The athletic males in the show I think look interesting or at least pretty and attractive. I noticed the animation tried doing different skin tones which is a new one usually they just make someone dark. The cast might be to big to go really slow my guess we might jump around a lot with story.

Episode 1

The romance is okay, but everything else is flat. Production doesn't stand out and the narrative barely holds up.

What's up with the characters calling each other by their full names? Yeesh.

Episode 1

Towa gets the most focus here as he's a class rep and not exactly taking his job as seriously as he does with his work at the convenience store.


Hmm, we must not have been watching the same show, because I'm pretty sure he's in the soccer club and not one of those two dark-haired guys we saw working at the convenience store.

Anyway...I'm all for a good slice-of-life show, but this one really, really drags in the pacing. I'll give it one, maybe two more episodes to see if it gets interesting.

Well nothing really stood out about this one, but I still liked it. Haha I guess I'm just not very picky. I'll keep watching.

Yeah I got who he was talking about, thanks for missing my point--it didn't look to me like he worked there, more like he was hanging out there. I might have just missed it since the employees' uniforms were pretty close in color to the school uniforms and the show was kind of putting me to sleep, but I didn't get the sense that he actually worked there.

If I'm wrong, I'm wrong, I'll admit it. Not gonna rewatch the episode to see if I'm wrong though. Once was enough.

Don't necessarily mind Yet Another High School Romance anime, but this was Dullsville. I could deal with that, but the awkward and unnatural animation means it's probably not a keeper.

I thought it was a reverse harem were the lonely girl ends up shopping or working at a convenience store full of good looking guys. lol seems like a little more serious version of "Tsundere Children" only with a store and fewer main characters either way seems like a cool watch!

Finally watched this episode. The adaptation from the drama CD is very... lacking. The MCs could've been fleshed out better. The premise of the konbini and how it is connected to the six male MCs and their respective love interests wasn't established well. And although Konbini Kareshi is based on a series of situations rather than a solid story, the adaptation should have made it more cohesive. Even knowing the background ahead of time, I was lost on a few scenes. Some moments were unnecessarily slow while others were jumbled with too much — like when Mikado, Masamune and Nasa (the guy with the frying pan) were on the screen while Towa and Mishima were doing a voice-over of completely unrelated dialogue. That felt misplaced.

Notable highlight: All six VAs from the CD were cast for the anime. Towa's is especially fun to listen to (he's the soccer guy).

I hope this show improves. I was looking forward to it!

Episode 2

This time, it's Mishima that gets the most focus, and he's a swimmer who is close friends with Honda. Mishima is not exactly pleased with the way Honda has been treating Mashiki and things get really heated. That was pretty amusing with Honda's little brother thinking that they are gay. In the end, all is well as Honda said all the right things there at the end. Well, I must say that while the show is pretty interesting, the presentation could have been better to say the least.

Episode 2 was pretty good. It was nice to see the boys make some progress.

I also laughed at the scene where they were fighting and Mishima's brother is yeling down the stairs that they were gay. It will be fun to see these relationships unfold.

After a fairly shallow and clunky first episode, I thought the second episode had far more depth and fleshed out the characters.

If it keeps up like this, it'll be a pretty good series.

The relationship between Towa and the class rep girl is so vastly more interesting and appealing than that of the other two. I'll stick around just for that.

Don't call her that :)

But yeah, I'm watching it for those two.
