To me, Kimagure Orange Road is THE anime rom-com. It’s funny, nostalgic (I imagine it already felt nostalgic right when it premiered in the 1980s), heartfelt, and despite using ESP to advance the plot, has lead characters whose thoughts, actions, and emotions all feel impossibly real. Plus, its soundtrack, J-pop though it may be, is so good it would make Yoko Kanno proud.
