still one of the illest to date, I agree, I saw this anime over 10 years ago, 10 years later im still impressed. It kinda tripped me out to learn this was originally going to be part of the "cream lemon" hentai series though lol
I remember Project A-Ko; it was one of the first epic anime shows that I had ever seen (shared on bootleg VHS back in the 1980s). As I recall, A-Ko's parents are revealed (at the end of the movie) as Superman and Wonder Woman, explaining A-ko's super powers that she displayed during the story.
I seem to recall that there were several trash-quality sequels to the original, none of which I took the time to finish.
This was the 1st true anime I had ever seen.... original language, no subtitles, and cartoon nudity to boot. All seen complete with grainy picture on an "umpteenth" generation VHS tape. (the genre was still kind of underground back then).
I've heard that this flick was actually made from a leftover script....of a porno, that was altered to become the mainstream A子 that we all know and love today. Considering how wacky this movie is, I sometimes I wonder what that other story could have possibly been like.
An excellently over-the-top illustration for an excellently over-the-top anime. This brings back so many memories from the early days of being an anime fan. Thanks for re-igniting my nostalgia, sir. I might have to watch this again now.
