By far the strangest (and greatest!) anime ever created.
The words "strange" and "weird" are understatements for Excel Saga, the popular anime from ADV films, and that isn't necessarily a bad thing. I have only read 2 volumes of the manga and have only seen the first volume of the anime and I am already working on my Excel cosplay outfit, so I guess it's safe to say that "hillarious" and "excellent" are understatements as well.
Excel Saga is essentially about two unpaid teenagers, Excel ("First name Excel, last name Excel or just Excel for short!") and a martian princess named Hyatt, working for a man named Il Palazzo. They all are members of ACROSS, an idealogical organization whose goal is to conquer the city of F. Excel is a hyper air-headed blonde who talks way too much (so much, in fact, that the woman who played her, Jessica Cavello wore out her vocal cords mid-way through Excel Saga and had to be replaced.). She dies at least once an episode (a few times from Il Palazzo killing her for being way too hyper and enthusiastic) and will do anything for Il Palazzo. Hyatt, on the other hand, is almost exactly opposite, except for the dying, and is sometimes too quiet to hear. She came from mars and ended up in ACROSS when the Puuchuu, an adorable alien race's, ship crashed on earth and Hyatt floated down to ACROSS's underground headquarters via massive flood. Unfortunately, she has an unknown condition and is perhaps too delicate. She dies more than Excel (at a rate of at least 4 deaths an episode) and is liked more by Il Palazzo than Excel.
Excel and Hyatt live in an apartment building in room 204 (well, at least I think). Next to them live Watanabe, Iwata, and Sumiyoshi, who can utterly not stand each other. (Well, at least Watanabe can't stand Iwata and Sumiyoshi.)They argue about every little thing from rent, to girls, to how they are supposed to survive for the next month. Thing is Watanabe really really likes Hyatt to the point where he almost kissed he while she lay helpless on the ground out cold.
So, in conclusion Excel Saga's a really really great anime. I would only recommend this to older teens and adults because of constant profanity and sexual situations. otherwise, I give it 5 out of 5 stars. Excellent!
