This Ugly Yet Beautiful World

I got a request for my opinion of this series, and two episodes in, I figured I'd give a first impression. For a series full of weird stuff, it's managed to be amazingly slice-of-life so far. There's one kid who seems to have some idea of what's going on, and everyone else is just coping as best they can. the characters are the pretty typical Gainax bunch - junior high kids, I believe, and a woman who acts pretty much like Misato but looks more like Ritsuko. And then there's the story... from the first episode, it looked like it was gearing up to be a rehash of Devilman - vaguely sexual situations, naked girls, and a main character who transforms into a monster to fight other monsters. The second episode was considerably more Chobits as the new girl, Hikari, tries to fit in with the rest of the cast. It's quite entertaining, and I expect there will be even more random leaps of style.

If the teacher turns out to be a huge-breasted pervert, though, I may have to quit watching and destroy the DVDs completely. Just saying.
