Thanks to his parents’ job transfer, high school freshman Kazunari Usa finally gets to enjoy living on his own in the Kawai Complex, a boarding house that provides meals for its residents. Ritsu, the senpai he admires, also lives in Kawai Complex, as do a few other “unique” individuals: his masochistic roommate Shirosaki; beautiful, big-breasted Mayumi who has no luck in finding men; and sly, predatory college woman Sayaka. Surrounded by these people, Usa never finds his daily life boring.

It’s difficult to produce a shoujo romance that doesn’t feel rushed, especially within that 12 episode time crunch. With shoujo romances I like to see a nice a steady progression between the two soon to be flowering pairings. That’s that’s exactly what I got with Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou – it’s a shoujo that’s not rushed. However it ends at the climax – and without a second season to wrap everything up.The story follows a high-schooler named Kazunari Usa as he moves into a boarding house complex, illustrating the unique blossoming relationship he has with fellow roommate, Ritsu Kawai. On top of that we see the connections Kazunari develops as a result from meeting his roommates.
The art and sound is an area where I find this anime excels in. The sound is perfect; everything from the pedalling of the bikes to the rustling of the bed sheets when someone wakes up is heard, it’s all there. The art is quite special as well, the colours are vibrant and pleasing to the eyes. I urge everyone who has not seen this series yet to download this series, do not steam this anime. Even if you are not a downloader, just download the first episode and compare the quality to that of streaming, you will enjoy and appreciate the art more and find the anime more enjoyable.
Charm and loveable characters are very difficult to radiate in an anime, specifically when we get to see a board spectrum of personalities from shy-introvert Ritsu to unusual/creepy Shirosaki to dysfunctional Mayumi. Even with that said everyone in this anime unusually interacts in harmony with each other, and I’m sure you will find someone from this anime that will gravitate towards you.Love in real life takes time and work, it doesn’t happen as soon as most romance anime depict it to be. It’s refreshing to see that within a short anime, the important aspects of love is not crunched into 12 episodes. Overall I loved this anime and have absolutely no complaints, if you want an authentic romance anime with some witty comedy, I’d suggest you watch Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou.
