Yuuto Ayase is not interested in girls - if his two housemates are anything to go by, girls are loud, brazen slobs that are best left alone. However, when Yuuto accidentally discovers an important secret of his school’s most popular female, Haruka Nogizaka, the two become bound in a budding friendship. All too soon, Yuuto discovers that, despite her flawless appearance, Haruka is clumsy, naive, and a closet otaku... and he just might be falling for her.

Haruka Nogizaka is the most popular girl at her school, she is admired by her peers and sort after by all the boys but she has a secret, she is a closet otaku. After a mishap in the library Yuuto Ayase found out her secret. Instead of telling anyone Yuuto decides to keep her secret and quickly become Haruka friend. After befriending Haruka, Yuuto quickly discovers that apart from seemingly perfect appearance Haruka is a shy, clumsy and indecisive person. Can Yuuto prevent Haruka’s secret from being revealed and as they become closer is Yuuto falling for her too? The story of Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu seems pretty standard, girl has a secret and the boy finds out about it, they become friends then slowly begin to develop feeling for each other, the typical high school romance story. However Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu seemed to have step up story wise.  The story is quite funny, touching and has plenty of tender moments. There is plenty of romantic tension and slight bit of ecchi thrown in and the execution is done very well. The character’s back stories are explore somewhat, which added good character depth, and a connection with audience is certainly there. Although the characters can but put nicely into the stereotypes I didn’t mind because Yuuto and Haruka work so well together. The minor characters play an important part in developing Yuuto and Haruka and certainly add a nice touch to the story. The music and animation are pretty standard nothing really memorable but it does its job fine so I have no complaints. Overall a good anime, it’s funny, has a good story and nice romance. The otaku culture was also a nice touch and it definitely mixed things up a bit.
