I have just discovered that Patalliro (aka Patarillo) is now available on DVD at CD Japan. At least two boxes of 4 DVD's each are. It's not cheap, it's in Region 2 format, and there are no English subtitles. I still want to get it.
But I really wish someone would fansub it.
I've only seen a few random episodes of this, at ShoujoCon a couple years ago. It has to be one of the most bizarre shows I've ever seen.
