(The reasons for everything in the ratings are explained in the review section at the end of the article)

* Visuals: Could be better
* Music: Very rockish and fitting
* Plot: Extremely humorous and well executed
* Overall rating: 8/10(Very good)

* Genre: Romance/Comedy

* Company: Toei Animation

* Format: 24 episodes

* Dates: 7 April 2007 – 29 September 2007

* Synopsis: A love story between a boy and a girl. The girl, Risa Koizumi, is 172 cm (5' 7") tall—much taller than the average Japanese girl. The boy, Atsushi Otani, is 156 cm (5'1 and a half") —way below the height of the average Japanese boy. Because of this, they are called the "All Hanshin Kyojin" after a popular comedy duo that has a similar height difference.

* Review:

Although the story only tackles serious issues once or twice and towards the end of the anime," Lovely Complex" was still a heart warming, extremely funny romantic comedy. I personally especially enjoyed it because I had always been quite short (Until recently when I finally grew :D) So it was good to see an anime which highlighted the fact something like height shouldn't matter in a relationship. So I especially recommend this anime to all the short guys and tall girls out there ^^

The plot was brilliant as a boy and a girl who have always kind of been enemies, making fun of each others height complexes end up discovering how much they truly like eachother. They battle their differences and the laughs of others in a romantic adventure. A few major characters are developed extremely well, Especially Risa and Otani (The two main characters.) But a few other characters were quite under-developed and could've been alot more detailed like Chiharu and Ryoji. Another complaint which must be mentioned was the visuals. They certainly weren't top notch animation... But the Brilliant story, fantastic music, and laugh out loud humor definately made up for it. By the way, when I say "Laugh out Loud" humor, I mean it. I mean, this was so funny... I sprained my left pinky falling off the chair laughing... The humor is clever/wittty, with good taste, and just flat out "FUNNY".

Although not the best anime ever made, "Lovely Complex" is definately a romantic comedy worth the time and the laughs. And hopefully people can learn from the principle/moral of this anime.
