Game battle

What really annoyed me about this article was the line "Japanese anime cartoons, featuring monsters with several penises".

First off, "Japanese anime" and "anime cartoon" are both tautologies. "Anime" would suffice. Secondly, the sentence implies that if the monster had only one penis, that would be OK. Surely this wasn't the intended meaning?
