"What we've got here is... failure to communicate." - Cool Hand Luke

Misunderstandings are brought about by a failure to convey what one truly wants to say. In many cases the problems caused are nothing more than trivialities, but in certain situations a misunderstanding can have damaging consequences. Relationships can end, families can turn against each other, friends can become enemies, misunderstandings can even spark wars.

Maison Ikkoku is probably one of the most well known and influential romantic comedies in the history of manga and anime. Created in 1980 by the reknowned Takahashi Rumiko, the manga was serialised in "Big Comic Spirits" for its entire read more

Maison Ikkoku: the famous, much loved romantic comedy (rom-com) that began its serialisation waaaay back in 1980. Its success resulted in a flood of manga being created about a college loser falling madly in love and, after many comical hardships, EVENTUALLY getting the girl of his dreams.

The story is about a group of individuals living at a boarding house that is - of course - called Maison Ikkoku ('MI' from this point onwards). Kyoko Otonashi, a 22-year-old widow still trying to come to terms with the death of her husband, moves in as the manager in an attempt to take her mind off her problems. read more

Maison Ikkoku will have you both crying and laughing, both angry and at ease, and both content but wanting more. Takahashi Rumiko has set up the prefect formula in making a successful romantic comedy.

A lot of people will complain on how the series drags in the middle, and this is probably true. This series could have been about 100 chapters shorter and still had been as good. But at the same time this series could have been 100 chapters longer and still been as good. This is the charm of Rumiko. You might get angry at the countless number of misunderstandings that happen for read more
