  • One of my favourite!

    9.5
    Even if the anime story is very different from the manga, Marmalade Boy is still today one of my favourite anime. It is a very beautiful story about a young couple and their love. Also the others characters are really interesting and in the end you become affectionate to them, so much that you don't really want the show to end. The colors used are wonderful and the lines of the draws are clear and precise. In every single episode something big and important happens, and so the whole story goes on very wickly, but at the same time everything is explained very good and in a simple and also funny way. Incredible and wonderful anime.moreless
  • The colors are washed out, the animation is dated, the storyline is a bit strange and yet it's utterly addictive. Every episode ends on a cliffhanger and it's nearly impossible to resist watching the next one.moreless

    There is A LOT of drama in this show. The show is primarily about Miki, a typical high school student, who must choose between Ginta, her old crush, and Yuu, the new boy in her life. With love and support from her friend Meiko, a smart, beautiful girl caught up in an affair with one of her teachers, she finally chooses the boy of her dreams. The drama first starts with her parent's desire to divorce and shack up with another couple after an interesting Hawaiian vacation adventure. She meets Yuu, the son of the other couple, and becomes captivated by him; I guess you could say he's her stepbrother. They all live in the same house, and occasionally the parents go away on vacation leaving the kids to…fend for themselves. There are a bunch of characters that create crazy love triangles: Arimi is obsessed with Yuu who kissed Miki who can't decide between Yuu and Ginta. Ginta likes Miki but is dating Arimi to get her jealous. Tsutomu is infatuated with Arimi and fights with Ginta all the time. Meanwhile Satoshi is interested in Meiko who is in love with Mr. Namura who broke it off and says he's dating Ryoko, a teacher at Meiko's high school. There's some forceful kissing, a lot of running and then there are suspicions that Yuu and Satoshi may be a couple…



    Overall, it's a fun story with memorable characters.moreless

  • i was only a year old when it premiered.

    I have read all of the books and it was really good, and i bet the eight books would be even better if they were on television every day. I would watch the shows over and over , again and again. In no time it might be a very popular show for teens to watch, and it would make a lot of money off of the sales of the movies, and the books would always be checked out from the library and teens might start buying the books from the bookstores. Please, Please, Please, Please bring it back so everyone can see it.moreless
