What do you do when the person you are in love with rejects you?

Move in to their house of course!!

Kotoko from Class F is desperately in love with Naoki from Class A, the smartest and cutest boy in school. One day Kotoko confesses to Naoki and Naoki rejects her claiming he couldn't possibly love someone who wasn't smart. 

Is this the end of Kotoko's love battle??      Hell no!

After a minor earthquake destroys her house, they move in with her father's best friend. As it turns out, Fate has decided to help Kotoko because her father's best friend has a son, Naoki.

No one said love was easy, and Kotoko finds it even more difficult to get along with her crush, frequently causing problems for him.

Naoki at first resents Kotoko for causing so many problems in his life, but eventually warms up to her and comes to love her as they spend more time together. He is very aloof and often mean to Kotoko, but secretly enjoys teasing her.

As well as the main love story plot, each character has a subplot or personal drama to overcome. Naoki's main issue is what to do with his life. He wants to do something meaningful and challenging and with Kotoko's guidance decides to become a doctor. She also struggles with her one sided love and career choices and ultimately decides to become a nurse: the perfect team.

A great anime full of lovely romantic scenes and a good dose of comedy.

 I especially love Naoki's super enthusiastic matchmaking mother!!
