Desert Punk V1 - Enter the Desert

Enter a decimated world deep within the desert, where a less-than-noble hero fights for less-than-noble causes & chases a voluptuous love interest for less-than-decent reasons. A world where war is a way of life, sarcasm is mode of communication and the unexpected is always on the menu.  They call him “Sunabouzou” & despite his diminutive size, the press release thinks he’s the  craftiest, most deadly, most underhanded bounty  hunter out on the sands!  I tend to agree.

Desert Punk is a series that takes the “post-apocalyptic” future predicted by a host of sci fi and anime flicks, and adds a much needed sense of humour.

Sunabouzou, our “hero” , is a wise cracking bounty hunter with a renowned reputation.  His primary motivation in life juggles between economic gain, and an infatuation with breasts.   “The most perverted bounty hunter on the sands” is an apt description –leaving him vulnerable to the charm of any lady he passes. Well, any lady with the right assets.

Desert Punk delivers some of the most wonderfully offbeat moments from any animated series I’ve seen.  From villains with taste for pudding,  to sly folk who’d double cross you in a blink of an eye for some vodka for their tomato juice – Desert Punk fills the bleak, barren desert environment, with enough colourful characters and situations to really bring the series to life. 

The animation is hardly breathtaking, but remains sharp and detailed throughout.  A great deal of attention has been to character design, and background setting – viewers should keep a keen eye scanning the background for visual gags.

Curiously, it is the English language track that receives the 5.1 surround sound treatment – something utilized in the many action sequences throughout  – with bullets flying from all directions.   The Japanese soundtrack appears only in stereo, although dialogue remains crisp and clear in both .

With a mix of inventive gun battles spliced between plenty of laughs, Desert Punk, will, if anything, add a touch of variety to your anime collection.  Definitely lots of fun.
