Patalliro! Stardust Project
Matchless, Beauty and Ridiculous
Now, I am introducing “Patalliro! Stardust Project,” yes, that is a Japanese animated film released in 1983, adapted from the manga “Patalliro!” which has run from 1978.
Patalliro is a 10 year old king of Malynera, a fictional kingdom that exists in the center of Bermudian Triangle. Jack Bancoran is a 27 year old major who belongs to the British MI6. “Patalliro!” has described nonsense comedies, suspense, horror, mysteries, love affairs, and what not around the two. That is to say, anything goes.
Bancoran loves nothing but beautiful boys, namely, he is just in pederasty. With his marvelous eyes, Jack gets off with countless boys. At the 1999 February of PUTAO, its original writer Maya Mineo said “I hate male.” “I like feeling danger and fragile by the word Pederasty, so I prefer its image.” Then, even if you were in heterosexuality, you can enjoy “Patalliro!” for a lot of gimmicks made by the spoony man.
The older he gets, the more trivial his works become. Japanese reviews on Amazon.co.jp say “Patalliro!” has lost the shine which used to be felt one day. The movie was released in 1983 summer and its original episode was written when Maya Mineo was in 20s, however. It means you will meet the early “Patallio!” at the animated film.
Above all, it is full of OMOTENASHI spirit. Maya Mineo sang the theme of the film. What hospitality to please its viewers! Moreover, he was vainly good at singing. By the way, he had sung also at the record for “Patallio!” You will find lots of detailed service.
Needless to mention, it was structured so tight and its pictures and plays are all filled with beauty, likewise great gags. I bet we are never going to see the uninhibited animation film like this appear in Japan forever. It's still worth looking at.
