    Since this forum has just gotten started I thought I would start with an easy question.

    So, let's go!

    I have to admit I did enjoy it when I first heard about it I thought "Oh no this sounds like romantic crap" but when I watched it I was impressed

    I thought the same thing. I didn't have any other anime to watch so I figured I would give it a try. Of course, it was awesome!

    I really liked it. I mean, it wasn't perfect but overall it was an enjoyable programme.

    The storyline was unique and engaging and the characters were really likeable.

    Hikari's voice annoyed me sometimes, and I have to say I DID cry in the final episode! It affected me that much

    It's quite sad that it doesn't get the recognition it deserves, to be honest.

    Yeah it doesn't get hardly any. I first watched the series about 4 months ago and the didn't even have a page her TV.com for it. So when they got a page up for it I jumped on the board to get things rolling. Hopefully we will see more and more people join this forum. I have informed a couple of people here on TV.com about the show.

    We have you to thank for the forums crisrj214!
    Thank you!

    Anyway, I watched a few episodes on Propeller ages ago, but then I had to watch the rest online and I've saved the last episodes to my favourites because its so good!

    Anybody else felt really bad for Hikari, Ukari, Takeru etc etc?

    I felt worse for Takeru, he was stuck on earth while the love of his life left him to be in space.

    I'd be really peed off myself

    Yeah I would be pretty upset myself. Didn't he want to go with them? I don't remember exactly.

    Stiffkittens: I believe on another place you mentioned you were from the UK? If I remember correctly do you have anime channels on TV there?

    Takeru wanted to go with her, but I think she wouldn't let him and wouldn't let him leave his family and friends.

    Yeah, I'm from Wales, and we have Anime Central (but now it only plays repeats of Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell), but Propeller showed TUYBW and I missed a few episodes because I can't get it in my household.

    I wish the US would let all anime series be shown on TV here. They only show the US apropriate ones. Even on Adult Swim they censor it. Although as it's name denotes it's for adults.
