Storyline

Yusaku Godai, a bumbling college student, is in love with his landlord, Kyoko Otonashi. Otonashi, while attracted to Godai, is hesitant, having lost her first husband in the not-too-distant past. The rest is history: Godai schemes to win Otonashi's heart, all the while battling off his rival, Shun Mitaka, and fending off his lunatic neighbors, who include an old woman who lives on gossip and liquor (Ichinose), a scantily-clad flirt (Akemi), and a bizarre, enigmatic man (Yotsuya).

Not as wild as the comic
19 November 2003 | by (Plattsmouth, NE) – See all my reviews

The anime version of Maison Ikkoku doesn't have quite so much of the sexual humor as the original comics by Rumiko Takahashi, and for some reason the actor who plays Godai tries to hard to be funny and ends up overplaying him sometimes. Actually, a lot; but there are times when he nails the character. Sumi Shimamoto (one of my favorite voice actresses) as Kyoko Otonashi is just too perfect. She doesn't come across sounding like her strong Nausicaa voice or her soft Clarice-from-LupinIII voice--she sounds like a young woman who is trying to live on.

The animation, while it seems crude, was actually pretty good for back them (I think the Guyver came out about the same time--Maison Ikkoku is better). And every once in a while, the writers stretch a passing joke of Takahashi's well past the breaking point, until your willing to do anything if they would only stop for a minute so you can stop laughing.
