Japanese condom brand Okamoto has unveiled a bizarre anime series, Condom Battler Goro, on YouTube to advocate safe sex.
The four-part series will see the familiar-looking lead character, Goro, finding a magical condom in a rock. When he pulls it out, his body is suddenly armored with a condom suit to fight against his mortal enemy, Rambo, who is a condom hunter donned in broken rubbers.
“It is difficult to say with confidence that Japanese people are fully aware of how to use condoms properly, and we recognize that Japanese people do not like to touch on sex education,” Okamoto said on its website. “Therefore, we made an animation to educate Japanese people about safe sex, with a hint of humor.”
Each episode cheekily ends with the message, “To be condom…” to titillate viewers for more. Experience the condom-fueled series below.
