Hilarious., 2 September 2002
Author: xparasoulx

The story is that three warriors are stranded in a foreign land or a fantasy land or something and they must piece together the 5 parts of an ancient book so that they can return to Japan. The funny part is that the 5 parts of the book are written on the bodies of 5 elves throughout the land. Naturally, they must travel the land stripping elves until they find the 5 parts.

Two of the main characters are hot females and the other one is an unbelievably stupid muscle-man who won 6 consecutive martial arts tournaments. He provides most of the laughs in the show, because about 4 times an episode he tries to get elves to strip naked and he is just a very stupid man in general.

The show is like a parody of fantasy/hentai anime, but is actually a very good show outside of just stripping elves. I recommend this to anyone who enjoys anime, because they are sure to see the humor in it. I think it is available in 2 volumes, 6 episodes a piece, 12 episodes total, so it would not be too costly to purchase the series.
