The DVD Empire retail website lists a 240-minute I''s DVD box set for release by Viz Media on March 24. Two anime series — the two-episode I''s series (2002) and the six-volume I''s Pure series (2005) — adapted Masakazu Katsura's original romantic manga. Katsura had also created the Video Girl Ai, DNA², and Wingman manga, and all three were adapted into anime. Viz Media published the 15 volumes of the manga from 2005 to 2007.
The story revolves around an ordinary high school boy, Ichitaka, who has a crush on Iori, the most popular girl in his class. He gets a chance to work with her on the Freshman Welcoming Ceremony Committee — but just then, his childhood “girlfriend,” Itsuki, returns from America and lives in his house.
