Great anime series
9 November 2004 | by maniac-32See all my reviews

'Kimagure orange road' (or 'Max et compagnie' as it is called in France) is the best anime series I have ever watched. It's a touching, beautiful adaptation of the great comic series by Izumi Matsumoto. The character designs by Akemi Takada are simply wonderful. Madoka must be my favorite female character ever.

The series has a nostalgic feeling about it but the story is interesting enough on it's own. Although the animation may look somewhat dated by today's standards, i find it to be appealing at the same time. If you are looking for an anime that isn't about fantasy worlds or fighting contests, look no further.

Kimagure orange road should be watched by all anime fans... A classic!
