I really like it.

it's ... hmmm... the style of humour is rather similar to kodocha... yet not.

as for story...

some people have what is called an 'Alice' .. which is a sort of special power. like... being able to create fire ... or extreme charisma... (examples taken from the first episode)...

these people are extremely rare... so Japan (and supposedly most other countries as well) has created a special school for people with these abilities.
and if you have an ability like that... you *must* enter the school, which is an escelator type school. meaning.. you'll be there for quite a while.
also.. you can't meet anyone from the outside while you're there...
(but your family get a rather hefty sum of cash in exchange)
the school's name? Alice Gakuen.

Now put yourselves in the shoes of Mikan.
she's fighting to keep her old school from being torn down... but the town she lives in has no more money...
suddenly she recieves a letter by Turtlemail from her best friend Hotaru who has to go away to Alice Gakuen... and all of a sudden, the town has enough money to keep the school open...

what to do? ... go to Tokyo and find Hotaru, of course. =^_^=

I don't really think there are too many spoilers in that... do you?
no worries

Default Re: Gakuen Alice

just watched this show in it's entirety.
it's not all that bad.
something about the production reminded me of Prince of Tennis.
anyway a solid 3/5
