The manga is gold, the promo looks good, but I don't know about Rinko's voice. Takeo's voice is the epitome of manliness and Mokoto's fits his character. Now that I listen to it, Takeo sounds so similar to Elfman... I can hear him shouting "Man!" Hope it's a good 24 episodes.

It didn't appear with a countdown timer, but nevertheless the first episode is up as scheduled.

Episode 1

If there was ever a show where you don't ever judge a book by its cover it's this one. Takeo looks like an ogre, but has the heart of an angel. It's great that he has such a nice friend in Makoto. Takeo saved a girl from a molester, but took his actions too far that ended up getting him suspended. That girl happens to be great at baking sweets. And the two get along just like that. Certainly a nice way to begin this show that figures to be fun.

Well that was a pretty good first episode. Certainly had me lauging quite a bit. Certainly gave us a good idea of the main characters already and how things will start out with them.

Episode 1

From the artwork to the narrative and the chemistry between the three main leads, I think I'm going to enjoy this show a lot. Seems like pacing is kinda slow for now but that's okay. It's the first episode so story will pick up faster. I think it might take me awhile to get used to Yamato's voice though because it's so soft and girly; in contrast to Takeo. However, they are both VERY kind.

Solid start overall. This has a lot of potential although I'm VERY curious to see how they will adapt this considering the manga has what...10+ chapters out so far?

And this punk deserves it:

Episode 1
Like Takeo.

Dislike Rinko,find her voice obnoxious and dislike the overly cute atmosphere they're forcing in any scene she's in (reminds me of Murano in Parasyte,but thankfully atleast HanaKana doesn't voice her in this).

But despite that think this had a good start and that I might end up liking this more than a majority of the shows this season.

Episode 1


Takeo isn't quite your standard handsome protagonist, but once you've watched the episode, you can't help loving him. He is just a lovable oaf with a heart of gold.

He saves a girl called Yamato, but due to past experiences, he assumes his handsome best friend Suna is the one she is interested in and sacrifices his own crush on her for Suna, who made a rare comment about her. Takeo, you're a bro and you deserve so much more.

The stark contrast in Yamato and Takeo's voices was amusing to hear.

It felt a little bit slow to start off with, but it's still good, with lots of promise.

Found her voice irritating, but guess really going for the polar opposite of Takeo

Think I'll probably be watching for Takeo alone.

So I think I understand why for once the handsome guy Suna likes a girl. (I'd just like to say that I have NOT read the manga so if i say anything that's explained later it's mostly because its a highly predictable anime)

While I'm sure all those other girls are for the most nice people, probably all of them wouldn't ever go out with a guy like Takeo if he were to actually tel them his feelings. Where as this girl is showing genuine interest in Takeo and is doing all this nice stuff for him, which in Suna's mind tell him that she isn't as shallow as all those other girls and is just a all around nice person.

Now to clarify, I'm not trying to say that not being into a guy like Takeo makes a girl shallow, because it doesn't whatsoever, just that in contrast to the other girls who only like Suna for his looks and bad-boy attitude, this girl (can you tell I forgot her name sorry ) likes Takeo because he is a nice person.

Episode 1: My Story

Never have I seen an anime that had lips so defined as this one. Also Yamato reminds me of Yoshioka Futaba from Blue Spring Ride. I think its the eyes.

I was actually avoiding this for awhile cause I thought to myself, yeah I can't get used to that character design, but I am glad I took a shot at it. Yeah Kind of judged the book by its cover for this one.

Anyways I like where this is headed and the characters are lovable, can't really hate on any of them and they did nothing wrong for me to hate them either.

I like to see where this story takes me.

Also did you see that the name on Takeo's house had exclamation points. It was pretty funny.

EDIT: Waaahhhhhh 24 episodes? Great!

Hope they don't drag out the seemingly blatant misunderstanding of Takeo's too much

Going to have to seriously be funny with it for it not to grate on me

I beg to differ with all the guys that believe Rinko's voice is annoying/inappropriate/irritating. :3

Pretty much these are fictional characters, especially when we talk about Takeo's complexion and voice. At the very least, there must be very few stereotypical japanese that are 6.56 feet tall and weights 264.5 pounds that are in first year of senior high school, not to mention that tone of voice too. So yeah, Rinko is supposed to -complement- Takeo's character in all the possible ways, including his voice.

To try to standardize anime characters to fit real life, in my humble opinion, will make the whole anime industry dull and boring.

That being said, I know there are plenty of voice actresses around with different tones of voice for japanese dubbing. There is a hell lot of competition in Japan to be in an anime, so I'm pretty sure they chose her voice because it was the mangaka's best choice or, at least, the director's best choice for the part. (´・ω・)ノ
