First Love Monster

High schooler Kaho Nikaido is having trouble adjusting to her new life in Tokyo. It doesn’t get any easier when she is nearly hit by a truck and saved by the handsome Kanade Takahashi! Infatuated with Kanade, she works up the courage to confess. But he warns that if Kaho learns who he is, she won’t want him. What could possibly keep her from this stud? Maybe the fact that he’s…a fifth grader?!

For those of you who are like me and take one read of the summary and go 'hell yeah, this sh*t is bound to be hilarious' ... DON'T. Just... seriously, don't even go there! -_-' I don't even know where to begin with what's wrong with this anime! I could start with the juvenile humor... you know, poop jokes. And no, I'm not kidding... The amount of poop jokes in this anime is just too damn high! -_-" Plus, there are also a lot of jokes about body parts (and if you're looking at your lower regions you're on the right track). (⊃﹏⊂)  The plot circles around a high school girl named Kaho from an upper class family who moves away from her family into a boarding house where she is saved by a really hot guy (Kanade) who just so happens to be a TEN year old! A 5th grader! Which, quite frankly, sounds like the set up of a really bad joke!  The girl is even given an out and instead of taking it she continues dating him! (┛ಠДಠ)┛彡┻━┻ It's not even that there aren't other cute single guys her age in the house ... because there are! One, who admittedly, is a complete a$$hole, but the other is perfectly fine and yet ... she goes for the friggin' ten year old! o͡͡͡͡͡͡╮(。>口<。)╭o͡͡͡͡͡͡ ᵑ৹! While the animation is actually quite good, and the OST is unremarkable but passable, the VA's chosen for their roles are actually spectacular (Kanade's VA is my favorite... which is just ... unfortunate T^T).  However, the horrendous plot and horrible cast of characters are regrettably highlighted. Very few of the characters are actually likable (Kaz and Kouta are the only two that I actually like. And that's just sad...). I can't even begin to tell you why I continued to watch this horrible piece of garbage but ... once I hit the halfway point I just told myself I was going to see it through to the end. I think Kouta is the main reason I continued watching this. He's the guy I was rooting for from episode one to steal Kaho from the ten year old Kanade. ...but, of course, sometimes we don't get what we wish for. If you are secretly a ten year old on the inside (or even in reality) then this anime is perfect for you. If you think poop, fart, and lower body jokes are funny, then look no farther as this is the perfect form of entertainment for you. If you are a sane person and wish to retain your sanity then ... RUUUUUNNN!!! Run away fast and run away far and do not look back! Do NOT! Don't say I didn't warn you...
