About Kimagure Orange Road Blu-ray
Kimagure Orange Road is a 1987 anime TV series directed by Osamu Kobayashi.
It can be hard moving to a new school, and fifteen-year-old Kyosuke has it harder than most. He's fallen head over heels for his classmate Madoka, a girl who won't even give him the time of day, and unintentionally ended up dating her best friend, Hikaru, instead.
Worst of all, Kyosuke and his family have amazing supernatural powers, but he has to keep them hidden from the rest of the world! How is Kyosuke ever going to balance the affections (or lack thereof) of two girls, schoolwork, and his secret abilities all at the time?

Ratings & Reviews
Kyosuke's got the power!
Kasuga Kyosuke has the power of precognition, telekinesis, and teleportation. Throw in the classic love triangle plot and you have Kimagure Orange Road the TV series.
I only gave this set four stars because the KOR movie, which concludes the original TV series, seems to be missing here. The KOR movie was only available in the KOR OAV's + Movie boxed set; which hopefully, will also be released soon.
Beautiful and extremely influential anime
This show is a classic from the mid 1980's. The homages to KOR within future anime are endless. Watch the first episode and it'll seem so cliche - but that's only because KOR did it and everyone else repeats it in tribute. And, of Ayukawa Madoka. The strong female character which is so prevalent in anime owes so much to Ayukawa-san. I cannot recommend KOR enough. I own the entire DVD set and will get the Bluray too.
