    i never bothered to watch the last 5 or so eps... is it worth it to hunt it down? it was an okay series, but i dunno if i want to make an effort. i'm sure it wouldn't be anything surprising.

    Too much recapping?
    Does the story get better?
    Does it become too much like a soap opera?

    to much recapping?

    as in first 2 minutes of most episodes after the opening tells whats happened so far, then episode 9 is all recap and 1/2 of episode 10 is recap.

    i would deffinately say the series is worth finishing. my understanding is there is supposed to be a second season but noone knows when/if it'll be produced. since the manga covers all of HS, not just "freshmen" year like the anime does...

    yea, there's lot of recapping and repetition of the underlying theme. over and over and over again... kinda annoying. other than that it's not too bad. i would watch it as more of a filler series... something to watch while waiting for new eps of others that're more interesting.

    So, like, if you were reviewing Kare Kano as a part of Gainax's catalog, how would you rate it? Good? Mediocre? Average? Could have been better? Seen better? etc...
    Is the first 6 eps better than the rest? Indicative of what to come and more?

    Kare Kano in terms of style, animation, and story telling is by far the best Manga to Anime conversion ever.

    However, the last 5 or so eps will really piss you off... it kind of trails around the lesser characters and cuts itself off. The manga goes much further of course... as it did continue after the anime run. Pick up either the manga/anime, it's a good read/watch.

    one of the better anime I've watched. I thought it was funny and found myself getting attached to Miyazawa :o

    and the last few episodes is kinda gay... especially the paper cutout episode :ugh:

    Dammit. I finally finished this series. My SO like it alot. We both love how it's very honest and very cute. High school is a long time ago, but this is just better. Great writing, great character animation. Lots of recap for no reason at all. :wtf: 2 eps devoted just for recap amongs other 5 minute recap at the beginning of almost every ep? That's a lot of time that could have been devoted to show how cute Arima and Yukino can be together, or Shibanime and her step brothers, or Yukino's parents.

    Anyway, I'm so pissed at the ending. My SO hasn't seen the ending, but she'll hate it like I do. IT JUST ENDS? GODDAMMIT!!!
    What happened to Arima and Yukino?
    Did Arima finally resolve childhood issues?
    What's going on with the Culture Fest? How did the play go?

    I FUCKING WANTS RESOLUTIONS!!!!!! :rant:

    WHAT THE FUCK!!!!

    Buy the manga - they stay fairly close (although not perfectly). For the most part, the show stops at vol 7 (AFAIK), altough a few things from the show leak into vol 8.

    Manga vol 10 just came out 7/6/04 from TokyoPop and it's pretty damn good.
