    Trivia: There are 2 entries in the trivia list – like these:

    • Originally, Kyoko and Godai's relationship wasn't going to be the basis of the story. Rather, Rumiko Takahashi, the creator of the comic the series is based on, was going to end the storyline early on and continue on with a series of other storylines centering around the building's other occupants. However, the romance storyline proved so popular it became the basis for the entire series in both comic and television form.
