Just when you thought it was over, the weirdness is about to double! The celebrated, surreal comedy HARÉ+GUU continues in the six episode HARÉ+GUU DELUXE! The second HARÉ+GUU series picks up right where the TV series ended and dives right into its exuberant excess of surrealistic, over-the-top comedy that fans love. AN Entertainment will proudly release the first of two HARÉ+GUU DELUXE DVDs on May 1st.
ABOUT THE DVD
Haré and Guu return to the jungle to see familiar faces and a few new residents of the village including a psychotic substitute school teacher who takes a shine to Haré, and a pair of gothic cockroach siblings! At least they're polite! Dama goes on a destructive rampage through the forest, searching for her perfect prey, er, lover. And Marie puts on all of her childish cosplay charms to win Haré's affections. The revelation that Haré is soon to have a younger sibling means that he'll have a new father even sooner, but rather than a happy occasion, Clive officially joining the family could be Haré's worst nightmare come true!
HARÉ+GUU DELUXE volume 1 contains three bilingual episodes featuring an acclaimed English dub from Bang Zoom! Entertainment, the rarely seen original Japanese pilot film bonus short, all new non-credit opening and ending animation sequences, and thorough liner notes providing translation and cultural notes.
