Oh nice, that sounds great! Sato Junichi really is the king of the Slice of Life genre. Impossible for him to pump out anything bad.

If you haven't already, I'd recommend seeing Aria, Kaleido Star, and Princess Tutu since they're all excellent series directed by him.

That's me on the left with my fists up.

Also, no, I was saving Naisho for a special occasion in the future. Trust that I'm aware of its existence.

Ok I finished with Maison Ikkoku. That took me a month to finish phew. Its way faster than Legend of the Galactic Heroes that took me 6 months to finish lmao. I'm giving my full thoughts on this so bear with me.

oh man where to start? I never think I would stay emotionally invested into Godai and Kyouko's relationship and how relatable Godai's circumstances of his life being literally a shithole of failures and struggles. Every mishaps that happened to Godai, I symphasised his position as he's been pressured days on end by his tenacious tenants, college, his work, and even his attempt to keep himself as a man of responsibility to Kyouko. Speaking of Kyouko, I can safely say she's easily one of the best female characters depicted in anime media. The problem I have with "strong female characters" was they have to act like they never want to be dependent on other people or males in general to be independent for their own selves. Kyouko I feel really is a strong female characters in her own regard. At first glance, she's very reserved, kind, and sweet towards her tenants of Ikkoku. Later on, she becomes more expressive of her emotions; she can be short tempered if bothered heavily and she can be irrational despite how calm she was known to be. She sometimes never afraid to ask Godai whenever she needs help and I can appreciate little details of dependecy. As more episodes progressed, Kyouko's mysterious past adds layers of Kyouko's character. Her motivation of working at the runed-down apartment of Ikkoku made sense to me as to why she wanted to be in such a position,.


Not only Kyouko was compelling, Godai himself was relatable to any young adult males can resonate to; he's the polar opposite of Kyouko, a ronin who's pretty directionless of life and basically life being a total dick to Godai. At first, I thought he was some irresponsible prick who would never learn his lesson for every mistake but he's not really that. I find myself liking Godai as I can empthasize his struggle through his college work. As the episodes got more focus on Godai, his aspirations for education and later becoming a pre-school teacher made Godai less of an empty slate of a directionless person into a man who wanted to set a path for himself and his future. It's admirable to see Godai wanting to succeed despite how many failures he endured. Even from the way he was raised by his grandmother, Godai has a sense of dignity and respect which makes Godai even more likeable as i see Godai being a decent person. not amazing but decent since he does have his flaws. Seeing Godai caring for children was one of the most wholesome moments of the entire series, as it really sets Godai's path by the long run. I also liked how Godai's love for Kyouko was awkward at first but understandably charming to see Godai trying his best to progress his bond with Kyouko. He's really relatable and i couldn't find myself to critcize his character. A great character grounded in realism.

Now onto to the side characters; I'm a bit picky when it comes to side characters in Maison and how they are executed but i will explain myself thoroughly.I liked the tenants; Akemi, Yotsuya, and Ichinose. They do make some comedic scenes hilarious sometimes and does make the misunderstandings more of a roller coaster of fun and games. I find myself liking Akemi and Yotsuya more as they both are eptiome of care-free. Ichinose i was in the middle of thinking her character as pushy. She instigates alot and sometimes inadvertently creates misunderstandings most of the time. There's times she never was self aware of what she was doing and it somewhat bothered me. However, I don't dislike her. She shown some nice moment of characterization of being a caring mother and wife to Kentaro and her husband despite being irresponsible and a motherly figure to Kyouko. Akemi and Yotsuya also had a fair share of characterization; Akemi once in a complicated relationship and Yotsuya's enigmatic past adds to his mysterious presence. Later episodes, I feel they became less significant and more comic relief stand ins just for the sake of comedy. Akemi did played somewhat signficantly
. Kozue, cute and pure while also a potential rival for Kyouko, i never find myself hating on. She really does seem like a real sweetheart and does care for Godai
There wasn't much screentime for her but i do enjoy her presence on screen. She's so jovial, how can you hate such an angel? Mitaka himself was really enjoyable as a great romantic rival to Godai and an interesting bishounen character who doesn't annoy the shit out of me. HIs irrational fear of dogs made me like him when it was revealed to us
There are others but some I don't really add much to how i see them but i don't mind them.



Overall, I find Maison Ikkoku to be one of the greatest romance stories in anime media. It's still on par with the likes of Kare Kano although the execution of Kare Kano fits more of my taste but the steady progression Maison took made the experience extremely rewarding at the end. I had my fair share of gripes against the romance genre in anime where the chemistry of the romantic love interests fail to catch my attention because they either act cheesy or laughably cringey with all of the lame romance tropes i.e Say You Love Me or Kimi no Todoke (ye I'm getting hate for saying that; Kimi was just plain boring to me. Most romance in anime would go to a superfluous route of appealing the audience of the ideal romantic fantasy that really sound extremely cringey in reality. Why I liked Kare Kano and Maison Ikkoku was the chemistry of the couples were simple and natural. No fantasies to pander the minds of the idealistic but remind people how relationships are like. I used to be in a relationship and we aren't the best couple around. We quarrel many times and there were many "misunderstandings" that would seemingly hurt our relationship but we have kept going by hearing each other out without resorting to petty arguments or any trivial nonsense. We were separated because I had to move focus on my studies and she had to do hers but understandably, we knew that we have to be happy for each other. I think relating to Maison Ikkokku and Kare Kano really made me appreciate the qualities of life depicted in both shows. I'm glad I came across this. I was never fond of Rumiko Takahashi's work but I can give her credit where credit is due. Her depiction of adult romance is accurate to say the least. Sure, I wish some of the problems in Maison can be executed much better if the misunderstandings aren't pivotal to forward the overarching narrative. However, it is a minor issue so i can pass it as a nitpick if I can. Compare this to Urusei Yatsura and Maison Ikkoku, the improvements does show from her writing. Speaking of UY, the last episode referenced the anime lul. I haven't seen Inuyasha so I have nothing to say about it but I would love to brag to people's faces and tell them the real Rumiko Takahashi's work lies within Maison Ikkoku. It's criminally good for a Rumiko work so I guess I really misjudged her harshly I supposed

Ah look a wall text lmao. Please take your time to respond.

I can understand what you mean in order to a do a huge budget with long stuff, they need to have addicting factor to them like Doremi and Lupin for example. Well it helps that I did research into old anime, as I always been interested in them, since my roots started out with them, and they were the thing I tend to enjoy a lot. The shows I grew up with, I only grow fondly over a few of them being Oban Star Racer and Digimon Tamers. As I look back at those two I fine them to be great. Oben started out the whole goal of finding the hidden gems that exist out their as I do sometimes give anime people never heard of and give a watch hoping it would be good. I always enjoyed finding stuff like that. Even though my roots were shounen, I always tried to stare away from that during my high school years as I wanted to find all anime can offer to me. I am still looking for all the stuff, but I feel as due to the fact my taste is well established now, I starting to run out of stuff to watch, as mal account used to have a lot of plan to watch, but when I over it a couple months back, I removed the shows that no longer interest me anymore. As my interest have changed over the years. not sure what I will do once my plan to watch reach zero, but at the current way it’s going I doubt that will happen anytime soon. So, I got time to figure my next path with anime, as I feel that one day I will see every good thing it can offer to me. Even though it took a long time to get into anime, I am glad to see how you got into they way it did, I wish I had my taste established sooner, but what can I say I always following the crowd back in 2009-fall 2013,. I didn’t know what was good, I just had the same opinions as everyone else, but when I went to watch Ikkoku and joe that when everything changed. As I knew my taste, but even so my taste didn’t stop evolving as last year I thought I reached my peak how far my interest can go, but I was wrong when I watcedh Mahoujin Guruguru a show I had no idea I was going to love, I had feeling I was going to like, but to came out loving was a shocked. I thought that I had my favs established, but Guruguru taught me, that my favs can always change, and now I am striving to find my true top 10 and hopefully found a list that has stay power.


true what you said about the memories as my experience with joe will always stay with me, as it had a long-lasting effect on me and impacted me as whole. Looking forward to your coming back to Kenshin as that series is honestly one of things I love the most out of anything I have experienced. If you are willing to listen I can list things why Kenshin means so much to me. I can recommend you play Shenmue if you are interested in series that has very slow pacing, but can be rewarding later on, want to see a game that different them most games are, to see how much impacted gaming, and if you want a journey of Ryo Hazuki. As his journey I view to be very great so far and I look forward to seeing how he progress in Shenmue 3. I know that you have an Xbox one luckily for you sega did a hd remasters for ps4, steam, and Xbox one. So if wanted to go ahead and get for it xbox, we have no word yet if 3 will come out, but as looking the xbox one copy of shnemue hd keep seeing, maybe that will interest Yu Suzuki to port over Shenmue 3 to it, once the game has come out for Ps4 and Steam.

From your comments on Dokkan you got me really hyped for it, not sure I will watch it as I still got the get through 3 mores seasons first. I hope my experience with Dokkan is similar to that of yours. For now all I can discuss with you about doremi is season 1, so I will post my thoughts on that.
