Storyline

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 SUBWAY CINEMA

Teletubby level content + slight irony + sexual content + teenage love
29 March 2011 | by eskil-jSee all my reviews

I usually fancy Japanese films. This one was an unexpectedly big disappointment. The storyline is like what you normally see in a 25min children's TV-show. The acting is very much like teletubby's. Very colourfull, cute figures push each other, and sit down with a fart. A little bit of irony-spice lightens it up: The happy song about the ever strong and wonderful times for the hero's is performed, while the hero's don't enjoy life. There are just a few moments of it, though. There's a little bit of first innocent love in the film. And then there's several heavy sexual hints, like a robot getting orgasm and cum'ing (and telling about it), while it's attacked.

Most of the content and the story looks like it's aimed at small children. It doesn't have the sub-layer aimed at the adults, like in most family/children's films. But then it has a layer of sexual jokes, making it unsuitable for small children.

I haven't seen anything this bad for a long time.
