View Full Version : Maison Ikkoku/Japanese culture & Takahashi reference sources?
06-02-2006, 10:03 AM
Watching through Maison Ikkoku, hopefully ending in time for box 8, I couldn't help wishing Viz had provided Animeigo-style liner notes on the Japanese culture & any Takahashi tributes to things, as AE gave Urusei Yatsura.
Are there any books or sites in English that provide that type of information on MI's episodes?

While I'm grateful to Viz for releasing the series, I'm not expecting the best treatment from them either. You can view some cultural notes at this site (http://furinkan.com/maison/) under "Questions."

in addition for Furinkan's MI-page, here's the other good MI-site that explain the stuff (culture and otherwise) from MI:
