Hi so i was just digging through old favorites and i remembered a particular Slice of Life anime from like a decade ago but for got the title and sadly the main character names. I created this thread so maybe someone may know or remember this anime/manga title and i hope other people who post oldies may find answers as well.

here is the synopsis from what i remember: in high school a boy who its all too special falls in love with one of the most popular girls in school (pretty generic) he is bullied sometimes and has a geeky friend with glasses (nothing special there). the girl has aspirations to become an actress and the boy has... i forget... anyway through some determination, lucky scenarios, and guts they come lovers by the end of high school. when they graduated, the guy works at a convenience store and the girl gets picked up by a famous director and gets really popular. they see each other but its hard because the girl is so busy. however, the director (the guy had a white suit, blond hair *i think and his assistant always wore Gucci frames) feels its better if the guy breaks up with the girl because the girl is a golden egg and can becomes much better from the "pain." they strong arm the guy with words and he broke up with her with the worst excuse ever. the guy eventually finds a post online about someone is going to attempt to harm and kidnap his now ex-girlfriend. hes goes and thwarts the assailant from the shadows *batman style!! but was injured in the process. he falls into a coma and would not wake up.. his friends guy with glasses and girl who was best friend with girlfriend all go and meet the actress before her big debut (she was wearing a blond wig for her part *a bit fugly from what i remember) and pleaded with her to come and see him and save him, i remember they reveal why he broke up and the reason he wont wake up because she was not in his real world, she rejects the director and calls the guy,

*spoiler

guy wakes up from her voice, and they meet again at the roof of the hospital and fade white... the end

sorry its so long, I just loved anime but its been so long and i hardly remember half the shows i watched in the past. if anyone can figure it out from all that, please respond *also posting a screen shot or two may help. I'm also willing to help people find their old favorites from the past as well.

thank you so much in advanced!

ETA: Oh I forgot to mention 2 detail. The guy he fought with at the end that put him into a coma was the bully from high school ( they are all out of high school at this point) also during ending credits the girl sends him a message which he listens to explaining her decision to leave the acting business

What year was it when the anime came out? This the only way to narrow things.

I can only make a general guess between 2010 and 2003 because it was during s Time I was in school or early college sorry my memory of this anime is very limited I just remember the ending having an impact I do remember it's during a time I was into slice of life and romance and one of the anime I watched during that period was kimikiss pure rouge and that came out 2006 so give or take 3 years from that I think

I'm looking for a manga I read ages ago, and can't remember the name.

It's school kids, either middle school or high school. They all have some kind of super natural powers, but they are lame. Like one of the characters can see little arrows over other people's heads which point to the person they like.

The main character isn't well liked because he lied about having a power. He claimed his power was knowing what other people's powers were, but he was actually just really intuitive.

Can't think of any more specifics, really. The MC had a love interest, and they both liked each other but didn't really realize it to the point that I read.

Anyone know what this is? I want to see if it ever concluded.

I'm not a mod or anything like that. But in future if you want a higher chance your question to get answered you should make your thread about one.
