Anime Review: Lovely Complex



Risa and Otani are always being laughed at as the comedy duo. Risa, a girl, is taller than the average girl, and Otani, a boy, is shorter than the average boy. The two are always bickering and even their teacher sees them as a comedy act. But as their friendship develops, so do Risa’s feelings toward Otani. (Source: AniDB)

Lots of people recommended me this anime and told me that it’s the best anime they’ve ever seen. Yet I hated it. It was pretty much one of the worst stories I’ve ever seen.


1- The heroin falls in love with her guy friend whom she’ve known for more than a year. I mean seriously you just realized that you loved him? – LAME
2- She gets rejected twice yet she still chase after him. – No self worth -.-
3- He realizes that he likes her for all the reasons that you know you have a friend. – So technically he can’t tell the difference between friendship and love.
4- Last but not least they are best friends and loves yet the relationship is still fragile?! – That’s just too much!!

Honestly no shoujo anime can suck more than this.

Just to be fair though the anime did win me in comedy aspect. It was incredibly funny. The other high point of that anime is that they didn’t leave the friends behind and showed each couples story. As for the main story it’s a total fail!!

Here is a trailer:

Overall Rate: 5/10
