Every week, toy-shop owner Gan and his cute assistant Ai battled the evil Doronbo gang. The gang led by femme fatale Doronjo and her assistants-pig-nosed muscleman Tonzra and rat-faced mecha genius Boyacky-for pieces of the mystical skull stone, and every week the Doronbo gang failed (usually due to incompetence). Then there was a mushroom cloud, Gan and Ai did their Yatterman dance and the gang regrouped the following week to do it all over again. Written by
I'm still trying to figure out what's going on inside the head of Monte Miike. If there really exist such weird people or if they're just a metaphor of whats inside Miike himself. Very similar to his latter film Battle Royale, two young lovers' affection is spoiled by an endless parade of perverted psychos who never seem to give up. Miike has made another bizarre masterpiece delving once again into lost souls on a journey to the emerald city trying to overcome the wicked witch and the psycho Dokurobe. ...but let me tell you why this movie strikes a chord with the viewer.
As Ebert put it, this is like a Luis Bunuel film done with a Jerry Lewis re-write. I'm a big fan of Bunuel, not so much of Lewis.
