It is the year 1999: a year of transience, of endings and beginnings. Few else understand this better than the group of friends about to undertake a new high school year. There is Kyoichi and Chiharu, two best friends who are inevitably drawn to each other; Yoshihiko, a sports star who finds the woman to inspire and guide him; Aki, a dreamy-eyed full-fledged romantic in love with her ex; Makoto, a pervert and self-proclaimed ladies' man and Yumi, the sharp-tongued but kind-hearted friend who helps him out. As the new millennium approaches, each of the gang walks the age-old up-and-down road of relationships in their own way. What will became of them all, especially Kyoichi and Chiharu?Written by

I am a newcomer to the world of anime so I don't really care about the quality of the drawings so thats on of the reasons this is a ten. The other, this show provides a rare glimpse of reality when it comes to romances in anime. The story simply tells the tale of a group of high school juniors who are all taking the steps towards their first real relationship. You won't find any damsels in destress situations, no generic high school love triangles. Its simply the story of how relationships start as friends, move on to something a little more and finally being bf and gf. A great series for people who like realism and, yes sappiness, in their romantic anime.
