Excel Saga is a wacky anime series that was produced by J.C. Staff and directed by Shinichi Watanabe. The show is known for its outrageous humor, chaotic plot, and parodies of various anime and pop culture references. The series follows the story of Excel, a hyperactive and optimistic girl who dreams of becoming a part of ACROSS, an evil organization led by the mysterious Lord Il Palazzo. Her mission is to help ACROSS take over the city of Fukuoka and ultimately the world.

Excel's partner in crime is Hyatt, a mysterious girl who often falls ill and dies suddenly. Together, the two of them go on a series of bizarre adventures, encountering various strange characters and organizations along the way.
