His and Her Circumstances Vol. 1

» written by Wai Yung (Wayne) Chim [Discuss]

Pressure is high for Yukino Miyazawa to succeed, to be loved by all, and to be simply… the best. After working so hard to become the top student at her school, a new competitor has arrived to tumble her from her self made pedestal: Souichirou Arima. The instant she met him, she hated him. He topped her every effort without even trying. Now Yukino is putting her hard work into plotting her revenge, but was love part of the plan?
Alpha adds: Please note Kare Kano is the name of His and Her Circumstances in Japan.


The Breakdown
This is a great series! As it was stated in the Director’s Notes, Kare Kano is *unexpected*. I agree with the director, because I didn’t hear about Kare Kano until Stikz mentioned it in one of those polls he made on the boards. Hey I guess this can be another series that I can have fun watching as I wait for GTO and as I watch GTO I won’t be bored out of my mind waiting for Kare Kano J.


» The Pros
Kare Kano (His Her), what a lovable series this is! Characters are cute especially Yukino's two little sisters. This is one of those romance love comedies that really shine in its genre. The way that Yukino pursues her smart image in school is very different to how she is at home. Very different indeed, hehe. Anyways in volume one of Kare Kano, Yukino has a grudge with Souichirou Arima. He is the only person that can challenge Yukino in academic studies. Of course, because of this, Yukino tries everything to be better than Souichirou and finally one day, her secret has been revealed to Souichirou. Being the smart kid that he is, he uses this secret to black mail Yukino into her doing his work. Finally when Yukino can take the work no longer, she gives him a piece of her mind. Now this begins a love relationship between the two, when Souichirou explains why he did the things he did. That's as far I'll go. Don't want to spoil it!! Go out and buy Kare Kano (His and Her Circumstances) volume one to see for yourself.

» The Cons
So far in volume one, which contains six episodes of the series. The cons I found were...none. Is it because I love this genre so much that I can't complain on a product that shows what a romantic comedy really is?

» Animation
The animation isn't new or anything, but I like it. It seems to me that this series was all done by hand. There weren't much special computer effects that I noticed, if there was any at all.

» Sound
Why a 10? I can't expect much from a romance drama can I? Kare Kano had the cute voices for the characters. The opening theme is all right, but the ending theme is the song that got me most. I feel so free when I hear it. (Weird)

» Story
First they were enemies, and then something happened that changed the whole situation. Although I've seen this kind of base story a lot, but the difference between Kare Kano and other shows is the development of this base and that's where it was interesting.

» Recommend
You action fans should stay away, while us romance comedy loving fanatics can experience one of the best examples of the genre out there.

Nicely done art box, it shows Yukino on one side and Souichirou on the other. There is a lock drawn on the box to show that they are locked to each other. Without the box, the DVD itself is a clear case with the cover sheet. Showing Souichirou and Yukino together, happily of course J.
