Just a heads up on Kare Kano, the show doesn't end very well. They were expecting a second season and a budget until about three episodes from the end, and the change in quality is conspicuous.Got it in one. That cheap discounted boxset at my local retailer had been taunting me for months and made me quite curious.
Six [*] episodes in, I'm very pleased with it.
(Although that "animation production" credit for JC Staff, really ? What animation, pray tell ?)
[*] Gotcha ! But hey, I did say 20ish.
