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
The area where the heroes fight at the start of the movie is based on the Shibuya area of Tokyo. There are signs for 107 and MMV which are based on the famous 109 shopping centre and the HMV music store. Also the toyshop that the heroes work at is in an area that looks like the Takadanobaba area of Tokyo. See more »
Was I fooled by seeing the name of Takashi Miike on the sleeve of this DVD. i thought, well, we are going to have a hell of a time seeing bodies explode and other gory shots but was I wrong. This was just an animae made into a feature. And it is done in a typical Japanese style with all the flying things and close ups. Did I like it, yes, because I don't have problems with their culture and because it was so full of effects that it even remind me of Lazy Town, yes, that child thing. It's a weird flick full of CGI effects and no gore at all but you can see the love through it in the way it was made for this flick. If you think it's going to be a typical Miike than just leave it. If you have no problem with things said above, watch it.
