Ikurou is a young man with problems: after a terrible car accident, he was captured by a seedy organization and implanted with a parasite known as Baoh -- a creature which bestows superhuman powers on its host, especially when mortally wounded. While being transported by train, he is accidentally set free by Sumire, young a psychic girl, and the two make their escape. With more of his humanity slipping away by the minute, and the organization hot on their tracks, will the two escape with their lives, or simply cause a bloodbath along the way?
For Kouta and Yuka, finding the bloody naked young girl on the beach would change their lives forever, for better or for worse. Unable to speak or function as a normal human being, she is named Nyu by the duo, and taken into their home in an effort to save her. But what neither teenager knows is that this innocent young girl is actually a killing machine -- an experiment gone terribly wrong -- and it is only a matter of time before the murderer in her awakens again...
Elfen Lied is a bit more realistically gory, and the plots are different, but both anime start with the escape of a dangerous test subject in a bloodbath. During the rest of the anime, the people from the firm try to catch their experiment, and try to prevent it from causing trouble.
The first thing I thought while watching Baoh was Elfen Lied. There are human experiments preformed and when these super beings make their escape they are ruthlessly hunted. Lots of gore and blood follow suit making both series action packed for a mature audience.
In the distant future, man has advanced into space and spread to worlds throughout the galaxy. On one such planet, Jerra, a brutal war began between the Jerran army and the Nexram - those who opposed a galactic Earth government. To combat the threat the Jerran army created the MDS - Most Dangerous Soldiers - who possess elite fighting abilities. However, one such soldier, MD Geist, was deemed too ferocious and imprisoned inside an orbiting satellite. Now, in the present, both sides have been decimated and the planet lies in ruins. After his satellite falls to the planet, MD Geist wanders the wasteland once more. And after killing the leader of a powerful gang, Geist finds himself in the company of a woman named Vaiya. Together, the two join with survivors of the Jerran army and set forth on a quest to exterminate Death Force - a doomsday device built by the Jerrans - before it activates.
MD Geist and Baoh are pretty crummy 80's work that focuses on violence and gore. Neither is anything special as far as plot goes, but both shows feature a violent man dispatching of his enemies in the most bloody fashions. Fans of either would do well to check the other one out.
Two badasses, two worlds, plenty of head exploding action. There's an odd fixation on heads and said body parts receiving life-threatening cranium crushes. Crushing. Or stabs, lacerations, but other body parts aren't neglected as these two 80s anime of low quality but high in violent bloody calibur focus on the good things in life: Said violence, said violent head trauma, laughably bad dubs that fit the 80s theme, ball flexing manliness and badassitude that defys logic and thinking in every which way and plots you could give less than two pieces of rat crap about because of all the action and totally necessary explosions.
Ukyo Retsu is a skilled doctor who wants nothing more than to be happy with his girlfriend and save lives. Yet after saving an elderly patient, Ukyo finds himself in a delicate situation -- he's been given psychic supernatural powers for use in destroying the King of Darkness and an evil demon army itself! Now, after being thrown 5,000 years in the past during the time when the legendary demon army once prospered, Ukyo must use his newfound abilities to stop the invaders from annihilating mankind's ancestors before the evil consumes not only the ancient tribes, but himself as well!
Anime this terrible are hard to come by. So if you liked either Baoh or Psychic Wars and just felt like scraping the bottom of the barrel some more, definitely check out the other. Gratuitous gore and violence. Check. Acting so bad it's a compliment to call it 'wooden'. Check. Senseless plot that someone dreamt up on the spot. Check. Oh you know you want to...
Ryosuke is determined; he will find Bagi, and he will kill her. He has been searching for her for five years, but has known her much longer than that. Ryosuke had been a lonely child, as his parents were away working most of the time. He was given a kitten that he took quickly to, despite the fact that she didn’t look or act quite 'normal'. He named her Bagi, and they lived as best friends… until everyone around started to notice how different she really was and so she was discarded. Now, over a decade later, word has spread that Bagi has been terrorizing villages deep in the South American jungles and leaving many dead. With the help of a young village boy, Ryosuke sets out to stop her, but will he really have the heart to take her life?
Although Bagi is much more emotional and Baoh is rather action-packed, both movies have the same premise: a monster is being chased because he is considered to be a danger to people, but once you get to know them better you see that they might be more human than their hunters.
