A beautiful conclusion to the Television Series characters
4 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is probably best seen if you've at least watched the OAV series of Kimagure Orange Road (better if you've seen the actual series). It is a very serious ending to a whimsical television series. It is very mature in how it treats the relationship. I cried.
