    Kaiba

    For all ye despairing (like me) about the recent slump in interesting animated series from Japan, Kaiba looks very very promising, it's equal parts gorgeous, cute, mysterious and occasionally totally fucked up (I'm thinking episode 2 for those who have seen).

    Hmm, interesting. I'll keep an eye out. Need something since I got so completely let down by the last episode of Ergo Proxy.

    I'm not sure how I feel about the ultra-simplistic character animation on top of truly lush backgrounds to this degree. It usually works for me, but this is kinda extreme. Does the animation continue in that vein, or is it pretty dynamic?

    It's that stylised all the way through, but I think the blend works when you watch the series itself. I have a particular fondness for this style, but beyond that I think the character designs themselves are fantastically handled.

    I tried to torrent this to no avail, but I'm heading to Japantown tomorrow, so maybe I'll get lucky.
