The Review!
Audio
Everything sounded good in all 48 episodes I didn't detect any problems.It sounds pretty good for a tv series from 87-88.

Video
There is nits etc... in the episodes but I think you'll only notice them if your really look hard.The openings and endings you can see them no problem though.

Menu
Standard basic stuff nothing special.

Packaging
The artwork chosen for the dvd covers are pretty lame.The cover to the box is also lame.Animeigo should've used better artwork but oh well.

Extras
None unless you count the booklet of linear notes.I like the fact that the linear notes are in a booklet.Instead of how Animeigo usually puts a single piece notes in individual volumes.

Content
Great stuff, this show can get pretty addicting and you want to see all 48 episodes asap.Thats good the best animes are always like this.This is a great Shonen romance story, although it does have comedy it says mature for the most part.The story is about Kyosuke who is in love with this girl named Madoka at first sight.Another girl named Hikaru is in love with Kyosuke.Although Kyosuke wants to be with Madoka he sorta and sometimes does want to be with Hikaru.It's a love triangle story.Kyosuke would have it easier if didn't even try to get with Madoka he already has a girl who loves him Hikaru.Kyosuke keeps trying to win Madoka over but it seems somtimes like he can't.It's a sorta like Maison Ikkoku.

Kyosuke has powers which can make things interesting and lots of fun.Kyosuke has his preverted friends who is always trying to get with girls, especially his sisters.Kyosuke sometimes he tries to be with both girls at the same time Madoka and Hikaru which was quite entertaining.
There is a lot to like about this show.If you like romances and or story you'll more than likely enjoy this.Action fans could even like it I like action series too but I enjoyed this even more.

In the end it's a very enjoyable series and worth the money.It's one of the best anime tv series out in the US.I'm glad that another 80's tv series has come out here.After the tv series if you enjoyed it a lot I would say get the 2 movies and the ovas so you could enjoy more KOR.Also get a conclusion to the whole series.
This is great stuff and I highly recommend it.
