    Considered a genius due to having the highest grades in the country, Miyuki Shirogane leads the prestigious Shuchiin Academy's student council as its president, working alongside the beautiful and wealthy vice president Kaguya Shinomiya. The two are often regarded as the perfect couple by students despite them not being in any sort of romantic relationship.

    However, the truth is that after spending so much time together, the two have developed feelings for one another; unfortunately, neither is willing to confess, as doing so would be a sign of weakness. With their pride as elite students on the line, Miyuki and Kaguya embark on a quest to do whatever is necessary to get a confession out of the other. Through their daily antics, the battle of love begins!

    Episode 1

    Battle of the brains.

    That was a pretty humorous take on the romance as Miyuki and Kaguya are in love with each other, but won't admit it, which is the point of this show as they are trying humorous ways of not confessing seeing this as a war. I especially like that whole bento part where Miyuki gets some pretty fancy stuff for lunch, all while Miyuki goes totally overboard trying to impress him with her extravagant lunch. And I like how the narrator is making things even funnier with his commentary. Great start so far.

    So like always, trial period rules, but after laughing so hard in the first episode, it shouldn't be long before I call it in.

      Re: Episode 1

      Agreed. This was a fun episode, and I think breaking this down into segments is the right way to go about it. Of course, thinking this through, when (if) they were to get into a relationship, imagine how they would take on sex, ROFLMAO!
      My Avatar: The lovely Mikuru Asahina from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. Why do I stick with her in a world of constantly changing avatars? Because:
      1) Her friendly, playful attitude in that picture, (despite being forced unwillingly into cosplay), reflects my own friendly, playful personality;
      2) Mikuru-chan is an excellent combo of smoking hot and super sweet cuteness; and
      3) It makes it easiier for me to find my own posts in threads.

        Re: Episode 1

        I'm definitely looking forward to seeing what this series has in store. There's a lot of potential even beyond just the comedic value, which is already very strong. The romance is the basis of the jokes for now, but we get enough of the true feelings of the characters that they become adorable in their own ridiculous ways and we can't help but root for them. And I do actually like the idea that these kids are too proud to admit their feelings, as they feel like they'd be admitting defeat.
