Aishiteru Ze baby is a fantastic anime, by far my favorite of all time. This series will cause a few well deserved tears. Its got none of the love triangle crap and a really fantastic ending. If you love the romance genre, this might not be your favorite but it is definitely not one to pass up. If you can find this anime, watch it.
