Kyousuke Kasuga is no stranger to being the new kid at school. Despite only being a third-year middle schooler, he has spent his entire childhood avoiding those who discover his family's paranormal powers, and he has had to change schools seven times as a result. Upon catching a beautiful girl's hat, he becomes optimistic and hopes that he and his family have finally moved for the last time.

When Kyousuke gets to school, however, he learns a different story. The elegant girl he just met turns out to be none other than Madoka Ayukawa—also known as "Madoka the Pick"—a delinquent known to smoke, drink, and get into fights. Her best friend is first-year Hikaru Hiyama, a childish and energetic girl who quickly falls in love with Kyousuke. Enamored with both girls, Kyousuke tries to balance a delicate triangle of emotions, all while dealing with the antics brought about by a family with paranormal powers.

One day, whilst browsing an anime group, I chanced upon one of the most beautiful female characters — Ayukawa Madoka from 'Kimagure Orange Road.'

I grew up as a 90s kid with Ranma ½ but, unlike in Europe where it is well known, it's unknown in my country, so I decided to check it out. It turns out to be one of the beloved 80s series.

But in 2024 going forward, is it still worth watching this anime? It depends.

It's a story of a 15-year-old teenager, named Kasuga Kyousuke. He has supernatural powers, and for many years, his family has been moving from place to place ...

Kimagure Orange Road is a romantic-comedy slice of life anime that was made in 1987, so two years after Touch began its adaptation & 1 year Maison Ikkoku began its adaptation.

story ,art ,sound that is just something you can not juje the show is so old so don't expect anything pleasing to the eye , ear and mind from the story as it moves at snails pace
Characters they become more of corpses without their souls as the series progresses the show throws all its best cards in the introduction of the characters but that is pretty much it any expectation of seeing more depth out of this characters is crashed

enjoyment a 4 -10
i only enjoyed the first couple of episodes but afterwords it becomes repetitive
and nothing of progression ...
