Kizuoibito

Yuko Kusaka is a Japanese journalist sent to Brazil to do a report on the gold rush phenomenon that seems to be making many people rich from night to day. Rumors say that among the many "garimpeiros" (gold diggers) currently on the Amazon forest, there is a Japanese known as Rio Baraki. Reaching their destination, her crew member is promptly attacked and she is raped as a warning to stop their work and return immediately to their home country. Determined to do her job, she stays and finds out from the attacker that he is none other than Baraki, a white haired muscular man with a large scar on his back. Later she discovers that his real name is Keisuke Ibaraki. Once a promising quarterback, he ended up falsely incriminated by a powerful organization known as GPX.

Well... this I'm not really sure what to say about this 5 episode OVA called Kizuoibito (Wounded Man). Pretty much its Kazuo Koike worst anime adaption. Its not as interesting or visually appealing as Crying Freeman, nor is it as gut wrenchingly hilarious (if you have a weird sense of humor like me) as Madbull 34. Well I guess a part of that has to do with the fact that its his earliest OVA dating back to 1985.  Story- So the story follows the main character Keiske who is trying to get revenge for his dead highschool sweet heart. The ones he wants to get revenge on? A porn company... yes a porn company that killed his gf because he would not do porn for them. No I'm not making this up. Yeah he goes to the Amazon, fights Green beret soldiers and has a lot of sex. Animation- Well the char designs look decent enough, but gawd is the animation quality terrible. Lots of still frames and stuttery animation. Sound- Some nice synth and rock beats throughout, but fairly unmemorable as were the voices. Characters- All the female characters seem to want Kieske's junk without explanation and the amount of girls he goes through in the course of OVA episodes is equal to the number of episodes so that should tell you something. The "villains" are boring and the main char himself is rather titular and only seems to care about two things. Beating people up and having sex. Overall- If you want a better story, characters and animation Crying Freeman is a much better watch. If you just want to have a laugh at crazy situations and characters who seem to spout nothing but profanity go watch Madbull 34. This OVA is not worth your time.
