(One episode watched):

It was the odd title which attracted me when a fansub of this old show became available recently. Despite the violent first scene and ominous prologue, it quickly became clear that this was prdominantly a silly, risque sort of show; seeing Akahori Satoru's name as a creator was encouraging as well. At first I wasn't particularly impressed, since the first couple scenes which set up the basic premise seemed pretty stereotypical. But before long wild humor and equally wild animation had me laughing. Particularly noticeable was the wide variety of animation styles (including SD) and clever "photographic" techniques. One thing which definitely got a good laugh out of me was when a Japanese person said "good morning" in English, and the subtitle "Ohayo" appeared--that doesn't happen often!
