Anime in 200 Words: Good Morning Call

Premise: Two teenagers ending up renting the same apartment, chose to share it, and ended up falling in love. When they get into a fight, is their relationship doomed?

Audience: Good Morning Call is a sweet, romantic ball of shoujo goodness. Take a guess. ^_^

Relationships: For some reason, couples in these shows simply refuse to talk to each other. Angry? Ignore them. Sorry? Don’t tell them. In love? Definitely don’t mention it. When will they realize that communication fixes things? *sigh*

Love: They’re young, so the love in this show is idealistic and vulnerable. One mistake can endanger the whole relationship, but if they can over come it, then they’ll be together forever! If you’re not a fan, then skip this one.

Innocence: While there are two teenagers in a relationship and living together, there’s no sign that they have an adult relationship. Fans of pure, innocent love should enjoy this show.

Overall: Good Morning Call is a simple story, with charming, polished characters and a sweet ending. It’s not the deepest or most profound love story, but it certainly is cute. As long as you’re not expecting more, you should be fine.

Having just watched the anime i wish i had more to say than the OVA was boring. It made an attempt to show what some people in real relationships sometimes face. The fact that Yoshikawa forgot Uehara's birthday. Yes it can happen and its understandable that Uehara would get angry but i really don't think that there's any need to waste 20 minutes instead read the summary. Uehara forgives Yoshikawa and her present to him is a kiss. Maybe by the end of the OVA i was meant to want to know about the story like how they became a couple but after watching the OVA and the bland characters i didn't feel that way.

 

The characters weren't given any real personalities so it was hard to like the characters or even consider them to be remotely memorable. The story was bland. Even the animation was boring. I think the OVA if anything should be considered an extension of the manga so for someone who prefers anime this may just end up being a waste of 20 minutes.
