For those who liked Paradise Kiss, you might be interested in a fansub that's out for a prequel for that show, Gokinjo Monogatari.

You may remember in Paradise Kiss that the little pink haired girl, Miwako, had an older sister named Mikako who had her own clothing company (for which Yukari did some modeling work). Mikako had attended the same design school around which Paradise Kiss is centered. Gokinjo Monogatari is about Mikako and her time at the school, as well as her relationship with her neighbor, Tsutomu. The show was made ten years ago, but the same voice actors were used for Mikako and Tsutomu in both Gokinjo and Paradise Kiss.

Personally I found a lot of the stylistic elements in Paradise Kiss heavy handed and out of place. However, after seeing the first episode of Gokinjo, I see where a lot of those ideas came from. In particular, the weird animals that impose themselves on the transitions in Parakiss are present in a much more subtle manner in Gokinjo. I think if I had seen Gokinjo first, I would have understood their presence almost immediately.

So far IY-F fansubs has subbed one episode of the show and put up a torrent, which you can find on Tokyo Toshokan. After that one episode, I already like the show. Hopefully they'll stick with it and sub the entire series.
