Unlike many other anime airing this season, Tonikaku Kawaii is an anime that stands firmly atop the romance comedy anime flood. Of course, the main couple needs something unique that sets them apart from all other romantic couples you know. And Tonikaku Kawaii shows this outright. Unlike many romance anime, where it takes forever for the main couple to realize their feelings. Tonikaku Kawaii jumps right into with the sincere representations of modern-day married life in anime.
Synopsis: Nasa Yuzaki has a very peculiar name for which everyone often mocked him. Due to this, he decided to study a lot and become a man that nobody can ridicule. One night while heading back home, he saw a beautiful girl and thought he was fated to meet her. While trying to talk to her, he gets hit by a truck. When he’s about to pass out from his injuries, he quickly wakes up, confessing his love for her. The girl, Tsukasa Tsukuyomi, agrees to become his girlfriend, but only if they get married first, to which he agrees. Thus their happy, romantic, and mysterious married life begins.
Despite the cliched plot and suggestive moments, which, to the surprise, wasn’t that unusual, the story itself has depth and didn’t feel forced. Because of how the anime is done, one may argue quite well that TONIKAWA: Over the Moon For You can get your attention with a single episode. While this would classify as a fluff romance, there is a thread of mystery thrown into the whole thing. ToniKawa is a very lighthearted and sweet watch.
