This is largely a pretty by-the-numbers romance title involving several teens coming together to resolve whatever romantic developments they have going on in their lives, with the gimmick in this one having the teens meeting each other at a local convenience store. Convenience Store Boyfriends doesn't really do much to have things in its romance developments feel engaging or have any meat to them, with the characters largely being pretty archetypal to a good degree. In short, a rather underwhelming and forgettable series.

(One episode watched):

Well, I guess the reason why I never became particularly interested or engaged in the developing romances here is because nothing unusual ever happened. These were typical teenagers doing typical things, without anybody having anything odd or noteworthy about themself. Extremely slice-of-life. No serious conflicts between any two people ever turned up, and I didn't feel that I got to know anybody well enough to care how their love life would work out. I wondered at one point if the whole show was meant as a commercial for convenience stores, because nothing much was happening otherwise. It was kind of boring, actually. It looks like there will be a small army of characters in this story, but without anybody having anything that is in any way extraordinary about themselves that seems like a liability--just more shallow characters I would need to keep track of. In short, the vast majority of romances that take place in the world are dull, and what I want to hear about are the unusual ones.
