Type: First Loves
Synopsis: There’s this group of teenage girls walking down the street. Being teenage girls in an anime, they talk about their love lives. One has to deal with two brothers, another with an ugly person, another with incest, and the last with, well, nothing really. The last one doesn’t really have any hang ups. Now the other three, man, do they have problems. Scary problems.
Pros: Its funnier than it should be. This show is basically a love comedy in the truest sense. It stars teenage girls dealing with relationship issues. Each one has to do with getting a boy to like you. So your enjoyment goes by the couple. I personally liked Ayumi’s dealings with Misao Zaitsu, a giant delinquent whose really just a big softy. I also really enjoyed Kei and Kasuda’s evolution, and felt it was the strongest story overall.
Cons: Like I said, this is a pretty pure love comedy. No action. Lots of melodrama. Your enjoyment goes by the couple. One deals with crushes on an older girl, self-consciousness over your body, intimacy issues, and incest (everybody’s favorite!). I found that unless it dealt with Misao Zaitsu or Kei/Kasuada, I just skipped the episode entirely. Their your meat. Everything else is just filler.
Watch it?: If you like lovey-dovey stuff, than yeah. (3/5)
MVP: Misao Zaitsu

Best Episode: Ep.1 “Beauty A and Monster Z” (its like Beauty and the Beat, but in anime world)
