Rofl, agree about the voice. This show is a 5/10 for me... it was interesting enough to finally get through after dropping it for a month... but it sucked in far too many aspects to rate higher =/

-Characters sucked nads (Riku sucked, girls were pretty boring, few other semi-interesting characters otherwise though)

-The randomness of tons of girls falling in love with Riku (which i don't mind in some cases but it was just too poorly done in this one)

-Riku being the volleyball girls boyfriend for the entire show, and the stupidness of how they became boyfriend and girlfriend (GAWD)

-Riku's voice was something i would've been alot happier not knowing existed, and Riku being retarded for most of the show

Well, most of these are things that alot of anime have.. but Tokimeki seemed to shine brighter than others in these aspects. But thats all i can think of off the top of my head, i'm sure theres plenty more annoying things in this anime i forgot about.

I liked the ending because he ended up moving away, but he was still in contact. It seemed a lot more realistic than all those males that suddenly decide to not move when love is confessed.

Still a 7 for me though, should have fleshed out the head ornament thing a little more.

I tolerated his voice for 25 episodes and the last episode was this disappointment.
The anime has its value, i liked that girl from the swimming team and there were alot of other things that were enjoyable.

In the end he just left the town and thats it... could be better.

-Poor Comedy
-Poor Voice Actors (Kasuga's voice is annoying like shit. Riku's voice is somewhat like with no life at all or better, the voice actor is not acting at all.)
-Poor Ending

-Good Story
-Good Art
-Good School Concept

The biggest problem I had with this show, other than how predictable it was, was the main four characters. Aoba was a jerk pretty often to anyone who wasn't Sayuri. Kasuga was too forceful, and Mina was borderline stalker. Then we get Sayuri, who was so boring and emotionless for pretty much the entire series. Where is the personality on these girls that's appealing? Out of the three, Kasuga had the best one I'd say but even then...

Honestly though, it was a typical harem anime so I pretty much knew what was going to happen by the first episode. I don't mind that he ends up picking Sayuri but I wish they could make it less obvious. Also, as most of you said, the ending was terrible. At least it didn't end with him picking nobody and everybody being magically happy, or even worse, him picking one and everyone still being magically happy (which is the case with this genre most of the time).

I watched this anime just becaue it was something to watch that was a romance, and I wanted to watch a romance. Throughout the series, I keep hoping that the story line will get better and things will progress but they really didn't. The ending was especially shit and the whole anime was rather predictable. New guy falls for most popular girl in school, told she is out of his league, somehow new guy becomes popular in a a sense, new guy and popular girl start talking, everyone is amazed that they are friends, two other girls like him but he's too blind to notice, they're just as pretty as the popular girl, but for some reason everyone fancies the popular girl with zero personality, and in the end they like each other BUT have some really terrible way of saying it and don't express any signs of affection.

The only things that were random were: the chick who only said, "pyu pyu pyu" and somehow Aoba knew what it was saying and tha stupid cleaning thing that gives people afros. Noted, it was fucking stupidly random.

Not something I'd recommend because the two main characters literally have no personality and the storyline is dead.

"It's just...a bad dream! Wake up, wake up...!"

I just finished this anime and I agree that this is a good anime in the beginning but I think somewhere getting closer to the end it all went downhill. First off I do not understand why he fell for Amamiya when he already had a girl who confessed to him who was more energetic, fun to be around, and cuter than Amamiya. -----&gt;&gt;&gt;Kasuga.

Amamiya had boring personality , she got jealous easily, she was overall nothing compared to Kasuga. I think Aoba should of picked Kasuga but he had no shame in stringing her along and then when its time to go, cut her loose. After she endured the fever just to be with him I thought he would of fell for her but he still couldn't love a girl who would go through such great lengths just to be with him. Aoba was a indecisive, uncaring piece of shit. Mina was sort of already out of the race as she didn't go on not one date and all she had connected with him was him watching her swim.

The ending would of been best if Aoba picked Kasuga, or a girl that was not one of the three main girls who liked him. Like childhood friend or something.

I would of liked if he had feelings for his childhood friend "the super idol girl" but instead he acted afraid and stupid towards her. I would of enjoyed him telling Amamiya..."there is someone else I love." Or better yet while I was watchign the episode i kept thinking since he didn't show Mina or Kasuga he accepted one of their feelings and woudl tell Amamiya that he was sorry and Loved Kasuga but it just didn't work out like that instead they just did the obvious thing and made him end up with Amamiya. I'm going to go watch something better now to clean my head. ^^

Ill start off by pointing out that so far I have only watched about 8 episodes or so and then I read the episode summaries on wiki before watching the last episode so there may be things that Im missing on. I did this out of frustration and heart ache towards this series.

I agree disappointing end but I take it since he asked for her number and her making a call in the end, they are doing a long distance relationship.

Her final words I think were aimed at the students in general (given the images shown) and not at him. Id like to think that they pulled off long distance till graduation were they can be together again.

I would have preferred him to be more of one of those guys that decides to stand on his own two feet and stay behind for his gf especially considering his feelings on transfers and making memories.

I take the scenes of him visiting the shrine and fountain was him talking to the girls and saying that he couldnt accept their feelings. To me this was reflected in minas words of thanks for giving me courage and because he actually showed up to the fountain.

I dont take him for as much as the asshole as others have labeled him. To my knowledge he and Kasuga were never actually dating. She got that into her head and forced it onto him, he said on several occasions that they werent like that. Yes he should have sat her down and cleared up the confusion sometime before. Hurting one girl because your helping another one I cant blame him for, being nice to someone and helping them is being a nice human being. If the other ones get the wrong idea its just a misunderstanding nothing more. Should you stop being nice to someone because one of your other 'friends' gets jealous? I think not.

I do agree that he was dense at times, should have growed a pair and tried harder to set things straight with everyone as clear any misunderstandings and not get their hopes up. But the one thing I wont put him down is for being nice to people.

I would have also liked to see some more footage of their future or some scenes on how they were going to/handling the long distance relationship either in the end credits or an ova, maybe showing more texting and maybe meeting up for some time during a school holiday or even just a photo tken together on a night stand or something. I dont understand why so many shows like end on similar terms and still dont take advantage of ova to make things better.

This episode sort of felt like watching the pilot episode from the first part..but that confession was rather weak lol

Overall not bad though and I liked the OP song of the entire series as I did not skip it.

Not bad tbh. 7/10.

Its been a while since I had this feeling after watching a rom/com series..Did not expect it to be this good.I love every characters and enjoyed every episode..truly one of the best..I like it even more because Cheesy moments between Aoba and Saiyuri is not forced every single episode unlike other romance animes that makes you wanna drop it because of its uber romance.. Ending could be better though

This series deserves a higher rating on MAL..7.9 or 8 is acceptable..

Posts: 2051 know this just reminds me of KimiKiss and True Tears. Why does he pick the girl he does in the end? Oh because she's hot..woo

Can we have some...romance between the two maybe? Like actual development and actual character?

I'm not sure what this series is trying to accomplish as it's not a "feel good" show because you just end up feeling bad for the 2 girls who genuinely like him. And it certainly doesn't have any depth or complexity to it.

So yeah please at all cost, just skip it.

Aoba's a quick one to leave early. Kasuga relationship would've never worked, Aoba stated they were never dating in the first place, she was forcing herself on him. Would've been interesting for Yayoi route. Oh look, Sayuri proclaims her love to Aoba, and they exchange numbers.

Overall: what a chore to watch. Goddamn spineless MC.

5/10 teetering on 4.

I don't get why people talk shit about sayuri, like, she is most likely quite depressed form all the work she has been through, in the end,she literally said that she is her self when she is around aoba. Don't worry, I havent forgot about kastuga and mina, sure, their feeling were hurt, but remember, they still have each other's mail, they can maybe all meet up when it's summer and whatnot, three girls liked one guy,two's feeling are going to be hurt, in the end, it was aoba' s choice,the reason he chose sayuri,is because how much they have been through since ep1,so just leave her alone ok? I DO give this anime 10 out 10,the only complaint is it's too predictable, I'll agree with that.Thats all I have to say...
