Trivia

The second opening sequence, from episode 14 onward, also features an homage to (or imitation of) the work of an earlier animator. Specifically, some of the swirling abstract shapes in the background, preceding the appearance of the main title logo, are lifted directly from "Studie Nr. 7," a piece of experimental animation crafted in 1931 by the German artist Oskar Fischinger.

One of the top anime of 05
13 April 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I can assume that this one won't be for everyone, in fact I have tried to get a few friends to watch this one but can't seem to tear them away from Bleach and Naruto. But if you get the opportunity, I highly recommend watching this as it is a really special series. The storyline follows a group of friends who are enrolled in and art college and the day to day complexity of adolescence and life in general. Every character is wonderfully thought out and are way more complex that they may initially seem. It really helps to give them a life of their own and although many characters follow the archetype of anime they really become memorable through their humanity. The main character is especially well realized, using voice over to share his thoughts and feelings with the viewer. It isn't an entirely serious show though as it is at turns hilariously witty and just plain silly fun. The show is riddled with pop culture references like the obligatory Star Wars jokes, digs at other anime series and even Bill Gates. It also joins the ranks of other shows like Azumanga Daioh that treat there setting of modern day Japan with love and respect, from summer festivals to little nuances that are often hard for westerners to understand but delightful all the same. This series made me laugh, cry, and really think about my own life in ways that previously only Haibane Renmei could, though it would be wrong to compare the two. Oh and the first seasons EP is wonderfully weird.
