    Man, it kinda really sucks that a classic like this doesn’t pull in the views – but hey, at least you enjoyed it. And yeah, _the pillows_ are an excellent band – one of the makers of the show really pushed to use their music as the soundtrack, and it was an excellent move. Everything about this show lives rent-free in my brain, and has for over ten years.

    As for it not having an over-arcing plot, that’s complete nonsense. The episodes are pre-occupied with themselves, sure, but there’s a plot that starts with episode one, and builds to a climax in episode six. They’re each as inter-connected as you noticed these two are. I think maybe the reviewer got swept up in the ‘acid-trip’ aspect.

    This is a series about puberty, basically, explained through the medium of guitar battles and mech fights, and a lot of the imagery gets… uh… difficult to parse, shall we say. On top of that, occassionally mad art and tone shifts like the manga interlude will just _happen,_ so I don’t blame people for not being able to keep up, or feeling like the plot gets lost along the way.
