Futaba Yoshioka used to be an attractive and popular middle-schooler—well liked by the opposite sex, but ostracized by the girls. Nevertheless, she was able to brush all that off, because the only opinion that truly mattered to her was that of Kou Tanaka, a classmate with whom she shared a shelter from rain once, followed by quite a few other precious and significant memories. She even succeeded at making plans to meet with the quiet and innocent boy at the summer festival, but a simple misunderstanding, and Tanaka's subsequent disappearance, left her walking the halls of her school friendless. Now in high school, Futaba is not your typical adolescent girl. Determined to become a class favorite this time, she avoids all unwanted attention and, instead of acting cute and feminine, only stands out through her tomboyish behavior and disheveled look. But still, her world is soon turned upside down when the only boy she ever liked unexpectedly comes into her life once again—except he goes by the name of Kou Mabuchi now, and it is not his name alone that has gone through a sea change.

Far from the best shoujo romance out there. Watch it if you just need to watch all of this genre, but you’d be better with something else.


My favourite romance show I’ve ever come across. Doesn’t break any conventions, but executes on them with amazing quality.


super vanilla shoujo romance, and I eat that shit up


Very cute. Why Kou is so handsome?


I was a little disappointed by the ending, but it was still a pretty good show.


A good romance anime, nothing too special. Well written characters and good music. Shame we’ll probably never get that 2’nd season.


MOE MOE MOE~ love the story, the characters. the guy is cute also the girl is will scream in this anime for the romantic scenes



    I make bad encodes and whine about subs and if I'm feeling particularly memey, I make bad subs too!
