It’s exactly what you think it is. And that’s a good thing.

  1. I wish you were still allowed to use Careless Whisper as Suave’s theme song.

  2. Nice stinger, lol.

  3. 3:58 Um, did the speed lines start a little too soon?

  4. This reminds me of an anime I saw forever ago, about a transforming school girl that uses the secret techniques of butt martial arts to fight evil. The only episode I watched involved her fighting an off brand Ninja Turtles. Anyone have any clue what this was called?

    • You are thinking about Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman. Which yes, I say comes pretty close to
      Kekko Kamen territory. It has its own brand of weird too. Like, the off brand Ninja Turtles and the Terminator shows up at one point.

      Kekko Kamen is one of the early Go Nagai anime I watch when I was first getting into Go Nagai stuff. It is oddly enjoyable. I’ve shared it with quite a few friends and either they enjoy the humor or I’ve broke their brains.

      I even got the live action box set of Kekko Kamen at one point. Though I never finished watching them. They are much more soft-core porn than comedy and thus a lot less entertaining to me.

  5. Huh, another crossover with the NC? Seems like fun.

  6. Hurry up and do Tenchi Forever, or Full metal Panic, How about Those who hunt Elves, or do a discussion of sub vs dub and both sides of the line have their perfect examples (Love Hina Sub, well fan sub, was 1000x the show the dub was, but Macross, one of the staples of Anime has almost always been made specifically for an English Dub) but in the end while both have their place the notion that one is better than the other in general is crap. But seriously, do Tenchi Forever already!

  7. Ah, Go Nagai. Shine on, you crazy diamond.

  8. Hmm. Will this see Nagai fans coming out of the closet to admit they enjoy his absurd offerings? Far as I can tell, most of his fans are pretty open about it.

  9. Ah, no mention of her finisher being named the Muffocation attack?

  10. I see a lot of hints for a review I’ve been waiting for for a loooooong time…

  11. Sage are you trying to tell me your shocked about terrible proportions…in a Go Nagai inspired work? I mean I love the guy but god damn can he not draw anyone over the age of 13 without their upper torso looking like a dorito to save his goddamn life. Like you said the bad animation in Kekko Kamen seems like it attributes to the hokey jokey nature of the whole thing.

  12. I would kill for that Mystic knights of Oingo Boingo shirt 🙂

  13. That jester guy reminds me of Klytus from Flash Gordon.

  14. This is really funny
    But why was only this girl targeted?
    And why did no one fired this pervs from the school?

  15. This is one of the series where the sheer absurdity keeps it funny. They made a live action movie which wasn’t that bad. They also made a male version, Pervert Mask Forbidden Superhero. That was one was kinda… meh.
