Family Values? ‘Frothy’ Rick Santorum in business with adult anime creator

Failed presidential candidate and wannabe movie mogul Rick “Frothy” Santorum has a smutty anime secret – his “faith-based film studio” is backed and managed by a major player in the production and distribution of adult anime content.

Currently “Frothy” Rick Santorum is the CEO of EchoLight Studios, a Texas-based production company focused on making “family-friendly, wholesome, Christ-centered entertainment.” Santorum’s manager and backer at EchoLight Studios turns out to be Gen Fukunaga, an expert in the production and distribution of adult anime content, i.e. pornographic cartoons.

Fukunaga is the investor who helped get EchoLight off the ground, and has been manager of EchoLight since its inception in 2011. 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!”

Other adult anime shows like Girls Bravo are also distributed in North America by FUNimation. In one particularly graphic sexual scene of Girls Bravo, a young female character simulates oral sex on a banana while a male onlooker experiences sexual gratification by watching. The scene is, by any measure, downright pornographic.

So much for family values.
