Wan-daba da daba Wandaba da!
Earlier today, Section23 Films unveiled their May 2017 release lineup. Among the titles, which included Himouto! Umaru-chan, Ajin, and Girls und Panzer der Film, is a single release from Maiden Japan.
Specifically, Maiden Japan will release Wandaba Style on DVD on May 16. The release will include both the original Japanese audio and ADV Films’s English dub.
Wandaba Style is a 2003 comedy series from Wonderfarm. Nobuhiro Takamoto (Tenchi in Tokyo, Beelzebub) directed the show, which features character designs by Shoji Hara (PriPara, 11eyes). Try Force produced the title’s music.
ADV Films originally released Wandaba Style in 2005 as singles. The show received re-releases in 2006 and 2009 as complete sets. Maiden Japan describes Wandaba Style as:
Dr. Susumu Tsukumo isn’t your typical mad scientist. First, he’s only 14 years old, and second, he’s firmly convinced that the moon landings never happened. He intends to fix that, however, just as soon as he can find some human guinea pigs to test out his highly-unorthodox, but environmentally-friendly, methods for getting people into space without using fossil fuels. He has one problem: where do you find someone who’s crazy enough to let a kid launch them into orbit? Enter Michael Hanagata, manager of MIX JUICE, a struggling girl band that’s so desperate for a break that they’ll do just about anything to be seen. Do they really mean… anything? Get ready to blast off with former child-star Sakura, tough-as-nails rocker Yuri, construction worker Himawari, and folk singer Ayame as they attempt to go from the Earth to the Moon with a little WANDABA STYLE!
ADV Films produced a trailer for the series in 2005 which you can check out below:
