Did You Know?

The music over the closing credits is a bouncy bubblegum pop arrangement (by Kohei Tanaka) with nonsense lyrics to the main musical motifs of several Beethoven Symphonies.See more »

Silly, silly anime..., 22 March 2000
Author: Arnold Kim from Tenafly, New Jersey

This video is just an absolute hoot. Overall, next to the Slayers: Dragonslave and the vastly underrated Shinesman OAV dub, this is the most belly-achingly silly anime tape I've ever seen. From the self absorbed part time dragon slayer, part time teen idol Dick Saucer, to he ever so cute Mink, to the adorably silly Super Deformed modes, to Dug Fin complaining about how they cut out his part in the first episode, this one will just have you rolling on the floor.

And that's not even getting to the danceably silly, nutty, kooky, ending theme song. It's Beethoven in a way you've never heard before. I've heard that the only point of the lyrics was to match the melody and rhythm of the song, and I believe that! Absolutely silly.
