Kimagure Orange Road
Pictures of the main Characters and a summer of them
Kyosuke is just another average teenager,
so it would seem - his family's just moved to town, and he wants to settle
in, make some friends, and enjoy a nice, quiet life in this new home. Unfortunately,
this is unlikely, because he comes from a family of ESPers! Every time
the "family secret" has been revealed, the Kasugas have had to move, but
Kyosuke has found a special reason to stay in this town.
While counting steps on a long flight
of stairs near his new home, Kyosuke sees, and catches, a red straw hat
flying over his head. He hears "Nice catch!", and turns to see to Madoka,
whose beauty, charm, and sweetness immediately wins his heart! After
a playful argument on how many steps there are (he say 100, she says 99),
Kyosuke offers a compromise - 99.5 steps! As Madoka leaves, he says to
her she's forgetting her hat, to which she replies, "Keep it! It looks
good on you!"
When they first meet,
Kyosuke doesn't make a good impression on Hikaru, a cheerful but quick-tempered
tomboyish girl, who thinks he's a bit of a wimp. However, when she sees
him effortlessly make an impossible basketball shot by using his ESPer
"Power" (when he doesn't think anyone's looking), she is amazed, and she
immediately decides that he'd make an ideal boyfriend! She then showers
her Sempai (also known as "Darling") with gifts, stuffs him with five-stack
bentos (box lunches), and demontrates her devotion with the patented
"Hikaru flying neck tackle", all of which Kyosuke reluctantly endures.
Kyosuke is a very indecisive fellow,
so his attention tends to swing back and forth between Madoka and Hikaru,
but this is only because he doesn't want to hurt one or the other. He truly
cares for both of them, but for different reasons - he admires and appreciates
Hikaru's earnest and unswaying loyalty to him, but he also realizes he
has feelings for Madoka that he knows go beyond just friendship.
