Editorial Reviews

What a time for surprises for all of the friends! Kaoru and Aoi go on a date together and spend there time reminiscing and enjoying each other's company. The two end up spending the evening at a hotel . . . Later, the residents of the Sakuraba mansion decide to go to a spa resort and Kaoru winds up seeing more than he was meant to! Digital cameras can be so much fun - the gang decide to take some pictures of themselves, dressing up in costumes and outfits that turn out to be very fun. Tina then takes a trip back home to America, leaving the rest of the household worried and missing her . . . will she ever come back?

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites May 7, 2005
Format:DVD
I am too familiar with and well aware of the areas in which Ai Yori Aoshi may be criticized. And on an intellectual level I would agree. There is absolutely no purpose to Tina's overtly perverse and rude behavior, which was for all intent a grossly distorted crack at American conduct. Taeko may have been more amiable had the character not been a stereotypical clumsy but well-meaning goof of a beauty who is the most endowed among the cast. And Aoi is so subservient, deferring her own wishes, ambitions and aspirations to a weakling that had abandoned her in the first place that it defies reality and suspends disbelief. And its most significant failing may be said to be its dishonesty. To begin with exposition of a profound romantic premise that after four episodes takes not just a detour, but a full 180-degree turn to become something less and driven by slapstick and fanservice is just deceitful and misleading. As a romantic drama, the title is guilty of all its shortcomings.

But what if the original intent had not been to create a romantic drama, but to sell a product that is highly popular among male demographics? And what if success in this business venture was to be found in illustrated literature that falls under a genre in which a harem was not only common, but fundamental? Moreover, what if author and artist Fumizuki Kou was a skilled and gifted writer able to conceive strong situations that test his characters and thus move his readers? And, that despite his need to eat and pay rent or the mortgage, his respect for his own artistry forbids him from producing entirely unsubstantial material, that he devises a plan to bring about warmth, richness, and dimension to the product.

3.0 out of 5 stars The End - ? August 2, 2006
Format:DVD
Ai Yori Aoshi Enishi: Destiny contains the last four episodes in the Enishi anime series that was a sequel to the longer series, Ai Yori Aoshi. Destiny ends much as the original series ended. We see a little resolution of a couple of dilemmas - namely, Aoi and Kaoru's relationship, and Tina's crush on Kaoru. But it is all feel-good - with no conflict, drama, or tension.

There is not much fan service in this final episode. There is a single panty shot of Chika-chan in a cheerleading outfit. Mostly, the disc is slow-paced and relaxing.

I do hope the series continues with another installment. Extras include the singer of the opening and ending songs performing live at an Amime Expo in the U.S.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enishi's Unending End July 17, 2009
Format:DVD
I must admit that when I originally watched the entire Ai Yori Aoshi series ( including the second season, Enishi ), I too felt disappointed and a little let down at what seems at first to be a very open ending. But following a second run-through, I better appreciate what is its essentially laid-back "slice-of-life" approach. Although there are few real surprises in this final volume of the series, it nicely wraps the entire gang up and returns to the examination of basic feelings of the principal characters.

The simultaneous strength and weakness of Ai Yori Aoshi is its basis in what was at the time an ongoing manga series of the same name. Since it remains faithful to its original source, it shares the same general structure, with only a little tinkering and shifting of plot elements. That means it bounces between the sentimentality of the Aoi/Kaoru relationship and the often-manic actions of supporting characters, particularly Tina, Taeko, and Chika, with no real conventional "end" in sight. Happily, in this final volume, we tune down the frenetic behaviour and return to the strong personal stories that made the first volume of the first season such a delight; and if we don't exactly get a "final solution" in the form of wedding bells ( other than in Kaoru's dreams ) or anything else really overt, we at least discover a satisfactory stopping point.

For Aoi and Kaoru, the first episode on this disc provides an opportunity for potential "consummation" and to "take their relationship to the next level"; this is as good as it's ever going to get - for us or them - or needs to. Having finally gotten that out of the way, we turn to the intricacies of the relationships within their "extended family" in the mansion.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tidy ending November 26, 2012
By KevinB
Format:DVD
Ai Yori Aoshi is the story of 2 childhood friends whose arranged marriage is nullified after Kaoru leaves his family. Years later his former betrothed, Aoi,finds him and still intends to marry him. He is skeptical at first, but soon comes around after seeing that she is sweet and pure of heart. She's pretty much the perfect young lady. Her family is against her stubborn intention to stay with Kaoru. In order to avoid scandal, they set them up in a huge summer home and call Kaoru a tenant and Aoi the landlord. Along with Aoi's cartaker, and several other college friends, the young couple begins their journey together. Everyday they get to know each other better and love each other more. As this happens, they have a harder time keeping their relationship a secret.

This is a great anime series. Enishi is the 2nd season of Ai Yori Aoshi. It isn't much different from season 1. It's more of the same stuff, but that's okay. It stays interesting and lots of fun. It is hard to compare this series to another. It's closest to Clannad I think. Just not nearly as emotional, and there is a bit more fan service. Enishi is shorter than the 1st season, it's only 12 episodes. It also doesn't really resolve anything. The series ends with everything much the as it was in the beginning of the show with everyone living together happily. It's okay though, that's really how you want it to end. Rather than hearts being broken and people drifting apart like in real life, everybody lives happily ever after under the same roof. Ai Yori Aoshi Enishi is a great series any way that you look at it. It's one you'll always look back upon with fond memories.
