Purojekuto A-Ko Horror Film Trailer 1
"In Your Eyes"
- [B-ko works on her new invention] B-ko: It's perfect... Perfect! A-ko, you're going to die... die... DIE!
[the Captain is having D.T.'s and shooting wildly] Captain: Booze! I need booze! Booze! Booze-booze-booze-booze-booze!
[Hurls spider mecha at A-ko] B-ko: Spider Shot! [Hurls tank at spider mecha] A-ko: Spider Shot countered!
[D slashes A-ko's cheek] A-ko: How dare you... How dare you... How dare you scar a young girl's face!
Miss Ayumi: Who, why, what. Tank-ku-chi? Consequently it is the "We Are The World" of the Muromachi Period. At daybreak, the H2O is a fermata. Love in your Sigma Z. The path of love is always of the Rias type. To the side! To the side! A tank is passing...
- The character Mari is intended to be a female parody of the character Kenshiro from "Hokuto no Ken" (1984). In the scene where Mari turns on Asa and attacks her, Asa's head explodes. This is another reference to Hokuto no Ken, where Kenshiro causes the internal organs of his opponents to rupture.
B-ko briefly appears in a baseball uniform during her first confrontation with A-ko. Assistant director Shigeru Morikawa, had the little gag thrown in because he is an avid baseball fan.
The film was originally intended to be a part of the infamous erotic series, _Kurţmu remon (1988) (V)_. It was changed because the producers felt the film would be more profitable as a comedy. B-ko's bath scene is all that remains from that phase of the production.
Some of the missiles fired during the space battle scene are actually Pepsi cans. This may be a reference to the film _Ch˘jikű y˘sai Macross: Ai oboeteimasuka (1984)_ qv), which used a similar gag that replaced a pair of missiles with a Budweiser can and a sake flask. This gag was courtesy of mecha designer Sh˘ichi Masuo, who also previously worked on the Macross scene in question.
Ms. Ayumi was modeled after the title character from the popular anime TV series "Mah˘ no tenshi Creamy Mami" (1983). C-ko alludes to this fact when she tells Ms. Ayumi that she reminded her of someone famous.
