And that was the main reason I gave this series a pass, to try to forget what I had learned about the characters and the stories. But a few days ago, I came across a complete set of the manga, and it was priced reasonably enough. Me, being more curious than I should and felt like I've punished myself enough, bought the set and devoured them. I'm thinking I never like Boku to Kanojo no XXX this much, but then BokuKano seems to be more "niche" (if that is the word) by the fact that it bends scientific laws to suit the story (not that Yamada Taro doesn't, but I feel I could take Yamada Taro as more believable, if only marginally). BTW, in some volumes, Yamada does resemble the main character from BokuKano (ah, it's the other way around, actually, since Yamada Taro was drawn first, but I say that because Yamada usually looks more different, particularly on the manga covers).
And, this. I don't know, maybe I shouldn't be so happy about it. Ultraman references are not that scarce in anime and manga, but I think this is the first time I've seen one in a shoujo manga.
Working my way through the drama. I finished two episodes so far. :) Glad that episode 2 (and the series in general) seems to improve on the original manga story. Although a guy (besides Yamada) whom I was really looking forward to doesn't (so far) seem as cute as the one in the manga. Not to mention this seemingly familiar place makes an appearance again (I suppose if I put myself to it, I can eventually find out exactly where this place is). And I so love the upbeat theme song (whose name is Happiness, I believe).
