With help from a rental guy, Nabeshin, who rents them outrageous items that always seem to help them defeat the bad guys, the Nerima Daikon Brothers sing their way to victory but always manage to lose the money they stole in the end.

Sadly, this anime isn’t around anymore, but if you are lucky enough to own it, it has one of the best dubs ever (my own opinion).
Of course, you have to enjoy musical comedies. This anime is presented completely in song and dance, with many “unusual” would-be relationships, and financial woes.
And as for the cherry on top - all songs (except one) are dubbed in English as well, sung by the voice actors themselves. I can only imagine the fun the had working on this anime!
Here is the English ED for your viewing pleasure -
And in Japan, the Japanese cast made a music video of the OP -
I just can’t express how much fun this anime is! You will have to go see for yourself!
This looks like it may be one of the very few titles from the Sojitz mess Funimation has let the license expire.
Hopefully Discotek or maybe even Sentai can license rescue it some day.
If I’m remembering right the singles from ADV had like Pani Poni Dash, Excel Saga, and a few others the ADVidNotes. Most of the shows that featured them it made it a bit easier to get the jokes or in general what the heck was going on. Unfortunately that was around the time ADV had stopped keeping the extras for the complete sets. So they are only on the singles.
Pup… I was just fortunate to be able to watch it recently, and it’s Aniplex…
YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS…
It’s such an amazing show too! The dub reminded me of Ghost Stories, it was so funny!
I forgot about that. Licensed before all of the mess happened and before Aniplex decided they’d make a good NA company.
