Boys Be

Elthar pointed me at Boys Be a few weeks ago saying that he thought I might like it. I downloaded the first few and finally got around to watching it recently. Today I got through watching episode 8 and I have to say I really like this show. It's primarily about these three guys and their relationships, though primarily focuses on Kanzaki Kyoichi (or at least seems to at this point). I think what I found the most interesting from this is that they seemed to really get a lot of the whole high school guy experience, the good and the bad. The characters are far from perfect, they screw up left and right. The whole show just feels very real. This is one of those shows that I'd love to see licensed, but I'm really not sure if it would be (which means someone will announce it soon). I definitely recommend giving it a look.

Cool! Glad you're enjoying it. I very much liked the atmosphere and pacing of the first episode; haven't had a chance to watch more yet, so I'm encouraged to hear that it holds up in further episodes.

Boys Be is good! I like the fact that it's "relationship" anime from the guys' viewpoint. It's been a while since I've seen it, but I remember my fave was the guy who had the pocket computer which had all the stats of the girls.

Although the baseball player had a great episode about his relationship though.
