Welcome to my Kimagure Orange Road media site. This page is dedicated towards celebrating the various available and upcoming KOR media available, including CD-ROMs, music CD's, and the new KOR movie. But first, let me thank Eric Law and Itono Taisuke, my "correspondents" back in the Far East for their help in creating this page. They have graciously volunteered images, information, and translations for me. Additional thanks to Eric for "recovering" the lost images of KOR. Other people to acknowledge is Charles Kwong and the Madoka Fan Club Additionally, Itono-san has graciously volunteered to answer any KOR movie question you might have. Drop him a mail at taisuke@itono.com. The last important thing is to support the creators. Check out my For Sale Section in my SuperKOR page for some sources I've found where you can buy your very own KOR "gem" to treasure for yourself!

If you're interested in the Shin KOR novels, then please see my dedicated Shin KOR II novel page.

And Now a Special Treat... (Thanks to Itono-san for the translation!)


From the days I spent with a passion
I was flicked into the interstice between two times

I in the future for me in the past and
I from the past for me in the future
intersect each other in a valley of time-space.

Delicate triangle of pleasant unbalance
had come to pieces,
and you are getting distant from me again.

the summer had begun

The Best of the Rest! (Or the Mystery of the Lost Inserts...)

Here listed is a one-of-a kind collection of scans from the covers of cassette insert cards and CDV's. Briefly produced in 1988, these products have never been reissued since then. That means you can't buy it from the stores today! Long forgotten and seen by only a handful, it has become a lost treasure. Until now. Donning my Indiana Jones hat and cracking my whip, I waded through net swamps and web jungles, and with the help of my trusty sidekick, Sir Eric, we've finally unearthed these lost relics. And here it is. The lost collection for your viewing pleasure. Thanks Eric! (Note: I only have listed the scans which have never been seen before on the net!)
