His and Her Circumstances

by

A classic shoujo title from the director of Neon Genesis Evangelion. I bought this show twelve years ago and I still rank it among my top five favorite anime shows. It's both heartwarming and funny.







Yukino Miyazawa thought she was the image of perfection until she met Souichiro Arima. She must destroy him! Or not... The indomitable, enthusiastic, and egotistical Yukino and the talented, cool , and troubled Arima provide a solid central focus to the story, but the side characters shine too. The story features memorable and fun characters and reveals their internal monologues as their doubts and hopes come to the fore.







The anime with its quick cuts; manga illustrations and sound effects; moody interludes in deserted school venues and on city streets; and lightning delivery of sharp dialogue and story details is very entertaining. The animation is provided in brief bursts but is used to effect.

One of my favorites. One of the more underrated romance shows out there.

This anime is a very solid romance series, not only is it very funny and entertaining to watch, it's also very good at storytelling and character development, which are things anime usually never gets right.







I gave this to a friend as a present. She has never watched an anime before and she absolutely loved it!







Thanks for making a more recent copy for such a low price!

Good show marred by "localization"

by

His and Her Circumstances already starts off strong just from the first half being written and directed by the amazing Anno, and it shows in his unique visual style. As far as the plot its somewhat standard HS Rom-com fare. Seemingly perfect girl and seemingly perfect boy hit it off and fall in love. The characters, both main and side, are enjoyable to watch bounce off each other. The only strike this show really has against it is a bit of censorship not present in the japanese release. Nothing you could consider "graphic" being censored, which makes it all the more confusing why a certain scene was changed at all. For spoiler reasons i wont mention what was changed, only that it happens in episode 18.
