"My first impressions of Desert Punk weren't exactly good ones; I had originally thought this to be a completely useless series as there was nothing in it other than "Aqua Teen Hunger Force"-like comedy and a complete over-saturation of fan-service. But I still had liked it nonetheless, because it did make me laugh. The English version, while not the truest translation, is filled with top-notch dirty jokes through and through, some of which is delivered so fast that it takes a moment to realize what you're laughing at. Plus, I enjoyed the unique style of animation and the quick-paced action.
But this volume of Desert Punk proves that my first impressions weren't so accurate. Not only do they attempt to follow a continuing storyline, but it actually works very well from episode five to episode eight. It deals with Desert Punk losing his reputation and having to find a way to regain it back while accepting some pretty strange jobs. Also, a few of the characters introduced in the last volume make some hilarious cameos (everyone besides the busty Junko makes and appearance in this volume) and of a course a few more are introduced.
This volume of Desert Punk was so good that I'm actually thirsting (sorry for the pun; couldn't help it) for the next volume. I still remember the pain from the constant belly laughs I let out while watching this volume. If you enjoyed Excel Saga, Cromartie High School, or anything of that nature, then Desert Punk would work well for you. A quick warning, though: the constant, yet comedic, fan-service and never-ending sexual jokes make this series a little too mature for a younger audience, so I will only recommend this to those of you sixteen or older."
