Stories the director himself said they didn't dare put in the anime! R to L (Japanese Style). Guess who's back...back again...Excel's back...tell a friend! But of course, there are still two Excels...and still two bombs rigged to blow ILL headquarters sky-high! Even though her memory of her old self has returned, Excel's recollection of her time as Teriha remains unclear...yet contains clues she and Elgala will need as they target the impostor. Plus there's no welcome back for either of them--just the same pursuit and poverty. Fortunately, if there's one thing ACROSS agents know how to do, it's hustle for cash--with a gig as shrine maidens that's simply sacrilicious! The inspiration for the outrageous hit anime series, the anime's director told ANIMERICA magazine that the manga contains scenes he knew he'd never get away with! EXCEL SAGA is a charm offensive that's guaranteed to offend. Today the city--tomorrow, the world! That's the plan of Il Palazzo, the haughty, pretty-boy leader of ACROSS, a secret society based somewhere deep beneath the streets and sewers of Fukuoka, Japan. It's a good thing he's starting small, because ACROSS begins its bid for global domination with just two members--Il Palazzo and Excel, the teenaged girl smitten with him. After setting up house in a cheap apartment, Il Palazzo explains that the budget for world conquest and the budget for room and board must regrettably be kept separate. Their neighbors are a trio of regular guys, whom they hope will all overlook the irregularities of their comings and goings; not to mention the sound of screams, struggles, and gasoline explosions!
