I know many of you probably decided to watch this OVA after seeing the popular "Casshern Sins" anime, so here I'll be discussing on why you should or should not watch "Casshan: Robot Hunter." Yes, it is the same Casshern from "Neo-Human Casshern" an anime series from about 1973. The OVA was intended to be 4 epds, however, it was edited into one action pack film via its American release. Recognizable faces are still of some familiarity in this OVA, however, you'll begin to noticing different aspects towards character development. Also, I believe that this OVA closely resembles "Neo Human Casshern" and not "Casshern Sins." read more

This OVA seems to be a remake first Casshan also known as Cashern series.
In this world Dr. Azuma built a super android called BK-1 and instructed the android to protect earth and nature, the robot to fulfill his duties began to kill and tyrannize all the human race, because afterall the human race was killing earth. BK-1 then renames himself as Black King Boss. Tetsuya, Dr. azuma's son, after watching this massacre is left with no other choice than that of merging himself with his father latest android becoming the legendary immortal Casshan.

I've entered this Casshan world by the Cashern Sins series, so please bear read more

This anime is ok.
It also is a definition of 'crap got wierd'.
One of the weirdest animes I ever saw.

I saw the english dub.
The english dub is good. Casshans voice is very good.

The story is all over the place. It does't explain some things well. Or at all.
A lot of the time, you sit there going, WTH?!
Some of it is cheesey.
The end is not explained well.

It takes a turn into mad science with how Casshan becomes a cyborg.
Seriously, there is a machine that looks like the teleporter from The Fly!

Luna is one of the worst dressed characters in anything!
She looks like a freaking clown. Or read more

Anime: Uchuu no Kishi Tekkaman Blade
Both are remakes of the '70s robot genre series. Both are "white knights" but not similar in storyline or character relations. Both are enjoyable old-school anime—the way it's not done anymore, sadly.

Anime: Shin Hurricane Polymar
Both 90s remake OVAs of classic 70s Tatsunoko superhero anime.

Anime: Bubblegum Crisis
Both are badass OVA series about fighting against robots in the future that are endangering mankind.
