Kimi to Boku. – 12

「中学生日記」 (Chuugakusei Nikki)
“Middle School Diary”

If there ever was an underrated character in this series, Shun would be it. Portrayed as the feminine male who can charm males and females alike, it was surprisingly shocking how that cute face can turn into a badass one when the time calls for it.

Kimi to Boku. – 09

「naked king」

This week’s episode of Kimi to Boku took a pretty strange turn. Instead of filling me up with the usual happy go-lucky feelings I’ve come to expect, I was getting so angry that I was ready to shove my fist through my monitor to smack some sense into Yuuki and Chizuru.

Kimi to Boku. – 08

「日給ヒーロー/先輩と僕。」 (Nikkyuu Hiiroo / Senpai to Boku.)
“Daily Wage Hero / Senpai and I.”

Unlike most shows in this genre where things can grow stale after watching the same characters, do the same things, with the same people, the same way, Kimi to Boku manages to shift things up every few weeks, keeping things pretty original.

“Next to an Apple”

If you haven’t been watching Kimi to Boku, now would be a great time to start, especially if you were turned off by the first few episodes that weren’t a great indication of how the series is as a whole!

Kimi to Boku. – 05, 06

「いつかの夏」 (Itsuka no Natsu)

As much as I hate to say it, Chizuru’s antics are slowly starting to grow old for me.

Kimi to Boku. – 04

「Noisy Medicine」

After such a rough start, Kimi to Boku is slowly turning into the show I expected it to be. While this may not be the best indication of whether or not a show is getting better, I found myself laughing a lot throughout this fourth episode.

Kimi to Boku. – 02

「チューリップの咲いた日」 (Chuurippu no Saita Hi)
“The Day the Tulips Bloomed”

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I’m having trouble understanding what Kimi to Boku is trying to do here; one episode in and it still seems slow. But my biggest complaint is I still don’t understand what kind of vibe it’s trying to give off. Maybe I’ve been spoiled with too many comedies that feature girls doing things that only girls can do?

Kimi to Boku. – 01

「ボクらの17回目の春に」 (Bokura no Juu Nana Kaime no Haru Ni)
“Our 17th Spring”

At the end of the day, there are only a few things I can say about this first episode of Kimi to Boku. At first, I wasn’t enjoying the way the character’s faces were drawn and I felt that the episode was moving really slow. But as I got into the gist of things and started to drop any reservations I had for this show, I started to really get drawn into the world that Kimi to Boku was trying to make.
