When I was a child my uncle told me that when he was in college, he and his roommates, after a milk puking accident and a series of subsequent lab experiments, had discovered cheese. He told me that the only reason he’s not being paid licensing fees from all over the world, is because filling in the form to file his patent seemed like too much work at the time. In hindsight I can clearly tell this was a lie. I mean, my uncle went to college in the early 80s, but this anime from the late 70s has cheese written all over it. It read more

Few people have heard of Isabelle of Paris, and not without reason.

I'll admit, I did enjoy watching it to an extent, but mostly because I would have to pause the show to recover from gut-busting laughter at just how bad it actually is. There's almost nothing redeemable about this show. I love anime from this period, and rated other anime in a similar vein quite highly, but this one was just the worst. The characters are all either flat or annoying, and the plot and just everything, it's just a mess. The kind of over-the-top dramaticism that is performed read more
