I've heard some varied opinions on Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi, and am trying to decide whether it's worth my time to pick this up for the watching.
In terms of anime, I particularly like the style of Miyazaki, and found films such as Metropolis to be entertaining, but Akira to be slightly... unusual. Never got into Neon Genesis, which is why I can't make any decent assumptions on whether MSA would be a good follow-up to one of its creators' earlier series.
So, with the above preferences highlighted... give me some ideas here. Worth the viewing? Worth owning? Thanks in advance!
