We review the 2001 anime TV series Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, a zany coming of age comedy from famed anime studio Gainax and director / writer Hiroyuki Yamaga, about two young teenage friends, Sasshi and Arumi, on a slapstick filled series of misadventures through parallel worlds, dished out as hilarious spoofs of young Sasshi’s geeky obsessions, from Dragon Quest to Dating Sims, Giant Robots to Prehistoric Monsters, to Martial Arts, Sci-Fi, Hollywood movies and more.
