As a devout Christian, the naive Mari Amachi joins the Perfect Religion Academy, only to find her roommate Saori Minami kidnapped shortly after! Praying to her own God, Buddha himself appears before her offering her the powers of Gautaman – with them, she can transform into a magical girl who uses the power of her sumo belt to battle the evil and the perverse Black Buddha gang. As the sumo loincloth tightens, her strength increases and not even a wedgie from Darth Veda can defeat her! Will bearing her butt be too much for the innocent Mari, or will she accept her fate and use her derriere for justice?

Okay, I don't know what I was expecting from an anime with a name like Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman, but there is one thing I know. Watching this anime was probably the most confusing 45 minutes of my life. I only watched this because I am on a crusade of sorts to watch anything and everything that Tomokazu Seki has voiced a character in because I am a huge fan of his work. And let me tell you, it wasn't worth it. I will forever regret watching this. STORY:The story is just weird. Basically the main character Mari is a normal high school student, but with a secret. She's a magical girl. But not just any magical girl. She's BUTT ATTACK PUNISHER GIRL GAUTAMAN and she gets her powers from Buddha. Despite the name she does not actually attack with her butt or really do anything all that Buddha-related, though I suppose the latter is a good thing because the series is already insulting enough to religion that it is. She basically just does normal fighting, but her butt is bare while she does it. Oh and we haven't even gotten to the whopper of a "plot twist" yet--the boy she's crushing on, one Ryou Tobishima, who is voiced by Tomokazu Seki and therefore is the entire reason I am in this mess, is the leader of the bad guy group. Thing is this twist is super obvious and WAY heavy-handed. Also, it's hella awkward because neither of the two find out. And the plot takes a turn to the bizarre after she straight up KILLS him while they're both in their 'secret identity' getups and then wonders why he didnt show up for their date after. Side note, by the end of the show she is still convinced he just transferred schools. Anyway, that's only the first part of the story, and it only gets more cringeworthy from there. I would really rather not describe it, all you need to know is at least five minutes of it involve tentacles. It might not be as bad if it were actually written well, but the script is even more bizarre than the premise. This terrible story was clearly only written as an excuse to animate "sexy" things. Because honestly without the shit story padding it out, this would probably just be a bad porno. Honestly it may already count as a bad porno, it certainly gets explicit at times, I'm pretty sure the only thing that is standing between this dung heap and bad porno status is actual sex. ANIMATION:The animation is...interesting. And by interesting, I mean complete and utter crap. It only gets halfway decent during the "sexy" scenes, which I guess makes sense, because this nonsensical pile of dreck is clearly nothing but a poorly concieved vehicle for such scenes. But even then it's only passable. Honestly when the high point of your animation is some dude getting a huge boner while he stands under a waterfall, you probably have a problem. The character design is pretty terrible too. Everyone's hair is super big and no one has any fashion sense. It's like I've entered a time warp to the 60's. SOUND:I wouldn't say it's bad. The sound isn't bad. It's just bland. Completely unmemorable. And in some ways, that's even worse than bad. At least bad can be charming in its own bad way. CHARACTERS: The characters in this show are a mess. Our protagonist, Mari, in addition to being the biggest oblivious idiot I have ever seen, is as whiny and two dimensional as they come. Her love interest Tobishima isn't much better. I'm pretty sure he doesn't even have a personality. He sort of struck me as a cardboard cutout. Then we have Mari's friend, who is clearly a lesbian with a crush on Mari. Unfortunately for her, Mari is as I mentioned before about as bright as a broken light bulb and is completely oblivious to her friend's affections. It's kind of a shame because said friend is really the only semi-interesting character in the show and the only one with an actual personality beneath the surface. Maybe if she'd gotten together with Mari some of that would rub off. Either way everyone in this show is really terrible and I feel like I'm reading a really bad fanfiction or something every time I see these people. OVERALL: This show is less than an hour long and will not take up much time from your life should you decide to watch it. However, it is not worth even that short time. This is probably about the worst trainwreck I have ever seen, and I've seen the english dub of Ghost Stories. Honestly unless you are just here for the sexytiems and also have really, REALLY low standards, I wouldn't touch this one with a ten foot pole if I were you. No seriously, for the rest of my life I have to live with the knowledge that I have watched Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman. Do not repeat my mistake.
