Err, OK, I guess there are worse things they could be showing, but there are also far better. The movie was kinda boring for a space adventure and some of the characters, especially Pochi were a little disturbing for a kid's movie.

Disturbing? I'll say. It felt like he was just straight up abducting the children, and not in a cute alien way, but the creepy psychopath way with promises of fun and adventure. And then there's the child nudity...

Don't be hating on Taraku Uon, man. He just really loves the fictional child characters he designs. Rolling Eyes

I haven't watched this movie, but it sounds a bit less disturbing than some of the pencil boards he has done.

That, and Pochi being a not-so-secret pedophile. Universe full of characters and he's constantly hitting on the youngest girl. He may look like a dog, but he's still an adult, and a teacher at that. He was definitely using his dog looks to get close to her.

He didn't work on Welcome to the Space Show, though. Masashi Ishihama is the character designer, and unlike R.O.D and Kamichu he wasn't adapting Uon's designs as far as I know.

He didn't? I made assumption. Guess I shouldn't have.
Maybe this movie isn't really that bad. I will need to see it to find out!

Manga Entertainment announced its license of the film in July, and a DVD/Blu-ray release is slated for December 5


It'll be a DVD/Blu Ray combo? Terrific! When I heard they were going probably do Blu Ray only release, I was worried granted I've yet to upgrade to Blu Ray. No matter what the critics say, I really enjoyed myself watching this at Otakon.
