Although primarily working as a vase painter in Ancient Greece, Demetrios is berated for his lack of resolve and ability to keep a cool head in a crisis. One day, he is suddenly struck by lightning and transported to Tokyo in 1964, the first year Japan hosted the Summer Olympics.

More than accommodated by a family who simply excuses him as a harmless foreigner, Demetrios ends up bringing the knowledge he has gained from the modern era to his own time period whenever he returns after being zapped by lightning. As he repeatedly travels between the two eras, Demetrios learns to impress his fellow villagers and begins to stand up for himself—all just in time to become stronger and organize and participate in his own Olympics back at home.

Sound: I really liked all the ending songs, they provided their own comedic value outside the story of the episode.

Characters: Being a comedy this is a strong point of the show, I particularly liked the Spartans and was less fond of the Eleians

Be warned - This review is the epitome of subjective. I'm purely rating this based off my personal enjoyment of this series.

So, I've been meaning to read the manga for a while, never got around to it. In late september my friend and I, on our weekly anime-watching-session, gave in to our curiosity, because the preview picture of this anime has been intriguing us for weeks at that point. So we decided to just try one episode, to see what exactly this anime was, and were surprised it was five minutes long. And then, without realising it, we ended up watching all sixteen? seventeen? episodes ...

Mixed Feelings
Extra Olympia Kyklos is something I wanted to check out because of the mix of mediums of each episode. This anime is a relatively short viewing, about 2-2½ hours, and it's nice to sit back and watch something REALLY different for once.

The songs at the ends of episodes are funny and pleasantly informative. Just thinking about how much research was put into this show, and seeing how much footage they shot for this, just adds just shows everyone's compassion to make this show a reality.

However, maybe it's not your cup of tea, since each episode follows the same formula and possibly something that doesn't ...
