Anime / Genji Tsuushin Agedama

Go To

Genji Tsuushin Agedama is an obscure (at least outside of Japan) anime produced by Studio Gallop, about a boy named Genji Agedama who ends up becoming a superhero-in-training (called "Agedaman"). Along with Wapro, his floating computer companion, he fights against a criminal organization who can turn humans into monsters of various types.

The series is an Affectionate Parody of anime that were popular at the time and of course contains many references to other popular media in Japan at the time.


The series contains examples of:

  • Affectionate Parody: Of pretty much anything that was popular in Japan during the early 90's.
  • Animation Bump: The show's animation started off looking pretty average for anime at the time, but as the show went on the animation became more detailed.
  • But Now I Must Go: The series ends with Agedama and Wapro leaving the Earth.
  • Clark Kenting: No one knows that Agedaman is Agedama in disguise at least until later on in the series.
  • Damsel in Distress: Ibuki Heike was this at first, until she got superpowers of her own and became "Wonder Ibuki" shortly after she found out about Agedama's secret.
  • "Do It Yourself" Theme Tune:

  • Expository Hairstyle Change: Ibuki has twintails in the first opening (and one manga adaptation), but she's always wearing her hair in a ponytail in the show.

How well does it match the trope?
