It has a lot of problems (some of which were pointed out by AironicallyHuman), but regardless what they were I still found the series entertaining.
My viewing of anime generally falls under one of two categories: those that I watch intently, and those I watch casually. KOR mostly belongs to the latter. It was simple: mostly comedic characters, silly and sometimes random episode premises, and sometimes some drama. That said, I enjoyed comedic episodes and generally disliked the dramatic ones.
If this series had been made in the last decade, I wouldn't have enjoyed it as much. For some reason however, 80s romantic comedies have a certain charm I can't help but be attracted to.
Overall, I rated this series 7/10.

Very nice last two episodes. More similar episodes and this show could have scored 8-9/10 .
I'm glad to see they actully used brain little bit in matter of influencing past that wasn't actually seen as change in present.
(Many time travel movies got character relazing that present changed but that would make no sense as charater made change in past thus he had had to live in changed world before timetravel so he wouldn't have seen that change, glad they did it right in here :-) )

@A4L99 Yes, she knew. I could write about it myself but since it's already available in a better english language than mine:
A Guide to KIMAGURE ORANGE ROAD said:
Does Madoka know about Kasugas' powers at the end of the series?
Does she remember her trip to the world six years ago?
Yes. The dialogue, as well as the tone, have changed.
In the beginning Kyosuke naps under the tree. Madoka tickles his nose.
They talking about napping. Then Madoka says that she had her first kiss
under the tree.
Kyosuke:"I know! He's your first love!"
At the end Kyousuke naps under the tree. Madoka tickles his nose. They
talk about napping. Madoka notes that someone else said the same thing.
Kyosuke:"And who was that?"
Madoka: "He was my first love..."
Kyosuke:"And that person still loves you."
In addition to the change in dialogue, the tone has also changed. The
playful way Madoka readily acknowledges at the end that the person she met
was her "hatsukoi" instead of saying "aru hito" as she did in the beginning
is but one sign. If she didn't remember anything at all, she should have
at least shown some sign of suprise or confusion when Kyosuke held her and
said "And that person [that she met 6 years ago] still loves you." The kiss
that happens next really doesn't make any sense if she doesn't remember a
thing, but has a large impact and meaning after what she's actually been
through and seen.
There are a lot of other signs and hints, such as the expectant manner
in which Madoka turns to Kyosuke after he tells her that the person still
loves her, etc.
