It goes without saying that this series shows how Pat Benetar was right, Love Is A Battlefield. Nearly my entire household enjoys this one. A witty play on the classic love-pyramid, this series has all the elements of any other romantic-comedy high-school anime with dialogue and drama that don’t pull punches but leave out a lot of the angst. A refreshing spin on timeless storytelling, to say the least!
The artistic lines are clean, the color muted but still offering a balance of contrasts that please the eye, so I’ll push it to 4 1/2 of 5 stars.OreShura
