made this watchable. 4/10.

Iori calling on the phone instead of dropping everything to go to his side was realistic and saved us a lot of melodrama. I've read the first parts of the manga long ago that I've already forgotten it so I don't really care if this was a faithful adaptation or not. I'm glad of the way it ended since I'm such a sucker for happy endings. 7/10

I've got to agree, for a sidekick perverted character I think he's a great guy.

Dammit the ending was so frustrating!! The series was great besides that. Funny situations he gets himself into (could stop laughing/ cringing during the first few episodes), funny suspense too (end of episode 4 when he is about to confess), awesome friends, nice flashback plot, not too long, good romance... But the ending ruined what could have been a 9/10 series!! NO KISS?!? NOT EVEN A HUG?!?!? Wtf... 7/10

Basically this.

Where was the fucking kiss!? The first 5 episodes were really good, I'll give it that. I just felt they could've done better with concluding the series. If only it was a 12 episodes... ;-;

Hopefully the manga does better.

Pretty decent series all in all. My only gripe about this series is they ended it with a handshake. -_-

any cristicism would be injust to the author

Good series that only had 6 episodes. Wished that this turned into an anime. The manga was really good. Although it was only six episodes, I gotta say that they adapted it well.

over dramatic episode...They tried to fit a bit too much into this episode with the conflicts with the agency, the attacker guy, and the coma.

I don't know why they wanted to jump up a year. I would have much rather
seen them get closer before all this mess. I mean its the last episode is it too
much to ask for some love. And all we get is a HANDSHAKE at the end smmfh wow, but overall it was a decent romance. Chocked full of cliches and characters acting stupid/dense but life goes on. I got some enjoyment out of this.

The atmosphere was there for thr kiss.. Tho I still found the ending endearing but wouldve been perfect with a kiss instead of solely holding hands.

7/10 as it was pretty nice, love the artstyle and music was decent

Getting out of coma like this was meh.. As well as the continuous phone calls interupting his confession..
Wish it was this easy to get out of coma.. A lot of ppl would be saved
