Oh boy. You have sold me now.

The last Godannar DVD arrived today, completing my collection, and by last I mean the first volume with box as I purchased volumes 2-7 earlier in a nice deal.

Inside the box was an ad for Gravion Zwei, which is a few years old by now, but it certainly caught my eye. Below is the ad’s text, reproduced for your enjoyment.

————————————————————-

EFFEMINATE HEROES! GIANT FIGHTING ROBOTS! GRAVITY-DEFYING BREASTS!

Hold on to your feather duster! With a legion of perky maids and more FAN SERVICE than you can shake a stick* at, Gravion Zwei has all the action, comedy and MADCAP ADVENTURE you’ve been looking for!

*No, not that stick!

————————————————————-

…Really? I mean, really?

I’m no opponent of fanservice (I bought all of Godannar after all), but damn ADV, are you trying to make people too embarrassed to show your DVDs in their homes? I mean, unless it’s full-on pornographic anime you could at least use some restraint, some clever lines which sum up the show in a reasonably tasteful manner.

  1. Yeah, I agree with Wildarms. All I care about now is that they give us Gurren Lagann sometime in the next 20 years.

    ADV LOOK AT ME WAIVE MY MONEY! I WANT YOU TO HAVE IT. I WANT TO PAY FOR THE SERIES I BOOTLEGGED! I THOUGHT IT WAS AWESOME!
