Released in 1991, this OVA revolves around a mad scientist and the woman that betrayed him. Her unfaithfulness causes the scientist to turn her into a bionic sex machine that desires to please her man completely. However, she still remains unfaithful, and it is up to the scientist`s son to track her down and exact revenge.
Story: Think of it as Loony Tunes with an R rating. It focuses mostly on slackstick humor and gags, but the characters are all interesting and funny so it works.
The main character Jirochou is on a revenge mission for his adoptive father to destroy the woman who betrayed him and led to his death. Most of the OVA's run time is then spent following Jirochou has he comes up with scheme after scheme to kill Alice. As events unfold, he discovers he has feelings for her.
The plot is your average revenge scheme, but the many set ups are hilarious and interesting to watch.
In typical Monkey Punch fashion, most of the humor comes from either death, sex or a combination of the two. It takes a bit of getting used to, but if you do, the story is very enjoyable.
Art: The art and designs are stylish and closer to Monkey Punch's manga than anything else. The animation isn't terribly good, but decent for its time. The movements of the characters fit PERFECTLY with the art style of the comic, the inspired style of animation making up for the quality. I can’t really explain it, but if you watch them, you’ll see what I mean.
Sound: No soundtracks were very memorial to me, but the opening was quite catchy and the rest was decent.
Character: The great thing about Monkey Punch characters is because he doesn't have a problem with displaying their dark side's, you end up with a very unique cast of ruffians would you would utterly despise in real life, but are somehow made charming and likable in his insane, fictional world.
The main character Jirochou is very stubborn, "ends justifies the means" type of person. But he also has a very kind and loyal side, when he feels you deserve it. He is the Don of a mafia and is able to take full advantage of his resources to in his confrontations with Alice.
Alice is an motherly type person. And as the synopsis says, she was turned into a cyborg, by Jirochou's father. After her transformation, she becomes a superhero! Seriously, I'm not making this up! She has a cape and everything, how awesome is that?! She is a good foil for Jirochou and constantly tries to protect the people put into harms way in his quest for vengeance.
Enjoyment: I've watched this OVA a couple times. I enjoyed it much more on the second viewing cause I knew when all the rated R scenes were coming. I'd be lying if I said they don't bother me sometimes, but I'd also be lying if I said I'd do without them. Monkey Punch's style is unique and hilarious and I wouldn't have it any other way!
