OAV Series

The Lamune & 40 series consists of the following OAV series:

NG Knight Lamune & 40 EX

This series takes place after the end of Lamune & 40 tv series. Lamune has returned to Earth with no memory of his adventures on Hara-Hara world and Doki-Doki space. The remains of Gobuhriki find their way to Earth, and when probed by Dr. Kotasturof awaken the spirit of Don Harumage. Cocoa builds a fighting vehicle with stuff she finds around Tokyo, Milk and Leska set off to find Lamune and Da Cider to save the day before the new Gobuhriki is revived and destroys the Earth.

Not a great series. Milk spends too much time pissed off and it moves kind of slowly. Has a few good ripoffs of other anime series.

NG Knight Lamune & 40 DX

Of the two, Lamune DX is the real standout series, probably the pinnacle of the whole franchise. The basis story is a ripoff of Sailor Moon, which was also at its popularity peak at the time. Lamune and Da Cider head off to Puff-Puff Palace to rescue two beautiful barely clothed maidens, Gold Mountain and Silver Mountain- the Mountain Duo (get it?) This of course infuriates Milk and Leska, who with a rather confused and unwilling Cocoa "transform" into the Seinaru Senshi (A pun on "Sailor Senshi" from Sailor Moon) "Seinaru Milky","Seinaru Cacao", and "Seinaru Lemon". The three then head after their would-be boyfriends to extract their revenge.

If you can only see one Lamune series, this is the one to see.
