Mekakucity Actors - The closest thing to a Vocaloid Anime!?

Mekakucity Actors is an anime based on a story from a series of Vocaloid songs, known as the Kagerou Project. It gets pretty interesting right from the first episode so I'm definitely going to follow it this season. I actually haven't listened to the songs and now I'm hesitant because I don't want to spoil the story for myself so early on.



I also don't want to spoil the first episode for anyone who has yet to watch it, but lets just say that something extremely rare happens to Shintaro, shut-in protagonist on a reluctant shopping trip to replace his broken keyboard. The lead female of the show, Takane is actually a computer program, who of course looks a little like Hatsune Miku and she inhabits Shintaro's computer, almost like a virus trying to get him to buy unusual products. She accompanies him on his outing, via his mobile phone.... and perhaps might be what saves him from the situation he finds himself in!

The show is animated by Shaft, so there's head tilts and scenery porn like no tomorrow. Just the way I like it! XD
