The city of Ikebukuro has become the victim of a series of robberies by a group utilizing robot suits. It's up to The Counter-Demon Seed Special Agent Headquarters, run by five average guys, to come up with a solution. Though he was drunk at the time, Chief Hattori submitted a proposal and it was approved! The plan? Look for an idol to combat the enemy and have her fight for the city using a special armor suit designed by "some random doctor." From twenty-eight people chosen at random, they finally decided upon a young pretty blond female because of her cute appearance and superhuman strength. Now all she has to do is defeat the robbers and become an idol and everything will turn out right, right?!
Dated, but not terrible parody. Made by the same people as, and including several references to, Patlabor. Features a very strong girl who ventures to both save the day with the cops and be an idol. But which is her heart really set on?!?!?!?Story 6/10Very light-weight story with no message or intrigue or suspense or... anything, really. Was probably quite funny about 20 years ago, but has lost most of its charm by now. Certainly a few laughs in there, and not a waste of time. However, perhaps there's more to be appreciated in terms of Retro-Anime Values than anything particularly good.Animation 5/10Pretty shit, even for the time.Sound 4/10Pretty shit, even for the time. The "Super Idol" songs, and all other songs in fact, suck balls. American dub is bad, Japanese dub is fine.Characters 6/10The characters have no time to develop, nor do they give much indication of needing it. Nevertheless, the familiar police-squad-type members are enjoyable enough and benefit from being stereotypes with prefixed personalities developed elsewhere.Overall 6/10One to watch if you have run out of other stuff or just want something vacantly enjoyable. Or if you've had a few beers or something. Or if you are slow.
