So, wow. How much do I NOT like Takishima? He shares that whole arrogant genius thing with Irie in Itazura na Kiss (blatant rec here), but damn it, he looks more annoying.

EDIT: After only the first episode, it comes across like a wannabe Ouran, actually (another blatant rec).

Hah, that's pretty accurate. Was thinking the same. Been promising myself I would watch pretty much every show this spring, but shows like this who lack orginality and just feels "decent" makes me rethink. Then again, maybe I shouldn't rant, I haven't seen that many episodes.

Episode 2:


Episode 3:


This is a very average show - part of its problem is that the comedy is just too overcooked. I'm enjoying Itazura na Kiss much more. If I don't drop it, it'll be just because I want to review it. Lol.

Was I the only one who thought that Takishima's dad was kinda creepy. Still that episode was the best so far.I like how Takishima cares for Hikari and all she can think about is beat him.These moments are the best.

I am enjoying this show so far. I actually never even thought about the fact that it is aimed at girls until a friend pointed that out to me today. Typically, the women characters I have seen in those types of shows are all starstruck by guys 24/7 and it is generally annoying. This show doesn't seem to have almost any of that. It is just one ridiculous thing after another. Which is ok by me because lately I seem to be embracing the ridiculous.

Yeah, the shows were the guys are gaagaa over the girls is targeted at girls, and the shows where the girls are gaagaa over the guys is targeted at guys lol.

Also I really did not like the first and second episode, but the following episodes are pretty good actually.

I think the show is just "okay". It doesn't really measure up to other similar high school romance comedies. Only watching it as this season doesn't have much that's outstanding.
