Strange+ and Sin Strange+
(All episodes watched):|
Ha! This was actually pretty funny. The synopsis above was still news to me after the first episode, since the show jumps right into the story (such as it is) without making the premise clear. I got several good laughs out of this first episode even though it was only five or ten minutes long. I will gladly watch any show with such a high laugh-to-time ratio. What the F--- was that bit of artwork at the very ends of episode two?! I had to stare at it for several seconds before I made sense of it (and burst out laughing). The Blue-haired guy (yes, it's a guy) seems to have an obsession with asses; the tactics he used in episode nine made me burst out laughing and brought tears to my eyes, for some strange reason. This is a show where even when I have little idea what's going on, I often times can't help laughing at it. If only a few more anime 'comedies' had writers with anywhere near as much talent as this show does. Some anime have jokes that make you laugh and some have an interesting story, but seldom does one have both; Strange+ and Sin Strange+ (just more of the same) would be among the former. A couple months later I cannot remember much of anything about the plots of individual episodes, except that they made me laugh fairly often.
My favorite line: "You aren't allowed to scream from the bottom of your soul on someone's doorstep!"
