To pay for an epic blunder, three yakuza brothers are forced to alter their bodies, form a girl group and break into the underground J-Pop idol scene.
The overall score might not make much sense due to some of the scores I gave, but at least for me when I had finished it, it made sense. This show is hilarious, that's all that really matters. Each episode is its own thing so there isn't really much of an overall story, hence the score. Only thing that really matters is that it's hilarious.
This had a lot of potential for laughs, and I'll admit I laughed a lot for the first half of the first episode just because of how funny and unexpected it was. However, the original premise was not enough to carry the whole anime between extremely lazy animation and audio that was very hard to understand in the english dub (and the subtitles were white on white almost constantly) (I was watching it on Netflix) and while it had a lot of potential- it was a lot of disappointment to me as a whole. Possibly because to me, it was a let down. The manga might be better, so I might try that, but I didn't get very far with the anime.
So. If you are 25 and younger. If you were raised with Naruto, One Piece,Toriko and other flashy anime... This is not the anime for you. BUT: If I say Rupin. Golgo13. Riding Bean. Akagi. Magi. Sancutary and Crying Freeman....this is the anime for you. This is old school humor that purposely puts on a new wave veneer and mocks itself. If you like Yakuza movies and anime, this pokes fun at every single troupe. Every single one and it is hilarious. Also. Even iF you don't watch the whole series, you have to watch Episode #31, Honesty. You will understand that this is the most hilarious argument in yakuza anime history. It's so good, gurrrrrl. Like you have the secret marriage, the murderous enka singer and the yakuza mob boss going toe to toe. Daisuke ONO was my favorite VO actor for YEARS, GURL. YEARS. Now, after that argument and the tasty saltiness? Keiji FUJIWARA takes the cake. After hearing his sassiness in Dr. Stone and his brutal ass in Gokudols? He makes this anime. He should not be second string, but honestly, his small parts are the important glue that makes this whole series amazing. And he plays off of Kimiko SAITOU FLAWLESSLY. I WOULD PAY TO HAVE THEM PERFORM A MAFIA ANIME. LIKE. ALL. THE. MONEYS.
