-Quick Plot Summary:
Mari is a recent transfer student to PR (Perfect Religion) Academy as she is sent there due to her father’s accord. She is a Catholic who diligently worships the Virgin Marry Sue as she wants to grow up to become a Nun. The first person to greet Mari is her new best friend Saori who is a Hindu. They greet each other and gets onto Saori’s secrete motorcycle to the school.
Unknown to Mari is that the school has been conquered by the Black Buddha Cult. An organization that brain washes males to become cretins as they spread brain washing havoc to corrupt the youths as hypnotized people wearing bad masks and costumes such as Scary news Reported, old men whose names are puns on numbers, Dark Vader (Not Darth Vader), Kyoshirou Inemuri with buff pool boy, Teenage Mutant Octopus brothers, Frankenmuscle, and the head general of the cult Ryo. All for the greater good of giving Buddhists a bad name, these actions are to convert the school into Christians.
Just as powerful as love at first sight, watch how Mari and Ryo will struggle with their romance. See the struggle of the students fight the corruption of The Black Buddha’s, Daddy Issues, Saori’s silent love, and what else might create havoc in many magnitudes of destruction upon PR Academy.

The Gladiolus (Butt Attack) in action!!!
The animation is from its time period. It’s well done and defined. I did see one jerking animation glitch in the original but it’s not that noticeable just missing half a second of in between animation.
Animation Rating: 3.5/5 (B) Party like 1994
The music is enjoyable and appropriate to the situation. The sounds effects were on key. The one spot I really enjoyed, aside from Noriko Noguchi’s singing, is when the octopus brothers show up and a melody similar to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles plays in the background every whenever they talked.
Sound Rating: 3.75/5(B) Cowabunga!!!
Overall Production Rating = 3.6/5 (B)
Pros, Cons, and Other Thoughts:
- Enjoyed the music and characters
- The over the top gags made the show interesting entertaining
- The story for both was done well and kept an edge for me to continue watching with some twists involved
- Doesn’t feel complete
- Screaming at the characters when something was Pokémon obvious
- The weird series of down quality over the years and censoring
Here’s a strange release history, every time Butt Attack Punisher Girl Gautaman (Butt Attack) has been released in Japan and other countries the quality of the release gets worst and strange censorship keeps getting added each time.
For the show, I found these OVAs to be exciting and action filled. Butt Attack is very reminiscent to Cutie Honey with a spunky heroine and quirky jokes of in-your-window as well as some obvious Go Nagi character/story influences. The characters did grow onto me as their situation got grimmer and more intense. On the parody side of Butt Attack it is laughable in a good way as to see how such famous characters such as Darth Vader and Teenage Mutant Ninja are depicted and used. More parody characters do exist in Butt Attack, but (hur-hur butt) that’s more for the viewer to discover and find out for themselves, baby.
Who could silly Saori be?
If this series ever does get a release in the US, both Butt Attack episodes (the Original and R) need to be packaged together in order to tell a complete story. At least the saga that it wants to tell as it is slightly left open for the ending. Just like in the movie Ai City if the last five seconds of the movie was edited out then it would be a complete and closed story; however, I am curious to read the manga now.
The first Butt Attack is pretty tame with the in-your-windows, but that second Butt Attack (R) adds a kiss to the romance which just like in Sailor Moon the R stands for romance in this case. What raunchiness we have here are about six different “mature” scenes: three nudie-booty scenes, a surprise-under-the-towel scene, and two sexually implied scenes. A quick snip should be easy to broadcast this in the US, but I don’t think it merit’s the erotica/nudie-bootie/porno label for this sequel. Rate it older teen and it should be fine.
*Pro’s, Con’s, and Other Thoughts Rating: 3.6/5 (B)
- Plot: 3.5/5 (B) It did leave me guessing.
- Performance: 3.5/5 (B) Enjoyable.
- Pace: 3/5 (C) Slow at some part but not unbearable.
- Characters: 3.75/5 (B) A parody some of the time, but the main trio did grow on me.
- Production Quality: 3.6/5 (B) Animation: It takes two to make it ought of sight. Sound: Totally Gnarly Dude.
- Pro’s, Con’s, and other thoughts: 3.6/5 (B) It’s a good one Waka-Waka (Youth Youth).
- Overall total: 3.49/5 (C) It’s a good enough watch to shake your tail.
Note: Due to my own belief and further defining anime as a pop art, no rating will ever receive a 0, 1, or 5 (a Z, F, or A in my book). For this reason is that times will change as opinions. Anything can be far greater or worse than before. That’s just human triumph and error.
What was needed?
- A HD DVD release in the US
- The manga getting a release in the US
- A proper re-mastering
With this OVA you can strengthen your bunz to SNAP APART STEEL IN A SINGLE CLINCH!!!
Does have slight nudity and perverse scenes.
Uhh, you would think with a name of Butt Attack in the title it would be like obvious.
- The Samurai
- New Cutie Honey
- Project A-KO
- Prefectural Earth Defense Force
Let’s Clear Some Confusion:
What’s a Gautaman?
While the OVA states a Gautaman is a soldier of Buddha. In the real world, it’s either one of two definitions the word originated from. From what I can find that can be applied to this OVA.
- Gautama a name given in Rigvedic times meaning “Bright Light” (Gau) and “Darkness” (Tama) which in a lazy man’s understandings means to dispel the darkness with enlightening knowledge.
- A paraded variant of Buddha’s first name originally spelled as Gautama Buddha.
