This anime has:
- Headless re-animated chickens
- Main character has funny conversations…in her head!
- A mute sidekick with a dark sense of humor
- Bloody loaves of bread…who can talk!
- quirky sense of humor
- reproducing fairies
I JUST started watching a simulcast (this means it’s airing episodes as they air in Japan, making them super new!) on crunchyroll called “Humanity Has Declined.”
There have only been two episodes so far, but they are pretty awesome. Totally surreal, funny, and bizarre, the main character is a liason on earth for the humans who are still living there (apparently in version of earth there are very few humans left) and the fairies. The fairies are really cute and smart with magical powers and they prefer to be paid in candy!
Anyhoo, the first two episodes feature headless re-animated chickens, fairies who can reproduce when they are happy, a girl with no hair who is able to re-grow it back in a day (and finds that it thinks she’s it’s “master” –I really can’t explain this!), and a strange mute who reads this really morbid story that he thinks is funny:
Basically I find myself saying “WHAT?!” and giggling a lot at the absurdities and strange comments (just wait until episode two –if you thought David Lynch was strange….) It’s hard to say if this is going to be the anime of the season just yet – it seems very promising though!
If you like unusual anime, you’ll love this. It’s different from any anime I’ve seen plot-wise, character wise and even style wise! Plus, I swear the ending song was written by the same people who did the ending song on Azumanga Daioh (tell me if I’m right!)

The frisky posted this awesome review of our emotibud earbud set by Emotible:-)
You already wear your heart on your sleeve, so why not wear your emotions on your ears? Check out Emotibuds, little plastic emoticon charms that affix to the outside of your earbuds. With four different colors and expressions, thereâ€™s an option to match your mood or outfit. Don the yellow pair with a laughing face when youâ€™re listening to Sheryl Crowâ€™s â€œAll I Wanna Do.â€ If youâ€™re in a lovestruck mood, put on the pink Emotibuds with surprised faces and blast the Cardigansâ€™ â€œLovefool.â€ Of course, there are days when you need to zone out to songs like Janet Jacksonâ€™s â€œI Get So Lonely.â€ At least now you wonâ€™t have to do it alone. [$18 for all four, ShanaLogic.com]

(I’m a little late doing this review because the movie came out in 2004 but I didn’t get to see it until this morning!)
Cutie Honey is the perfect movie to see with friends/family if you want to smile, laugh and generally have an awesome time!
What is Cutie Honey?
Cutie Honey is a live action anime film made by the guy who directed one of my favorite animes Neon Genesis Evangelion. It’s based on a manga from the 70′s and has been re-made into a live action movie. (He’s also made other live action movies that I’ve seen and liked)
Cutie Honey Plot:
It’s about a girl who can take on many different forms due to her heart shaped choker but is looking for friendship and love.Â She is thrown into a battle against an evil team of villains called “Panther Claw” who have kidnapped her uncle and killed her father in order to obtain her coveted choker.
Why you should see it:
You don’t have to be super into anime to enjoy this film! It’s sort of like a cult-classic in it’s low budget action scenes and ridiculous over-the-top acting and it’s just sooooo fun to watch! The actors/actresses are awesome in their ability to replicate animated characters even though it’s super-cheesy! If you DO happen to watch lots of anime, you’ll get a kick out of the way the live action actors/actresses imitate sound effects of eating, fighting and laughing the way animated characters do. But experience with anime is NOT a requirement — you only need a good sense of humor!
If you are in the mood for something light, funny and totally kawaii, see this movie!!
