Avatar Breitgefächerte ungezügelte Fettleibigkeit ist in Japan noch nicht ein so großes Problem wie hier, geschweige denn wie in den USA oder Russland (auch wenn McDonald's anscheinend immer mehr Raum gewinnt). Ironischerweise hat trotzdem gerade dieses Land der schlanken Menschen eine seltsame Obsession mit Sumoringern – also zwei unglaublich fetten Typen, die sich im „Kampf“ zu einer großen, wabernden Masse vereinen.

Aa Harimanada stammt wohl ursprünglich aus einem Comic und schaffte dann den Sprung in eine Zeichentrickserie, von wohin es dann in dieses Konsolenspiel weiterging. Was so richtig das Thema dieser Publikationen ist, ist mir unklar, da sie alle (inklusive dieses Spiels) ausschließlich auf Japanisch (eine Sprache, die ich nicht einmal ansatzweise verstehe) verfügbar sind. Zusätzlich steht bei der Bewertung des Spiels im Speziellen im Weg, dass mir auch die genauen Regeln des Sumosports eher unbekannt sind (immer noch untertrieben). Immerhin kann ich sagen, dass es wohl generell darum geht, seinen Gegner aus einem definierten Kreis zu manövrieren.

OK… das sieht nach einem fairen Kampf aus…
Derart kann man auch im Spiel gewinnen: Wer aus dem Kreis fliegt, hat verloren. Auch verbringt man die meiste Zeit in inniger Umarmung mit seinem Gegenüber. Damit hat es sich dann aber auch mit den Ähnlichkeiten. Zumindest bezweifle ich stark, dass jemals ein Sumoringer der echten Welt überhaupt einen Sprung versucht hat, geschweige denn solche halbrecherischen Aktionen. Was also heißen soll, dass das Spiel der üblichen Street-Fighter-Formel folgt, inklusive akrobatischer Stunts, Schlägen und Tritten.

Dadurch könnte man meinen, dass es sogar zu einem interessanteren Spiel werden könnte, als wenn man den echten Sport simuliert hätte. Potentiell schon, aber andererseits begibt sich das Spiel somit in Konkurrenz mit einer riesigen Breite anderer, denn insbesondere zu dieser Zeit war das Genre sehr populär. Und in dieser Konkurrenz schlägt sich Aa alles andere als gut. Was könnte man da alles nennen? Die beinahe völlig austauschbaren Gegner? Die sehr geringen Aktionsmöglichkeiten? Die schwammige Steuerung? Die sparsamen Animationen?

Ob das alles nun überhaupt irgendetwas mit dem zugrundeliegenden Comic zu tun hat, wage ich nicht zu beurteilen. Zwischen den Kämpfen gibt es die genretypischen Beleidigungen (denke ich mal…) zwischen den Gegnern, aber mehr „Plot“ gibt es nicht. Man kann insofern nur hoffen, dass in der Vorlage mehr Fleisch drinsteckt…

That works unless you have something on which does not violate the fundamental rule of "show, don't tell" ;)

Moebius (03.10.2017):

Subs. English dubbed version doesn't exist, I think, otherwise I would certainly go for that. One thing I don't like about subs is that you have to constantly keep your eyes on the screen and can't just listen while doing other stuff. It's particularly inconvenient in the kitchen ;)

Mr Creosote (03.10.2017):

Out of curiosity, did you watch the show in Japanese, dubbed, with or without subtitles?

That's what I said; it may appear strange to you or me, but I cannot speak for others. Particularly if their cultural background is vastly different from mine.

Sure, I agree. Then again, they have other media where things like kindness, sympathy, modesty and respect are embraced and cherished. So, go figure... I think it has something to do with the two religions dominating Japan - Shinto and Buddhism along with their great many subcategories. I believe they historically derive more despotic and violent traits from the former, which is a pagan religion, while the noble, kind and merciful from the latter. It's only a shallow assumption, of course, but it could've well played a part in it.

It's not even necessary that he is considered a relateable characters. "Respect-inspiring" may also be a category applicable. In our societies, the two are linked to a degree. Though are they everywhere? No sure.

The other thing, of course, is that our typical role models of what is a positive character and what isn't may not be fully applicable to other cultures. A strong character who assures his superiority against all each and every obstacle and opponent may be considered a "good guy" in Japan for all I know.

To me it's a demonstration of vainglory and some deep-rooted victim complex. It's a behavior of someone severely and repeatedly abused in the past and who has now come with a vengeance which surely emancipates him from morals because his power, pride and godlike figure excels them. I mean, I have nothing against ambitions and strife for supremacy in certain fields, but only if you treat others with respect and not deride and scorn them with some morbid kind of disgust on the grounds of their weakness. Next stop - annihilation. I don't suppose you would advocate Hitler, now, would you? He also had his own ambitions and philosophy in mind. Only those were oppressive and genocidal and I have zero tolerance for anything that would even slightly remind me of that. Maybe I take it a little too seriously, but I have problems with such martial nihilism, just like you probably have some issues with religion ;)

Definitely interesting! Now the only remaining question is how far any of this is reflected in the game. I only remember basically one-liners between the matches, so I'm not sure how much is actually transported there.

After the matches he would taunt and insult the defeated wrestlers, like "Fool! You're not even half as good as me!" or something along those lines. Most of them would have their own special skills which they attempted on Harimanada, but they would always fail or backfire on them. When I played the game a bit I noticed that each opponent acts very differently and some moves would be either more or less effective on them, which is what the anime itself hints at and could probably serve as a good walkthrough for the successful completion of the game.

Moebius (03.10.2017):

I happen to have watched this anime recently, and its non-traditional scenario with pretty unfair turn of events as opposed to "good guys always win" one shocked me quite a bit. And here is why.

It appears that the protagonist is a boastful and self-assured sumo wrestler who literally terrorizes the wrestling studio on the first day of his appearance and claims to surpass any wrestler in both skill and strength no matter the size and weight. That is, he comes off as a downright negative character from the very off and everyone begins to hate him (except children who share a strange liking for him) as he also violates some of the rules by wearing various deity masks when entering the wrestling circle thereby making a cheap provocative show out of 300-year old japanese tradition and mocking the veterans.

The kicker is, he really beats everyone in this anime in a number of humiliating ways and remains forever undefeated, even though his utterly obnoxious temper and actions suggest he should go down sooner or later and despite the fact that some of his opponents seemed like very positive, humble and hope-inspiring characters. Nope, they would all fall miserably. Needless to say, I was very disappointed with that, but then again, I admit it's at least somewhat original, yet, unfortunately, very much life-like. A lot of douchebags tend to be very enduring, steadfast and quite unaffected by the bad karma whether instant or delayed. Just look at the politics.

I guess, this again has to do with the japanese culture and their peculiar way of thinking as they have a very controversial image of a would-be national hero, which, if anything, fits the characteristics of your typical tyrant. Boorish, immodest, eccentric, unruly. Some remnants of semi-barbaric authoritarian culture amidst modern world, part of which, I presume, makes the japs so unorthodox as a people.

Don't be surprised with the dimensions of this post, I just thought it would be an interesting piece of info as the very subject provoked me personally a good deal. I still remember your "Sure, that looks fair" screenshot in the news post, and I must say it's definitely wrong... that the bigger dude had to wrestle that brutal maniac and lose to him ;) By the way, in the anime he was a black guy from Hawaii. It seems that the game also reflects the correct sequence in which his opponents appeared, at least the first few of them.

P. S. Thanks to this anime, now I know what the white powder-like substance is that those guys toss on the ring when the match is about to start. It's merely salt, and it's only a small ritual of consecrating the circle.
