Top manager Michael Hanagata cobbles together girl band Mix Juice from four has-been singers whose careers are going nowhere. Ayame Akimo is a folk singer whose brain is away with the fairies most of the time. Himawari Natsuwa sings Japanese classics with so little success that she also has to work on a construction site. Former child star Sakura Haruno is getting by selling her panties over the Internet. Yuri Fuyude plays such hard-edged rock that she can't get a gig anywhere. Michael's plan is to make a fortune by getting the girls to play the first ever concert on the moon. That suits boy genius billionaire Susumu Tsukumo (aged 13) who wants to find an eco-friendly means of space travel and thinks the girls will make excellent test subjects to supplement his cute personal android Kiku 8. Homages to anime like Excel Saga and Puni Puni Poemi as well as Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds and the Super Mario games make this a lightweight cavalcade of sight gags. Creator Juzo Mutsuki also edited and wrote the lyrics for the theme song.
The slang term wandaba originates in the martial music by Toru Fuyuki that once accompanied scenes of military preparation or launch in the old live-action Ultraman Returns (*DE, 1971)-parodied in fandom as a tune that went "wandabadabadabadaba." It has come to signify any launch sequence or scene of steely, belligerent resolve, and was also appropriated for the name of the male protagonist, Wan Dabada, in Beast Warriors.
