Punch Line

So I recently started watching this new show, Punch Line, and it's... confusing. Not quite Excel Saga or Azumanga Daioh! confusing but still... confusing.

It all starts on a bus, with a hostage drama, where our heroine Strange Juice appears out of nowhere to save the day. Our main character is sitting in the sidelines, until in a fleeting moment he catches a glimpse of this particular heroine's panties and power's up with projectile nosebleed, literally gaining superpowers. He kicks the masked villain way out of the bus, off a bridge, falls into the water with him, is rescued by Strange Juice, and suddenly he's a spirit and someone has taken possession over his body.

Fourth episode in: he is still in his spirit body, and has discovered certain interesting things such as: he can travel back in time, he summons an asteroid that wipes out planet Earth if he gets superpowers in spirit mode, Cinnamon ups his spirit power and he can possess other people too... for short moments of time.

The strange thing about this series, apart from the both strange and stereotypical premises, is that on occasion it's actually packed with emotion. The characters (he learns more and more about them as a spirit entity, free to float through walls and unseen partake in their most well-guarded secrets) all go through their own trials and hardships, shed a tear or two, and in the background a villainous organization and a murderer known as the 'Turtle Man' run rampant. And whomever possessed his body's become a superhero fighting for justice.

What's the plot? What's the punchline? Where will this go and why am I still watching? I have no clue, but so far... it's keeping me entertained!
