Anime

Dororon Enma-kun

It's a Go Nagai story.

It's from 1973.

They've remade it almost untouched - it's still set in 1973, with 1973 sensibilities (i.e. none whatsoever).

The artwork and animation are surprisingly good; there are some lovely scenes amid all the craziness.  Very much old school, but taking full advantage of modern digital production.

It's kind of awesome, and at the same time kind of unwatchable.  That's a difficult combination to navigate, and whether you like it or loathe it will depend very much on your personal tastes.  You'll know which way you fall in the first 15 minutes; it's not a complex show and if you hate it right away it's unlikely to win you over.  But worth a shot; it's not like anything else I've seen recently.

Personally I give it three kappas out of four, will watch again.
