Yet another great anime!
13 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

This is another great anime to watch...Don't let the name fool you, this series isn't about a young jar of marmalade flying around and saving people...(snicker). It's a teen drama-comedy-action rolled into one! It starts off with a girl named Miki whose parents divorce and remarry another couple. The other couple has a son Miki's age, and the whole swarm of them live in one huge house. And much more happens past that.
