  • Anime With Unusual Subject Matter

    One of the panel presentations I'm hosting at the upcoming Glass City VI con is about anime based on unusual subjects or subject matter. Anyone want to make some suggestions for titles worth highlighting? Here's what I'm kicking around so far:

    Ah Harimanada & Dohyou no Oni-tachi as examples of sumo anime
    Aum Shinrikyo no Anime as an example of religious cult propaganda
    Cheer Danshi - male cheerleading
    Chosoku Spinner - competitive trick yo-yo spinning
    Hono no Tokyuji Dodge Danpei - dodgeball anime
    Ganbarist! Shun - male gymnastics
    G*ddamn - rally racing
    Karaoke Senshi Mike-tarou - karaoke battle anime
    Midori no Makibao - horse racing
    Onara Gorou - a fart that gives life advice
    Shibawanko no Wa no Kokoro - a dog that teaches traditional Japanese etiquette
    Ultraviolet Code:044 - 2008 prequel to the 2006 American sci-fi movie
    Unko-san - poop fairies
    Yoroshiku Mechadoc - a car racing anime that stars the mechanics instead of the drivers

    Update:

    Think I'll add Super Kuma-san, the first Animax Taisho winner.

          Appreciate the suggestions so far. Please keep 'um coming if any come to mind.

          I'm thinking that I'm going to skip golf anime, though, because I think there's enough of them that they're really not a "rare" theme.

          I think I'm going to include the 2013 Magical Flowers: Sekai ni Hitotsu Dake no Hana movie trailer because it's actually an April Fool's promotional tie-in to the Servant x Service TV series.

            Marriage: Kekkon - Basically, you should get married.

              Considering including Black Rock Shooter because it's an anime TV series originally based on just one character design image. I'm also considering introducing Akai Kodan Zillion because it was based o a Sega-produced toy clone of Lazer Tag.
