Well, then look no further coz this anime is definitely for you.
When a high school boy moves alone in to a complex after his parents traveled for work; his only wish is to live out his high school days in peace and enjoys his life maybe with a cute girlfriend away from chaos and craziness. However, Usa Kazunari‘s life was flipped upside down ever since he moved to the Kawai Complex as he met the craziest and most awkward people in his life. His first instinct was -of course- to run the heck out of that crazy house but as he was leaving he met a beautiful girl named Kawai Ritsu who happens to be his senior in high school who turns out to be the granddaughter of the owner’s brother and she also is staying in that complex. So, “naturally” Usa-kun decides to stay as well. And we get to watch and enjoy the funny developments in the relationships between all the characters.
To be honest when I watched this anime; i had absolutely no idea what it’s about whatsoever. I actually thought it was a romance drama kind of anime which made me delay watching it until a couple of days ago and that is when I realized that this anime is one of the craziest and funniest anime I have ever watched.
Well, allow me introduce to you the residents of the Kawai Complex:
1- Usa Kazunari
Usa-kun the hero of this story.. he truly is a hero for living and surviving in that crazy house XD
He is just a normal highschool student who wanted to live on his own when his family had to travel for work and his only wish was to live in peace and fall in love with a cute girl who resembles a senpai he saw in the school library.
He moved into the Kawai complex thinking that he will be living on his own but to his surprise there was a roommate he didn’t know about; his name is Shiro… and oh by the way .. Shiro is actually a Masochist pervert.. don’t worry I will talk about him later XD
Anyway, once Usa-kun realized the situation he was in he decided to get the heck out of that place but Shiro and Sumiko-san (the landlord) were trying to convince him to stay. Of course -understandably- he refused to stay whatsoever and while he was leaving he opened the door to see the senpai he likes standing outside right infornt of him; that’s when Sumiko-san introduced her to him as her brother’s granddaughter Kawai Ritsu who is a resident in the Kawai Complex.
Of course, as a teenage boy controlled by hormones.. I mean love.. he deicded to stay in that complex and accept the fact that Shiro will be his roommate.
As he was speaking to Ritsu who was totally ignoring him while she was walking to her room she suddenly stopped and pointed a wooden katana in his face telling him that he can’t walk with her any longer because she entered the “girls area” that is restricted to any male. Therefore, if he stepped across the line she or any other female resident is entitled to beat the crap out of him with the weapons that happen to be laying around the hallway leading to the girls rooms XD
And this where his story in the Kawai comlex begin.
2- Kawai Ritsu
Ri-chan is a 2nd year highschool student. As mentioned above; she is the granddaughter of the landlord’s brother. She’s cute, sweet, and usually described as a loner. She doesn’t have any friends and always says that she doesn’t mind being alone. She loves reading and often forgets herself once she starts to read. The books she reads usually affect her mood greatly as she gets completely lost and absorbed by them both emotoinally and mentally.
She may not have friends which makes those around her worry about her but she often says that she is not bothered by it cause she has her books and she likes being left alone. However, it becomes clear that she has trouble with expressing her feelings and prefers to keep everything bottled up inside her.
Of course, Usa-kun keeps trying diligently and desperately to approach her and get closer to her however and whenever he can. He satrted reading more just to get closer to her.
Well, as you can see Mayumi-san is a very beautiful sexy woman and she lives in the Kawai complex; she likes to show off her body shamelessly. Poor Mayumi-san keeps dating jerks and assholes who don’t appreciate her sweet qualities and whenever one of her pathetic relationships end she becomes miserable and starts sulking, drinking heavily, and cursing every happy couple she lays her eyes on XD
Unfortunately for Usa-kun who she calls “king of virgins”, she reflects her personal issues on him and ruins his plans whenever he tries to get a step closer to Ri-chan she does something that pulls him a 100 steps back. Yes, she’s a bitter woman who will do her best to make that boy as miserable as she is, just to make herself feel better XD but that doesn’t mean that she is completely evil .. I mean she can be really nice and sweet if she’s in the mood ❤
Long story short, you can’t not love her; she’s one of the funniest characters in the anime and whenever she’s involved you can’t stop laughing either over her failing relationships or over her funny mean attempts to destroy Usa-kun’s teen spirit XD
Of course, if you think she’s evil or mean then wait till you see her nemesis who is residing in the Kawai complex too. This nemesis of hers is none other than the pretentious college student named Sayaka-chan who keeps picking on her whenever she can. Keep reading .. Sayaka-chan is next XD
No no no, don’t you be fooled by her innocent look. She is a terrible terrible girl who likes to play with men’s feelings and lead them on just to enjoy destroying them in the end. Of course, she enjoys making fun of Mayumi-san’s bad taste in men and keeps picking on her. That is not all; sometimes she hits on Mayumi-san and touches her inappropriately saying that she loves her “full” body which makes Mayumi panic while trying to protect herself against Sayaka’s sexual harassments XD
Sayaka is a manipulative girl who enjoys messing with everyone, anyone really. She loves hurting others feelings while acting all cute and innocent which drives Mayumi crazy sometimes hahaha.
Of course, Mayumi is not the type to take crap from people silently; she happily fires a barrage of insults to Sayaka whenever she has the chance specifically about Sayaka’s “fake face” literally, because she uses tooooo much make up 😀
She is a funny character and her interactions with Mayumi are so funny. They understand each other very well and have a bitter sweet relationship, I think they’re more frenemies than enemies hahaha XD
Sometimes Sayaka and Mayumi gang up against Usa-kun and torture him mentally.. I love them both 😀
AKA Shiro. He is Usa-kun’s roommate and nothing seperates their rooms but a thin curtain which Shiro usually removes to “visit” Usa-kun.
He -as I previously mentioned- is a total masochistic pervert who loves it when people insult him or treat him badly. Actually, he prefers to be hit or abused either mentally or physically and gets jealous whenever Mayumi or Sayaka abuse Usa-kun XD
Usually, he is caught and brought back to the complex with a police escort because he suspiciously keeps hanging around schools or school girls in trains.
Okay, he may be a pervert but according to Sumiko-san, he is completely harmless. Actually, Sumiko-san usually insults him just to be nice to him… err.. well umm you know what I mean hahaha 😀
But, really he is harmless, everyone in the complex abuses him and insults him and he doesn’t mind.. actually he loves it and appreciates it.. generally he is really a nice guy.. well, except for the fact that he’s a masochist of course hahaha.
6- Kawai Sumiko
Sumiko-san is the landlord of Kawai complex and she is the one handling all the chaos and craziness in the complex, trying not to let it get too out of control. She is not the owner of the complex; her niece is. But she is the landlord upon the request of the owner.
She is a sweet old lady who loves all her residents and all her residents love her too. She is more of a mother figure to them and knows a lot about them all, like their favorite foods for instance. Whenever one of them is sad, she tries to make them feel better in her own special way and whenever someone gets too out of control she knows how to “calm” them down in her own special way. Of course, her “special way” differs from a resident to another.
This anime is one of the funniest anime I have ever watched and I enjoyed every episode so much. All the characters are lovable and the relationships between them all are so sweet, weird and really funny.
I really enjoyed and laughed so hard.. sometimes too damn hard I couldn’t breath ❤ 😀
Well, it could get a bit too “adult” so I recommend this anime to all anime fans over 16 -18 Years Old ^^
Here are some screenshots from different eps of the anime ❤
BTW, I don’t own all the GIFs.
Thank you for reading and I really hope you enjoyed my review of this really funny anime.
