It's true. His and Her Circumstances (Kare Kano) has become my favorite anime series. And it's a chick flick. Grrrrr. Can't help but like it though. The animation is perfect, the way the characters look real, but then go into a mind's-eye image where they're super-deformed. The English dubbing is great, and they even took the time to create subtitle overlays for all the on-screen text. Except for Episodes 14 and 18. 14 is nothing but a God-damn recap of what happened the last 13 episodes. And to add insult to injury, it's 1.5 episodes long. I hated the animation in 18 with a passion. The way that everything was done with paper cut-outs. What happened, did the animator not show up for work that day? Retards invaded the studio? Inquiring minds want to know. I literally watched all of Volume 4 last night. At once. In one sitting. I can't wait for Sept. 30th. Volume 5 and the conclusion. I've been told that Love Hina is a good series in the mold of His and Her. Anyone have any opinions? Oh yeah, no spoilers please. I don't want to know how the series ends.
