The Supergal is hilarious!
2 October 2002 | by (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

My only copy is a laserdisk to VHS copy acquired 13 years ago, Japanese language only, and it's STILL one of my favorite anime!

The Rumik World anthology is worth getting. Rumiko is in many ways the Rod Serling of anime, capable of telling humorous, tender, and terrifying tales. If only Cartoon Network would bring her stuff over, instead of the lesser stuff they're showing.

A couple of notes--

The name change was forced by Warner Communications, who thought it too close to their character "Supergirl."

This is the first animated film to feature "out-takes." These were deliberately crafted for the video, as real out-takes are almost impossible. In fact, the closing credits flubs begins with realistic goofs (like hands caught when the frame is photographed, cels left out or reversed, etc.), then progresses to the kind of mistakes that can plague a real film (malfunctioning props, obstinate doors, missed blocking, etc.). These things are hilarious! Obviously the fame of her idea spread, as fake out-takes are now a regular part of productions from studios like Pixar.
