Synopsis

In the distant future, mankind has colonized other planets in the universe. While many planets lived in peace, the planet Jerra has been ravaged by decades of war. Geist is an M.D.S. (Most Dangerous Soldier), an enhanced human with unsurpassed combat capabilities and an insatiable lust for battle. Because of his uncontrollable nature, Geist is cryogenically frozen and locked in a satellite. Several years later, the satellite crashes and Geist wakes up from his sleep to engage in another war. This time, to help the army stop the planet's central computer from activating a doomsday device that will lead to total annihilation of all life on Jerra.

You've just had your lunch money stolen for the eighth time this week, your Dad's out on a 'business trip', and Rage Against the Machine isn't around for you to pour your angst into today. Welcome to the 90's, jerk face. Sit your ass down on that water-bed, slide this burnt VHS you got from Gerald on into the TV, and experience a journey into the most fantastic slice of storytelling gold since Tolkien, Lucas, and Henson got together to create Lord of The Star Labyrinth. Oh, they didn’t? TOO BAD MD GEIST TIME.

Wow, I'm honestly surprised that this is the first review for M.D. Geist on MAL.

Particularly surprised considering how old, "well-known" and (in)famous this particular one-episode OVA is. M.D. Geist is really not any better or worse than most of the subpar anime series that was released to the U.S. from the early 80's to the early 90's. In some circles, it's particularly infamous but not so much for what it actually is or how bad the story is, but more on that later.

You can't go wrong with violence. Add a few squashed heads, some bloodspray and a few impalements, and the entertainment value of even the most mundane stories gets jacked up a notch or two. MD Geist is somewhat of an infamous title, partially because it has its fair share of gooey, squishy, splashy gore and partially because of its banal story which has earned it the title of "worst anime ever" in the minds of some critics. MD Geist is not quite that bad, but it proves, surprisingly enough, that even gratuitous lazers and head-crushing aren't enough to make a good anime.

MD Geist is awesome! It's a unique film.

MD Geist is a very unusal lead. He is one of my most favourite characters ever in anime.

MD Geist has a fairly simple, straightforward, story, and works well because of it.
There is no need to be overcomplex, when you can have a badass lead and well written, but straightforward, characters.
It's nihalistic, dark, and straightforward.

MD Geist is the complete opposite of wussy boy anime males. The total and utter opposite. Handsome, powerful, and masculine.
He does nothing you might expect, including when it comes to the female lead.
He likes killing, and nothing diverts him from it.
You'll never think read more

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 are about an 80s manly man doing manly things, kicking ass and chewing bubble gum with more bullets fired than words spoken. 
Both are OVA made in a time when men were men. They killed, screwed, and always knew what to do, accomplishing every mission in the bloodiest, most action-packed method possible. They were super soldiers, irresistible to women and feared by minions and goons. 
MD Geist is to violence what Eiken is to fanservice. Both shows go to the extremes in their respective content, both are OVAs, and both somehow received a second episode (in the case of MD Geist, it's a sequel).
 
I don't want to say to much, but they both feel similar. The main characters are both pretty much Immortal and have inhuman powers. The movies are packed with action and gore. The characters are also pretty similar, very hard and silent type with no feelings.
