Synopsis

Everybody in school knows the very tall Risa Koizumi and extremely short Atsushi Otani – their constant bickering is basically comic relief for everyone else in class. But things between them take a turn during the Christmas of their freshman year, when Otani comforts Risa during a rough moment. Otani is too dense to notice, but by the time their Sophomore year cultural festival rolls around, Risa is ready to confess love! Will these two manage to get together by the time they graduate?

Notes[]

  • The dub for this anime received a lot of controversy when Brendan Blaber, the translator for this anime along with Marissa Lenti, wrote on social media that he and fellow writer Marissa Lenti hated the original show, criticized its writing and voice acting, and changed the script and character personalities in an attempt to make the show watchable. He also stated they re-wrote transphobic parts of the show. Due to this, Discotek and Sound Cadence Studios would later fire him and Blaber's said changes didn't even appear on this anime at all.
