I don't know what I am talking about...

Furikuri is a 6 episode OVA series and movie from Gainax (the creators of Neon Genesis Evangelion, Wings of Honneamise, Nadia, Gunbuster, Otaku no Video etc.).

Set in a present day like place in a city called Mabase. It more or less centers around a schoolboy called Naota, and all the unlikely events that occur in and around him. I won't summarize the plot here because I'm trying to avoid spoilers. I visit sites like this to see whether a series is worth watching or not, so I assume others do the same.

I can't help but enjoy seeing a show that doesn't have the usual dull characters and situations. The plot is weird and certainly prompts one to continue watching to see what the hell is going on. It's stuck somewhere between serious, seriously bizarre and seriously comedic, and somehow it works really well (as you would expect from Gainax).

The animation is awesome, it uses good clean digital effects while maintaining a nice painted cel look. I do hate it when CG looks like CG, which it thankfully doesn't in this. The occasional 3D animation is seamlessly integrated to do some really nice shots.
