Episode 1

Pretty funny stuff that was. This couple sure is quirky, and this whole concept of having a girl living her life with a bunch of bishonen who look like they are her age, but are actually in elementary school. Some of the jokes are good, others not so much. I'll give it another episode or two before deciding on this show. It has potential, but at the same time, things could go off the rails.

How does this not look like a 5th grader? But that's what he is.

Finished first episode.

It was so-so imo, The main guy kinda reminds me of Sata from that one Prince show from Fall. They introduced quite a diverse cast of characters though.

That was the most funny reverse harem I've seen in a while.

I mean, these guys even tho they look like hot senior high school students, they really are 5th grade students from elementary. And then they go along with their mental age with wiener-hands, learning how to masturbate outta park poles (cringes and lmao at the same time) and give Kanchos (enemas) at each another, made me laugh so hard.

In my opinion, many women (and men), addicted to this genre is gonna full blown love it or hate it.

In my case is so f'ing hilarious ill keep watching, lol :3

First Love Monster / HATSUKOI MONSTER EP 1 / So: I'm in Primary School. What Now?

Very funny Kanade saves Kaho but is a 5th grader ( she doent know ) asks him out and finds out / she has low self-esteem.

Some people may not like the age difference concept but it's kinda wacky with a zany cast and the Kasumi rooming house.

Reminds me of The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behaviors

( CR just lost this license / what a shame! )

http://www.crunchyroll.com/the-kawai-complex-guide-to-manors-and-hostel-behavior

BTW this no worst than Mitsudomoe which got good likes


The three Marui sisters, Mitsuba, Futaba, and Hitoha are not your typical Japanese students. Satoshi Yabe who's a newly hired teacher will have to learn to deal with these three girls as they terroize him or it will end up getting the best of him. Will he survive the Marui triplets?

Like the ED song Kimi ni Sasageru Sankonka / Requiem of Devoting Myself to You

Episode 2

And Kaho is introduced to Arashi, who is Chiaki's boyfriend and five years older. Arashi happens to be an otaku and he loves Renren (who is the girl that comes in during character intros). While all sorts of craziness is going on, Kaho is so unsure of herself as to whether or not she really can love Kanade. Kanade lets her know that her love is real. That was an alright episode there, but those wiener jokes and stuff are really grating.

First Love Monster / HATSUKOI MONSTER EP 2 / "Ah, Kasumi House"

As incorrect or absurb you may think this anime is ( I do a lot too! ) Kanade may be one of the nicest boyfreinds since Takeo

BTW STUDIO Deen has had 2 recent hits on off the wall anime

KonoSuba
Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto

And the Critically aclaimed Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Studio_Deen

Kaho meets Kanade's father who is the landlord / the tenants are all eccentric.

Taga tells Kaho there is a welcoming party nut it is just him and tires to corner Kaho but Kanade comes in and punches him not only because the lady bug he was sent after didnt have a lot of spots but more he made Kaho cry.

Episode 3

Kaho and Kanade have a date at the park, and Kaho's fantasies really are something. In the end, the two of them are connecting with each other by digging a tunnel through a sand dome. Then the boys get really fired up playing three-life dodgeball outside a dagashi shop. Then the next step is to eat the same food together as the two of them have cake on a stick. Then comes the first kiss with Shinohara watching. That was date really was something, and I had a feeling something would be up abotu that kiss.

Dropped this in the middle of episode three because it's honestly turning into cringe on several levels.

I mean yeah, it kinda started out as cringe? But let's look at what we've got here:

We've got a 16yo girl knowingly dating an 11yo boy because he doesn't look like one.
We've got a girl who says it's okay to date "disappointments" as long as they're nice and look good...and she's dating a pedophile who's into crossplaying little boys.
Then we've got a gay, sadistic bully who's around 20ish, preying (possibly) on an 11yo boy as an object of interest, and preying on a 16yo girl as an object of abuse.

Outside of that, every episode is dick, balls, and poop jokes from Kanade and his two idiot friends, and exactly one person sees the problem with Kaho and Kanade dating and thinks it needs to stop.

I really, really wanted to hold out hope for this show because it was something unusual and started off interesting, but...I'm sorry. I can't take this level of cringe.

Episode 4

Kanade's reveals that he lost his mother two years ago and has been looking for solace. And while Kanade is good at math, he's pretty bad at just about everything else, so he needs a tutor. As for who his tutor is, it's a busty high school girl named Mafuyu, and she's a yandere who eats underpants and has a secret she doesn't want anybody to know. She keeps Shugo's undies to sniff, and she becomes a pretty fearsome monster when somebody knows about it. Well, this episode totally overdid it with the sexual jokes and stuff, and I think my tolerance has been stretched to its limit.

Wtf? This week's episode just went full crazy with that tutor girl.

Seriously though, I'm like "what the hell?" after watching it.

To be honest, I dont even know how I feel about this anime. It gets so funny at one point then it gets all serious the next. It's like a constant back & forth thing almost each episode & it just throws me off. At one point, I wanted to drop this, but since I'm halfway there, might as well follow it until the end. Kaho & Kanade reminds me of Ririchiyo & Miketsukami from Inu x Boku though.
