So much happens in just 24 episodes

This anime has a lot of feels, good and bad.

You see the main character Kotoko transfer from a mere high school girl infatuated and loving Noaki from afar to...well, basically, having a family with him. In just 24 episodes. That's so different from other animes I've watched, where the couple only shares their first kiss by the end of a series.

There are times I was in despair because of the plot. Noaki is often very cold and cruel to Kotoko, and it breaks my heart. He is seemingly perfect, because he's so smart and handsome, but he's still so flawed when it comes to treating his girlfriend and future wife. Of course, there are candid and sweet moments, but those harsh moments definitely leave a scar to what kind of relationship they actually share.

I really didn't like the fact that Kotoko was sooooo stupid and clumsy (as people around her emphasized often), but they were still a cute couple. I just wish...they were happier, and maybe moved at a more "normal" pace when it came to romance.
<<Of course, I know that's not an expectation suitable for real life, but after all, I am talking about an anime. And that's just my opinion, I'm not asking for confirmation.>>

All in all, I do not regret watching it, but I definitely could have enjoyed it more if there were more characteristics to my liking. (i.e., if Noaki was nicer, if they had more scenes of them in high school and not in their work life, and if Kotoko wasn't so, well, desperate and clumsy.) But I'm not criticizing the production, those were just my suggestions.

Lastly, I really liked the closing song they played in some of the episodes, called Jikan Yo Tomare. It's very catchy and tugs at the heartstrings.

And of course, Noaki was really hot as a doctor.

Determination is the key!!

WOW!!! this anime was amazing. This anime is about a girl named Kotoko Aihara , who confessed her feeling to Naoki Irie , but he rejected her. Along the way something unexpected happens to her. You will have to watch the anime to find out the rest. I like how this anime starts in high school then it shows how they are after high school when they go to college and beyond.

That Anime was pretty cool because of Kotoko and Irie-Kun as well.
Irie was a very GENIUS! while it's the opposite of Kotoko but in the end they wll be couples and so on they will have a children that sounds pretty much haha. Even though there IQ are very far to reach that's not the reason. IT'S LOVE! really

Itazura na Kiss is one of the best anime romance ever! That's of course you like the kind where the girl fights for the guy and someday soon he'll give in and take her! Watching the first episode of Itazura na Kiss reeled me in, before you knew it was sitting here at the computer all day and night watching it till the end xD but it sucked how I had to wait for entire week to pass by to watch it again T.T
It's a lovely anime about a unfortunated girl falls for promised guy yet they complete each other so cute!

Well, for starters, I can not tell you enough how many times I watched this series! It was so amazingly good and played out. The story line starts off with Kotoko (like any other high school girl) and her crush on the handsome, smart Ire-kun. While she's planning on giving him her love letter, her house suddenly collapses from an earth quake! And the worst part is, she ends up staying at her dad's friend's house, which is where Ire-kun lives! Ah this anime is full of twist, humor and alot of romance ^^ But, you'll have to watch to uncover the rest. Enjoy~

Itazura na Kiss is a cute story about a girl named Kotoko Aihara. Kotoko is an average schoolgirl in class F who happens to be in love with the top student of their school, Naoki Irie. She lived with her dad...until an earthquake destroyed their home. Imagine Kotoko's surprised when her dad announced that they'll be living with his friend's family and that family turned out to be Naoki's family!

Watch Kotoko and her hilarious attempts to succed as she fought with many rivals to win the cold Noaki's heart in this short but cute anime.

What happens when you marry young.

Even after Kotoko, the main character gets her guy, this anime not only shows her wedding and after wedding life; but follows Irie and her through their college/medical school years as well as early parenthood. The main character may irk you sometimes, but this anime is cute, funny, and will make you go "so that's how it works!". Give it some time in the beginning however, characters will change.

Yes, this is the typical high-school love story that's just smothered with romance. But what makes Itazura Na Kiss special? IT'S WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE GIRL GETS THE GUY. What I loved most about this show was that the story didn't end at the wedding, IT CONTINUED! You get to see the problems the couple has once they're married and together, such as jealousy and more "personal" issues! *Wink* OOOOOH! And yes, I love irie and kotoko. They are the complete opposites of each other, but they fit oh-so well. This is a great anime in every aspect that will have you laughing, crying, and even cringing at certain moments, yet you just can't help but watch!
