Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya Review

I've added a preview of the Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, by Nagaro Tanigawa, produced by Kyoto Animation. I think that fans of FLCL will love the madness of MoHS, and those that enjoy satire will too. Just remember... what Suzumiya-san wants, Suzumiya-san gets... no matter who she has to blackmail!

Furi Kuri Reviewed

I've added a new review for FLCL (Furi Kuri) in the Anime Reviews section. Watch out for Haruko, she likes to use human skulls for guitar-smashing practice.

Furi Kuri (OVA, 2000)

Overview

Somewhere out there is a little yellow Vespa scooter that's got more miles on it than the Starship Enterprise, and riding it is a madwoman who likes to do Hendrix impersonations on people's foreheads. If you're having trouble picturing the two together, don't worry, because I can almost promise you that the effect is intended - FLCL doesn't make sense until you've watched all the way through it at least three times - and then only if you're really, really paying attention. Despite numerous attempts by friends to get me to watch FLCL, and the easy availability thanks to CN's surprisingly lightly edited version, I actually avoided watching Furi Kuri for a fair while. For all outward appearances, after all, it was in the same category of 'humor' as shows like Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Home Movies, Southpark - indeed, FLCL even has a few scenes that directly mime Southpark's 'animation' - and so on. When I finally DID get around to watching, though, I was pleasantly surprised.
