I was bored at work today (yet again). So I decided to browse wikipedia and found this...

quote:
Although Mercury may have passed in the real world, he appears as a recurring character in the Japanese anime series Sakigake!! Cromartie High!. Wearing only long brown pants with red suspenders he is known to the main characters only as "Freddie". He does not speak despite moments of him singing (although his voice is not audible) and is sometimes seen riding around on a giant black horse. Some people wonder if he understands Japanese. He also is normally introduced by a harmonious guitar riff.


Has anyone seen this anime? Is it worth checking out? Thanks.

The anime is ok, generally decent except for a few episodes which are truly wonderful.

At the very least, each episode is like 15 min long, so you won't waste too much time watching it.

I'd say actually that the 3rd episode is the best I've seen out of the 20 or so I've seen, because it contains stuff I didn't see in the manga and used sound to great effect... which you simply can't do in manga.

I like it. I've only seen volume 1 though. The humor is in that random nonsensical realm that Cartoon Network shorts often go, but there's also a lot of cultural humor that makes it a little hard to follow.

Yes.

The episodes are short, but they're pretty funny and CHIYO PAPA does the voice of a character in it.

Its hilarious in the fact that its extremely weird and doesn't take itself seriously. I'd recommend watching it if you have the chance.

I watched some episodes and this series gave me the willies real hard. I didn't like it at all, but I really enjoyed Freddie's appearances, undoubtely the best of the series.

Thanks all. I'll definitely check it out sometime. An anime series where Freddie Mercury has a reoccuring role just seems too cool to pass up. Unfortunately, it's licensed so I guess bitorrent is out of the question. Damn what series isn't licensed these days?
