Shortly after waking up in an unknown street with no clothes or memories, Retro and Pandy team up and begin a life of thrill chasing and violence. Retro's wild antics and Pandy's carefree personality make them the perfect partners in crime to cause mayhem wherever they strike.

When an accidental mistake lands them behind bars, Retro and Pandy are sent to Dead Leaves—a high-security prison on the Moon. Once there, they soon discover that the other inmates are clones, all products of genetic mutation experiments. With nothing better to do, they escape from their cell and lead a prison break with the other captives. Armed with a crew of mutants and a hunger for havoc, the chaotic duo begins their wacky escape.

This is a kind of rather wacky and out of control, kind of like FLCL and SuperJail. I will not have you watch this without a warning, this show is really over the top, packed with sex, poop, gore, and pretty much any type of joke around. Those who take offence to any of this or are young children should leave the room, as I will probably be talking about stuff like that in this review. Are they gone? Alright, back to the review.

This show is, hard to actually review as it’s that type of humor that you either get it or you don’t. Its ...

The plot of this anime was a big mess. There was a lot of filler and segg. I would never recommend it to anyone. Biggest waste of time, in my opinion. Very weird script and innuendos. If I remember correctly the voice actors did a poor job; I watched in sub. When there was action happening, there was too much happening on screen to focus. Messy production as well. Personally, this is my least favorite anime I have ever seen. The main characters were more perverted than 'Food Wars' or Mineta from BNHA.

20 of the Best Mature Anime of All Time

Anime aimed at teens is a lot of fun. But anime aimed at an older crowd is on a whole other level! You get more violence, gore, nudity and sex than you bargained for...which isn't entirely a bad thing.
