"I love walls... isn't this a lovely wall?"
11 February 2004 | by (Huntington, NY) – See all my reviews

I'm usually not a fan of animae, but I do love this quirky, very funny animated adventure comedy from Japan. A lab mishap turns a household cockroach into a mean spirited inner city high school principal. Some of his dialog is just wonderful (Cockroach Principal to Teacher asking why he clings to walls when he walks `I love walls. This is such a lovely wall.') The Cockroach is pitted against a super school girl with extreme crime fighting powers and a weakness for charlie-horses. Totally out of left field and great fun because of it.
