View Full Version : Anime dolls spotted on History Channel's "The Universe"
12-13-2008, 12:20 AM
I was watching last week's episode of History Channel's "The Universe" (3x04) about sex in space and noticed that one of the people being interviewed had four anime dolls that he used to explain his "200 mile high club" super yachts and "love tunnels."
Some screen caps:
Anyone able to recognize what series the dolls are from?

Never could get into dolls myself. I know we have a few people around here into them though. Still, it's interesting they were used to illustrate a point.^^

They're from the anime Super Doll Licca-Chan.
The ones on the couch are Isamu (green hair) and Izumi (purple hair), and the ones in the tunnel are another Isamu and Licca (red hair).
You can see the dolls in this page http://www.bobagirl.com/anime/misc/fash-licca.html, got to the bottom and click on Super Doll Knight Licca, Super Doll Knight Izumi and Super Doll Knight Isamu.
The anime itself is a spin-off of the popular Takara fashion doll Licca-chan. In the same fashion as all those fairy tale Barbie movies (only in anime, instead of CG).
The anime was aired here in Latin America through Cartoon Network LA. It was quite fun, actually.

*smacks her forehead*
I am sooooooo ashamed that I actually recognized those.
(I've seen a couple of episodes and Dear God did I ever just get sent straight back to my childhood in the '80s. High-tops and yo-yos, oy...)
