My opinion on this guy......He's full of win. His personality is very likable. So far we know he thinks and expresses honestly. He can be bold at times, but that's very admirable. To make things better, we get to see him as a character(different sides yet same package). Meaning, we'll learn something new with him as each arc passes. So I'll be rooting for Junichi to do his thing.

Personally, I'm rooting for more Junichi x closet action, but hey, I'll take what I can get.

I mean, how will we really get to know him if he's always energetic and happy and pervy?
Wishing for depressed moe~

Real to life teenager. Thats the highest praise you can give. He may be a bit bold. But, thats , like said before , to be admired. I'm rooting for him.

Y'know, I was hoping for Junichi to be voiced by Jun Fukuyama, since he's famous for voicing Takaaki Kouno and not winning any of the girls despite all the anime episodes and OVAs made for To Heart 2. Since I like the combination of Jun Fukuyama and Shizuka Itou (in To Heart 2 and XXXholic), it would have been nice to see them play a couple who get together in the end, something that has not been the case for either of those two series.

Reminds me of myself when I was a teenager. D:

I'll be very interested in seeing how Junichi evolves over the course of the arcs. The girls will obviously be different - but how different will Junichi be? I assume they'll all draw something different from his personality, but througout he needs to behave as if he's the same kid for this to be realistic. It's a tough balancing act for the production team.

As for the first act, I liked Junichi a lot. At first I was suspicious he was a stereotypical male lead, and a bit mopey - but that quickly changed. While Haruka was both older and operating at a much higher social status, he wss the agressor in their relationship - which he had to do while still being the "puppy" that she found irresistible. Very clever lad, Junichi, for the way he pulled that off.

GundamZZ 2010-08-08 20:07

He must be also be good looking enough. If any guy tries Junichi's stunt in real life, his reputation may be ruined. Typical girl may thinks he's a pervert.

Well, it's the inside joke of his character: hentai shinshi (perverted gentleman).

jorez 2010-08-08 20:40

I'm displeased with his voice. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's just not the time to do these ass voices. The character is good, although he likes to kiss in really weird places...

sgwc 2010-08-09 05:15

Until ep 6, I consider Junichi as someone who react differently towards 3 brackets of girls.

bracket 1, Senpai or dignified people [Haruka & Tsukasa]:
Junichi will act kinda shy. It is like he aims for Haruka/Tsukasa but somehow maintain a set of principles as to not piss Haruka/Tsukasa off. Often help Haruka/Tsukasa in their pleads or chores.

bracket 2, classmate or girls of the same age [Kaoru & Rihoko]:
Friendly and likes to tease Kaoru and Rihoko a lot with nasty remarks.

bracket 3, little sister [Miya] or kouhais [Sae & Ai]
He cherishes or adores them like a brother would. Example would be in ep 2 where Miya and Haruka met for the 2nd time. Miya runs away and Junichi chase after her instead of staying with Haruka. With Ai and Sae, Junichi will lead them in their relationship [mostly with Sae].

Please don't take this post as a fact. It's just based from my observation from ep 1 to ep 6 plus the 3 ongoing mangas.

Suzuku 2010-08-09 20:40

^ I agree with this to an extent. I think he's going to be a bit different in every arc depending on the character archetype of the girls. For instance, in the Haruka arc, he acted like a love sick puppy who would follow whatever orders his master gave him due to Haruka being the "Admirable senpai" archetype. Now in this Kaoru arc, he's acting more loose and relaxed since Kaoru and he are on equal footing, being middle school "bad" friends and whatnot. IMO Sae's arc will probably be the most interesting one in terms of Junichi's character since ideally he would take more of a leadership position than in any of the other arcs due to her being a shy kouhai (Ai is a bit too outspoken lol).

Divini 2010-08-10 01:42

I like this guy because he keeps it real... he's not wimpy nor overly brave, he knows how to have fun and mess around with friends, gets shy around girls he admires, and has perverted thoughts like most guys his age would.

It makes a male viewer who's gone through high school life to relate to him very well.

grandchaosSR 2010-09-24 09:52

Junichi is the man!!!

Finally!!! We have a male anime lead that is not emo or a bumbling idiot and actually have the balls to talk to a girl.

You're either trolling or not watching the same show everyone else is watching. I'm gonna put good money on the former of those two possibilities here.

BetoJR 2010-09-24 10:13

He is not wrong, tho. The only rendition of him that I particularly disliked was during Sae's arc.

Gault 2010-09-24 10:18

He's a Douchebag but you can't help but love him

Thats How I would describe him

MeoTwister5 2010-09-24 10:22

This thread might actually be rather hard to have discussions in because, as the first three arcs have shown, the Junichi in each is essentially a different character from his other iterations, which makes discussion of a singular consistent "Junichi" rather... difficult?

BetoJR 2010-09-24 10:24

I'd say impossible.

Nonetheless, I only disliked him over time in Sae's arc. The Junichi of the first two arcs was a very nice fellow, indeed.

DJLowrider 2010-09-24 10:24

I'll concede the part about being able to talk to girls, but let's break the other two points down.

Emo - He's still obsessing over being stood up on a date two years ago. He turned his closet into a second bedroom/planetarium for himself that he crawls into to hide, which he did in the very first episode of the series. Pretty textbook emo behavior.

Bumbling idiot - Seriously, are you guys watching the same series? In Haruka's arc and Sae's arc he was a consummate tool. His initial interactions with Ai were due to him being fairly foolish as well.

All this said, Junichi does redeem himself (usually) towards the end of the story arcs and mans up decently well. But claiming he's not emo or a bumbling idiot is a gross mis-characterization.

MeoTwister5 2010-09-24 10:27

I guess he's likable because he IS a bumbling idiot? Which is ironically how every male starts out towards girls in high school anyway.

At least when he isn't a TOTAL bumbling idiot (and perverted).
