Glad to see Spin City getting some attention. I’ll probably pick this up whenever it’s released, just to support an under-appreciated show.

Sunday at a flea market I saw a woman who for real had teeth like the one girl in this show - but worse, some of them stuck just about straight out.

I have the manga this is derived from: Hotori Days.

I LOVE the episode where Hotori “died” and went to “heaven”. Absolutely hilarious!

This shows the most wickedly bizarre ending theme of any anime I’ve yet heard.

There is a video on Youtube that shows the actual voice actresses in maid outfits doing the song (Maids Sanjou), but faking the instruments, just like those stupid french model videos Robert Palmer made back in the mid-1980s. You should get a good look at the one doing the voice for Haribara Harue…you WILL be shocked.
Oh, go to VH-1 Classic and look it up, if you aren’t old enough to remember…
