This 2 episode OVA is one obscure little piece of crap. Created during the terrible-OVA boom of the early 90’s, Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman cobbles together nearly every imaginable puerile fan service idea (pre-Moe Era) into one hallucinatory, B-movie package. The story: Mari Amachi is a
When an evil cult called the Black Buddha gang kidnaps Saori, Mari receives unexpected aid from
who enables her to transform into Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman, a sumo belt-wearing defender of truth, love, and justice in the name of the
who develops feelings for Mari while swearing to kill Gautaman.
Due to (abysmally) low expectations, I enjoyed Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman as the cracktastic OVA that it is (one of Gautaman's adversaries is Darth Vader- renamed "Dark Vader" here- as a sumo wrestler, for the love of God!!).
*snort* Ahem... ^^;
And yes, the "Butt Attack" portion of the title comes from Mari/Gautaman knocking her opponents out a couple of times by slamming her butt against them and leaving a butt-print. This is stupid, crass comedy at its goofiest and most unapologetic, and it actually worked for me during the first OVA. It helped that there was a small pinch of surprisingly decent, non-servicey yuri (non-servicey for this title, at least).
But while the sequel OVA, Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman R, still had its entertaining moments (the best scene being Gautaman's showdown with the Terminator in the end)
it wasn't as (stupidly) enjoyable as the first OVA. The service became more...blagh, and the yuri became more servicey, period. Saori's now very Tamao-like attraction to Mari remains one-sided, even though they have one last decent (for this OVA) moment towards the end.
And thus the story ends with Mari having completed her mission of defeating Darth Vader, a squad of ninja-octopi, her bishounen admirer, and the Terminator. The end.
Art: D (Crappy, inconsistent early 90’s art.)
Overall: Who cares?
