Rick Santorum Movie Studio Exec Peddled Porny Cartoons

Gen Fukunaga, who helped get EchoLight off the ground, is also CEO of a company that releases adult fare.

This morning Ben Feuerhard at lefty website The National Memo pointed out the disconnect between Rick Santorum’s movie studio’s stated purpose and its co-founder: Gen Fukunaga, the man who brought Dragon Ball Z to America. FUNimation, which Fukunaga helped found, also produces smutty, porny cartoons. Ain’t capitalism grand?

Gawker notes Fukunaga’s involvement has never been a secret, and it’s just now that National Memo is pointing out that Santorum would most certainly not be OK with content like this:

Other adult shows brought to North America by Fukunaga’s FUNimation include the racy Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt. FUNimation’s website describes the show as follows: “Panty and Stocking are nasty angels who were banished from the pearly gates for being foul-mouthed bad girls! Now they spend their days hunting ghosts in the lecherous abyss between Heaven and Earth. Panty likes sex, Stocking likes sweets, and their afro-sporting main man Garter Belt has a fetish we can’t mention. Together, they’re keeping the streets free of bodily fluids!”

First off, how have I never seen this show before? While I suppose this could be embarrassing for Santorum, it’s not like his film studio is releasing cartoons including the unspoken fetish of afro-sporting main man Garter Belt.

Last year, I graded the trailers of eight EchoLight movies.
