Mystery Anime Revisited

A little while back, I asked for help identifying some anime recommended by a Japanese fan. I have subsequently found the business card on which he wrote the titles:


The first one looks like it is “Gurren-Lagann, so a shiny gold star for commenter Patrick.

the second one is a total mystery to me. I get “Ba Bu Ru squiggle GO!!” from that, and I’m not too sure about the “Bu.” Anyway, any guidance you can provide would be welcome in comments.

    Only thing I can think of for the second one (and this is only ’cause I happened to see the manga in my kid’s copy of Shonen Jump this weekend) would be “Hikaru no Go.”

    Not sure tho.

    And never mind on my comment. I see you’d already ruled it out on the prev thread. DOH!

    it’s baburu e go (

    So it is.
    And it appears to be a live-action film, not an anime, which probably explains some of the difficulty in identifying it.

    Thanks very much.

    “Baburu” being “bubble”, I presume.
