I've only recently started reading that manga...although it is a 'classic' from the 80s. The feelings and thoughts of the characters are confusing at times, but it still give off a bit of the similar vibes as I"s...well, it's from the same author afterall.
You're in for a good read.

Its a shame that most of Masakazu Katsura's works end up as short OVA's instead of getting a full tv series. Has some of the best romance plotlines i've ever seen.

I''s was a GREAT manga. almost as great as the Ichigo 100% manga. it was wierd though, seeing that it was told in flashback mode and they omitted the part when he was basically told to F off by that girl he liked when he was little. if they showed that, then people wouldnt have known why seto-kun was so cold to iori-chan at their first meeting. they couldve introduced itsuki as a childhood friend at that point too. maybe im just nitpicking but i really wanted to see this turned into a full 26+ episode series. maybe if the ova's catch on...

Well, the one of his work which got a full TV series was 'Wingman'. Even though it was action focused not romance, I remember I loved that anime when I was a little kid, and then by chance read all its manga like over 10 years later, and I was like 'holy cow I didn't know Wingman was by Masakazu Katsura...'. I simply love the design for the appearance of Wingman...it's like Guyver with more sci-fi technology instead of bio-technology...

At the moment I'm following the manga of Zetman which is also by him, it is similar to Guyver and it's really bloody and violent and the story is so very dark...it so hard to bare to see cute girls getting killed

I'm ordering what I can..... but the numbering of the volumes versus the release date is throwing me off.... why is "#4" not coming out til May 2006 yet I'm looking at "#5" was released 3JAN2006? (english versions). ... edit: even wackier ... the bookseller says they can ship #4 by mid February ... must be doofus database entries.... we'll see what happens...

No dispute about Ichigo.... they took a few lovely character designs and then proceeded to waste them in the biggest Clus** ..... anyway, both the manga and the anime pissed me off to no end. ... at least it pointed me at some catchy mindless europop (Team Hinoi)
Well I''s is what I consider one of the best manga for it's genre shonen/romance/drama it's not medicore crap like Ichigo 100% because I''s is better written and plus the main character is likeable unlike that annoying ass Manaka.

Heh yeah seeing pretty girls being killed is tuff I'm like "No!!! Why are you (Katmatsu the manga-ka) killing so many good looking girls" lol

Anyways it's a good manga people should check it out!!! Yes it has a horrible title name "Zetman" but trust me it's good. It took a while for that manga to gain popularity in Japan right now a few weeks ago the release of Volume 6 was in the top ten most bought manga which it was the first time that happen for that manga, heck it even outsold School Rumble vol 11.

Agreed. I"s, while utilizing many "cliche" ideas of similar shounen/romance manga, is really very well done. Plus, the incredibly beautiful artwork doesn't hurt one bit It's also quite realistic; and the author has meant it to be that way.. the mangaka was accustomed to drawing supernatural manga and drawing I"s thoroughly exhausted him ;;

I found the manga, overall, to be quite moving. That was about 4-5 years ago when I was still in my teens Still highly recommended!

I"S Pure

I'm not sure if this thread was lost in the last server crash but I'm pretty sure there was one... I cant seem to find it though, so I thought i'd make another one so people can discuss this show again. If it does exist already sorry about making it again and feel free to delete me please. Anyway... discuss away people. ^_^

I'm enjoying this series, i think it was lost in the server crash. From the looks of the raw releases the OVAs seem to be one every 6 weeks with a total of 6 OVAs. Turning out to be the usual typical romance story. I already know who im rooting for, Go Iori!!

Yup, well, it's one a month basically. Episode 4 will be released in about 2 weeks.

Incidentally, here's the existing thread. Not deleted, just inactive for a while.

Manga version is way better than anime. There is sooo much development of Ichitaka's thoughts and the story line. Although the anime is good, it is very condensed and doesn't give the same feel as reading the manga.

Episode 2 felt just like episode 1 i.e. condensed. However, I liked the conversations between Itsuki and Ichitaka when A) they were on the balcony and B) they were at school. I think the balcony part was different from the manga....but I don't really feel like checking.

And question to you all: How many of you have stared into space only to realize that you were right in front of Victoria's Secret?

Huh, no one's discussing this?

I haven't seen the manga, but I really enjoy the anime very much, even if it feels a little fast and evident a lot of plotlines are being hit fast.

From an animation perspective, this is definitely movie quality...ala A!MG / Tsubasa Chronicle movie quality...so beautiful!

Well, I don't think I've seen a fansub of episode 3 yet, but I'd assume that one will come out eventually... In terms of the show itself, there are 6 episodes in total, and the 4th one was just released in stores in Japan; 5th one is coming in two months. So there will be more, and fansubs too I presume... but good things come to those who wait.
