March 2008 New TV Series: Bus Gamer

Link: (Official) (No English sub availible yet)
Genres: Action / Drama
I've watched: 1 episode
Art style: Pretty boy (That's the best one I can come up with...)

Who would like it: If you like Saiyuki series, you'll probably like this one. If you don't like Saiyuki series, could go either way...

Summary: There is a game called "Bus Game" which is run by many large corporations, where they each have a group of three people to either snatch or protect a disc that contains the corporation's trade secrets. This is a story about a team that formed by three complete strangers.

First impression: 3 ~ Too much posing...

Personal comments: This is based off manga work by the author of Saiyuki. Half way through the first episode, it reminded me why I couldn't stand Saiyuki: posing. There are a lot of time and frames are devoted to characters with "cool" posing. It feels more like a illustration of "pretty boy" art than something has a legit plot.
