more reviews of anime TV series from the top company in the business,
Koito has just entered high school and dreams of high school romance
like all the books and dramas she has watched, but after meeting and
catching Touko Nanami turning down a confession to a boy, she is
charmed by her beauty, grace, elegance and charm. After joining the
student council to get close to her, she is surprised when Touko
confesses to her that she loves her. Yuu suddenly finds herself in a
secret/forbidden relationship with the school's most popular girl.
But even so ...Yuu is not sure of herself and how she should feel in
Nanami is the most beautiful, kind, sophisticated, and smartest girl
in school, so it comes to Yuu as a shock when Touko tells her she is
in love with her. Touko tells Yuu the reason she loves her is because
she doesn't treat her 'special' like everyone else. And while
everyone see Touko as the 'perfect' girl, none of them sees her as
who she really is. At first, Yuu joins the student council to become
closer to Touko, but she soon learns Touko isn't a 'perfect' person.
Touko lives in the shadow of her deceased elder sister who died a few
years ago and she is living to fulfill 'her' dream. While Yuu was
surprised by Touko's confession, but she doesn't reject her either.
Yuu wants to help Touko live her own life and help her learn to not
hate herself and not just be what everyone else wants her to be, but
as time goes on, Yuu's own feelings for Touko begin grow. How long
can Yuu and Touko keep their secret? Can Yuu truly bloom with Touko?
