Editorial Reviews

The only thing the demented and hyper active ACROSS special agent Excel wants to do is please her supreme lord and commander Ilpalazzo. This, of course, means taking over the entire world one small country at a time. Partnered with the chronically ill Hyatt and thwarted by an army of alien Puchus, the madcap adventures these two go on are random to the extreme. Filled to the brim with anime and pop-culture parodies galore, Excel Saga is the original sugar-high anime hit that doesn’t stop hitting you in the face.

This series was a show that started out in 2002 I saw it with a few college friends back then and thought it was hilarious. I've finally found it and now watch it with new friends and my siblings. Though it is funny it is not recommended for children/teens under 15...simply because of most of the content.

This review petrains to the anime as a whole. I cannot review this set as it has not been released at the time of this review.

This series bassed on the manga by Rikudou Koshi is in my opinion a classic that all manga/anime fans should own along with the originol manga (at the time of this review their are 22 volumes of the manga).

This series follow two teenage girls just out of high school, Excel Excel and Hyatt, who are members of a secreet organization ACROSS (named after a center in fukkuoka in Southern Japan) headed by Lord Ilpallazo (the Ilpalazo is a trendy hotel in Japan) intent on domination. They decide to foucuss their efforts on taking over a city, F-City (I assume refers to Fukuokka) as a step to world domination.

It is loaded with parodies of Japanese manga and anime as well as parodies of american movies and comics.

It is an extreamly hillarious comdey spanning 26 eppisodes.

In my opinion any one who is a fan of manga or anime should own both this anime and the manga. The manga in my opinion is even better and has a different story and more characters, though the anime also has originol characters.

Excel a maniac. That works for the secret Across organization. Across wants to rule the world. There's no freakin' way that can happen with henchmen that are as insane and as dumb as Excel is. Her partner, Hyatt, is equally hopeless. She has a weak constitution, or anemia, or cancer, or something. She's always spitting up blood and passing out for no apparent reason. Despite these mental and physical handicaps they do do their best. Each episode has a different story going on inside the main plot, which doesn't unfold until the very end. I honestly didn't enjoy it until about half way through. If you watch Excel Saga try not to have any preconceptions or expectations before you start. Don't take it seriously. Enjoy it for what it is; if you can figure out what it is. It's actually not all that bad.

This is definitely a must-see for any anime fan. The series doesn't follow the manga's plot, but instead keeps in the sprirt of said manga and parodies anime in general--a gambit that pays off. I'd recommend this series, albeit with a Google search for the cultural notes. I didn't catch all the references the first few times I saw it, but I still enjoyed the series anyway.

Excel Saga has been around long enough for you to know about it; so I am leaving this review simplistic and guessing you want to know about this release and not the actual show. This is a passable re-release HOWEVER it is missing the cultural tags which could be found in all previous releases. These tags are essential to understanding much of the humor that is inherent in the Saga. So do not buy this rendition unless you want to miss out on what really makes this show move from mediocre to great.

Excel Saga was the very first anime I bought back in 2002 and is still my most favorite slapstick comedy anime. To me this is also like the Japans version of South Park because it makes fun of our cultures both Japans and America. Every episode will have you guessing what going to happen next and make you cry and laugh to where you might be shooting sparks out your noise.
