Name: Kimi to Boku (You and I)
Author: Hotta Kiichi
Genre(s):Comedy, Drama, Romance, School Life, Shounen, Slice Of Life
Note: This review mostly talk about anime because I watch anime first and read the manga later.
Story line: About 4 high school boys who have been together since kindergarden and now in high school.
My first impression: I laugh a lot. It does not really stand out but it’s not lame like those usual school life’s stories. You know, finding your true love and stuffs like that. It’s odd but somehow you still can see yourself in there. It means things in there actually happen in REAL LIFE. Always end in very unexpected way and yet still attracted me (maybe I’m easy to get caught into any anime…) There is no actions and the plot is slow. I read a lot bad reviews about Kimi to Boku because of this. However, I still think this anime is worth to watch.
Secondly, Cats. I love cats and there are many cats in there. The funny thing is they are all fit into what is going on. I am crazy about them. Cats, cats ^^.
You cannot believe that they are actually friends at first. They don’t seem to get along very well. But if you take notice, you will see they are perfectly to each other. My favorite character is Yuta. He is unique. I love all of his personalities. He is one of the reasons why I keep watching Kimi to Boku, too. Later, I start to love all of them though.
The narrator changes each episode. I love this part. I’m tired to see just one main character thinks and judes for the rest characters. In addition, you feel like you know them better after each episode and sometimes be surprise about who they really are. They are not just the characters on the paper. They are humans who actually live their lives to find out who they are. And they may stuck into some troubles that we may stuck into,too. They are not gonna tell you what to do but at least, you feel much better when you know you are not the only one who are freaking out.
Like what I said before, the story line is simple. You may feel it’s wasting time to watch this crap but hidden behind all these ridiculous stories are something meaningful. Sometimes, there’s nothing hidden. It’s just show how they help each other get back on their feet and that’s what I love about it. Not too much drama, sentimental but you can still move from these stories.
