Synopsis:

In times of olde, God gave mankind the ten commandments, and a message that has been lost to the centuries. In the present, Koichiro Kamishiro is a modern day Indiana Jones who scours (and often destroys) ruins for hints of the past, until one day he runs across a box filled with two crystal triangles. Having inadvertently run across the key to God's lost message, Kamishiro suddenly has a lot to deal with including assassination attempts by the KGB and the CIA, aliens hell-bent on destroying the Earth and the love of several women!

Spriggan is another movie that focuses on finding a rare treasure and such, with plenty of action and excitement. If you liked Crystal Triangle, you'll probably fall in love with Spriggan, as it's much better comparitively.
Rar
Archeology is a dangerous buisness, especially when god gets involved. Make sure you've got some pretty special abilities, and a bunch of equally talented compainions before digging around for relics which the fate of the world rests upon. Also be prepared for equally outlandish oposition, generally bent on world domination. If you don't learn these lessons from Spriggan and Crystal Triangle, stay at home. Where it's safe.

Both are about uncovering artifacts that lead to ominous consequences for the fate of humankind.  If only archeology was this exciting in real life!  Crystal Triangle, focuses more on the discoveries themselves, while Spriggan focuses on what humanity could do with those powers.

Ai City

Ai City
  • Movie (1 ep x 100 min)
  • 1986

In a dystopic and futuristic Tokyo, humanity’s genetic code has gone awry. At the forefront of the technology is Fraud, an organization conducting experiments on people such as Kei and Ai – two escaped “headmeters” with hefty psychokinetic powers. The sinister Mr. Lee wants nothing more to retrieve Ai back to his clutches, as she seemingly holds the key to immense power; Kei wants simply to keep Ai safe; and the evil Lai Lo Ching has his own master plan. Along with the help of the amnesiac headmeter K2 and a trusty sidekick, Kei must fight to protect Ai from the evils of Mr. Lee, Lai Lo Ching, and the state of the world itself!

Crystal Triangle is flat out bad in every way. Ai City, though made around the same time period, is better - darker, more interesting, and a bit more humor. However, it still is cheesy, has ridiculous monsters, etc. If you liked CT, check out Ai City.

Battle Royal High School

Battle Royal High School
  • OVA (1 ep x 60 min)
  • 1987

Hyoudo is a ‘typical' high school boy who carries out his martial arts battles wearing a jaguar mask. However, there's more to Hyoudo than meets the eye - he's also the counterpart to a Demon Master named Byoudo from the dark realm, and soon comes to be possessed by the evil force! As if that isn't strange enough, there's also an evil Fairy Master whose goal is to spread her nests of bloodthirsty offspring, a pair of space time continuum enforcers, a sword-slinging demon hunter and tentacle monsters galore. Will the Demon Master Byoudo or Fairy Master succeed in taking over Earth, or can they be stopped?

Do you like anime that combines tons of random genres, monsters and other bizarre elements in a completely FAIL way? Both Crystal Triangle and Battle Royal High School are for you. There's not much else to say - both of these suck complete ass, so if you liked one, definitely try out the other.

Black Lion

Black Lion
  • OVA (1 ep x 44 min)
  • 1992

In the year 1580, Nobunaga Oda is on a warpath to obtain rulership of Japan at any cost, and ninja and samurai alike are banding together to try to put a stop to his tirade. But when the invincible warrior Ginnai Doma – also known as the Ninja Killer – enters the picture, more than just a little blood will be shed. It's up to Shishimaru of the Iga Ninja and other powerful fighters to take down Ginnai once and for all, but little do they know that aliens, cyborgs, and even strange technology are somehow involved!

Crystal Triangle and Black Lion are so hilariously bad that they are awesome. Though, Crystal Triangle isn't nearly as PURE AWESOME or laugh-inducing as Black Lion by any means. Both have a combination of historical events and utter nonsense (such as aliens, demons, technology) that have absolutely no place in the story. Just don't take either of these seriously and you'll be in for a wild ride.

Explorer Woman Ray

Explorer Woman Ray

Granted, I didn't really enjoy either of these. Regardless, both were very Indiana Jones-like with action and intrigue to be found with strange ruins and objects... so if you liked one, you might as well try out the other!
