Highs: Insanely funny; energetic seiyuu cast; catchy tunes

Lows: No new story; limited appeal

This OVA is a follow-up to the hilarious Jungle wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu, and things are more outrageous than ever. If you thought the television series was funny, you haven’t seen anything yet. While it may lack any kind of plot, this OVA is so off the wall that you won’t have time to notice between the laughs.

This being said, it’s best to know what to expect before watching Jungle wa Itsumo Hale Nochi Guu Deluxe!. If you did not enjoy the original series or have yet see to it, it is best to stay away from this one. There is no real story to be found here, and this anime is dedicated to tying up several of the plot holes left from the series. Coming from the point of view of a big fan of the original, this was not a problem for me. Others may be wondering “huh?” the entire time, however.

Every other aspect of the show blew away my expectations. On top of the huge cast of hilarious characters from the first Jungle Guu, there are several new additions; I can’t say they are any deeper than the rest of the one-dimensional cast, but they fit in perfectly. The animation is clearly a step up, as would be expected from an OVA, and once again the energetic seiyuu cast truly puts on a show to impress. Catchy new tunes make the show that much more fun.

Make no mistake about it, this OVA is for fans of Jungle Guu only. Anyone else would have a hard time enjoying it. However, if you are Jungle Guu junkie, you absolutely cannot miss this. Watch it twice, because I guarantee that the first time through you will laugh so much that you might miss some other jokes.
