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

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

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

This is a spoiler free review that covers all 3 episodes of Go Nagai’s cult classic, Violence Jack.

What can I say about it? Well, If you’re reading this, then I assume you’re not sure whether you should watch it. So I’ll do my best to help you make up your mind. Don't worry, I'm not gonna trash it that much or anything. I report, you decide (more or less).

So if you’re familiar with Go Nagai you know that he's known for having eroticism and violence in many of his works. Besides that though, he did end up creating some influential and creative titles read more

Recommendations

Same type of world setting and outlook on humanity, also with a violent beast of a protagonist whose only purpose in life to is horrendously cut people into pieces.
Both have the same apacolyptic scenario,showing struggles for survival by finding food and staying alive from bandits
Both are very similar in that fall in to the category of pure exploitation. The only difference being Violence Jack is a steaming pile of an anime where Elfen Lied is simply great.
Although the stories are quite different, they both give me the same feel. All the characters act in a similar manner. I cant exactly put it in words but both have a similar feel to it and give me the same mood when i finish an episode.
Gangs, depravity, blood splatter, flying body parts, sex, a strange form a justice, giant economy size characters - just change the names and places. Violence Jack is a mid-80's Mad Max style post Apocalypse world where crazed, barbaric bike gangs rule the day bombing, blasting, shooting, raping, killing, killing, raping, and training sex slaves . . . until they meet up with the enigmatic giant demon thing, Violence Jack, who dispenses gory, blood splattered justice. Tokyo Tribe 2 is much the same only it is set in modern Tokyo and benefits from better character development but then it is a series and VJ a set of 3 OVA's. If you liked or were intrigued by one, you may well be interested in the other.
