Alright first episode, that introduce the main characters. I honestly don't have the names memorized yet, but with 96 episodes i'll have plenty of time.

This could easily be my first 10/10 anime in 2010.

Just the kind of comedy anime I like.

Oh and, Ms. manager really has cute behind.

Okay first episode, IMO. I felt so bad for the main character, whose name I don't remember (err Godai or something?) because everyone kept calling him "Ronin-san". His neighbours are so horrible. When I lived in residence at university first year, in a dorm, I feel like my life was a little too close to what his is like here... so maybe the reason I didn't enjoy the episode as much is because I was just super annoyed by memories of drunkards and hardcore partiers in the dorm I lived in... XD

I like Rumi Takahashi's stuff, though (Ranma 1/2, Inuyasha) so I'm sure I'll end up enjoying this.

Pretty good start. those roomates are pretty amusing.

Anyone else notice young versions of the Urusei Yatsura cast about 5 minutes in.

Nice start. It has that real classic feel to me. I have a feeling this could be something really special.

I've only heard positive things about Maison Ikkoku, so even though it didn't look like something I'd enjoy, I decided to give it a shot to see what it's like.

Sadly, I confirmed what I had feared. In this one episode I just watched, I found absolutely nothing funny nor enjoyable whatsoever. This show seems rather annoying, and all I see are people consuming alcohol, which is something I find offensive. If it happened once in every blue moon, I could tolerate it, but this looks like a show where people are drinking in nearly every episode.

I was originally planning on watching a few more episodes before making a final judgement, but the one episode I watched was painful enough to get through as it was, so I simply cannot watch any more of Maison Ikkoku, so I'm dropping it now, making this the first Anime I've ever dropped.

April 22nd edit: I've decided to try to watch a few more episodes of this Anime, only because people keep telling me that it gets better, and because where I enjoyed Kimagure Orange Road, they figure I should like this too.

Although, I don't expect it to get any better.

^ Awfully sensitive to alcohol consumption.
I look forward to the romantic developments. A few funny moments in this episode.
