A Guide to Kimagure Orange Road

Version 1.3
January 14, 1995

[Since v1.2] Reworked timelines and chronology. Revised FAQ #16, #19 and #74, added #78 and #79.

[Foreword] This Guide is designed to give fans a general knowledge of Kimagure Orange Road, to provide answers to many common and some uncommon questions, and for those who dare, some of the insights and symbols of the animated series. It began as the mumblings of a bunch of KOR fans through e-mails, then it turned into a FAQ of 700 lines and 65 entries. Six months and a FAQ later, it is in its current form: four parts, 2800+ lines, and 135KB. In the process, numerous fans have helped greatly in making this possible: Harold Ancell, Sean Camanyag, Robert Carragher, Howard Chan, Herbert Fung, Quincy Huoh, Charles Kwong, Anthony Lau, Eugene Lee, Jerry Lee, Roderick Lee, Egan Loo, Tony Moy, Eric Shen, Stephen Tsai, Edward Weinstein, and everyone who have provided comments, corrections and support. I thank them all. And of course, a deep bow to Matsumoto Izumi for starting the wildfire. Any comments, corrections, additions, updates, praises, flames, gifts, donations, mail bombs and leftover pizzas, please send to: Wei Xiong wxiong@ux4.cso.uiuc.edu A...Ayuakwa..
