As part of my ongoing quest to watch all NoitaminA shows (a highly enjoyable endeavor), I most recently have been working on Hakaba Kitarou. To my utter delight, the opening theme music was Denki Groove's "Mononoke Dance," a song which is one of my all time Denki favs. Not only that, but the lyrics suit the mood of the show. I'd call the animation style grotesque, in a dark, strange, twisted, and grodie sort of way. The cast of characters are quirkly and somewhat sordid with fluid motives, and the plot is full of turns and sudden dead ends like any (good?) comedy. Delightful fun, although ultimtely not anything poignant or revolutionary. 3.5/5
