BTW For everyone that found epi 1 to be boring/cliché/predictable...think again!

Apparently, the Itazura na Kiss manga was one of the first shoujo romances. In fact, it heavily influenced the romantic plots of later manga (Marmalade Boy, Hana Yori Dango and Fruits Basket come to mind). Thus, it has been dubbed "the bible of romance."

So if you think you've seen this all before...you're right! But it's important to remember that Itazura na Kiss came first.

Yet... I'm watching it after those other ones, making this one seem boring. In other words, it turned into an anime too late? Unfortunate for it, huh...

Yes it is very unfortunate!
Oh well, Itazura deserves to be animated. Better to be animated late than to not be animated at all!

Here's an image from the manga for anyone who is interested:

I saw the Taiwan drama "It Started with a Kiss," which was the same story, I guess based on the manga. There's also an Itazura na Kiss Japanese drama.

I think I'm gonna stick this one out if only to see what they do with the story since the manga never finished. I just read the last volume, and it ended on a damn big cliffhanger

well, she had the advantage that the guy is not really interested on women, so she is pretty safe about getting the guy. I already feel sorry for the guy that is after her.

I guess many people here are sadly non-shoujo fans. Me, on the other hand, is a huge shoujo fan and I remember watching the Taiwan version of it. It is funny and amusing, and I fully enjoy the series.

I also made a quick summary and screenshots for Episode 1.

p/s: Mizuki Nana's voice = delicious.

I remember watching the Japanese live action drama only the first episode though didn't like it the main male character wasn't likable and the main girl came out as if she was mentally challenge swear to god she was dumb as hell making me think something was wrong with her... guess it was the actress fault for portraying her as that. Is it the same in the manga though? Is the girl rather dumb?

Yes.

I finished reading volumes 10-23 this morning (was working my way backwards), and it really pissed me off. The characters' personalities are seriously dated. I don't think I can keep up with this anime unless they modernize them.

That's right. The Taiwan TV drama was adapted from the manga. It was a huge hit... one of the most popular Chinese-language Drama in quite a while...

Although this works might have been turned into anime a little bit too late, but a classic is still a classic, no matter what. Let's sit down and enjoy it.

FYI, the author has already died. And yes, the series pre-dates many shojo series which we know. Don't expect anything ground-breaking from this series. It's a history lesson.

I enjoyed it. LovCom type feel to it, which is a good thing, IMO. I look forward to seeing where it goes. I need at least one comedic romance every season. ^^

Go Kin-chan! You're 10x more GAR than the stupid Nao guy lol. I really wished he beat the living shit out of that prick. XD

That said, I think it should be obvious that they're setting up Naoki. Sooner or later we're going to have a revelation about his character where we're supposed to jump the fence to his side lol. Predictable? Maybe, but so far it's enjoyable.

All in all, a pleasant surprise. When the ED came up, I was like, that's it? I want more!

Compare that to my first dabblings with the manga, in which I practically drudged through the first few chapters (I think the first volume) before eventually dropping it. I really do think that the VAs and the music made it much more bearable this time around. Props to the animation studio, who admittedly I have no clue as to their resume lol.


Thanks again to m.3.3.w and baka-wolf. So far, 5 out of 5 finished series projects are my kind of anime, with both offerings this season I know so far are my cup of tea as well. Probably my favourite active group, if they keep at this rate.
