A strange mix of the hilariously good and hilariously bad.
Hibiki Amawa needs a job badly, so with the aid of his gun-toting grenade-throwing electrical-engineering paragliding midget biker landlady he disguises himself as a woman to gain employment at a nearby girls school staffed by rabid man haters, on pain of his beloved pet being turned into Inu-Nabe (Dog Stew).
The first four episodes of this OVA had us almost falling on the floor in hysterics, some parts because they are brilliantly funny, others because they are so truly abysmal to be painfully hilarious.
Some of the humour is a little suspect by Western standards, including a pair of comedy peeping toms who spy on the young girls while they are in their underwear and a rather ham fistedly executed crush that one of the girls has on Amawa. By far the most ridiculous though is episode 3 'Selfish Blush Magic', where most of the plot revolves around Amawa's attemps to get the girls to wear buruma (tight gym shorts). This is obviously some sort of cultural fetish and is played quite blatently, ad nausium to the point of sheer excruciation, with none of the characters seemingly able to speak one line without buruma being in it. Some may find this tedious, in our case we were utterly groaning with laughter at the sheer lack of subtlety and trembling with fearful anticipation of the B word, and as one character observes at the end of the episode "It's all thanks to the buruma!"
While I,My,Me Strawberry Eggs has it's faults, I must confess that I haven't laughed so much all year...
