Ayumi, Kei, Koyoi, Rika and Nao are five middle school friends whose hot topic of conversation is, as always, love. Ayumi dreams of having a boy confess to her and can't understand the idea that receiving unwanted confessions can be troublesome. She even believes that she will happily accept any guy who approaches her - that is, until she receives a love letter from Misao, a large, delinquent high school boy whose very presence makes small children cry! Not wanting to date him but too scared to reject him, Ayumi has no idea what to do, especially when Misao, now nicknamed Beast-kun by the girls, begins following her to and from school. To make matters worse, Ayumi then falls for Mamoru, a boy in her class who is Beast-kun's brother! With plenty of experiences in life and love left ahead, will the girls retain their naive beliefs, or is it time to shake off that brother complex and realize that appearances aren't everything?
I can't really understand why other reviews describe Hatsukoi Limited so negativly. I, someone who is NOT a big fan of the romance genre, enjoyed this anime immensely. It has a unique story line, focusing on the individual story of each of the main characters. I don't know about you, but I love that kind of thing. And in the end, all of the stories clash together for one great big grand finale. It was a rather sweet anime. It started out kind of iffy for me, but the more I watched the more it grew on me. It's one of the few anime I've seen where a character starts with one personality, and due to what happens throughout the anime, changes completely - for the better. But, the thing about these characters that makes it truly great is, even though they start the way they do, they aren't unlikeable. Through out the anime, each story ultimately teaches you that no matter what happens, it's all about what's on the inside and to believe in yourself, in the guise of fluffy love stories. Not unbearably fluffy, but enough to make feel the warm fuzzies, you know? Also, the story as a whole left me sad that it ended. The merging of the different stories worked in such a way that no loose ends were left untied. I finished that anime with a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment. Definitely something I'd recommend to others.
Before starting this series, I had the assumption that the story wouldn't get far, considering that it was only 12 episodes. The story is full of one sided love, and a few of love triangles. Every episode seemed to be focused on a different relationship(except one that is continuous throughout the series). Some of the episodes had its moments where it made me smile. Though some of the humor was quite generic, it actually was suitable in the situations. Uncommon in the genre, I mentioned that there were plenty of relationships going on. It seemed awkward to picture considering it was 12 episodes. It seemed that numerous relationships were just slapped on as filler (filler from what?). So most of the relationships wouldn't even matter to the viewer, because they happened so fast. background music was not rememorable, as if I did not realize if I had heard any while watching it. Animation and sound was clean and standard. Characters were standard(though the girl with the brother complex was slightly interesting.)This is a nice series to watch to take a break from the other animes in the genre.
Even though these scores are pretty low, I really do recommend you watch this one. This anime basically teaches you that looks aren't important and there are plenty of twists. also, if you have ever watched "Lovely Complex" their is a situation in this anime similar to it. Definately watch this if you are a romantic/comedy anime lover!
