Maison Ikkoku Episode 1
Sorry To Keep You Waiting! I’m Kyoko Otonashi!
Omatase shimashita! Watashi ga Otonashi Kyoko desu!!
Maison Ikkoku was one of the first anime I watched in childhood, but I never finished it. A while ago, I posted a brief overview of the series and promised to myself to re-watch it someday. Recently, I stumbled upon some wonderful songs from this anime, and finding Juliette je t’aime AMV added more oil to the fire. I wanted to re-watch this anime, this time till the end, but I hesitated due to the length (96 Episodes). However, I recalled the concept of opportunity cost that my Economics professor was so fond of.
My interest in the new anime continues to dwindle, as I find myself less and less excited about each new season. I can cover several new popular shows that I am somewhat interested in or cover what some consider the best work of Rumiko Takahashi. On the other hand, not many people will be watching the show concurrently with me, but I hope that my coverage will bring back good memories for those who seen it already and reveal some trivia. 🙂
OP1: Kanashimi yo, Konnichiwa “Hello Sadness” by Yuki Saito
Nice pastel art and song in this opening 🙂
ED1: Ashita Hareru ka (Will Tomorrow Be Brighter?) by Takao Kisugi
I just love the ED: great music and visuals 😀
Maison (めぞん) = house (French)
Ikkoku (一刻) = a) Address at #1 Koku Street b) instant in time c) stubborn or hot-tempered
Names of the characters are quite interesting. This section also serves as a debriefing for the first part of my somewhat cryptic announcement 😉
