Eccentric Family

No, my family's not eccentric (well, the rest of my family isn't... your not-humble-at-all correspondent excepted!)

I'm always hesitant to say things like "anime of the season" because, frankly, everyone's mileage may vary. But I don't think I enjoyed any of the anime that I've watched this season quite so thoroughly as this one. Very simple character art combined with extremely realistic backgrounds, a cast that delivers comedy without being comprised of a series of moe tropes, and a solid story arc with a few surprising and well-executed twists along the way.

Oh, it's weird - thoroughly weird, though not randomly in the sense that something like Excel Saga was. Does a good job of keeping you surprised without breaking its own internal consistency.

If you've got any patience for the odd, do give it a try.
