''Kare Kano'' originated as a manga by {{Shoujo}} author Masami Tsuda, later being adapted to anime by Creator/StudioGainax, directed by Creator/HideakiAnno, of ''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Evangelion]]'' fame. The anime began as a faithful adaptation of the manga, if somewhat quirkier in style. Halfway through, the anime's story goes in a completely different direction from the manga, which eventually led to its [[GainaxEnding inconclusive]] ending. Meanwhile, the manga continued for several more years, exploring the several parallel lives of supporting characters, as well as the main characters' pasts (and even their families' pasts), finally concluding with its 21st volume.

Known in English as '''His & Her Circumstances''' (although the Creator/{{Tokyopop}} manga uses the Japanese short title). The full Japanese title is '''''Kare'''shi '''Kano'''jo no Jijou'', which means just "His and Her Circumstances".

* AdaptationDistillation: As with ''Manga/KodomoNoOmocha'', the anime team blended in enough screwball comedy to keep the [[{{Shoujo}} romantic aspects]] from getting too [[TastesLikeDiabetes saccharine]].
** However, Masami Tsuda herself was… rather less than pleased. See the Trivia page for more info.

** Hurt Yukino and Souichirou will retaliate - in plain sight of the school adviser and without consequence.
** Yukino also memorably snaps into berserk mode, when [[spoiler:Tsubasa jealously destroys a picture of her taken from Arima's student ID]].


Added DiffLines:

* KarmaHoudini: Arima ''punched'' a stranger for pushing Yukino when she tried to diffuse a fight during a school trip. The school adviser was watching -- and pretended he was going blind or senile.
