    Not The Ending I Hoped For... by BEastman December 6, 2004 - 8:31 PM PST

    The core story seems to have been shifted from Kaoru and Aoi to their friends that live with them in the mansion in the second season. I was really wanting their relationship to blossom and mature, but it didn't really, and they seem no further along in their relationship than they were at the end of the first season. Maybe the relationship with their friends is the core storyline and I'm missing the film's intention, but I really wanted to see Kaoru and Aoi turn into a real couple. This could turn into a never-ending saga at this rate.

    (This review refers to Ai Yori Aoshi - Enishi Vol. 3)

    Ai Yori Aoshi is a class act from the beginning, taking the harem-comedy form and exploiting it to tell a beautiful and touching story of perfect love and its many rewards, and with stunning visual beauty and sometimes haunting music.

    Nonetheless, while working my way through it, I was frequently disappointed (and even sometimes appalled) by the dumbness and vulgarity of the comedy that accompanied the exquisite central romance. Eventually I understood that this was on purpose, to dramatize the cultural gap between the traditionally-raised Kaori and Aoi, and the "modern" people who surrounded them.

    If you've already seen some of the second season "Enishi" you may have felt let down, and suspected the show wasn't really going anywhere further. Well, it is, but probably not to where you expected ... instead it ends on a quieter and more sublime note that reveals the true importance of everything that came before in a very special way.

    Do not miss this truly beautiful finish to a truly beautiful story.
