"Post-Modern" Anime, 4 July 2005
Author: Chung Mo from NYC

Had no clue what was going to happen before I saw it aside from the description on the box. This is not everyone's cup of tea but I enjoyed it immensely. Think of "Space Ghost: Coast to Coast" mixed up with "Fooly Coolly". The whole production is very cheap, not as cheap as the average Adult Swim offering but cheap enough. The characters actually complain about it! Lots of strange animation. Lots of Japanese humor that you'll need to research the extras to understand. The characters are drawn as if there are in their 20s and 30s so captions constantly remind us that they are really 16 years old. Each episode lasts about 10 minutes and essentially nothing happens.

One episode revolves around the gang trying to get to a street fight by cab. The main action is that the toughest guy is secretly car sick and ashamed to admit it. It's very funny for the ten minutes.

Very, very recommended.
