[New April 2010] Yojouhan Shinwa Takei

Japanese title: 四畳半神話大系
Info: (official) http://yojouhan.noitamina.tv/
[edit] Apparently, the English translation of this anime is called "The Tatami Galaxy", it seems that funimation has picked up the distribution right and it's being shown on hulu.
Watch online: http://www.hulu.com/the-tatami-galaxy
Drama? / Supernatual?
I've watched: 1 episode

Summary: Some dude is having a weird encounter with a self-proclaimed deity at a mysterious ramen stand.

First impression score: 85 ~ Intriguing

Personal comments: This is one of the newest noitamina, which brought us excellent animes like Honey and Clover, Nodame Cantabile, Mononoke, Moyashimon, Library Wars, Eden of the East. It definitely inherited the unconventional approach of noitamina--everything, from art to the method of storytelling are all quite strange. The animation is in a very rough style, and the 90% of the talking is first person narration. Very intriguing indeed.

I've found the English sub under a different translated name: The Tatami Galaxy. It's being streamed by hulu. I've modified my original post to include a direct link to it.
