Last Friday I attended a party and did some file swapping, returning home with 55 gigabytes of anime...all in Japanese without subtitles. *sigh* Oh, well; I have titles and torrenting software.

So I've been going through a few things since Saturday.

Angel Beats! was first and I lucked out with a winner. I would not have expected Purgatory to look like a high school, but it makes a twisted kind of sense. Not quite as bad as Hell, far from Heaven, seems to go on forever...yeah, that's high school. The student council president claims she is not an angel, and a few people believe her; another kid claims to be God, and no one believes him. There are really only two good ways to end a group-in-Purgatory story and I was unsure until the very end which one the series would use.

Moyas[h]imon: Tales of Agriculture is up now; it follows students at an agricultural college, one of whom has the bizarre power to see and talk to microbes. Microbiology infodumps are included reasonably painlessly, with kawaii microbe characters getting speaking parts. (Say, [livejournal.com profile] travelswithkuma, would you mention this to Lisa? She might be amused.) So far so good.

Arakawa Under the Bridge is in the queue now, and apparently crazy homeless Japanese people are more amusing than crazy homeless American people. We'll see.
