Koikimo It's Disgusting to Call This Love is taking a new turn on romantic comedy anime series where it seems to beg the question of is love really like that. Studio Nomad sheds more light on this with the anime adaptation, which is about to have its Episode 8 so set the release date and time on your countdown and find some answers.
With a 12-episode run through this anime season in a single-cour, Koikimo sires an anime adaptation from the pages of the Japanese josei manga series of the same name by Mogusu published in Ichijinsha's Comic POOL digital manga magazine since 2015 with seven tankōbon volumes compiled.
Ichika Arima is just like any other girl in high school and she gets turned off on some things like how Ryō Amakusa, the brother of her friend Rio, asked her for a kiss and a date on the very first day they met. Ryō is known to be a womanizer, a highly eligible bachelor making other girls melt with his smirk, but when he gets introduced to Ichika, everything changed in him, he seems to have found the one.

In Koikimo Episode 7, Love for Your Fave, we see Kai, who is buying the first limited edition of Foreward World on the very same day of its release. She sees Ryō and tried to avoid him as she recalled the warning of Rio about him. This frustrated her. What’s more frustrating is that there is one book left on the shelf and both Ryō and Kai reached for it, their hands overlapped.
At the same time, Arie got a new book of the same title in another store. She met Ichika there, and both of them noticed that the characters that were recommended were the same. Arie realizes something on her way home and she was thinking about Ryō.
