After failing their boss for the last time, yakuza members Kentarou, Ryou, and Kazuhiko are faced with one of two choices: have their organs harvested and sold or take a trip to Thailand for sex reassignment surgery and become pop idols. Now, after a year of excruciating training, the three thugs have been reborn as Airi, Chika, and Mari. Debuting as the amateur idol group The Goku Dolls, the three strive towards becoming top idols.

However, despite the hours of feminizing brainwashing they were forced to endure, the three idols have managed to keep the yakuza spirit alive in their hearts. In order to fix this, their yakuza boss hires Mandarin Kinoshita, a legendary manager who has never had an idol group fail under his management. With their lives now on the line, the reluctant yakuza must work with their new manager to unleash their inner cuteness and become the successful idols that their tyrannical boss can truly be proud of.

This anime is critically underrated. Perhaps it's just my twisted sense of humor, but this was a classic for me. It goes right along in the same vein as anime like Prison School, Detroit Metal City and Magical With Punie Chan. It's hilarious torture comedy.

When I first heard about it, I thought it was so stupid.

And after finishing it, it's still so stupid.

But I still wanted to make a short review on my thoughts on it, so here they are:

For a sketch comedy, the story was good in that it was entertaining and a lot of the skits had an inter-connectivity to them and a lot characters that appeared early on aren't just there to serve the purpose of the joke being portrayed in that particular sketch alone. One drawback to the story is that there ...
