Oh the comedy!

I’m glad my friend convinced me to watch Lovely Complex! It’s the most hilarious piece of work since Ouran. Lovely Complex is pure comedy bliss. I never laughed so hard through episode and episodes of anime :p Admittedly Densha Otoko JD made me do that, but that’s JD.

The Osaka-ben is really growing onto me and the XD and expressiveness of the characters crack me up. I’m up to episode 7 at the moment. It seems like the producers fast tracked through Ootani and Koizumi’s 1st year of High school pretty quickly and soon enough they’re in their 2nd year and continuing their comedic All Hanshin-Kyojin comedic act without purposely doing so.

Although LoveCom looks like your typical Shoujo slice of life anime, the main characters make the show so very entertaining. Its one of those shows that You can just sit down and not think about anything and just laugh. heh that’s what I love about anime so much, it has a storyline that’s progressive and interesting yet you don’t have to take it seriously. As I haven’t read the manga I’m not sure if the anime is following the manga entirely, but presumably. For every episode, there’s always a major event or situation that’s typical in the typical Japanese high schooler’s life (eg. spending Christmas with a lovely one, school festival and the haunted house, romantic triangles, Hanabi, School trips, beach trip). Despite the formula style show in terms of sequence of events essentially leading to the Ootani and Risa’s realization of feelings, its the journey that makes the story so interesting and entertaining.

I could not believe how DENSE Ootani was when Risa confessed her true feeling and his obliviousness continued in the subsequent episode. I’m at the point where we’re waiting on how Ootani will do now that he knows The person Risa has fallen for is him.

I think I’m a sucker for Shoujo slice of life animes. As a girl, I can totally relate to Risa’s frustration at the idiot of a guy she likes :p and also related to her general girl issues, eg. finding herself in this world, does it really matter if she’s tall and fall for someone that’s shorter than her, life isn’t perfect after all.

If the anime isn’t conclusive or if there is no second season, I might actually pick up the manga. Despite the low key animation (many stills) the character design is unique and cute. I love it how the characters are always given different and trendy outfits. It just adds to the feel of the slice-of-life show. After all, people in real life don’t have a closet full of exactly the same clothing (eg. in naruto)
