Nerima Daikon Brothers
(Oroshitate Musical Nerima Daikon Brothers)
Distributor: ADV Films
What's a band to do with no fame, and especially no sold-out arena to perform in? How can they grab the cash they need to build the Concert Dome of their dreams?! Well, they can't. But the Nerima Daikon Brothers sure as hell are going to try! Watch as Hideki, Ichiro, and Mako farm daikon by day and battle slimy record producers, pachinko-mad hags, monstrous nurses, flatulent hospital administrators, and hot police babes by night.

Anime on DVD
Vol. 1 - "Yes I laughed and yes conceptual presentation of the show was fantastic but the oft disturbing and trashy humor did little for me."
DVD Talk (Todd Douglass Jr.) - 2 1/2 stars (out of 5)
Vol. 1 - "It's way too steeped in Japanese culture to be comprehensible to even the most hardcore Nipponophile."
DVD Verdict (Geoffrey Miller) - 55 (out of 100)
Vol. 1 - "Gleeful in its obscenity, much like a John Waters film, Nerima Daikon Brothers...attempts to put a smile on your face with cheerful filthiness."
