The comedy that is used is similar, through video games. And both of them have a lot of unexpected features. It includes the entire carnival from the beginning of the game with different characters experiencing it. The carnival is more drawn out, mostly through Johnny and Gato.

First I have to say: Before watching this anime you should have played the game. Without knowing the game you don't get most of the jokes in the anime.

Story: Well ... this anime is like a special for the game. There isn't actually that much of a story that is told. The whole anime seems to be a little homage to all those monsters and strange creatures in the game which isn't really a bad thing.

This is actually one of my favorite comedy-based OVA's. There are parts within, such as Gato screaming the same thing over and over, or Johnny's inside humor. If you're looking for the original characters of the SNES video game, you won't find them until the very end. Actually, you will only see the back of their heads. This OVA's characters are completely two different creatures that are traveling through time trying to get anyone to join their club. It may seem a little boring at first, but the second half will really make you laugh with Gato's yelling and running wild.
