Storyline

High schooler Yuta Iridatsu has experienced "astral projection" i.e. his spirit has been separated from his body. He woke up in a mansion named Koraikan and met a cat spirit named Chiranosuke, who told him "You must find the Sacred Tome of Koraikan in order to return to your physical body." While searching through corridors of Koraikan, Yuta bumped into underpants of its female residents, and doing so would, eh, create some big trouble for planet Earth. Written by AnimeNewsNetwork

Surreal fun.

This show is absolutely fantastic, and I would highly recommend it. This is the kind of show where any information could be a spoiler, but I'm still going to try to keep my review spoiler-free. I'd recommend not reading this review though and just watching the show.

Visuals - This show has some of the best animation I've seen. Its wonderfully stylized, the character and camera movements are fluid, and the character designs are all great. There are genuinely impressive moving shots in here that make me think that computer animation has been incorporated, but it blends seamlessly into the 2D animation that I can't tell where its being used or when if at all. Spinning shots around characters and 3D environments are frequent in this show and the way its utilized is breathtaking. I had no idea that you could do this with 2D animation.

Story - Though it may not seem like it from the first episode, this show develops into an interesting drama/mystery story. Though the panties and chaos and absurdity remains throughout the show, its definitely toned down as the runtime goes on. Though this show is very bizarre, pretty much all of the story threads are neatly tied together in a satisfying knot by the final episode.

Characters - I don't want to say a whole lot, but all of the characters end up fleshed out and interesting. The villains (for the most part) are understandable, and all the motivations make sense. Character relationships are explored in between the absurdity and everything from the character designs make these characters feel like real people. I didn't mention it yet, but the writing and dialogue in this show is fantastic.

Audio - The voice acting is great, as well as the overall sound design. One of the best things about this show is the theme song. I love it. Any sequences told through visuals or music are great.
