Although I've only seen up to around 13 episodes(still watching) Kao is definitely my favorite.
Maybe its because I always love the idea of loving a childhood friend , maybe because it actually works in anime but never in real life(Experience</3). Shes definitely a wonderful girl with an amazing personality.
I wasn't absolutely sure on whether or not Haruka was at her level also , but the last scene when she was in his bed was the perfect 'sealing of the deal'.
Anyways, I'll keep you guys updated on this as i catch up , will be viewing this thread frequently !

Kaoru isn't a childhood friend. She was just his classmate and friend since middle school, which is probably for about three or four years.

I consider a middle school friend a child hood friend. If they know eachother for that number of years that is still a long time.

She's more a friend rather than 'childhood friend' still though. Not that there's anything wrong with that as the arc showed.

You could think of someone you knew since middle school a childhood friend as you enter uni or the equivalent. Kaoru and Junichi were in their second year of high school, so they wouldn't have known each other for as long as Rihoko and Junichi did, which was likely even before elementary by the sound of it. So from their perspective, they weren't exactly childhood friends, but certainly old friends with respect to everyone else in the series.

The word for childhood friend in Japanese [幼馴染 (osananajimi)] implies friendship from infancy. This is why Rihoko can be considered Junichi's childhood friend and Kaoru cannot, since he hadn't yet met the latter when he was an infant.

Okay but you do realize i used the term childhood friend in my own context and not in the context of the Japanese definition right?
Just curious if you failed or succeeded in realizing that.

To be honest, I didn't even read your post dude. Other people were talking about the childhood friend trope. I wanted to clarify that.

Although the discussion is about Kaoru, I recently find my childhood friend from my college years.
About Kaoru, she's doesn't even know she's in love with Junichi. In anime, she doesn't go out with any guy friend. When Daigo... I mean Umehara... when he asks chocolate from her. She flat out refused.

THIS.

No, seriously. The only childhood friend would be Rihoko (IMO least spectacular)

Then if I'm in my second or third year of college and I had a friend I've known since high school, would she be my childhood friend?

No, a childhood friend is one you've known for nearly your entire life. While a few years is a long time, it's not the same.

Could you give us more information about the end of Kaoru Arc ? There is a "10 years later" epilogue ?

You mean the end where Kaoru is finally encouraged by Jun'ichi to buy a brush and comb her hair for the first time in her life, so her hair actually looks decent?
Yes, that's a great ending... alone finally seeing Kaoru with nice hair after that is well worth the BD.

I love Kaoru, and I'm sorry, I really am, for saying this --- Comparing the two is unwise, but... Kaoru reminds me an awful lot of Sekai Saionji, and for those who know who Sekai is, that isn't looked at as a good thing to most, but for me it is.

I get the feeling that's considered off topic, so I'll say a bit more. Kaoru is my second favorite heroine, and her tomboy nature is a big reason for that.
