A anime adaptation of Masakazu Katsura manga.
Ichitaka Seto is a high school sophomore, not very confident or forthcoming and madly in love with Iori Ashizuki, the class babe, who is working hard toward a career as an actress. He turns into a total dork around her but begins to build a friendship that may go further with his dream girl, until his other childhood friend Itsuki Akiba, a perky tomboy with an open, free and easy attitude, comes back from America. Her family moved over to the States years ago, but when she wants to graduate high school in her old hometown, it's only natural that she should room with old friends the Setos.
Masazaku Katsura's manga I"s is a rerun of his Video Girl Ai without the magic video store, a gentle romance whose three main characters are childhood friends whose names all begin with I. The girls are no mere eye candy, but bright, ambitious young women. Iori is serious enough about her career to question whether she wants a romantic relationship with anyone for a while, and Itsuki wants to be a sculptor and is working hard toward her dream. Teen romance is beautifully rendered both visually and psychogically in all Katsura's love stories, and he understands but rarely overplays the importance of the jiggles, giggles, and wiggles of "fan service." A sequel, I"s Pure (2005), was directed by Mamoru Kanbe. N
