New anime...

We checked out the first episode of Cinderella Boy. It's by Monkey Punch, of Lupin fame, and it shows. It's about a pair of private investigators, Ranma and Lela. In the first episode we see them sneak into the offices of a casino. They figure out the true purpose of the casino and are chased off by gun-toting thugs.

The style of the series is a curious mix of the goofyness of the Irresponsible Captain Tylor, the jazzy easy-going style of Cowboy Bebop and the humour of Lupin. Too bad about the bad drawing style and crappy animation. Also, Lela's bossom is just a tad too big and her skirt just a tad too short...
We'll watch a few episodes to see where it goes (the show's schtick is rather humorous), but don't get your hopes up too high.
