A little surreal but very high quality animation., 7 November 2007
Author: Gordon Cheatham (cheathamg) from California

The stories revolve around a group of people living in the late fifties who get involved with scientific experiments that are based on a science that doesn't really exist, or rather ideas that have been discredited by modern technological advancements, which these people simply ignore. Of course, their enthusiasm causes the experiments to be successful. For them, the etheric current is real. For them, reality can be easily twisted to meet their desires. The art work is marvelous. The action is top notch. The story lines are a little erratic, as might be expected when they lose touch with reality so often, but they're fun. The people are believable and worth caring about. If you are an animae fan you can't go wrong with this.
