It all starts when Gokudou steals a pouch from a fortuneteller, thinking that it contains a gem. Instead, it turns out to be a rock, from which emerges Djinn. The genie grants Gokudou the standard three wishes, but our anti-hero doesn't think heavily about his wishes. Gokudou does get his wishes, though not exactly in the fashion that he expected. The best thing he gets out of his wishes is Honou no Maken, a magical sword that enables its owner to do fire attacks and it can be summoned from anywhere in the world.

Even with an enchanted sword, Gokudou doesn't get much respect. He gets turned into a woman by Djinn, who is also a shapeshifter. He is followed by Rubette La Late, a potential love interest who is more interested in adventure, karaoke and outperforming Gokudou. He gets whapped on the head a lot, especially by the fortuneteller who reappears throughout the series just to plague Gokudou it seems. Later in the series, he gets another sidekick, a former evil magician named Prince, who is more handsome and a better womanizer than Gokudou.

As a 26-episode fantasy comedy Anime series, Gokudo is outrageously wacky, offbeat, and howlingly hilarious, crammed to the bone with more laughs than one would expect. If there were any title to rival Slayers for its humor and zaniness, Gokudo would be a worthy candidate, in that it refuses to take itself seriously while moving along at a zippy, roller coaster pace.

The title character of this tale is the most unlikely kind of hero anyone would ever want to meet--he's selfish, greedy, obnoxious, and has only two goals on his mind: money and hot babes! Gokudo is unabashedly an anti-hero, all right, and so read more

Gokudo, we've got problems of our own!

Although this review will have noticeable personal bias, I would like to review one of my personal favorite anime, Gokudou-kun Manyuuki, as an out there comedy focusing around the hero/villain in the title.

I just recently finished this anime and in general I found it to be entertaining. It is an older anime, but for the most part I found it enjoyable.

Story (7):

There is no main plot to this story. Basically the characters are adventurers and face several challenges and mishaps as they set out searching for treasure and adventure.

The best thing about this anime is the comedy. A lot of anime that are listed under comedy I don't find funny, but this one had me chuckling throughout the series. I watched the English dub and there are so many hilarious puns and breaking the fourth wall jokes read more
