Stories the director himself said they didn't dare put in the anime!
Q: What happens when you try to act like an anime character in real life? A: EXCEL SAGA. Two groups of neighbors in an apartment building lead secret lives. One thinks they're trying to take over the city of Fukuoka. The other thinks they're trying to defend it. Only their bosses, would-be conqueror Lord Il Palazzo and obsessed bureaucrat Dr. Kabapu, know the truth behind this increasingly dangerous private game... Too bad neither will let their underlings in on it!
Signs and wonders mark the escalation of the battle for Fukuoka! But can even giant visions in the sky awaken the jaded citizens to the struggle--or Dr. Kabapu's revelations convince his own staff that he's not more of a loony than they thought? And will the final sign be the appearance of the most feared individual in all of EXCEL SAGA, the University of Illinois' own Dr. Miwa Rengaya, the Courtney Love of science...and Shiouji's mother?
