Trivia

While "Kareshi Kanojo no Jijyou" (1998) literally means "The Circumstances of a Boyfriend and Girlfriend", its actual (and official translation used by RightStuf International) is "His or Her Circumstances." While "kareshi" and "kanojo" both mean "boyfriend" and "girlfriend" respectively, they are sometimes used to mean "his" or "her." However, this practice is rarely used outside of textbook Japanese.

great anime...too bad about the ending
4 May 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

His and Her Circumstances was one of the finest pieces of anime I have ever seen, its definitely among my favourites with Fruits Basket and Inital D.

The story centers on over-achiever Yukinon, loved by all for her looks, intelligence and all around niceness...well thats not the Yukinon we the viewers we see, it is all an act to be loved, thats all she cares about is being loved by people (oh and raking in the dough), she doesn't care how hard she has to work to hide her somewhat crazy side haha. That is until she meets Arima...equal to her in looks and intelligence...but something dark lurks within Arima.

The love story is developed beautifully, and the sidekicks are hilarious as well, including Yukinon's family and Arima's best friend (can't remember his name) and Tsubasa is so evil and cute haha.

The only thing that lets this anime down is the ending or lack thereof...it never concludes and all viewers are left hanging for more. Apparently there was an argument between the writers of the anime and the creator of the manga or something.

9/10
