“Bizzaro World”, also known as htraE, has been a recurring location present in DC Comics’ Superman franchise. After seeing the increasing popularity of anime in the west, DC decided it was time to tackle what anime would be like on Bizzaro World. After much deliberation and research the various authors that contribute to the Superman franchise concluded that anime would be decidedly much better than it is on Earth.
The authors took no shortcuts in making Bizzaro-anime as different from this world’s anime as possible. Anime Maru attempted to compile a list of just some of the differences.
- After the complete flop that was Lagann Gurren Toppa Tenga, studio Naigax turned around and became a powerhouse studio putting out hits every year.
- On that note, LGTT was considered so bad that cosplaying the main heroine, Yoko, is banned at most anime conventions.
- One Peace is one of the most successful 12-episode series ever.
- Wolf & Spice covered the entirety of the source material.
- Every show produced by Bizzaro-Kyoto Animation is entirely voiced by Bizzaro-Kanye West.
- Nobody has ever heard of Yoshitsugu Matsuoka.
- The entire world collectively agrees that Pico is best girl.
- Studio DEEN has never done anything bad and all employees are heralded as geniuses.
- Anime Red-ray DVDs are incredibly affordable.
- Animators are among the most well-paid people due to the mass consumption of enjoyable and cheap anime.
Our interest piqued, the Maru team sat down with David Abrim, the head writer for the Superman franchise, and asked him what his inspiration behind the latest issue was.
Abrim: WELL WHEN WE SAW ALL OF THE KIDS ENJOYING THEIR ANIMES, WE THOUGHT THAT IT WAS TIME FOR SUPERMAN TO GET HIP WITH THE TIMES!
WE THOUGHT THAT WE COULD EXPLORE A LOT ABOUT ANIMES IF WE SENT SUPERMAN TO BIZZARO WORLD AND THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT THE ANIMES WOULD BE LIKE THERE!
We were held aghast at all of this, and wanted to know more about such a crazy and messed-up alternate reality where anime is actually good and enjoyable. As such, all of the Anime Maru authors have started a crowdfund campaign to build a machine that can warp to Bizzaro World.
