An awesome romance anime series I now love
5 March 2016 | by ja_kitty_71See all my reviews

Here is another awesome anime series, I now love. With romance and a slice of comedy, this series "Uta Koi" is based a historical manga written and illustrated by Kei Sugita; which in turn interprets romantic poems from an anthology know as "Ogura Hyakunin Isshu." You know, I really hate Saadakira. I didn't understand why such a brutal brat could hate a girl like Yasuko for no dang reason...Ohh! "love" and "hate" are such strong words to me.

After watching the first five episodes, it was hard to choose which of the couples shown in the series I love the best. So I choose Yukihara and his wife Hiroko from episode one. I just thought the poem linked to them is sweet: "Though I may leave for Mt. Inaba, famous for the pines covering its peak, if I hear you pine for me I'll come straight home to you." I also love Ko no Naishi and Michitaka from episode seven too. So overall as a hopeless romantic (and a poem lover), I really love this series.
