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!
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?
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...
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?
Psychic Wars and Battle Royal High School are both strange amalgamations of tons of genres, combining monsters, weird powers and violence in a totally confusing way. Psychic Wars is so godawful it's good, and BRHS is close to that but misses the mark. If you liked either of these stinkers you'd like the other, probably.
Both of these OVAs are relics of the late 80s/early 90s. They're the kind of hyper violent anime that managed to get dubs here in the west and helped to shape the rather infamous reputation anime had in the west for many years.
Both these OVAs have completely non-sensical plots with character acting in an equally non-sensical matter. Both anime are full of grotesque monsters, gore and pointless nudity...and yet they're also both a ton of fun to watch in that so bad it's good kind of way. The dubs are hilariously awful and all the characters have the same hyper masculine machismo that isn't often seen in more modern titles.
The bottom line is both these anime are bad, but bad in a way that can be very fun to watch. The excessive violence, pointless nudity, random plots and grotesque monsters all make for a compulsively watchable bad anime.
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!
Psychic Wars is so bad it's hilarious, and Ai City is bad enough that it's at least worth watching once. Both are older anime that have ridiculous monsters, superpowers, and villains. If you liked one, try out the other.
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!
Psychic Wars and Black Lion are two of my favorite "so bad they are good" anime. Each has a laughable amount of gore, a ridiculous story, and overall makes you laugh out loud at how bad it is. If you liked one because of its ridiculousness, you MUST watch the other.
Chris was a typical boy whose only real problem was getting into a good college; that is, until he was suddenly sucked into Byston Well, a place between Heaven and Hell. With his body stuck in Japan, his soul must now help protect the Metomeus tribe from the tyranny of the Ashigaba tribe. Armed with Garzey’s Wing – wings of light which distinguish his role as a holy warrior – Chris will do whatever it takes to protect the maiden Hassan and her people, while keeping his own body and soul intact!
Perhaps the ancient shrines of Japan hold the secret to travelling to long ago or a fantasy world where you see women who say weird things as you tunnel through a light show and you have a destiny, hero, to defeat the bad things, humans are just human.
Wait wait wait. Let me slow down here a sec. Garzey's Wing and Psychic Wars have pretty awful exposiiton; mix that in with a pretty stupid and occasionally incoherent fnatasy story about a guy who gets sucked into some other world (the past, another reality, whatever, as Garzey's Wing lead quips: 'Dinosaurs also are here!') and then stuff happens. Psychic Wars has more sex and ultraviolence, but it isn't quite as entertainingly bad as Garzey's Wing... nonetheless, hey, shoe fits, if you liked watching one check out the other maybe.
