Lovely Complex

Well, how should I put this...Lovely Complex quickly become one of my favorite romance comedy anime. It was fucking hilarious!
Koizumi Risa is a very tall girl -172cm while Ootani Atshushi is a short boy - 156cm. On first day of school, their teacher dubbed them as the "All Hanshin-Kyojin" (look up what it means yourself - I'm too lazy to explain). They both have strong characters and unique personality, which led to many disagreement and opposition, so they routinely fight and entertain their class with their antics.

At first they both made an alliance to help each other find a mate. Koizumi wants a guy taller than her (which is rare in Japan) and Ootani wants a girl that is nothing like Koizumi. But gradually Koizumi starts to develop special feeling for Ootani and here's where the best part start. Ootani done every possible thing to convey her feelings to Ootani but Ootani is too dense to even sense it although the rest of the school are aware of it. Eventually Ootani realize what is going on. I just love the way how he conveys his feeling to Koizumi once they start to date. It was so damn romantic. I would love to be treated that way. Hell, Ootani is exactly the type of guy I dream about (except for the height). Instead of standard Japanese (like in any other anime), most of the characters speak in Kansai-ben. It is also the other reason why I like Ootani so much. The way he speaks, it was so melodic, specially when he calls Koizumi 'aaho'.

This is the kind of anime that is so funny you just want to watch it over and over again even if you aren't gay or have tits.

This series had me in splits.Risa and Otani's Hanshin-Kyojin act was so hilarious.Definitely one of the best anime in the romance genre.

This anime is a good way to show how two different people can simply love each other without limitations. However, this isn't just about romance and comedy. It's about friendship too, right?
