What is great about the series, is that it follows the development of the characters, each season almost as long as a half a year in their life.
By the end you really feel like you got a glimse of real life. Well as real as it can get with a comical cast like this one.
I feel like although the animation has dated a bit, it still is decent enough to portray the story, and as it goes along it just gets better.

I think it is one of the few Rumiko Takahasi works that ends with a satisfying feeling.
Always on my top 10 list. at tiems in my top 5.

This is indeed a good anime. After hitting the last couple arc, it's incredible in terms of character development.

I can't think of many other of her works that...

I'd say it's her best romantic work.

Also has a male lead that is one of the very few I would want to exchange places with. ;)

You and me both, man, you and me both.

Though that damn dog would drive me up the wall as well.

Ranma 1/2 is probably a close second. But Maison Ikkoku is indeed my favorite anime of all time. It beat out my previous favorite please teacher[onegai teacher] quite easily.

I would have never guessed with your name =)
lol Yeah Ranma 1/2 is my second fave of hers , followed by Urusei Yatsura. I imagine Inuyasha might come next, but I always dug her Mermaid Scar and Forest.

So, I've been reading the manga and it's got me wanting to watch the anime again. Is there anyone who would like to watch it along with me and discuss it along the way?

Thought I'd see if there were any takers before I dug out my box sets.
