  • Wish there was more!
    I read through The Kawai Complex manga up to chapter 93 which is well beyond what the anime covers. This anime adaptation has lived up to the hype I experienced while reading the manga, and covered most of the chapters minus a few that were excluded. Over all, well done. I just hope they continue making the anime adaptation for it.

  • Truly a great show to watch!
    Somewhat similar to the Harumi Takahashi's classic "Meson Ikkoku" - a high-school boy living in an old apartment with whole bunch of weird adults, but even more fun! I never have a single episode I couldn't stop laughing. We Japanese may call Ritsu as "a Lotus flower in muddy marsh". No wonder Usa fell in love with her despite his helpless shyness - always being subject of poking from Kawai's ...

  • Fun Characters But Bland Overall
    I really enjoyed the main characters. I thought that they were interesting and were a good foil for Usa. However, the story ultimately did not go anywhere, not even a decent conclusion to the "arc". The show was entertaining but I would not watch it again.

  • A Hidden Gem! Can't Go Wrong With This Show <3
    Glad to have found this show as I've been in need of a good laugh! Good art work, characters and comedy! The romance could have been better throughout the show as well as the ending but its something i'd definitely would re-watch. Really wish there was a second season though

  • More Com than Rom-Com
    The first thing to know about this show is that it's a ton of fun and absolutely, gut-bustingly hilarious. The storylines range from very silly to actually serious, but the good news is that no matter how serious things get, you're never far from a laugh. Something I actually really like about this series is how it brings you to care about the characters and the drama in their lives, but still be ...

  • Pretty Interesting :)
    I was appreciative of the deeper story that was running through the series amid the constant hilarious situations that the anime presented.

    It was a pretty good balance between serious, character growth, back story and humor. I did think the story dragged now and again, but nothing that made me stop watching. I do see the potential for another season, but doubt it'll be happening.

    Still ...

  • Awkward Uncertainty at its finiest
    In this great romantic comedy anime the main male character fights against his own awkwardness and the pressures of those who have a hand in his life. I loved to see his daily struggle to not only fit in, but to chase after the desires of his own heart. He never seems to catch a break even with everyone pulling for him in their own way. Makes for a fun watch that lightens your day!

  • Loved it :D.........the title character min needs to be lowered :/
    I don't watch "slice of life" anime, but I got a recommendation from a friend. So I decided to check it out, and feel instantly in love it this anime. The art work is beautiful, and all the characters get a story. The friend that recommended this too me said that one of the main characters(Rit-chan) was way to relatable to me in all the wrong ways. After watching it I have to sadly agree... ...

  • Turned Out to be Really Good
    "The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior" is another romance comedy type anime. But unlike many others, this one manages to set itself apart by using unique story aspects. This anime was made by Brain's Base, the same studio that made "Natsume yuujin-cho" and "Dances with Devils" and it does not disappoint. Though it may not be their best work, "The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors ...

  • Cute Story, Nice Art
    The show has a wonderful cast of characters, everyone is interesting and the interactions between age groups, the issues that each person of each age group experiences are also fun to watch. I would say the romantic development of the main characters is a little stale compared to the energy in the house, but watching it for the house itself makes it a fun watch. I definitely hope for a second ...
