Before I even read this manga, I had a feeling I was gonna hate it cuz the characters were gonna piss me off and I'm pretty lax on my judgement of characters compare to most people. Low and behold, I was right.

Want to punch eba in the face kk
asuka ftw all the way shit bricks on haruto

Asuka sucks. Eba makes the story interesting.

Eba is what makes people not want to read the story. At least Asuka had sports going for her what does Eba have? Oh right being a bitch.

I completely agree with you. I follow the manga mainly out of habit and the unrealistic hope that he would actually end up with Asuka... Now I just want to see how it ends since I've followed it for so long.

The only character in this nice pile of shit I hate more than Yuzuki (Eba) would be her sister, and even then Rin's redeemed herself these last chapters while Yuzuki just continue to be a totall fucking bitch.

To make a full scale anime of this would/should be seriously insulting to anyone that actually has any intelligence and morals. Worst main pairing in anything I've ever read/watched.

I hope that if there's gonna be a TV series, it would be as good as the manga.

Are you guys out of your minds? You want a tv adaptation before it even finishes? Wtf is this derpy herpy shit you guys are talking about. Wait till the manga is finished, so we don't get some half assed ending. That said, I could care regardless. The rage this manga contains is not healthy for discussion.

Awesome News! Looks like ppl's predictions were spot on.
Now all we need is Hirano Aya-san to voice Eba! :P

Rage On!

yeah thats damn true, because when it gets in the middle~ damn, I HATE that part...
glad he's dead tho... fuckin' ><

It's pretty interesting that despite the severe criticism the later half of the manga has been receiving, the manga sales have been not only consistent, but in some cases, even increased considerably:

30, *27,634 *64,218 Kimi no Iru Machi vol.4
22, *31,840 *71,373 Kimi no Iru Machi vol.10
15, *36,670 *78,400 Kimi no Iru Machi vol.14

It's really interesting to see that even though a lot of people claim that the story already "jumped the shark," sales data doesn't seem to reflect this.

I can see them doing a TV series, too, if this OVA proves to be popular.
We could get GE after that. Right, Japan?

It's pretty interesting that a great part of Western fandom considers GE and 'Kimi no Iru Machi' to be kind of "related" since it seems that you can't have a topic about 'Kimi no Iru Machi' without somebody mentioning GE and vice versa. But when it comes to sales, I always see 'Kimi no Iru Machi' to be in the top manga sales rating consistently, while I have never seen sales data for GE, ever. And I have never seen GE even appear in any list of manga bestsellers, unlike 'Kimi no Iru Machi' which makes me think that GE shouldn't even be considered in the same league as 'Kimi no Iru Machi' (even though both mangas are serialized in Weekly Shounen Magazine) so I seriously doubt that we'll ever get to see any kind of anime adaptation for GE. In fact, I still wonder how that manga can still get serialized in Weekly Shounen Magazine without being cancelled considering that the title is serialized alongside with serious bestsellers like Mahou Sensei Negima, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei and Air Gear that rarely fail to be listed in the top manga sales ranking.

love to see the OVA, if its going to be like Natsume Yuuchinju animation i guess it will be good. But i don't know about the story they will use on the OVA. The manga was really good (in my opinion) at the early chapters.. not until the main character Mr. X jump from one girl Ms. Y to another girl Ms. Z to another Ms. B to another then went back to Ms. Y , but i still like it though www! xD
