I read about this on 4chan and ended up getting the DVD. I can appreciate this movie for it's sheer fuckupness and ambition. Imagine power rangers fan fiction made by a perverted mind on a lot of drugs & I think you'll get the idea. It's a complicated mix of a lot of crazy ideas. Some of the scenes are baffling and the characters kind of all speak in a type of coded language of internet hyperbole. Some scenes are hilarious and won me over. Its sort of like the Japanese superhero clichés are explored in a psychological and fetishistic context. Closer to a weird lowbrow art book, or a visual poem, than your average indie film, I can honestly say it's one of the strangest movies I've seen. For that alone, it deserves some credit.
