All The World's a Stage

I just got through episode eight of Kaleido Star and I'm really enjoying it a lot. It's the story of Naekino Sora, a 16 year old girl who has come to America to join the Kaleido Stage. The Stage does all kinds of performances that seem to center around acrobatics. The show itself is one of those shows that is just fun to watch. I don't know that there is anything really groundbreaking about it, but it is just done very well. GONZO did the animation and it is some of their best work yet. Most of the time it's hard to believe it's all done on computer. It's also interesting seeing the range they have with their work when comparing it to other shows they are doing currently, like Last Exile. Oh yeah, and there's this strage supernatural creature in the show called the Fool of the Stage or something like that. Only Sora can see him and he seems to be there mostly to try and see her showering.

Anyways, check it out. I'm sure it will be showing up in the states soon enough since I believe ADV helped in producing it.
