My Boyfriend in Orange

High school student Moe has moved to a new town after the death of her father. Moe’s already having enough trouble fitting into her new class as it is, so she’s totally mortified when she ends up being "rescued" by local firefighter Kyosuke during a fire drill... in front of all the kids at school. But the embarrassing incident might be a blessing in disguise, because gruff-but-kind Kyosuke gives Moe the courage she needs to leap out of her comfort zone as she aims to leave her loner days behind. Not to mention she’s soon falling head over heels for him…!

Maybe I'm just a sucker for the shoujo basics, but this has been entertaining. The shimmery, hyu~ungh cuteness and romantic yearnings made me feel good in my heart. I love the blushing scenes, and seeing Moe rolling around on feir bed in teenage gid, and I want to root for feir earnest love. The plots themselves are pretty basic and largely just consist of gooey moments between the main couple as well as some love rivals and side romances (to add some extra dramatic intrigue). It's very wholesome and sweet. A recurring theme is the intimacy involved with learning about the insecurities of others, and how vulnerability and letting people see your weak sides is a good thing. Moe is also shown to be very clumsy and prone to getting into dangerous situations, leading to an overabundance of scenes where Ebihara saves fem--a recurring damsel in distress. Though seeing shirtless hot guys being all dreamy and dependable isn't the worst thing in the world. I like the characters, and I think that's what makes the story enjoyable at the end of the day. The art is often pretty simplistic and unappealing, but it frequently has its cute moments. The swirly cheek-blushes that are sometimes used are unique, but that also makes them a tad distracting. I think the black-hole chibi eyes are an...interesting technique. The plaid patterns and other such pasted-on screentone effects don't flow with the clothes, which can make it look awkward.
