Kidou Eita is a simple man who intends to get into med school with a fully paid scholarship. Because of this, he has no thoughts about love unlike other teenagers. Meanwhile, his childhood friend, Harusaki Chiwa, always eats with him and probably likes him, although that hasn’t been made clear yet.
At school, after a seat change, Kidou ends up sitting next to the prettiest girl in class, Natsukawa Masuzu. After a few days where he ignores her completely, she confesses to him, and after some discussion we learn that she just wants a fake boyfriend to get away from all the attention the guys give her. In the end, she blackmails him into doing it, and Kidou’s thoughts go to Chiwa, who probably won’t let things go easily like this.
Note: I’ve read the manga for this. Got bored. Dropped it.
Well, I knew this wasn’t going to be a masterpiece from the start. However, since the beginning of the manga was interesting, I was still expecting better animation than this. I’ll forget about the second half for now and rant for a bit, because honest to God I almost fell asleep after 10 minutes.
The art is bad, the animation is bad, Chiwa looks like shit and she talks like she’s retarded. Honestly, I thought I was watching a really bad dubbed anime at some point because she was talking so slow in the beginning. Everything was going at a turtle’s pace. I don’t care about you going to buy groceries… Shut up… Just leave… Anyways. Rant over – let’s move on.
In the end, the second half was much better than the first one. When Masuzu showed up, it was obvious that she was going to be THE girl of the story, however it was unexpected for her to suddenly turn around and blackmail Kidou with his diary. I loved the way she opened the book with the Death Note reference all around it. The second part of the show was pretty funny, and I might have possibly been interested, however I know this whole show turns into a harem/comedy where nothing happens, so I’ll back out right now from the clichés.
I knew this was going to be meh, however it turned out even worse because it seems like the animation company only half-assed their job as well. I won’t be watching this, and certainly won’t be blogging it.
