|Review||SUPER DEFORMED DOUBLE FEATURE (AnimEigo/Anime Projects, 67 mins, cert PG, ?12.99.
10 Little Gall Force is a video aimed at fans of ace character designer Kenichi Sonoda. It is an affectionate "Super Deformed" parody of the GALL FORCE series of videos. In this parody the viewer is taken behind the scenes at the making of a Gall Force movie, in which a director with an over fondness for realism inflicts various indignities on his cast. I found parts of this very funny, but the humour depends partly on familiarity with the characters (and a good pause control to read all the subtitling). Next comes a short live-action video of Sonoda at work and asleep, and a charming mini-anime sketch which is by way of an apology for the delay of Sonoda's latest release.
There is also a short live action video about the recording of the GALL FORCE theme song.
Verdict: Minor league stuff for dedicated fans. (**)
Character design: Kenichi Sonoda
