The epitome of Japanese high school melodrama.
26 December 1999 | by (Tempe, AZ) – See all my reviews

This alternately hilarious and poignant series is simply one of the wildest emotional roller-coasters Japan has produced, and it's quite simply a lot of fun. As Miki and Yuu weather all manner of things while coming to terms with their attraction to each other, you feel all the mood swings a high schooler can have. It's like returning to your teenage years, even if they all just happen to be high-class Japanese who vacation every other week. Marmalade Boy appeals to the high schooler in all of us - and let's hope this series gets the exposure in the Western world it deserves.
