A female office worker, Shizuka Suzuki (Ayaka Miyoshi, former idol member of Sakura Gakuin), detests musicals but unintentionally gets hypnotized into dancing whenever she hears music. This causes real-life consequences such as very costly property damage. When she can’t find the hypnotist where she first encountered him, she embarks on a road trip to track down him down so that he can reverse the hypnosis. She meets others who join her along the way such as the hypnotist’s former assistant and a street musician.
This is a comedy musical but it’s not your typical musical where nobody bats an eyelash when everybody suddenly bursts into song then returns to the regularly scheduled story as if it was all totally normal. This movie actually shows the difference between the fantastical musical that Shizuka perceives while she uncontrollably sings & dances and the actual bewildered and sometimes horrified reactions of the people in real life. It’s ingenious and hysterical.

I am months late on this one. The League of eXtraordinary Dancers is something I posted a while back and has at times been one of the most popular posts so there are obviously fans and lots of interest. Now you can own seasons 1 & 2 on DVD. Season 3 has already started in the US (or so I’ve read, I don’t live in the US so I can’t actually watch it to see for myself). Amazon’s website sells it in (US and Canada).
Here’s the trailer for Season 3.
