Jungle De Ikou is your fanboy show. It's got a minimal plotline to maximize understandability. ^_^ But, hey, I have to admit: even though I'm not a fanboy, I really enjoyed this show. It was absolutely hilarious.
Natsumi is a girl who is viewed as being a "little girl." She's young, and no one wants to understand the fact that she's getting older. So when her father comes back from a little scientific exploration in New Guinea, it gives her the perfect chance to prove herself. How, you ask? Well, her father brings her a little statue. He stole it because his company decided to quit funding his research projects, and he wanted to get back at them. Upon giving the statue to her, Natsumi's mother states that "Natsumi isn't a little girl any more." Well, she was sort of right.
Natsumi hates the statue. She thinks it's really ugly. So she takes the earrings off of it (they're little blue crystalline earrings, and she actually LIKES those). Of course, she falls asleep with them on. Natsumi dreams that an old man named Ahem, the God of the Earth, is teaching her how to do a dance. He tells her she must do this dance whenever she is in trouble, and it will be sure to save her. However, the man is a half naked, wizened, old bean, and all he's wearing is a long, pointed gourd over his... privates. Does he look or sound very credible? Not really. So he gives Natsumi a necklace with little skulls on it. He says his power is in there. Now all she has to do is dance...
Natsumi wakes up with a start. She sees a little guy in her room. Naturally, she thinks she's still having a crazy dream, so she doesn't pay any attention to him and goes back to sleep. Then he says his name is Ongo. RECOLLECTION! Natsumi remembers Ahem saying that Ongo was the God of Destruction, and he was going to destroy the Earth!
Ongo will not leave Natsumi alone. He certainly doesn't SEEM like a God of Destruction; he's about a foot and a half tall, talks really loudly, doesn't remember anything, and hides in Natsumi's earrings. Showing him the new world (which is NOT a jungle) where skyscrapers are about the only thing visible is a complicated task. Add in Rongo, Ongo's estranged fiancee, and more dancing Ahem, and you've got yourself a rather large problem. Rongo likes to posess a friend of Natsumi's, named Nami, and Nasumi herself gets posessed by Mei, the flower spirit. Together, they have to fight and try to figure out this situation (if their 50EE breasts don't get in the way while doing it).
Things to watch out for: Some nudity (but nothing is ever shown), blood and gore, magical flying whales, perverted dances, and other sexual things... along with profanity. It's just a comedy aimed at older guys, so don't go renting it for a kid. Well, there'd have to be something wrong with you if you did, because... WELL, LOOK AT THE BOX ART!
5/5 Save the world from ultimate destruction. Not too original, but the way of going about doing this task IS.
5/5 Pretty well done.
4/5 So it wasn't the deepest thing around. But it sure was funny ^_-
5/5 Good music. Jungre De Ikou! Whoah-oh, yeah-eyah yeah yeah!
3/5 The dances the little girls had to do were pretty sexual, including the Water Spirit (Rongo). The ending to hers was just... embarrassing to watch. There were also numerous panty shots on the little girls, old men, and little boys. People make lots of comments about boobs, needless to say.
4/5 There was a bathtub scene, and Mei's top gets ripped off, but you NEVER actually see any detail on the people. In fact, you never see their boobs naked or anything; they cover themselves (which I think to be rather impossible...)
3/5 There was lots of blood and stuff, fighting, magic, etc. The reason I gave it a three was because there were some rather violent and bloody scenes (but nothing I cared about).
5/5 Nice and smooth, especially on Mei's bouncing boobs. Haha.
3/5 They swear all the time. But it's nothing serious. It's mostly "WHAT THE HELL?!"
5/5 I really liked it. It was so funny.
Totals: 42/50, or good. Don't shy away because of the character designs. It just makes it all the more funny. Hey, I'm a girl, and I enjoyed this!
This is a fanboy's dream. Scantily-clad women with breasts the size of Texas. (maybe bigger). This certainly tamed the fanboy in me! Hee hee hee. It was really, really, really funny. Some of my friends thought it looked SO DUMB, just because Mei (May)'s boobs were so freakin' big. Ha ha hahahaha. Their loss! ^_-
Anyway, the "story" is as follows: Natsumi, a ten (eleven, twelve? I dunno) year old girl. Her father is a scientist in New Guinea. He is collecting artifacts from ancient tribes, but the company that is sponsoring his trip there cuts off pay. So he heads home, stealing a little statue. He goes to Natsumi, gives her the statue and she pretends to like it. She hates it; thinks it's really ugly. She takes the earrings out o it, and puts them in. They glow all funny-like. Bad sign. Anyway, she goes to sleep and dreams about this naked old dude named Ahem. He has a gourd (a really long one) over unmentionable parts. (there are actually tribes in New Guinea (I think it's New Guinea) that wear gourds over themselves.) Anyway, Ahem shows her this dance and tells her she's supposed to do it if she gets in trouble. Natsumi wakes up to find a short, squat, little dude on her. She insists it's a dream. but this "dream" doesn't like being called a "dream". So he says his name is "Ongo". Natsumi remembers Ahem saying that "Ongo" is the God of Destruction. She looks at him. EEEEEEE.
Ongo discovers whale meat. He likes it. It is very expensive. So he summons a whale (and about half the ocean) into Tokyo. Natsumi eventually has to do the dance and transform into Mei. She unfortunately gets her picture taken by the newspaper. Her friend Takuma gets this huge crush on Mei and Natsumi accidentally tells him Mei's name. Now everyone knows Mei. Hee hee. Well, there's always Rongo. (the Water Spirit. Mei is the Flower Spirit, Ongo is the Wood Spirit, and god knows what Ahem is.) She has this thing fo Ongo, and she decides that Natsumi is not worthy of him. She takes over Natsumi's friend Nami's body. Nami is this really quiet, weird girl who says things like, "My dream is to take over the world with my magical powers." (Ignoring the fact that she HAS no magical powers) Anyway, so Nami gets taken over by Rongo, and her and Mei fight. Of course, being spied upon by Takuma. He gets bloody noses a lot. Rongo ends up living with Natsumi and Ongo. In the third episode, Ongo gets into bigger trouble when the God of Destruction rises in him. Can they sop the EVIL GOD OF DESTRUCTION??? Nobody knows! (no, Nami, you cannot be the God of Destruction)
5/5 Lame, but pretty original.
5/5 I liked all but Ahem, HE WAS SO UGLY!
5/5 Deep? Never, but it was really funny!
5/5 Cute stuff.
3/5 Implied lesbians, humping of the air, grabbing dances. . . etc. etc.
4/5 Besides Ahem. (who you couldn't see anything, thank god) Mei's boobs were naked, but you didn't see anything. TONS of panty shots. This could compete with AIKa.
3/5 Well, there's some blood and stuff, but nothing too bad.
5/5 Very good!
3/5 They say hell a lot.
5/5 It was very funny, and too many fanboys would kill for this!
Totals: 43/50, or It was Gooooooooo!
TOTALS PUT TOGETHER: 42.5/50 we both liked it a lot.

Jungle De Ikou is a short, funny series about what happens to a couple of people when New Guinea spirits posess them. They must fight to save the world, of course! We recommend it to teenage guys, although we're both girls, and enjoyed it a lot. It's kind of perverted, so you should just like that kind of humor! You should probably see it subbed over dubbed, but we saw it dubbed. Whatever floats your boat!
