Kimi to Boku is my Favorite Fall 2011 series!! It's a really sweet and laid-back series and I can't help but fall in love with it!
Story: (10/10) – Awesome
The story revolves around four teens - the good-looking twins Asaba Yuuta and Yuuki, the effeminate Matsuoka Shun, and the class head Tsukahara Kaname who have known each other since kindergarten. While they are not necessarily good or bad friends, they continue to hang out well into high school. The half-Japanese transfer student Tachibana Chizuru joins the circle of friends in this comedy about the everyday life of adolescence.
What I really like about Kimi to Boku is that the story is simple, laid back, and very easy to relate to. It's a slice of life that revolves around the theme of growing up and friendships. Through the happenings around them, the various protagonists reminisce the past and their experiences from more than 10 years ago which still have strong influences on what is happening "now" in their lives.
Character: (10/10) – Awesome
All the boys (yes.. even Noisy Chizuru) are so lovable!! I love their personalities and their interactions with one another!
In each episode, we learn a little about the boys through the happenings now and their past. Though some of the happenings and flashbacks may seem insignificant or unimportant, they hold precious place in their hearts and eventually, in my heart too. Some of their flashbacks remind me of my kindergarten days and it gives a feeling of nostalgia.
Yuuki - He's the younger one of the twins. He's the less talkative but more playful one. He has a really cool personality too.
Yuuta - He's the elder one of the twins and he's also the most mature out of the 5 boys. He's also really caring and sensitive.
Kaname - He's such a cute Tsundere. I love his reactions to the boys' provocations (in particular, Yuuki's! ^^)
Shun - I like him much better in his short hair. He totally looks like a girl with long hair.
Chizuru - He's very cute when he's young! Now, he's noisy and irritating at most of the times but he can be very caring at times too (especially towards the girl he likes -.^).
Art/Animation: (9/10) – Very Good
I love the art and character designs. It's simple and beautiful. I love the different illustrations in the Ending theme sequence (really melts my heart!).
Music: (10/10) – Awesome
Very nice choice of Opening and Ending themes. I especially like the Ending theme and its sequence (nice illustrations!!). I love the background music played during some scenes too!
Enjoyment: (10/10) – Awesome
Many say that Kimi to Boku is a little slow in pace, but I personally don't think so. I find the pacing perfect for a mellow and simple series like Kimi to Boku. I enjoy this series thoroughly and am looking forward to Season 2!!
Overall: (9/10) – Very Good
This is a must see for all who likes slice of life series!
