you have to understand that though they were dating japanese school kids dont get a lot of free time. the commute outside of school also takes up a huge chunk of available time. not to mention school on saturday and extracurricular activities. unless you meant they were not *huggy* *clingy* enough. a proper relationship takes time. they both got kissed, one in the wrong order though that just reinforces the proper order ideal. a 'display' of affection is not the culture norm either.
agreed. altho i wouldn't consider the manga tasteless ecchi. it wasn't really even that ecchi.
it was kinda woven into the story and made it.....well more believable

HAHA! I love this line XD

Well, if people are looking for the usual harem "crap" they should look elsewhere...like LoveRu or *shivers* Kanokon.

This series is more about developing real emotions than the quickie type of thing.

And I am all for "taking things slowly"

I agree with you. However, I wouldn't call other shows as garbage. Obviously, those shows are geared towards providing fan service especially to the male population. However, I really like this series because it can happen in real life. You can learn more about maintaining or starting a relationship on which it is good.

I do believe that some of you guys are switching over to Itazura na Kiss because this series already ended. It has the same atmosphere like this one.

No you arent the only one.. I hate the pairing. They made me not even wanna finish the show actually. Maybe thats too harsh but .. yeah

Actually, I prefer the original pairing too. I wonder what made Kouichi chase Mao instead of Hoshino? I guess that's a twist that I didn't expect.

I do like kouuchi and hoshino.
but the manga mao.....well I know she's a lil...seductressy kinda. but I still liked it alot, not becaquse of that. but...the whole childhood friend thing. ya ya I know it's overused.....but it's sweet

i do agree tho hoshino is my favorite

btw am I the only one who isn't exactly a "fan" of eriko

btw In the manga....does anyone have any raws of like what hoshino looks like? I've only seen Asuka and Mao manga parts and wondering if the Part with hoshino has appeared and/or been scanned yet.
thx
I mean one of the volumes is his outcome with Hoshino right? (i wouldn't know)

can anyone tell me tho like:
i know each volume in kimikiss various heroines is like a different girl.
but is Hoshino ever presented as a "path" in the books and/or the ps2 game?
or even shown...in it lol at all.
Like Hoshino is in...the manga right? lol

I really prefer Kouichi + Hoshino pairing. I was in so much pain from him dumping her for Mao that I never actually finished the series, dropping it at episode 22.

Maybe now that I feel a little less about the characters i can go ahead and finish it, but I felt really bad for Hoshino + soccer girl. Genius girl hardly deserves to be paired up with the soccer boy.

I'll chime in a bit.... that this series didn't appear to kowtow to "little boys in heat" and presented a fairly balanced take on multiple relationships from a variety of perspectives made it a very interesting series. More so, because sometimes the "best" solution wasn't what ended up happening.

Ya I mean I wasn't a huge fan of eriko....i mean she i dunno, just wasn't a fan.
hoshino....man she was my favorite (still wanting to know if she's presented as a possible volume in the manga as a "choice" or in the game)
cause has anyone that's read the manga know if she's even in it? or whats her relation to kouchi in the manga?
or is she just always a girl that he breaks up with even in the manga.


still soccer girl asuka got no love.....i mean i liked her she should've at least had what she wanted for a lil while .

Eriko was just to snobby for me.. I would've much more preferred Asuka than Eriko with him

She is a choice in the game and also she's gonna get her arc/story in the manga. As per the title, "various heroines", each volume of this manga focuses on a different girl Kouichi can eventually end up with.

eriko's situation was much better explained in the manga, and she's much cuter.

Yeah, it looks like she'll be the last one to get her story told.

i figured.
I mean......
Her and Kouchi's relationship seemed to "fit the most"
but Kouchi and Mao.just seemed like they should be together. Altho in the manga mao is a lot different.
Mao's still my favorite out of the girls in both the manga and anime.
Hoshino's story was QQ worthy tho.
I like Eriko alot...but man she was kinda a B%#*h at the beginning tho.....
altho i understand that she was just lonely....

Yushino might not be the last one if you take Megumi into account.

I did really like Asuka's story.
she was one of my favs in the manga: her and Mao that is are prolly my manga favorites.

but.......she didnt really get much attention in the anime. I felt bad for her she was cute but got pwned....in the end.

anyone thinks that the disciplinary girl(forgot her name, dammit) didnt get that much airtime at all? i mean, i like her more than the two frog girls and they basically had screen time every other episodes with those annoying frog of theirs.
