Special A is one of my most favorite animes to watch over and over. The characters are memorable and really touch your heart. Like all shoujo animes, I always wish the storyline could last longer and the episodes never end.. however it does. You fall in love with Hikari because she is so thickheaded and intent on winning against Takshima while not realizing that hes completely in love with her (a favorite theme of mine for all shoujo animes =))) Moving on you fall in love with Takshima because he is so calm and collected but always worries about Hikari.
The other characters play a cute role, but I wish the storyline of Akira and Yahiro would of developed into a double romance.. anyways it kinda leaves you hanging with those two.
Otherwise a A+ type of anime!! Everyone should watch it =)
