I honestly don't get this phrase.
What's the link with Utena?

You'd have to watch the finale of the film, but spoiler[Utena turns into a pink car and Anthy rides away in her.]

This show just keeps getting weirder... Which is actually a pretty impressive achievement.

Still not watching it.

Oh, Japan... Rolling Eyes I can think of few other places wherein I'd see a prepubescent-looking girl transform into a pink sports car, with her underwear still somehow visible underneath.

This one's not for me.

Not having heard of this upcoming anime before, I watched the video before I even looked at what the article said because the title piqued my interest and I don't have words for what I just saw.

Thanks. I've only seen the anime, now I'm kinda interested to see the movie!

...Huh. Alright then.

I am always surprised that I am never surprised by Japan and their media. My response is very similar to the girl in the white dress, but realizing the irony, having a good laugh afterward.

Rin turns into a pale pink sports car that somehow still manages to have visible panties from multiple angles.

The official website includes a 360° feature that lets fans view the transformed girls from any angle.


I don't like these two sentences by themselves and I don't like them in combination.

I was shocked upon seeing Rin ingesting a gallon-full of gasoline into her system. Shocked Perhaps she needed it for her transforming into a car? Now I'm really curious of the others girls' transformations (besides Haru)...

Is this one of those scenario's where the media makers have been roped in by a third party unrelated to creation process with businessmen betting on weather or not a horrible media release like this can become the next hit work ala' Kemono Friends.

So far it has simply been cringe, and even if that was the intention I don't see how this work will last beyond this phase of media release.

Yeah, at this point, it feels more like a parody of panty shots...or someone just has an odd panty-shot fetish. Including panty shots of automobiles. Just in time for Cars 3!

I see that the disturbing Turbo Teen concept is being tested on other demographics now...
