If I have anything to say about this anime, it is PLEASE, I'M BEGGING YOU, READ THE CONTINUATION IN THE MANGA. Although there are only 12 episodes, the anime manages to build great characters. These characters evolve even more in the manga. It pains me several time to see the main couple meeting up not knowing the identity of the other. Hence, I cry thinking of their reaction when they find out the truth. One drawback is the length of the anime. There are many characters and not enough time to explore them. For a 90s anime, the anime manages to build the heroine excellently-cool, badass, independent but simple, fragile and gentle at heart. I will not spoil, so please, this anime is a great stepping stone for the manga which is a diamond.
