Narutaru Shock

Some years ago, I started reading the manga Shadowstar Narutaru. Yesterday, I just finished watching the anime, which aired on Kids Station.

Eek! O_o
Talk about misdirection! The character design is soft and appealing, the opening and closing credits are fun-loving. Man, I wasn't ready for this, especially episode 12. Between the light-hearted credits is some surprisingly nasty psychological and physical violence. This was on Kids Station? They may as well have thrown Gantz in between the credits for Sesame Street.

Thank God my kids weren't watching with me! There's no way I could explain what those kids were doing to each other. I've still got the shivers.
