I am so late to post this, it came last week (: Of course I had to watch it first so that's a thing too :P As I mentioned in my "ultimate license announcement video" I actually came across the DVD of Dr Slump where Discotek licensed 5 of the movies and released them to DVD. Of course I didn't go into that much detail but shortly after I released the video I said to myself "lemme snatch this one up <3".
First up is "hello wonderland" which as you can see things kick off and you got The professor, Arale and Gacchan all up there chillin. Actually the purpose of this was pretty simple. Senbei(the professor) came across a video from his father about how to make a love potion. Surely with his lonely self he though "whoa that means I can get Mrs Yamabuki to like me". The father noted towards the end of the video that he used the love potion which resulted in him marrying his wife.
So they have to go to Wonderland to get the "special ingredient". That becomes quiet an adventure and of course a funny one at that xD
Of course while adventuring they run across some interesting counterparts. I do wonder, do these guys look familiar anyone??? Oh yes and lets not forget how Arale being a little robot girl has no fear and thinks everything is funny, including the giant dragon that Senbei told her to throw away because it almost ate them both XD
The movie ended up being really hilarious after the "special ingredient" was obtained and while Senbei's luck is pretty bad like Ryotsu that makes for an even more hilarious outcome. Lets just say things did NOT go as planned xxxxxxxxDDDDDDDDDDDDD
Next up is the "Space Adventure" which is a pretty musical piece. Probably should have turned off the subtitles :P but anyway Mrs Yamabuki has to resign from teaching after she learns that her mother had fallen ill. Once she gets back to the planet she was raised on things are definitely not as they seem. Senbei was depressed for a little while but after Arale thought of the idea to make a space ship then Senbei got himself in gear and put his "genius" to work. Here is the shot of the space ship above (:
As I said, things were indeed not as they seemed when Mrs Yamabuki returned to her home planet. As a matter of fact she was confronted by this eccentric looking man who wants her hand in marriage. This is a spoiled dude who's pretty much a cry baby but in this scene got the taste slapped out of his mouth for not accepting the word "no" xxxxxxxxDDDDDDDDDD
As I said this movie is very "musical" about a week before I ordered this DVD I was in one of the anime based music rooms in pigg. Someone played the song this dude sung in this movie and I found it interesting when I saw it the second time around. I literally said "oh my goodness, that one dude played this song in the anime music room in pigg !!"
That being aside everything ended up taking an interesting turn towards the end. How I do wish this blog had spoiler tags though ... Anyway even if Mrs Yamabuki was from another planet you can see in this picture how many people obviously care for her back on earth. Surely they wouldn't have put themselves through all that high risk activity for nothing xD
Next up is "The great race around the world". This movie is one of my favorites on the DVD so far it is most hilarious !! As the title describes everyone will "race around the world". This was actually a thing that was proposed by Mrs Yamabuki's parents that the winner would receive her hand in marriage. Oh gee where was that eccentric man from the last movie when all this went down??? Now surely she doesn't agree with this ... for the same multitude of reasons that I would be gnashing teeth and spiting fire myself.
Of course Senbei hopped on the opportunity being he's desperately in love with Mrs Yamabuki. The only problem is that his funny talking car "doesn't have confidence in itself". Now despite the subtitles I have to be honest and say I actually do recognize a difference in the Japanese dialogue between Senbei's car and the other characters. It seems similar to the way we make some characters have a southern accent or something. But anyway that being aside the race is ON !! And a mysterious body double has joined the race !!
Heh I should have taken a picture of the Yamabuki double xD Like I said no one likes to be pushed into a marriage they really don't want and luckly for Mrs Yamabuki they're not going to make her marry another woman. The race is crazy, offbeat and somewhat merciless. Its almost like Mario Kart on steroids the way everyone is literally rollin here. I'm totally loving it though !! Its literally anything goes xxxxxxxxxDDDDDDDDDDDD
Next up is "The secret of Nanaba Castle". I figured I'd try to get a shot of this green precious stone which seems to be really important in this movie. This movie seemed like an interesting get up between the characters as they all played very different rolls.
While Arale and her school friend were both bandits, this guy here(her other school friend) was the head of the police with his younger brother who's literally 2 feet high or something xD
I'm not really sure what all to say about this one being the fact the characters were all in very different roles. I guess it was like a hypothetical stage play of sorts but it was pretty entertaining nonetheless and AHA ~~ there is 2 Gacchans !!
Last up is "The city of Dreams Mechopolis". My second favorite movie on the DVD was quite a trip and a half. As we kinda know there are some spoofs on "foreign" characters here such as Parzen, Suppaman, and this one guy here that looks like the Star Trek dude.
City of Dreams you say??? You know it !! Except one small dictator wants to make it into a city of nightmares to everyone else anyway. That would explain why there is floating kana hanging around. At another point they had floating math as well. Luckly it was all basic stuff so they were easy to get rid of and if you got the kana wrong they would get angry xD
One thing I found interesting was that at one point you see where Senbei and Mrs Yamabuki were living together. Maybe they got married(?) who knows but I'm sure we all saw it coming at some point in time. Of course I find it funny that when Arale told them about the Mechapolis they actually thought she was having a dream xD
Pro tip; NEVER bring home a piece of poop. There is only one thing worse then bringing home a piece of poop and that's traveling home in one xxxxxxxDDDDDDDDD Now you know this is legit some Super Mario World type stuff where EVERYTHING has a face on it. Even the poop swirl has a face on it heh
I will make sure to get a video of this up pretty soon, if I don't cover everything in one video then I'll make it into a 2 part. Please look out for it (:
