About This Book

His and Her Circumstances (aka: Kare Kano; Kareshi Kanojo no Jijo), is a manga by Masami Tsuda and a 26 episode TV anime series, directed by Hideaki Anno of Gainax. The English anime is titled His and Her Circumstances (a direct translation of the Japanese title) and the English manga, published by TokyoPop, is titled Kare Kano, which has been a popular abbreviation of the title by the fans. The manga series is still continuing on LaLa magazine in Japan.

The main character is Yukino Miyazawa, a Japanese high school freshman who is the envy of her classmates because of her good grades and immaculate appearance. However, this is just a charade she maintains to win praise — at home, she is a total slob, who lets her appearance, her family, and everything else slide so she can study relentlessly and thus maintain her grades. She is threatened in this position by Soichiro Arima, a handsome young man who also gets great grades and challenges Yukino for class leadership positions. She vows to destroy him, but after some misunderstandings they fall in love instead. The series follows their relationship as they're tested by school, family problems, and friends.

The anime was notable in being the first anime GAINAX did that was not based on its own in-house manga. As is to be expected by an anime directed by Hideaki Anno, the style is extremely vivid, original and at times unpredictable. E.g., at some point the voice-actors are starting to discuss about the plot. In another episode, papercut-figures are replacing the usual animation.
