    1 thought on “Maison Ikkoku, Volume 1

    1. Recently widowed, young Kyoko had now become the manager of a crumbling apartment to keep her mind off of her sorrows. But will she be able cope when she has such a difficult group of tenents to deal with?A lovely first volume, though the development of Godai and the lovely manger's relationship isn't handled as smoothly as it could be. One moment Kyoko has no reason to care about him and suddenly she's worried about how he'll do in exams-though this could just be part of her good nature it's a [...]

    2. Romantic manga that tells the story of a widowed woman who becomes the manager of an apartment block. One of the tenants, a university student, is immediately attracted to her and the story is essentially a soap opera of the two of them eventually coming together. Very sweet, if a little predictable. It has author Takahashi's zany sense of humour that readers will recognize from Ranma 1/2 and Inu Yasha.

    3. Rumiko Takahashin hurmaava romanttinen saippuaooppera "Maison Ikkoku" (Viz, 1994) oli toinen lukemani japanilainen sarjakuva, ja edelleen yksi parhaista kohdalle osuneista mangoista.

    4. I liked it- I'm just not wild about it, probably because I'm a little manga-ed out right now. I hear that the second one is sweet- we'll see.

    5. This was the first volume of manga I ever read. I just reread it and still think it's one of the best comics of all time.

    6. Rumiko Takahashi is a master of capturing human nuances and then creating hilarious caricatures out of them. I use the word "caricature" positively because the two-dimentionality of her characters is intentional and it works very well with this particular flavor of comedy. Add that to Takahashi's unique art style (some would call it outdated, I prefer vintage) and the fact that I absolutely LOVE a good comedy I should have liked this story. But I didn't. Reason being: It is ridiculously chauvini [...]

    7. I've known about Maison Ikkoku for years, I just never got around to reading it. Not sure why that is, seeing as I love Rumiko Takahashi. So it's not surprising that I find myself attached to yet another of her series. Even though this can be considered one of her "earlier" works, it's still so solid. No matter what she sits down to create, the world and its characters turn out so well. Not to mention her unique drawing style just pulls it all together.You know shenanigans are in the picture whe [...]

    8. On a manga kick. It only takes me like an hour to read these, so they're perfect for when I'm baking. Excited to finish this series.

    9. Initially I started looking into Takahashi's manga due to the Inuyasha anime series on Adult Swim (based on the Inuyasha manga). It had started out nicely, but the DVD's were pricy and hard to find at the time.I came across this, and liking the first volume, ended up buying the set, one at a time, as an escape from my usual reading habits.I'm really unsure what on earth was going on with the volume description above.A (failing) college student lives in a boarding house with a typical sitcom styl [...]

    10. I've read Maison Ikkoku several times. I'm not the biggest fan of Takahashi's other works (Ranma, Inuyasha) but this one will always remain one of my best-loved manga. Right, so, this series is a story about a group of people living in an apartment building together. The 'main' characters are a struggling student and a young, widowed landlord, but the supporting cast of characters is incredibly intertwined with these two. The characterization is spot-on: I could actually believe these are real p [...]

    11. I used to love Inuyasha when I was younger and when I was browsing my local library for something to read and saw Maison Ikkoku, I decided, "Hey why not?" and grabbed it.I'm not sure why, but I don't get along well with 90's manga. Maybe it's the style (although the girls are really, really, really pretty) but it doesn't sit well with me. However, I was able to tolerate it in this manga.But the "hilarious" antics didn't sway me at all. Although this can maybe fall under the "slice of life" categ [...]

    12. This manga is not for the impatient–seriously, the romance takes a good 6 years of the characters’ lives to get on its feet! For all that, it’s a cute story. The humanity of the characters is both maddening and endearing. And while the plotline is meandering and episodic, it has enough direction to be enjoyable. I must admit, it’s also a pleasant change to read a manga featuring utterly normal, working-class adults. No magic, no aliens, no kids with superpowers, just the everyday joys an [...]

    13. I read the whole series, but I'm just gonna put a review on the first one.I think the three words that sum up the series are awkward, unsure and cute.I first picked up a few books (volume 8-11) in a book sale when I was nine, for £1.50 a volume. In the last five years, I've managed to scout down the whole series. They were my first manga books - and they're currently some of the only ones I'll buy to hold rather than read online.The series holds pride of place in my little black heart - really. [...]

    14. This is one of the first titles that really sucked me into comics. I collected every issue for the first 7 of the 15 series, now I'm rereading them from the beginning--every bit as good as I remember.

    15. I'm indulging in a leisurely re-read of this Rumiko Takahashi series because I own it. Situational comedy. Slice of life. Hints of gag. The cast is memorable because they're so quirky, and the story's pacing is episodic and slooow. Pleasantly nostalgic. I do like it.

    16. Probably the best Manga I have read so far.The writing was well done for a translation,found it hilarious throughout the story.Also what kept me interested was its peek into japanese culture,,,which I love.

    17. As a huge fan of InuYasha and Rumiko Takahashi, I had high expectations. Apparently my expectations were a little too high. Maybe the anime is better. Maybe I just have to read another volume. Not that I really want to after reading that first one

    18. This is an awesome manga written by a great author like Rumiko Takahashi. With a simple plot, the reader finds herself/himself involved in the story, feeling all the ups and downs Yusaku is passing through as if you were him; it's fantastic, I read it in the blink of an eye!! I highly recommend it!

    19. I love Rumiko's art, but I've not a huge fan of the humor of this manga. There's a lot of pervert jokes and I don't really find it funny.

    20. I laughed top to bottom and wept at the end. This was one of my favorite love stories even though it tortured me for fourteen volumes.

    21. I enjoyed the first book of this series, but not as much as I enjoyed Ranma 1/2. I will have to read more.

    22. knockabout funny, also smart and so very, very grownup. i like Takahashi as much as the next girl but if i'd realised maison ikkoku was this good, i'dve dived in long ago.

    23. This is just the first volume and I am not rating the whole series here. I thought it was alright and endearing at times but nothing extraordinary so far.
