I have in the last few minutes finished this most peculiar title, having imported this R4 release. My statements will broadly reflect those of this writer: Kaiba is a story filled, perhaps saturated, with stylistic quirks and puzzling abnormalities, though its most rousing elements dwindle and wane a numerous twists and double-crossings dominate its final chapter. Whilst the many sudden machinations surrounding the series' titular character perhaps offset its romantic merits to a greater degree than in the case of Eureka Seven, to choose an example to wit, we can still find moments of bliss, of melancholy, and dare I say of warped beauty amongst this uneven sea of ameobal figures and thick, sketched lines.

I've been a few months since I've watched it and I still think about it occasionally - it's something you can just dip into. The artistic and often crazy designs are striking, the world feels at first very foreign and the music somewhat experimental. Kaiba is a wonderous series that will indeed benefit from a repeat viewing down the road - I just hope others pick it up!

Say, has anyone over there been sent copies of Dennou Coil for review?

No, but we're just about ready to request another batch of titles for review. Any particular reason?

Also, my review would be "Can't review, too busy watching Denno Coil" just so you know Wink

It's on my list of things I want to import from Australia (although I already have the Japanese DVDs). For one thing, I'm wondering what the subtitles are like - the subs used for the videos available through the iOS App bugged me at times.
I'm also simply curious at to what other people think of the series since it is one of my favourites.
