"I's is an anime (Japanese animated feature) combining drama and romance, complete in two episodes on a single DVD volume. The three I's in the story refer to Iori Hazuki, a beautiful high schooler on the verge of attaining a successful acting career; Ichitaka Seto, a classmate and acquaintance of Iori's who has secretly harbored a crush on her for years; and Itsuki Akaba, Ichitaka's cute friend who has recently returned from abroad. All three are on a remote island (cut off even from the range of cell phones), but will Ichitaka remember his childhood promise to Itsuki, let alone muster the courage to confess his feelings to Iori? When a gang of three murderous, sex-obsessed cutthroats on motorcycles threatens Itsuki, and rising floodwaters put Iori's life at risk, Ichitaka will need all the courage, ingenuity, determination and memories he can muster to save the lives of the women he loves! The result is an emotionally moving love story with a heart-wrenching twist, adapted from the manga by Masakazu Katsura (creator of the popular "Video Girl Ai"). This volume actually contains two DVD discs of the complete two-episode series - one DVD with a 4:3 fullscreen aspect ratio, and one DVD with a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. The audio is Japanese and English, with the option of subtitles. 120 minutes (240 minutes if one counts both discs).

"I was a bit unsure about buying this anime since I have read mixed reviews but now I don't regret it. This set comes with I''s which is basically two OVA episodes which serve and some filler info and I''s Pure which is the main story. It'a a 6 episode long series that deals with the conflict between a guy unable to declare his love for a girl. On top of that his childhood friend arrives who also happens to be another girl and stirs up trouble between the two. Although it's a relatively short series it's done extremely well and has an astounding amount of depth to it. The last episodes are tear-jerkers and the ending leaves you satisfied. I highly recommend this anime to anybody as it won't disappoint!!"
