The Punch Line anime series saw a couple of releases around the world, and a couple in North America as well, but what it didn’t get released was a trailer. Senta Filmworks has now taken care of that and added it to their channel, making it easy to find and share with people who may not have seen it before. The home video release is still available in both formats and it’s streaming on HIDIVE as well.
Check out our review of the series.
The show was directed by Yutaka Uemura based on scripts by Kotaro Uchikoshi with animation at Mappa. Character designs were done by Shota Iwasaki. It stars Marina Inoue as Yūta Iritatsu, Sora Amamiya as Mikatan Narukino, Haruka Tomatsu as Rabura Chichibu, Minako KotobukiIto Hikiotani and Rie Kugiyama Meika Taihatsu.
The series features the opening theme song “PUNCH LINE!” by Shokotan ♥ Denpagumi and the ending theme song “Mitsu Mitsu Mitsu” (蜜蜜蜜) by Ayumikurikamaki.
Plot concept: When your day begins with being held hostage in a hijacking, can things get much worse? How about being kicked out of your own body? Or learning that if you can’t re-possess your physical shell, you’ll trigger a panty-fueled apocalypse that will wipe out all life on the planet? For Yuta Iridatsu, it’s just the start of the worst out-of-body experience ever. Now, if his dissed disembodied spirit doesn’t pursue the persuasions of a porn-obsessed paranormal pussycat and purloin a missing mystical manual, a meteor will collide with Earth! And to stack the odds even further, the book is hidden somewhere in the boarding house Yuta shares with a bevy of beautiful babes, but if he gets an eyeful of his ravishing co-renters in their unmentionables before he’s back in himself, it’s flash-forward to Doomsday! Will the literal end of the world be wearing briefs, a bikini, or a thong? Find out when panties, possessions and extinction level events have the ultimate rear-end collision in PUNCH LINE!
