To me, the story was unique. While I do agree that it did seem a bit episodic, those episodes were rather interesting. I get the feeling that there was quite a bit more that could have been done, and may have been done with the Manga, but it definately was a "page turner". The main plot had a fantastic number of twists and turns, for a ride that I would recommend.
Art/Sound: Nothing that really stands out. Perhaps its more in the realistic and dated drawing style, but not too old.
Character: There were a decent number of characters. The story didn't delve too much into the non primary characters. It felt like there was a prequel that explained all of the relationships in the past.
Enjoyment: The only way I can describe this is that it is a page turner. I think that great anime, are one that can make you want to keep on watching after the first episode. I enjoyed the medical mysteries; the little romance that they had, and the overall pace. read more

Story: While stereotypical, it was an amusing romp. The individual episodes go fairly quickly and keep it at a decent pace. Some of the stuff comes from left field, which makes it a bit fun. There is comedy, romance, and good hearted fun.
Art/Sound: It's drawn in a "modern" style, not 90's or large eyes. The Ecchi is fairly tame, and its not all little girl.
Character: The interaction between the characters was pretty amusing. Standouts include the main girl herself, and her Pappa/Mamma guardians slash researchers.
Why I would recommend watching it: You can finsh this off easily on a weekday, there aren't that many boring spots as it goes fairly quickly. It's a refreshing adventure that you can put in between other anime's. read more

Ah the various goals of these romantic comedies. Is it for the guy to get the girl(s) or for them to graduate and have life lessons, etc... It is a harem comedy, so the guy has to choose between a few beautiful girls. It is a high school set, so you move through the school season.
For me personally, the Journey is entertaining. The humor stands out. For example, they have a little chick (baby chicken) that is one of the characters, and acts like a mentor. It also has the ability to kick ass. For the most part the story is realistic; but they have a little bit of fun and can throw in ghosts and goddesses in select episodes.
While this may be in the Harem category, it is not in the Ecchi category. There were no panty shots or girls with crazy cleavage. The girls are very pretty, and you do have girls with short skirts and huge ( ) ( )'s.
The main female attraction is really quite amazing, and you find yourself rooting for something to happen throughout the episodes.
The art was well done, not cutesy or young. The main female attraction was very beautifully drawn.
I actually enjoyed the intro song for all 25 episodes.
The main male character was well done. He was a normal nice guy, who was lucky and could excel at what he put his mind to.
The variety of humerous characters were abundant, and fun. Not too much of specific ones to make it boring. Okay I lied, there were two instances where I didn't think they had to draw out (a teacher, and i didn't like the youngest love interest). But with 25 episodes, it was very good overall.
I've seen quite a few of these romantic comedies, and this stands out as an entertaining series. read more

The characters were enjoyable. There wasn't much beating around the bush as far as romance was concerned, which suited me quite well. Nobody "did" it (Like the first episode of REC!), you still have the blushing and accidental bath scenes. It was just refreshing to have people like each other without dragging it on for eons. The classmate and the elder sister type were especially enjoyable. The younger characters were quite fun as well.
I'd say the balance between story, humor, and fighting were pretty well done. Perhaps a few of the "power up" sequences were a bit repetitive, but hey thats how they got some brief ecchi in. There honestly wasn't THAT much. I think it was just the right amount, for those who aren't a big fan of that.
The art suited my tastes . Beautiful, not too young, cute.
Some con's perhaps would be if you're into fighting, the repetitive "powers" probably wouldn't do it for you.
I had originally scored 7's across the board, but in writing the review, i'm going to bump up a few.
The art quality is actually pretty good. As a stand alone way to spend an hour you may find some enjoyment in it.
The art was quite good. Overall, it leaves this romantic satisfied. If you're into the "Ross and Rachel" type stories then this is a good one for you.

The female Onda, Aka played the cute, happy, but vulnerable role quite well. At times you really wanted to strangle Matsumaru, Fumihiko ; who appears to be more crass than other sensitive male leading roles.
Perhaps it is truthfulness like this which mirrors real life; that adds to the beauty of this series. Now I"ll have to look to see if there are any Manga out for this.
(PS there is and it is ongoing. The anime touches volume one and they are currently into Volume 5)
Enjoy. read more
