Episode Guide

  • Season 4
    • Shipwrecked on Ikkoku Island
      This special is the only 'true' OAV in the series. This is a completely original piece of animation. The story is based on the extra chapter of Maison Ikkoku where the tenants and Mitaka are all shipwrecked on a deserted island due to the usual insane partying by Ichinose, Akemi and Yotsuya. Once they are on the island Kyoko begins sweeping the sand to keep herself busy while Godai and Mitaka compete with one another to catch fish for Kyoko and make sure she doesn't starve. All the while Yotsuya wanders off by himself and finds a nearby resort, where he makes himself right at home, never telling his other castaways of course.moreless
    • Kanketsuhen (Final Chapter)
      Released on February 6, 1988 as a double feature with Urusei Yatsura Kanketsuhen, this movie marked the end of the Maison Ikkoku storyline. The storyline takes place two days before the wedding of Godai and Kyoko and most of the characters in the series make an appearance. The movie is 90 minutes long, and originally the director wanted to utilize real time, following a 90 minute long party at Ikkoku without any cut aways. The television series original character designer, Yuji Moriyama made his return for the movie, and gave the characters a new look. The movie also marks the only appearance of Room 2 resident, Nozomu Nikaido, who was omitted from the television series.moreless
