Did any of you get all of our crazy inside jokes? One day we should have a contest where we say every inside joke we can think of and give a prize to whoever gets them all.
But yeah, Kage Kara Mamoru is THE stereotypical default anime. Ninjas, magic, school, cute animals, wacky bad guys, bright colors, big eyes, small mouth it's got everything. Can anyone help us think of other anime that fit the stereotype so perfectly?
And I am paranoid about spoiling anything, so I give you some warning.
One thing that I hope that they will continue to do is to not pull any punches. I think the show feels more realistic that way. Though I think that the show may give a bit too much initiative to the Japanese public, and the power of beauracracy to block essential actions in time of crisis; but it also makes the punch hurt more, which is not a bad thing.
