Maison Ikkoku (めぞん一刻 Mezon Ikkoku) is an anime produced by Studio Deen, adapted from the manga of the same name by Rumiko Takahashi.

Synopsis

Yusaku Godai, a bumbling college student, is in love with his landlady, Kyoko Otonashi. Otonashi, while attracted to Godai, is hesitant, having lost her first husband in the not-too-distant past. Godai schemes to win Otonashi's heart, all the while battling off his rival, Shun Mitaka, and fending off his lunatic neighbors.

Dubbing History

The anime was originally licensed by Viz Media in 1994, and later dubbed the series, releasing it across several two-episode VHS releases. Viz cancelled the dub after 36 episodes due to underwhelming sales, and continued releasing the series sub-only until volume 32, without finishing the series.

Starting on June 1, 2003, Viz began releasing the series on DVD. On November 11, 2004, the fourth volume was released along with a new English dub of the previously undubbed episodes. Due to the passage of time, most of the voice actors were replaced, with only two of the main cast members still being active with Ocean Productions' dubs.
