Is love like the bittersweet taste of Marmalade on toast?
28 September 1999 | by (That Place, Over There) – See all my reviews

This. Anime. RULES!

Well of course it does! I chose to make my IMDB username Koishikawa Miki for a reason, after all. For those who love light romantic comedy (And lots of swirling pastel colours), Marmalade Boy is for you. Thrill to the exploits of Koishikawa Miki, quite possibly the worlds most confused young woman, and Matsuura Yuu who is just too cool for words.

And don't miss the movie either! GASTAMAN!

Koishikawa Miki
