2142: Pollution and climate change wiped out most of Earth's population. Ecoban city is built to withstand this. Suppression results in revolt. A childhood couple find each other as adults on opposing sides.
Aachi and Ssipak is one film I've been wanting to see for a while now, and lemme just say "Wahoo!" for it satisfied my expectations. But not for the poopiness, but for the insane amount of violence and nods to famous film. Well, the poopiness is also a plus.
Story revolves around poop being the only(?) resource for energy, addictive Popsicles called Juicy-bars which you're rewarded with if you make a poop, and lots of little mutants who use Juicy-Bars as their means of provision. Oh, you can throw in Aachi and Ssipak if you want, but the real enjoyment comes from the violence you watch whenever the Diaper Gang is on screen. There is also a main villain who leads the Diaper Gang, but at times you seem to root for him, which was a nice touch. And then there is Geko, one of the best fighting machines you'll ever see. He's only killing little blue freaks, but hell, those lil blue freaks carry uzi's and machine guns, and Geko takes care of them without a stutter.
Aachi and Ssipak was 2/3rds awesome violence, and the other third is slightly tedious story-filler. And weirdly, that's when A and S are on screen. Sure they're in some of the fights, but mainly, they're second fiddles to the Villain and Geko, and all the little blue freaks known as the Diaper Gang.
Overall though, this is a welcome addition to any fan of animation who likes the weird and violent as well. I dug the heck outta this film for it's unique animation style, which seemed to combine the show DUCKMAN and the film AKIRA. And with a unique story, good characters and great violence, this is one flick I'm sure I'll be adding to my collection very soon.
