Anime Review: Itsudatte Bokura no Koi wa 10 Centi Datta & Two Movies
You've got Itsudatte Bokura no Koi wa 10 Centi Datta (Our love has always been 10 centimeters apart) with 6 episodes of 25m each and focus on Miou & Haruki. Then you have Zutto Mae kara Suki deshita.: Kokuhaku Jikkou Iinkai (HoneyWorks: I've Liked You Since Long Ago) is a movie with 1h that focus on Natsuki & Setoguchi (There is also an interesting small anime called Zutto Mae kara Suki deshita.: Kokuhaku Jikkou Iinkai - Kinyoubi no Ohayou) and the last one is Suki ni Naru Sono Shunkan wo.: Kokuhaku Jikkou Iinkai (Honeyworks: The Moment You Fall in Love) follows Hina, Kotarou, and Koyuki.
This show was made by two companies (Qualia Animation & Layduce) and both these shows are on their top rating with ratings above 8 so that's a good sign for a romance. That's the reason I start watching it and I was really impressed with it.
I know there is a connection between these anime and the band HoneyWork.
Now about the anime.. a LOT of characters. I will put here a really interesting jpg with all the characters and their connections (love or not). It's very mature and nothing cliche like other anime out there (including Just Because or Tamako Market or others I've seen).
Under 4h all stories connected it was very interesting and really worth watching. Overall I would give 8 stars without any doubt. BUT I must point out if you watch only the movies you will not enjoy it that much because there was almost no time for one to build an attachment to the main characters and feel anything for anyone.
This is how school romance anime should be. I hope to see more about other characters maybe?
About the art? It's great. Since it was not a full length anime they focus a lot on animation and art style. Now lets start about those music. Damn good. They were all made by the same company (HoneyWorks) and they tell love stories... This is a excellent romance story. There is no ecchi in it and the characters are all very different.
One interesting thought is that althought one of the stories they love one another but can't really tell the other, while in the other story (movie) it's about unrequited love while the third one is about love conquering all barriers and about what's more important (love or career) and about priorities...
