Truth to be told, I never considered watching this at all since I thought that it’s gonna be shoujo-ish but for some reason, I give it a shot and I am grateful that I did. It is based on a shoujo manga of the same name but it’s fast becoming one of my favourite.
Here’s the gist of the series:
Mizutani Shizuku is a study-holic who cares for nothing but her grades. She is stoic and rational at all times until she met Yoshida Haru who is a complete opposite of her.
At a glance, one would thought that Haru is the boy raised in the wild. He is constantly involved in fights though he has no ill intentions. That changed when he met Shizuku who somehow managed to tame him in her own ways.
Opposites attract, eh?
After some ups and downs when Haru confessed to Shizuku who turned him down flat, Shizuku finally acknowledged her feelings when she find that she started to slack as a result of Haru occupying her mind as of late. She realises that she likes Haru romantically after all and agreed to go out with him on condition that it doesn’t affect her grades. As expected of a study freak.
It gets more interesting with the appearance of Haru’s former middle school classmate, Yamaken who seemed to be a delinquent himself. He may be a delinquent but when it comes to school grades, he stands on an equal footing with Shizuku. As much as he denied having feelings for Shizuku, he began to notice that Shizuku is constantly in his mind. And when Haru caught the wind of it, he (Haru) gets really jealous and tried his might to prevent them from meeting.
Now, this will definitely get more interesting.
