After a massive earthquake rocked the Kanto region of Japan, the landscape remains decimated and towns of survivors are few and far between. One settlement dubbed ‘Hope Town' has previously been kept safe from invaders and danger, but one day the infamous Hell's Wind biker gang rolls into town. Known for being brutal and merciless, they quickly lay waste to the buildings, capture all of the townspeople and get set to rape a woman named Keiko. However, at the last second a badly-scarred, battle-hardened Jun appears; Hell's Wind previously had captured her and her boyfriend, viciously murdered her love and raped and left her for dead. Now, Jun and an unlikely companion - the giant Violence Jack - will try to put a stop to Hell's Wind and rescue Keiko!
In a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by earthquakes, grotesque monsters and powerful demons run rampant through the streets of New Tokyo. Only a select few people have been trained in the techniques necessary to defeat these creatures. Brothers Kakugo and Harara Hagakure not only possess the skills, they also harbor the power of the Zero Armor containing the souls of thousands of warriors. Separated from his brother, Kakugo roams the land fighting in order to restore some sort of peace and safety to mankind. However, he finds these monstrosities to be merely pawns to a much larger adversary from his past, who may prove to be his most dangerous opponent of all.
Worlds that gone into the toilet, badasses that smite evil to bring justice or less badness to the world and some plots you can't really care about. Violence abound, cheese dubs, a bit lacking in equality and for Apocalypse Zero, some mature content not safe for your brain. Apocalypse Zero over Violence Jack 3, but both are still crap. Violent crap from yester decade.
In a post-apocalyptic future, gangs of savage thugs prey on the fleeting remnants of civilization, raiding them for food and water in the endless wasteland the world has become. Humankind's only hope for the future may lie in a young girl with an amazing ability and in the only man powerful enough to protect her and punish evil--Ken, the Fist of the North Star!
Both take place in a post-apocalyptic world where people are terrorized by evil biker gangs and others who torment the weak. Both anime are very violent and gory, though Violence Jack 3 has graphic rape and attempted rape scenes that are not in Fist of the North Star. Also, both anime have a similar feel, in my opinion. If you like one, you may like the other.
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.
Know what they have in common? Badass people in the title killing evil in the face. To be fair, Violence Jack shares the action with some other people, mainly that chick with the gun. MD Geist makes everybody in his OVA look like a bunch of pussies.
You aren't going to give two shits about plot, character development or any of that weak ass shit. These two cheese fests of the ghetto age of violent OVAs with kickass soundtracks are all about action, violence, shooting evil in the balls and feats of testicular combustion awesomeness. MD Geist is more badass than Violence Jack but I wouldn't be doing Jacky any justice if I didn't mention how awesome some of it's stuff is. You could say it's... electrifying.
But I'm kidding, that's for Violence Jack 1.
