Overview:

Violence Jack: The Harlem Slum King is the first in the Violence Jack trilogy. These 3 movies are INFAMOUS for older otaku like myself for being the bloodiest, most depraved anime ever made! Does it live up to its reputation? Well...sort of. Violence Jack tries VERY hard to be bloody and controversial, but the animation is so awful that it is difficult to take it seriously. I have heard many otaku say how disturbing Violence Jack is, but lets look further at that claim. When you are comparing animation to live action film, animation is at a huge disadvantage when it comes to being disturbing read more

Story: 1/10 - Pathetic
I did not understand this story. Apparently, it has to do with a giant named Violence Jack. Yes, his name is Violence Jack. At that point, when they revealed that was the main characters name, I knew this wasn't going to be very good. The story was absolutely pathetic, and laughable. It jumped around, and really never solved anything.

Art: 7/10 - Good
Actually, the art was pretty nice considering this anime was made in the Mid-80's. The characters are detailed and so are the surroundings. The colors have a dull hue to them, though, and a lot of the characters really aren't drawn read more

Long ago, I used to believe that a good story just needed to have some good doses of blood, gore and of course naked women. Those were the days and I was a hungry teenager influenced by a dying and corrupt world. Of course that as the years passed me by, I was influenced by many other things and came to widen my taste range.
So, watching Go Nagai’s gory Violence Jack takes me back to my youth.

You do have to enjoy gory stories to enjoy Violence Jack, prior knowledge on Go Nagai would be also welcome.

Forget about the main plotline and just enjoy the read more

After 20 years I am still trying to learn what is so great about this short anime OVA. Based on Go Nagai's manga, Violence Jack is a three part OVA that takes place in a post apocalyptic setting where the strong are abusing the weak. Representing justice is the muscular giant Violence Jack. Violence because he's violent, and Jack because, well, he carries a big jackknife in his coat pocket.... clever huh? He runs around the city horribly knifing everyone he thinks deserves it.

Now for starters, this is actually volume one called the Harem Bomber, for some reason in the states it was aired read more
