Definitely relates to my life. I always went out of my way to do nice things for people but never really got anything in return. This includes basically doing all of the work in school for my friends, giving them money when they needed it, etc... I'm too kind to people, and i'm certainly just average-looking if not below average, so women don't approach me, and apparently the ones that my friends tell me that like me.. i'm oblivious to.

I simply say that more Yamato-esque women need to exist.

Not really. Kind of the opposite really. I was always the big oafish guy who always tried to talk to the pretty girls and never got anywhere, but they would holler at my more attractive friends.

I've yet to read the manga but the synopsis spoke to me too well.

And I really feel for the guy. Many years of having no one pay attention to him(nice guy with a heart of gold) and all the girls look at his good looking best friend(who shows very little emotion);
And even when he saves a girl on a train who was being molested; who ends up wanting to know him more than his friend, he doesn't see that because of what he has dealt with all over the years.

I like this. I really like this kind of romance.
Where the girl falls for someone for "who he is" and not for "what he is and what he has."



Wanna go on a date with me?

but no. His friend Suna is waaaay better than him. You have to watch the anime to see for yourself!

Me too. Being 6'3" in Junior High made me stand out like a sore thumb. But I think arthritis has taken its toll and I've shrunk a bit.

Even if you were asking, I'd have to decline :v
I've been watching, I just haven't been updating.
Seeing the reason Suna rejected those girls, he's a true bro

DUDE IKR! Suna is like the most awesomest guy in the world! Like I'm so touched by his selflessness :D. He's the only reason why I still watch the anime. Yamato and Takeo really annoy me tho -_-.

(Lol I like how you checked my profile before you posted, lol!!! The troll worked :D). But, had you not, I woulda announced: GIRLS! THIS IS THE GUY FOR ALL OF YOU :D!!!

Yep. 6'1" by freshman year. Worst part is I was in drama, the school paper and baseball through highschool. I was all over the place and didn't fit in anywhere.

I knew you were joking but I always double-check before I reply on certain things :v
The only thing I don't like about the TaYama pair is that they are too lovey dovey at certain times.
Still a good anime though :T

I'm sorry. Sounds like neither of use had a lot of fun in high school. My dad was in the USA so I went to 3 different high schools in a 2 year period. But I did love university though.

Military brats lifestyle growing up rules. I wouldn't change it for nothing. But I do apologize since I lost the F out of the USAF. My dad was Army, but only during WWII.

Mawkish? Definitely not.

I like this show, but I really wish I liked it more than I do. But Takeo is the lynch-pin. It might just be a case of how much each viewer's own experience of high school relates to what's happening on screen, but for me there are a lot of similarities, so I'm rooting for the big guy. For that reason, I'll see it through to the (bitter?) end.

It's not a series for everyone, and plenty are going to hate it, but it's sweet and earnest and that counts for a lot. Besides, it's subverting the traditional romance formula, and I'm all for that.


......you dare question the AnimeKami?!
