The almighty symbol of terribad.

For at least the next two days, I’ll be caught up with everything the SCCSAV terribad watch group has completed. (They’ve seen scattered episodes of Musashi Gundoh and Reign: The Conqueror, but as of this writing, they’re not finished with either.) Now that I’ve completed this utterly useless task, I figured why not put my newfound knowledge of awful anime to good use?

So here I present a (highly biased) guide to terribad — from the ones I enjoy most to the ones I enjoy least, because that is obviously how such a list should progress. Enjoy!

(P.S. There are multiple pages to this for you folks on Google Reader. Haha, you have to come here to finish the post!)

12 (Naughty) Moments of Anime 2011 No. 6 – The Cult of WTF

Posted in 12 Moments, Kenya Boy with tags on 12/20/2011 by Shinmaru

Kenya Boy is freakin’ awesome, but I’m not sure enough people watched it after I posted about it the first. (Other than good ol’, dependable Digiboy, that is. A true bro.) So here’s something else to convince all you terribad lovers to drop everything right now and watch Kenya Boy.

At one point our buff, tanned Japanese friend Wataru goes for a refreshing swim with that hot piece of whiteness, Kate. Soon after, though, they learn that the water is not their domain when Kate is nabbed by the pleasant fellows above — a fucking cult of water god-worshiping crazies who dress like lizards. In the middle of Kenya, these guys somehow either get all the material needed to make these costumes, or they buy them wholesale from who the fuck knows where. But wherever they came from, they have them, and they worship the shit out of water gods in them.

Stylin’ and profilin’ — that’s the No. 1 rule of Kenya Boy.

This is the moment where I thought to myself, “OK, I have NO IDEA what in the hell this movie is going to do next.” All logic is gone by this point. You’d think I would have reached that point when Wataru slaps the black off two dudes and the movie makes a fourth-wall-breaking joke out of it, but somehow that didn’t do it for me. But this? You can’t do anything but throw your arms into the air and enjoy the roller coaster.

Watch Kenya Boy. Do it. You know you want to.

Kenya Boy – A Cinematic Masterpiece of WTF

Posted in Kenya Boy, Random Shit, WTF with tags on 10/20/2011 by Shinmaru

And so begins the odyssey of WTF that is Kenya Boy . . .

I wish I had the time to give this movie the exhaustive treatment it deserves, but unfortunately, it is not to be. However, I will take the time to outline some of my favorite aspects of this amazingly bizarre movie, while leaving a few secrets for you fine viewers to discover should you take the time to watch it. And you should! This is one fucking crazy ass movie.

First, though, the basic story of Kenya Boy is that this kid, Wataru, and his family are in Africa just before the Japanese officially enter World War II. Wataru and his father go into hiding because the British will be like, “WE MUST KILL ALL ORIENTALS” and somewhere along the way, Wataru and his father become separated. The movie is about Wataru’s search for his father over the course of several years . . . along with all sorts of other craziness.

(P.S. There’s a second page for all you lazy fucks who don’t actually go to blogs themselves to read posts.)
