A nice series, but, the visuals are what really make it stand out.
It's a typical school story series, but, what sets it apart is its bizarrely humorous scripts and, especially, its visuals. Borrowing heavily from the Terry Gilliam animation style, no one moves in 3 dimensions! It's like a world inhabited by humanoid crabs. Photos digitally (I'm guessing.) manipulated make up the cast. So, it's entirely possible that everyone we see is the actual voice being used. Regardless, this blend of the real with the sublime sets the style of the series, and that visual execution is what is most superb about it.
In short, in today's dreg of children's series, Angela is welcomingly refreshing. Adults will probably like it more. (I'm 26.)
