The second broadcast season of Ai Yori Aoshi picks up two years after childhood sweethearts Aoi and Kaoru met again and set up their odd ménage in one of Aoi's family mansions. Kaoru is now a graduate student; Chika, Taeko's bouncy cousin, has joined the household, adding to the number of girls with innocent crushes on Kaoru. Nothing else has changed: Miyabi runs the show, Aoi cheerfully cooks and cleans, Taeko breaks more than she tidies, and Tina sponges off them. The filmmakers never succeed in reconciling the wistful, treacly romance between Aoi and Kaoru with the many fan service shots of panties, breasts, etc., and viewers may find themselves longing for a little of the gleeful mischief of Love Hina or Tenchi Muyo. The extras include the mini-episode "Miyuki," in which Aoi appears to bachelor Kaoru as Santa Claus. (Rated 13 and older: nudity, risqué humor) --Charles Solomon

The 2nd season of Ai Yori Aoshi started out good! Actually, so good in fact that it gives you that feeling of reuniting all the fun you had with the first season. Aoi's ukeness is still there. Chika's cuteness is still there. Miyabi's nagginess is still there. Hell, even Tina's booze drinking is still there! ^o^

This 13 episode season has some of the cutest moments, and I love seeing Aoi and Kaoru share intimate moments. It shows how strong love can be, even in the modern world of angst. Though is it just me, or does Enishi have lots more fan service than before? Very Love Hina like, well sorta! Tina Foster is so freaking hilarious, and hearing her in the dub is a treat. Who doesn't love a hyper american fondling boobs *o* She's my idol! LOL

The dubbing isint that bad either! They perfected Aoi's submissive tone, Taeko's clumsy tone and Tina's southern USA tone convinced me. Though some of the secondary characters sounded whacked. Both Pioneer(Geneon) ADV Films, etc. never had a perfect cast of VAs, but rarely get close.

I truely recommend it to those who loved the original season <3 Though I don't recommend it to Love Hina fans, don't expect Kaoru to get knocked 1,000 feet in the air and still survive @o@ Anyway The opening "Takaramono" and closing "I do" are wonderful! Yoko Ishida's Takaramono is just as memorable as Towa no Hana.

I'm a legend in the Otaku world, and I recommend this anime! Whoever doesn't thinks so, well too bad! Cliches are cliches, and Ai Yori Aoshi Enishi lives up to it's 24 episode original.

Ai Yori Aoshi Enishi is a very well-written love story, continued from the first season. Although some of the translations are a bit literal, the story is very well-written (I would suggest watching it with Japanese audio and English subtitles). Overall, a very good Anime for the die-hard Anime fan. There are quite a few sexual innuendos, but what would be the fun without them?

I absolutely adore the ai yori yoshi series with its sappy mushy storyline of two starcrossed fiances (kaoru&aoi)and a houseful of hopeful girls wanting to catch kaoru's eye. i personally have never seen the enshi series but from what i get from the review above i think it will be an awsome sequel to the great fanservicing series ai yori aoshi!

Greetings;

Years back, I had rented the ai yori aoshi series, liked it well enough and always just sort of figured I would pick them up someday. Someday was within the last month or so. Enishi however was something else altogether. Never saw it when I rented the other, wasn't available at the time. Figured I would pick it up as the second season and all, but couldn't for the life of me figure out what made the individual dvd's normal or limited editions. I looked over a couple of the reviews and largely found people talking about the show, which is fine-look at me, sharing my life story and all. What I found after ultimatly having to buy the whole-3 disk set-limited edition-twice I might add, was the following:

Volume 1 has the dvd, normal enough. Has a box meant to hold the three volumes to the set. Is meant to come with a box containing an unassembled Aoi-chan figurine. Unassembled, but still painted. Is the first of five figurines.

Volume 2 has the second dvd, again, normal. Also comes with a box meant to contain Unassembled Taeko and Mayu figurines

Volume 3 has the third dvd, no different from the normal edition, as with the others. Also comes with the box of unassembled figurines, this time of Chika and Tina.

All figurines are by Yujin. Just remember to make sure that if you order the limited editions, that you are getting what you ordered. I ordered a used like new copy of the first volume, had the box meant to hold the three dvd's(in cases) and the first dvd but no figurine. Had to re-order.

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.

In volume 1, all the residents of the Sakuraba home return, along with Chika. They all have fun making friends, going on trips, playing tennis, and looking for ghosts. This DVD gives you a sense of relief that nothing has changed and the characters you love so much are here to stay.

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.
