Damn, shame it was only 2 minutes but was still funny.
The American weeb part was hilarious, I'll kamehameha ya and if you fob me off I'll put your name in my death note.

This was an entire episode smooshed into 2 minutes. Laughed my bones off. The foreigners are ridiculous as usual.

If anyone is curious about the manga he choose for the goth, it was "Tanaka Keiichi Saitei Manga Zenshuu Sinbatsu" by Keiichi Tanaka; it's essentially a comic gag parody anthology where he's the sole mangaka where he mimicked Tezuka's art style as well as Go Nagai and Fujiko Fujio.

Honda might have chosen this book b/c it was reprinted the same year IRL Honda started his serialization of Gaikotsu Shotenin Honda-san, so it would have been a recent event.

Tanaka himself is obscure in America. None of his manga have ever been licensed and I'm not even sure if scanlated. He was the original creator of Doctor Chichibuyama the manga which got a TV special
which has never been licensed or fansubbed either.

Such a shame it was only 2 minutes long. I personally found the "finding a manga with a long ass title" segment more hilarious than the rest.

I wasn't expecting much from a 2 minute special, but this was still pretty good.

What a shame it was just 2.5 mins long, but pretty good laughs.

And as always the American Japrish always got me.

Scary customers, especially the last one killed me. Lmao @ the Yamcha death reference.

Way too short, but I still had a good laugh and it was great to see more of this.
One Piece episode 914 & 915 were a mistake and 957 brought the salvation

I can't believe I watched the parent show when t was airing in 2018 and now, I'm finally watching this OVA in 2020, it felt like yesterday, so much nostalgia in this one, and shame it was only 2 minutes long. It was soo good it reminded me about every reason I loved the parent show. We really need a second season.

The last segment was funny, i think this OVA is too short.
The world has really became a terrible place to live in, there's nothing better than the anime world to forget about everything
