Definitely a winner!!
30 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

Well, wow.

I just loved this Anime to death!

To start with, the characters are absolutely lovable. Although some may argue that a few of the characters are a bit cliché, there are some that definitely make up for that. For instance, the main character Niwa Daisuke is just a generally good-natured guy. The relationships are also wonderfully played out! You absolutely will fall in love with the characters.

Also, the overall quality of an Anime is very important to me. Especially plot. Because this Anime was made /after/ the Manga had finished, it has a well-rounded feeling and ends VERY well (the climax happens well, and it ends sweetly). The plot is played out very well and I loved it!!

So far this has been my favorite Anime =D Yay!
