Kazunari Usa is a high school freshman who will start living alone due to his parents now working in a different area. Excited for his new independent life, he hopes to go about his teenage days without the worry of dealing with any strange people, but as he soon discovers, his new boarding house Kawai Complex is far from ordinary. The various tenants at Kawai Complex are all quite eccentric characters. Shirosaki, Kazunari's roommate, is a pervert and masochist; Mayumi Nishikino, a borderline alcoholic office lady, hates couples because of her unfortunate luck with men; and Sayaka Watanabe, a seemingly innocent college student, enjoys leading men on. Shocked with the lack of decent individuals at his new residence, Kazunari is about to leave when he runs into shy senior student Ritsu Kawai and finds himself slowly falling in love with her.

An absolutely adorable romcom between an awkward guy and a quiet bookworm. The supporting cast really makes the show.


Proof that an interesting enough cast can make even the most dull plots worth watching. To bad there isn’t more though.


house of complex people


Very entertaining slice of life romcom with a bunch of crazy characters.


A show i enjoyed a lot back when it aired, the characters made the show great

Wolfskid >///<

I have to say that every EP was very enjoyable and I wish there was more! Sweet show with the best supporting casts possible.


All that for a phone number and email address? C’mon man.



    "We, who hurt each other so terribly, will sit here licking each other's wounds. We damaged goods will each seek the other out in comfort. If you are to die tomorrow, I'm fine with my life ending then as well. But if you want to live for me for one more day,I'll go on living with you today as well. And thus begins a tale of kindred, bound by their scars. Soaked in red and written in black, a story of blood. One of which I'll never speak. Our very own, precious as it is, story of scars. And I have no intention of reciting it to anyone."
