Based on Mineo Maya's 1978 manga in Hana to Yume magazine, the series was the first to introduce homosexuality to TV anime audiences, and the nudity is reasonably tasteful (allowing for some floral backgrounds) and mostly male. A fantastical plot revolves around Jack Bankolan, a former British agent licensed to kill, who has somehow ended up working on the fabulously wealthy diamond-trading South Sea island of Marinera as a nursemaid to Pataliro VIII, the superpowered brat who is head of state. The joke is that this 007 is gay and the foes he faces are gorgeous men, transposing the machismo of the Bond mythos into lighthearted camp. Originally called just Pataliro!, the longer version of the title was used from episode 27 on. Nishizawa's movie, Pataliro: Stardust Project (1983), featured the titular plan by the international Tarantella crime syndicate to raid Marinera's diamond vaults. Typically, they send in an advance assassin to remove Bankolan, but the tall, handsome Andersen instead falls in love with his quarry.Kenichi Maejima's Pataliro Saiyuki (2005) remodeled the characters as the cast of Journey to the West.
