At the school Kotoko Aihara (CV: Nana Mizuki) attends, the classes are based on the exam scores of the individual, so the students in class A are those with best scores (the smartest) and the ones in F are the ones with the worst (the stupidest). Kotoko has since she entered high school been in love with Naoki Irie (CV: Daisuke Hirakawa) the top student of her year and one day she decides to confess her love and is miserably rejected. What’s worse is that her house is destroyed and she and her father, Shigeo (CV: Bin Shimada), moves in with a friend of the father… And that’s the Irie family’s home! Now Kotoko has to live with the person who rejected her love while still having feelings for him.
Not really a bad romance anime targeted towards girl, even if the plot is pretty typical. The best part is that while most shows stops when they become a couple or when they start living “happily ever after”, the story keeps going as more of a slice of life show with pregnancy, marriage and what not. It spans over several years, in other words.
AT THE END THEY HAVE A KID AND ARE MARRIED SO WHY DOES SHE KEEP CALLING HIM “IRIE-KUN”?. I wouldn’t call my HUSBAND by his last name. EVER.
But overall, it’s not great. It’s fine at best. I don’t particularly like it. Well, I’m not a fan of the girly romance animes (Kimi ni Todoke being the only show I love to death), so I’m prolly biased, and I also though it sometimes was hard to follow the sense of time and at times it felt slow.
