Lovely Complex is a romantic comedy shōjo manga by Aya Nakahara. Recently Crunchyroll declared that it will start streaming the Lovely Complex anime on Tuesday at 6:00 p.m. EST.

Lovely Complex anime will be available for streamers in the United States, Canada, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Central America, and South America including the Caribbean. (The anime is now available for streaming on Crunchyroll).

The story has been described as: “Koizumi’s just started high school, and she’s got a little problem: for a girl, she’s super tall! Meanwhile, her classmate Otani’s got a big problem: he’s virtually a midget, but still wants to join the basketball team. Written off as a bickering comedy duo by their teachers and classmates, the pair can’t decide who’s less likely to find love before graduating and ultimately bet each other on who’ll actually land a mate.

As the month’s progress, Koizumi starts seeing Otani in a new light: sure he’s fun to hang out with and shares her love of all things Sea Monk, but maybe – just maybe – they might end up being more than friends, despite the fact that they’ll never literally see eye to eye.

Of course, nothing is ever as easy as it seems, and when Koizumi finally works up the nerve to confess her love, Otani has to go and turn her down flat. Can the two of them ever overcome their Lovely Complex?”

The manga was distributed by Shueisha in Bessatsu Margaret from 2001 to 2006 and gathered in 17 tankōbon volumes.
