I must say that this is one of the funniest series I have seen in a while. Whith this volume, the plot continues to develop and the pieces begin to fit together. All 3 episodes on this DVD reveal a little more about this strange and surreal world that Sasshi and Arumi now find themselves in. The conection between Sasshi, Arumi, Eutus and Ms. Mune Mune is also revealed. I highly recomend this to any fan of anime that is looking for a good laugh (well it has a 17+ rating so I guess not for just anyone)
The 4th and final volume of "Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi - There's No Place Like Home" will be released on April 20th 2004. (a appropriate day to release the final volume of this crazy series, if you know what I'm talking about). If you havn't started to watch "Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi" what are you waiting for!! It's only 4 Volumes so the damage to your wallet is minimal unlike colecting some of the other 6 to 8 volume anime series. Just buy them, you wont be disapointed, I promise!
Excel Saga, FLCL, or Burn Up Excess....

The parody continues. Sasshi and Arumi can't seem to find their way home. Now that Sasshi knows that Grandpa Masa is dead, he has even more reason to roam around these alternate realities forever. The young couple visits a fairytale land, a war zone and a world built off the memories of movies Sasshi liked. things are as wacky as ever. Arumi is fed up with jumping all over the place. Sasshi seems to have no other choice but to go back home. Hopefully, his mystic training will be enough to undo Grandpa's death.
This is one of the most off the wall anime series I've ever seen. It parodies everything you can think of. In one aspect, it's completely unpredictable. At the same time it's very predictable. The ending is exactly what you imagine that it will be. Even so, if you liked the series up through the 1st 2 volumes, you'll probably like this one.
