This is a story about Kazunari Usa, calm and nice boy who will start living alone because his parents are working in a different area. He was excited about starting to live in a Kawai complex boarding house, since he thought he will finally lead a calm and “boring” life, completely different from the life while he was having with his parents. Yet, what he didn’t expect was to find a house full of eccentric tenants 🙂
The people that live in Kawai complex are really different from Usa. Shirosaki (Usa’s roommate), is a blond guy with pony tail, a huge masochist and a bit of a pervert. Nikishino Mayumi is an office lady with huge boobs, almost an alcoholic and the oldest of them all. She seems to dislike seeing other people happy and tries to mess with other people’s happiness.
Watanabe Sayaka is a college student who’s cute and looks innocent yet she’s not like that at all (this is how she looks like when she doesn’t like what’s going on 🙂 )
And last, Kawai Ritsu is a really cute and shy bookworm, Usa’s senpai and the main reason he stayed there. She reads all the time, even when she’s walking towards school or home.
There’s also Kawai Sumiko, a manager of Kawai complex, a nice and cheerful old lady that can be really scary when she thinks that someone isn’t behaving well and according to the rules.
I really enjoyed watching this anime. I enjoyed watching Usa, who’s desperately trying to get closer to Ritsu, who’s such a nice person, who cares and helps everyone and has an amazing ability to get along with all types of people. He’s funny and his reactions are funny, especially when he get teased by Mayumi and Sayaka. He is easily pleased and gets happy with the smallest nice things that happen to him.
Ritsu is such a cute girl, a bit misunderstood, especially when people think that she’s boring and likes to be alone. She really enjoys reading and it’s amazing to see how she gets into what interests her and everything else doesn’t seem to exist. Usa will try hard to get close to her and, even though sometimes it seems to him that the distance between them is getting bigger instead of smaller, in the end I think he really got to know her and understand her well.
Shirosaki is considered a pervert and a masochist, yet he shows such a nice and a bit unexpected side of him when she tries to please a kid called Chinatsu that came to visit their complex when she felt alone because she was in a fight with her friends. He can build such great things and has good skills in dealing with children.
The quarrels between Mayumi and Sayaka never get old. It’s so funny to see how they insult/tease each other and the rest of the tenants. Sayaka also seduces men like it’s some kind of sport for her and Mayumi loves to “ruin” other people’s happiness although I don’t think she’s a mean or a bad person. Her sarcasm and the way of teasing are hilarious.
I think it’s an interesting and funny anime to watch. It reminded me, in a way, of Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo, although it wasn’t as funny. Still, it’s a nice watch.
