    I started watching this series over again and I don't think I've enjoyed any series as much as this one.

    Nobody dies, there's no giant robots, no girls with big guns, no boys that change into girls with warm water, nothing totally absurd happens. It's just a damn good story about a loser and his girl problems. :hs:

    If you've never seen this series you're totally missing out.

    KOR is nearly as good too, but it is a bit more absurd. :hs:

    These types of stories are always frustrating.

    just finished KOR and was gonna try this later, heard these two are the best drama/comedy series from the 80s.

    It's worth the wait.

    Generally I don't like long series but KOR and MI are the perfect length and leave me satisfied. Something that seems more and more uncommon in new anime.

    I just watched 1-5, good, slow story development but hell thats why you have 90 ep, to get to know the characters.

    on a diffrent note, i watched the KOR movies, so much better than the series. I didnt think that was possible. :bowdown:

    ok i am up to ep 16 of this and i have to say that i really like the flavor of it.

    you can see how ALOT of shows after this have pulled things from the story line, must have inspired alot of people. :hs:

    what do you expect from 1980s anime?
    story > animation (sometimes :wiggle: )

    I must reiterate that this is one of the best anime series of all time.

    There is so much that happens in this series that elicits real verbal reactions from me as I'm watching, it really pulls at your heart strings and your funny bones.

    It recieves my highest recommendation. It is a must see for any anime fan.

    It's hard to fathom that the same author came up with this stellar series and later went on to produce absolute trash like Ranma and Inuyasha. :ugh:

    It's truly your loss. MI is a timeless classic and the animation is quite good for a twenty year old TV series. Much better than SDF Macross.

    hmm, I might re-attempt to watch this

    wait... how long ago did you watch this? it wasn't your first romance anime by any chance, was it? they tend to be the most memorable for the viewer even if they're above average but not truly great.
