Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi Complete Collection
“High Concept Lunacy” – PLAY Magazine
Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi’s unique brand of excitement fuses thrilling action, slapstick comedy and a bit of family drama into uproariously clever parodies of anime, video games and any other pop culture target that stumbles into its crosshairs. An instant classic upon its release in 2003, Abenobashi was created by GAINAX, the mega-talented production studio that revolutionized the anime industry in the nineties with Neon Genesis Evangelion and the early 21st century with FLCL. The series was directed by Hiroyuki Yamaga (Neon Genesis Evangelion, Wings of Honneamise) and co-produced by Madhouse (Vampire Hunter D, Trigun, Ninja Scroll).
Synopsis: Whoa! Hold on to your hats and get ready for one seriously wild and crazy ride as reality takes an extended vacation in Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi! Suddenly, 12-year-old Arumi and Sasshi find themselves in a world like their own…only not. And as they try to fight their way back to the real world, they face menacing mushrooms, big-breasted space pirates, a tripped-out transvestite, dinosaurs, dating sims, super-deformed mobsters, warfare, Hollywood horrors…and just when you think it can’t get any crazier, it does! So let your inhibitions go and dive into the madcap, whacked-out world of Magical Shopping Arcade Abenobashi!
