Lovely Complex is a story of a boy and a girl. The girl, Koizumi Risa, is much taller than the average Japanese girl; and the boy, Atsushi Otani, is much shorter than the average Japanese boy. Due to their immense difference in size and constant bickering with each other, the duo is unwillingly the school’s comic relief. As Risa and Otani continue to provide endless laughter for the masses, their friendship develops; and with that, so does Risa’s feelings for Otani...
Ten-year-old genius Chiyo, animal-loving Sakaki, loudmouth Tomo, athletic Kagura, weight-conscious Yomi and dim-witted Osaka are six friends who share laughs, good times, and a high school homeroom. With scary (and sometimes perverted) teachers, school festivals, penguin suits and general hilarity abounding, you can be sure that there's never a dull day in the life of one of these students!
Both series are very funny and combine all kinds of personalities. While Azumanga Daioh has only enclosed episodes, Lovely Complex is following a storyline throughout all episodes. I enjoyed both series and if you liked one, I'm sure you love the other one too!
Tomoya Okazaki is a third-year high school student who is generally bored with life and doesn't take his studies, future, or anything else seriously. One day, however, he meets a lonely-looking girl in the school courtyard, Nagisa Furukawa. She explains to him the source of her loneliness: she had missed a lot of the previous school year and thus is repeating her third year; everybody that she knew has already graduated, and she is lonely. Tomoya is rather indifferent at first, but decides that he has nothing better to do and spends increasingly more time helping Nagisa restore the school drama club. As his relationship with Nagisa grows, Tomoya begins to open up to various other people around the school as well...
Though it may be a bit weird to recommend Lovely Complex to Clannad, I think fans of the comedic timing of Clannad will surely enjoy this too. Though Clannad is a bit more on the dramatic side, but we cant hide the fact the it has some awesome comedy too, if you enjoyed Sanae-san and Akio's antics, and how everyone picks on Sumehara, you'll definitely enjoy Lovely Complex (and vice versa).
Once upon a time, two brothers passed the happy days of their childhood by studying alchemy, which is governed by the equal transfer principle: an eye for an eye -- you can't get more than you give. But these brothers tried to defy that law, and a horrific accident resulted. Now, the older brother, Edward, is called the Full Metal Alchemist because of his metal limbs, and the younger, Alphonse, is a soul without a body, trapped within the confines of an automaton. Together they search for the power to restore themselves, to find the lives they lost so long ago...
In these series two characters seemed completely alike: Atsushi Otani and Edward Elric. If you liked at least one of them you'll definatelly like the other one. Both are short, hate to be called midgets, have a explosive atitude, but sometimes can be really serious and make really smart decisions. So although the themes of these two animes are different, Lovely Complex is about school romance and Fullmetal Alchemist is more fantasy-like, but the jokes surrounding those two main characters are really alike. So if you want to laught a lot - watch them both :)
While Takemoto uncovers a path for himself, his love for Hagu is forcing him to lead a difficult college life. Takemoto, Hagu, and Morita are still trying to deal with their love triangle, and each of them must make a decision. Furthermore, Mayama must decide how to proceed with Rika, as she is leaving for Spain. The pain of love will continue to hurt many and even cause them to separate. Now, each of them must take on their chosen paths and walk towards the future.
So what happens when someone falls in love and the other person never realises? It is this theme that is common to both Honey and Clover and Lovely Complex. Because of the use of comedy and dramatic scenes, you feel that the relationships experienced in the anime are part of your very life. Through in similiar artistic styles and some great interesting script and a combination that covers pretty much every part of relationship forming. With both series there is a turning point from the past selves to their paths that they are taking.
Kurata Sana has a very eventful life. Though she’s only in the 5th grade, she’s the star of a popular TV Show called “Child’s Toy”. She lives with her eccentric mother and her boyfriend aka manager aka pimp, and faces hell at school. Her archenemy, Hayama Akito, turns the classroom into chaos each day, but Sana is finally ready to put her foot down! Can she defeat Akito and take control of her class? And more importantly, how will she deal with the secrets she finds about him?
Much of the spirited banter between the male and female leads of Lovely Complex and Kodomo no Omocha carries a similar tone. It's part jab, part caress, and all charm. Certainly, if you like the interplay between Sana and Akito in Kodocha, you'll like the back-and-forth jabs of Risa and Atsushi in LoveCom, and vice versa.
