Itsudatte Bokura no Koi wa 10 cm Datta. | First Impressions

NUMBER 4! Now that is a world record for me, wowowowow. Today I shall be sharing my views on the first episode of Itsudatte Bokura no Koi wa 10 cm Datta. Which by the way is in the genres ComedyDramaRomance, and School.

Something about it just really appeals to me, I don’t know why. For starters, this Anime is actually extremely short, 6 episodes long, in fact. Why is it so short? Good question, I do not know the answer. Given that this Anime is 6 episodes less compared to a normal 12 episode Anime, you’d expect less time for character development and overall time for the Anime to tell its story. So in that regard, I am looking forward to seeing how everything plays out.

The art of the Anime is something I really liked. The characters are very refined and are drawn in a way that’s very similar to Nagi no Asukara. If you pay even closer attention, you’ll notice that the linework of the characters is not done in black, but it brown. It isn’t something you’ll notice at first but if you compare this Anime to another you’ll know what I mean. Since the characters are lined in brown, they really blend well with their surroundings. To me, it made them feel a lot livelier for some reason.

Right away you’re presented with the main characters Miou Aida and Haruki Serizawa. Miou is very reserved and loves art class, while Haruki is the center of attention and his in love with movie production. Although the backstory between the two is very brief, it does tell you how they meet each other. They met while they were both staring at a cherry blossom on their high school campus during what was their first year. Fast forward to now, the timeline is that they’re now in their final year at the high school and only just then do they start noticing something more – I’ll leave it at that.

What really sold me on this Anime was how the first episode ended, it made me want to watch more and it’s something I’ll definitely do. Considering this Anime is only 6 episodes long, it shouldn’t take too long.
