Write a short summary of what happens in the film

Episode 1 is when Goro finds the legendary condom and becomes a condom battler. Episode 19 is taking the Condom Pro License exam. In episode 45 Goro participates in the Condom Championship Tournament. And episode 56 Goro fights against the final boss. Each episode is produced in a digest format.

Cultural / Context information for the jury

In Japan, there is still a tendency for topics related to sexuality to be viewed as taboo, and the current situation is that "sex education" is not being conducted satisfactorily. For that reason, they cannot be seen or shared in the usual way, so we decided to share the information by using drastic animation, story, and character setting. In addition, there is a culture of puns in Japan, and young people often use puns because of embarrassment when talking about sexuality, and this work also uses it. *56 is a pun and is also read as, "GOMU" = which is a popular name for condoms in Japan. *56 is a pun and is also read as "GORO", and the name of the main character is taken from here. *Aside from this, 19 =" IKU "= means "ECSTACY". 45 =" SHIKO "= means "MASTERBATION".

Explain how the work innovatively used the film medium.

The current situation in Japan is that sex education is considered embarrassing and it is not something actively getting information from yourself. Most of the film contents showing in Japan about sex education is difficult and rigid. Despite the seemingly crazy playful animation appearance in our video, the structure is such that you can gain knowledge about sexuality while watching it, and enlightened people who could not get the information until now. We think this interesting video naturally conveys the message that people wanted. Therefore, this film was a very innovative work.
