Anime Rifftrax? Fist of the North Star!
« on: November 07, 2008, 12:56:47 PM »
There are some great, adult oriented anime titles that would gain new life under the hilarious scrutiny of Mike, Kevin, and Bill.

Fist of the North Star: one of the best of the worst.  The titular fist is a pressure-point punch which causes the victim's head to explode a few seconds after impact!

Golgo 13: A James Bond style, hard as nails super spy.  There are two titles, The Professional and Queen Bee.  Both take themselves very seriously, meaning they're ultra ripe for parody.

Any other ideas?  Who else would love to see some anime Rifftrax?

Didn't they make a live-action movie about Fist of the North Star?

Oh yeah they did.  I suppose that would work too.  Apparently its even worse than the anime, which is hard to believe.

Along similar lines, how about Highlander: The Search for Vengeance? It's just about that bad. And barring that, how about Highlander: The Animated Series?

Those two gave my inner child CANCER!!!

Would you believe that I not only have them, but they are dubbed on the same tape?

There is also a live action version of Golgo 13 with Sonny Chiba.  It too is much worse than the anime version.

The new live-action Dragonball looks like it's going to be Rifftrax-worthy material.

Doesn't the anime version of Fist of the North Star have some rape scenes? I don't think the guys would want to riff that.

It's been a long time, but that sounds about right.  It's pretty disgusting all the way around the track. 

The live action version of Golgo 13 has a transvestite snitch.  Nothing wrong with that, but it's definitely played for laughs.

That's not true at all, as I've told you

They find the idea of riffing animation, any animation in long form too absurdist

And as I e told you, the rights are a nightmare, before you cross those cultural barriers. the answer is almost 100%, and by that I mean 99.9999999999999999% no, as there is nothing to gain that makes taking a chance worth it.  They do not have the time and money to waste on such fruitless pursuits.

The amount of money to spend to make them say f-it and go for it is so astronomical, you could buy 5-6 real Hollywood movies with that money easy. And that's a very conservative estimate.

Give up the anime stuff, seriously. Understand that even if they tried t go to funimation or whoevr, they would be fools to give it to them, as they'd be torching their relationship to submit any of their partner's work to ridicule, no matter how good natured, and even asking is pure napalm.
