What happens when an anime studio, desperate to cash in on its properties, creates a so-called movie that's about the length of a single TV episode? What happens when an anime licensor snags a 20-something minute "movie" in a franchise completely alien to the North American public, dubs it, and that becomes the first and only representation of the whole thing? Well, you get Ninku: The Movie, a completely superfluous and brainlessly silly feature for a show based on a really, really poorly drawn manga. I mean, really. Just go look it up.
But hey, penguin farts. That's what the kids are into, right? At least the animation's good.
