Maison Ikkoku めぞん一刻Conclusion

Maison Ikkoku is a romantic comedy series created by mangaka Rumiko Takahashi (manga scans). The first special was broadcast last summer and yesterday on Tokyograph it was announced that the conclusion was to air this summer.
Itoh Misaki (Kiken na Aneki, You’re under Arrest, Densha Otoko) fans get ready for another episode as she stars as Kyoko. Last years special was terrific but really left us hanging for the rest of the story.

Last May, TV Asahi aired a live-action version of the Rumiko Takahashi manga "Maison Ikkoku." The network announced on Thursday it will be coming back for another episode this summer, which is said to be the story's conclusion.

Misaki Ito is returning as Kyoko Otonashi, along with Taiki Nakabayashi as Yusaku Godai and Ikki Sawamura as Yusaku's rival in love, Shun Mitaka. Nana Eikura has been replaced by idol Akina Minami as Kyoko's rival, Kozue Nanao. The story is set one year later, as Yusaku finally loses his ronin status and enters college.

The episode is expected to air during the summer. from Tokyograph
