So is this just a watered-down version of Domestic Girlfriend, then?

Rina Hidaka and Hiro Shimono? I feel like I've seen this pairing before.

I'm kind of surprised they're going with older names, even if they're A-listers, but Rina hasn't been a lead in forever (let alone in a romcom) and it'd be nice to see Shimono the lead in a show with positive buzz again.

The direction for Tomozaki was solid and the script adaption for Komi-san was on-point, so this could turn out pretty fun. The leads' banter already seems on-point.

From what I've read it's basically a more wholesome, romcom, version of Domestic Girlfriend.

There is a bit of Kaguya-sama too, as the leads have a similar "Pride before true feelings" mentality.

Their voices in the trailer made me hope Connie Springer would use one of his blades to cut Ren Yamai's head off. Rolling Eyes

Seems to be more in the Marmalade Boy tradition (that includes ItaKiss and several others)? With Domestic Girlfriend, can't ignore the "love triangle with 2 sisters" thing. It could be said that Domestic Girlfriend was "Kiss X Sis done as serious (soap opera) drama instead of ecchi harem comedy."

I have high hopes for the upcoming A Couple of Cuckoos which (from what we know about them) is a rom-com similar to My Stepmom's Daughter Is My Ex but with a scenario that is nearly opposite in some respects.

The encyclopedia's compare feature lists Boarding School Juliet, DIVE!!, Hensuki, High School Prodigies Have It Easy Even In Another World, Pokémon Generations, Tamako Market, and TWGOK. Don't ask me how many of those have actually had their characters interact.
