SATELLITE GIRL AND MILK COW REVIEWED
“Satellite Girl and Milk Cow” is a bizarre anime movie. KIT-SAT 1 is a decommissioned satellite looking for love. When she hears a heartbroken singer on Earth, she crashes down to Korea and turns into a lovesick girl. Unfortunately, the singer turns into a human sized cow that is trying to evade a crazy stove. A witch and Merlin also come into play, as I finally find my new favorite anime film. I appreciate that the film plays under 90 minutes, because I don’t see how this much crazy could be sustained past that point.
Did I mention that someone turned Merlin into a roll of toilet paper? A roll of toilet paper that can still perform magic and dispense sage advice? I always wished that anime would be more inventive and I can’t possibly imagine a romantic anime that plays this way. Why does all of that stuff have to stay so serious? You’re a cartoon, play around with that. More movies should have talking toilet paper and human cows fighting against weird objects.

The Plot Thus Far
An out-of-commission satellite picks up a lovelorn ballad on her radio antenna and descends to Earth to find the source of such sincere emotions. But on the way, she is caught in a raging magical battle and transforms into Satellite Girl. Meanwhile, the balladeer in question – a loser twentysomething at a café open mic – meets the fate that befalls all broken-hearted lovers: he is turned into a farm animal. But love knows no bounds, and aided by the wise and powerful Merlin – a wizard who has been turned into a roll of toilet paper – our duo must evade the all-consuming incinerator monster, the wily pig witch, and other nefarious adversaries in an attempt to be together.
