"Bein' human, havin' your health... that's the most important thing." - Arumi Asahina Try telling that to twelve-year-old Sasshi Imamiya. He's lost his home, lost the toy collection that defined his very geekdom, and he's about to lose his best friend, Arumi. Reality is closing in on him. That is, until reality decides to take a vacation. An extended vacation. Suddenly, Arumi and Sasshi find themselves in a world like their own... only not. And as they try to fight their way back to the real world, they'll face menacing mushrooms, big-breasted space pirates, killer kung-fu fighters, a tripped-out transvestite, a sorcerer who seems to be in some sort of midlife crisis... and that's just the beginning!
Hannah's comments: I don't know what to say. In a way, I felt this series really sucked. No connection to what I expected; shopping. Only some stories in different worlds. But so crazy, and I guess, so very typical Japanese sense of humour. I didn't think the animation of the characters was so good. I've seen much better. Background music, so,so. The series is recommended ONLY if you really want to see wacked,adult things and have questions left in your head afterwards. In the anime magasine, Newtype, the number of September -05, there is a big article about the Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi.
