After that episode...I can't help it...

Third time's a charm...I've finally managed to get past the 3rd episode of Abenobashi Mahou Shoutengai (アベノ橋魔法☆商店街) and I'm glad I have. Abeshou is yet another Gainax production, and fulfils all the criteria required. It's insane, weird and actually has a plot, which may well end in a way that no one would expect (I have three episodes left to go ^^).

However, the most interesting thing about the series is the multitude of other series 'take-offs'. Collapse ) I hate to admit it, given that episode 3 irritates me to no end, but I'm thoroughly enjoying much of Abeshou.
