What is this? License This is back after a 4 month hiatus. I have not been able to do one of these due to being very busy with life. Now, Today I will cover gag anime that I would like to see get licensed. The Series I will cover are Detroit Metal City, Astro Fight Sunred, and Arakawa Under the Bridge.
Detroit Metal City: Negishi is a nice gentle young man who dreams to be a pop musician. However, he's the lead singer and guitarist of a death metal band called Detroit Metal City. Since he has a double life, he tries to please both sides but he sucks at it. Most of the humor comes from seeing the hilarious situations that Negishi get into because of his stupidity. The one company I would see picking this title up is either Media Blasters or Sentai Works. Funimation would not pick this up because of the comedic over use of the word rape.
Astro Figher Sunred: Imagine, a sentai hero living a regular life with his girlfriend and the evil organization that the hero once fought against got regular lives as well. This is the premise of this anime. Most of the comedy coming from seeing these monsters who look terrifying but they act like normal nice people. What I found to be really funny was the "hero" Sunred, he's a jerk who smokes a lot. I can see Funimation picking up this anime because of the humor.
Arakawa Under the Bridge: Shaft made it and Nino-san is cute. thats all you need to know. Funimation, pick this up.
So, what are your opinions on these shows?
