Story and Art by Rumiko Takahashi
"The woman I love burns with jealousy, leaps to conclusions, cries, and turns to ice, but when she laughs, the world is mine." Such are Yusaku Godai`s feelings for Kyoko Otonashi, the beautiful manager of Maison Ikkoku--the ramshackle boarding house he has lived in since his days as a struggling student. Over the years, his love for Kyoko has grown, and nothing fate threw in his way could keep him from pursuing Kyoko`s affections. Will she finally reciprocate Godai`s heartfelt sentiments, or has he simply wasted his life pining for a woman beyond his reach? All endings lead to new beginnings in this unforgettable conclusion to Rumiko Takahashi`s Maison Ikkoku, one of the most beloved of all manga series.
