    More First-Year Antics
    Convenience Store Boy Friends is good, solid slice-of-life, focusing upon a group of high school first-years as they adapt to their new environment and their changing relationships--particularly as concerns the budding of romance. Adolescence is a time of discovery and growth, and these kids seemed poised to do a lot of both. The small, nuanced gestures of friendship we witness ring true, ...

    One episode is enough
    I was looking forward to this one, but, if the first episode is a good sample, the best word to describe this anime is "wooden." Wooden characters, wooden dialogue, wooden plot. No one put much effort or imagination into the animation or the script. Is this based on a game? It has that feeling.

    I just didn't get any feeling from this
    I love slice of life romantic animes.. but I have a rule.. if the animation isn't good the story better be good.. and I feel the animation quality isn't good enough to make up for the lack of... all of this.

    Like other reviews its just stiff.. I started zoning out during all the chatter which wasn't really giving anything.. and the reactions of the characters weren't really full of emotion.. I ...

  • As of the first episode
    So, obviously the anime follows the description.

    I gave the show a shot after reading several similar reviews that weren't so enlightening. I'm not sure why people are claiming the animation is inconsistent or "off". So far, it's a typical high school romance of two very different types of people, both for the male and female main characters.

    Essentially, you have two separate types. On one ...

    My slice of life for the Season
    I really love slice of life anime with romance and this feels that void i have been wanting to fill for a while now. The two male characters are polar opposites, one is very out going and popular who speaks his mind and doesn't lie. But because he is so popular the girl he likes thinks he is making fun of her because he is so popular. While on the other hand the main male lead is very quite and ...

    IT'S COMPLETELY ADORABLE!
    The characters are cute, the concept is cute, it's just a really good slice of life anime. It doesn't seem like it's gonna be that deep, but that's fine. It's sweet and honest and, if I haven't used this word enough, cute. It's refreshing to see something that doesn't have a lot of fan service or overly animated breasts. I'm writing this after episode two, but it's hinting that there will be more ...

    Emotions are very weakly expressed
    the characters have no shading at all , the emotions seemed to be almost delayed when expressed, and everyone is too good looking , like even the store workers are models for gods sake. the story isn't that bad like people are saying, its weird but not bad, its actually pretty funny and realistic when you look past these things, but the animation and style will make you cringe from time to ...

    The anime starts slow but it slowly builds up on you
    This series is different from many series within this category of school life, in many aspects.
    Firstly the characters don´t stand out, they are not your typical "Hey its that super hot guy /girl from that super hot bla bla bla" or "I don't need friends" , they are normal characters like everyone else.
    The art is different yet enjoyable, sometimes it can be a bit awkward but its much more ...

    Animation, Expressions in particular are slightly off...But this is a cute story.
    Animation... more so the expressions in particular are slightly off in this anime. Im not sure what exactly it is but the characters have this weird delay to their expressions or voices...Makes things more awkward in already intended awkward scenes. The story is super adorable though and so far It hasn't kept me from continuing to watch this series. Two very close friends each have ...

    Cute idea but boring
    I love the late 90's/early 2000 throwback storytelling but they didn't enrich the story with a plot other than "the guys try to get with the girls". They visit the kobini often but the kombini doesn't have a place in the story other than being a "location". Why aren't we focusing on the employees and show only tidbits about the kids visiting instead?
    I enjoyed the comedy Korean comic "Convenience ...
