This one is a must-see. It really is very good (based on 28 episodes).
15 June 2007 | by See all my reviews

This one is good guys =) I had never heard of this when I started watching and didn't know what I was in for.

I'm currently on episode 28 and it's awesome. Every episode leaves you wanting more. I really can't say anything bad about this one because the animation is interesting and beautiful, the music is rocking, the voice acting is perfect and the plot is very deep, subtle, shocking and suspenseful. Also, there are so many laugh out loud moments and you really start to care about these characters.

Summary------- Two girls both with the same name and age meet unexpectedly and become roommates in Tokyo whilst chasing their dreams. The interesting thing is that they are polar opposites but somehow fit together like a glove.

One is strong, proud and independent while the other is the opposite but oh how their characters learn, grow and change.

I don't want to give away anything so that bare summary is just 5% of the depth of this Anime.

I recommend this to adults as there are many serious themes covered. Despite that this one is just plain fun and addicting to watch. You never feel preached to.

What else can I say......give this one a good chance (at least 3-5 episodes before making any judgments).

Also, I must mention that the music is very good as well. We have music by Anna Tsuchiya (first op. third ending) and Olivia Lufkin (first ending, second op. second ending). Both are popular rock singers in Japan so the music is top-notch.

I haven't enjoyed an anime series this much since Hunter X Hunter (my all-time favorite).
