was supposed to be for yandere anime what Scream
was to Slasher movies"Denpa Teki the Abridged Movie
was a 4 episode, 32 minute fan-made abridged movie/miniseries based upon the anime OVA series Denpa Teki na Kanojo
. Starting production in December of 2009, the four part abridged movie was released during the Memorial Day weekend. It should be known that, unlike most abridged series, Denpa Teki
retained a similar tone to it's original anime counterpart while working as a satire of the various yandere
anime series that have been released recently.
The movie was originally intended to come out during the Christmas weekend of 2009, however, the original hired voice actors dropped out (Juu's voice actor blocked the creator on Skype for some reason, one was unable to be contacted due to social issues and the other due to computer problems) so the entire movie had to be recast. Voice work began from February to April 2010, with editing taking place from April to May 2010.
While it does mostly follow the plot of the original OVA, the writer and creator of the abridged movie did add several additional elements to the film to slightly alter some of the plot points.
It should be noted however that viewer discretion is advised. Rape and murder play a big part in the movie.
The series was written and directed by Brooks101189, who had earlier done an AbridgedSeries
out of the anime ToLoveRu
. It stars the voices of Devil Kick Sanji1, Why do You Lie to Me, and Crazy Bout Cena54. It should be noted that many of the voice actors have at one time or another voiced characters in a Higurashi
abridged series, which also featured yandere
While the miniseries was on Blip TV, it received a rating of TV-14 for language.
A sequel season under the working title of The Crying Game
was at one point in development. It, unlike the previous film/miniseries, is much more loosely based upon the plot of the second OVA. Much of the cast from the original were expected to return.
Unfortunately there was an incident on Blip regarding the first film so as of March 2012, the creator decided to cancel the reupload and sequel series.
- Abridged Series
- Adaptation Distillation/ Pragmatic Adaptation: A majority of the miniseries changes the story and character relations.
- Affectionate Parody: Of yandere anime and the murder mystery genre in particular.
- Author Appeal: The creator is a huge fan of yandere-related anime and manga, including School Days, Mirai Nikki, and Higurashi no Naku Koro ni. This was his way to show his love to the genre, by lampooning the hell out of it.
- Big Damn Heroes - Ame
- Black Comedy - The first series (as well as the second series' scripts)are dripping with this.
- Cliff Hanger - The ending of Part II.
- Cute and Psycho A Cute and Psycho character is a victim of a yandere who manages to survive an encounter with one but goes insane due to the amount of Mind Rape thrown upon them according to the second OVA abridged film.
- Darker and Edgier - Not to the yandere genre, but rather a Darker and Edgier take to The Abridged Series.
- Deadpan Snarker - Ame has her moments.
- Easy Sex Change: The villain in the sequel would have undergone this to be with their lover
- Expy - Miya is obviously an expy of a certain . . . .cute-and-psycho character. . .
- Evil Gloating
- Evil Laugh - They're yanderes, what do you expect?
- Heroic Sacrifice - Juu pushes Ame out of the way of Miya's boxcutter. In the end, he lives
- Jump Scare - Ame does this to Juu several times. Played for Laughs.
- Lampshade Hanging - The Abridged Movie is mostly a Lampshade Hanging of yandere anime like Higurashi and School Days. The Abridged Movie goes so far as to even reference these anime.
- It may or may not be obvious who the real villain of the first OVA is.
- Lighter and Softer: The planned sequel season would have been more comedic than the previous episodes.
- Montages - There are several musical montages sprinkled throughout the movie.
- My God, What Have I Done? - Miya undergoes this after stabbing Juu before being tased by Ame.
- Our Yanderes Are Different
- While the film's yanderes are portrayed like one expects a yandere to be, there are some noticeable changes
- There are "good" and "bad" yanderes
- "Bad" yanderes, or the ones that go crazy and kill people, are considered rogue
- There is a secret government agency of yanderes known as L5.
- Precision F-Strike: In the original script, the sole use of the word "fuck" would have been issued by Miya during her villainous speech, but was removed due to the voice actress' then-hesitance to swear strongly.
- Rape as Comedy - The rape scene in the first part of the film. It's not intended to be funny.
- Miya: "Nobody like rape now do they?"
- Satire The first OVA is an Affectionate Parody Satire on the Yandere and murder mystery genres. The second OVA is intended to be a satire of that plus other things and is far more crueler.
- Sequel Hook - A script based on the second OVA to be used for a second season was developed but never produced.
- Shout-Out - Tons
- The Dragon - Miya's brother is one to Miya.
- The Reveal - In the first film Miya is the true killer.
- The Stinger - Originally, in the sequel series script, the ending would have led up to a season based on a potentional third episode. When the studio that animated the episodes decided not to do a third, the ending was rewritten slightly and after the end credits would have included a scene where Miya would have escaped from prison and Juu would have been implied to be killed by her.
- What Could Have Been - When the script was first written, the creator had originally planned to cast Zero Q Productions (Higurashi Parody Fandub, Tora Dora Abridged) as Juu, Magical Flute/Auricairis as Miya (Cardcaptor Sakura Abridged, Tora Dora Abridged) as Miya and VinnieBeniVincent (To Love-Ru Abridged) as Ame. But due to circumstances, the movie was recast. The only person who was casted earlier that remained was Rush619 as the voice of the killer. However, the creator is very happy with the voice actors that he casted and the end result of the film.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: In the abridging of the first OVA, Miya's brother is in prison. Miya herself is also in prison.
- In the earliest draft of the script Juu speaks about the fate of his parents His parents were murdered in a house break-in two years prior which would explain why Juu is as he is. It is merely implied that his parents died in the final product. A much earlier script would have also connected Miya and her brother to the deaths of his parents. These were dropped due to the creator believing that he had made the first season as farfetched enough as it was.
- Yandere - Pretty much any of the female characters mentioned by names are one but each varies in how much of a yandere they are
