Kyou Kara Ore Wa!!
(One episode watched):|
The first few amusing scenes of this OVA immediately reminded me of Sakigake! Cromartie Koukou, what with the way it pokes fun at the delinquent subculture of Japan. Having been made in 1992, it can't be accused of being a copycat--indeed, I wondered if the author of Cromartie might have gotten some of the ideas from this show. If you enjoyed Cromartie, you'll surely enjoy KKOW. Hell, if you enjoy laughing (and who doesn't), you'll enjoy this. Actually, as this first episode progresses (and it's over an hour long) there is a lot of brawling, punching, clubbing, and I began to wonder if it had been a mistake to describe this as a comedy; but the humor returns towards the end. So, not as good as I had thought at first. Also, the animation is unexceptional--this is 15 years old, after all. Still, I wouldn't mind watching the remainder of the series (the ED sequence shows amusing clips, presumably from future episodes), and I'm disappointed to learn that apparently only one of the ten episodes has been fansubbed into English (though it seems that the entire series has been dubbed into Italian!).
