Gokudo, on the left, is
dubbed "The Worst Hero."
can be translated as "Gokudo: The Tale of a Rambling Wanderer." That
title pretty much says it all about this show. Gokudo is probably
"The Worst Hero" because he seems to have severe psychological
problems, not to mention the fact that this "hero" has a propensity
for nose-picking, ear-picking and pick pocketing. Gokudo and his
friends pretty much spend the entire series bumbling from crisis to
crisis, screaming all the way, and making us laugh while doing it.
Needless to say, this show is bizarre, but it's funny and well worth
watching. Hopefully, it will come to the U.S.
One final note on
this show. It's one of those Anime that straddles the line between
boy's and girls manga, so you get lots of action and sword play from
people who, in real life, would be too skinny to lift a hamster,
much less swing a sword. Be sure to check out Pioneer's Gokudo-kun
web site if your browser supports Japanese.
And now for some
images from the first LD.
But before then, one
more note. Gokudo has finally come to America! Yay! Perhaps the
Pioneer people read my site! Maybe not...

his more suave moments. I'd wager that he's likely to have greater
success without the glove.

genie knows how to get your attention.
for battle. The genie is much cuter in her female form, eh? Tell me
that thing on her head isn't inspired by "Star Wars."
A vengeful, drunken
genie turns Gokudo-kun into a girl. Uh...can anyone say
"What a cute girl!"
says the man.
"Cute girl?!" asks
