Synopsis

Meet Galan, a Russian spastic geek who`d do anything to be a real, live samurai. But that`s just an impossible dream... or is it? When his friend Natsu, who is a successor of Japanese emigrants family, gives him the gift of an ancient sword, strange events unfold, and even stranger people drop out of the sky to attack. Now Galan must overcome his ineptitude and join a bunch of beautiful women in a wacky romp through a kingdom that time forgot. Hey, what could be better?

You completely miss the point of this anime. COMPLETELY.
It's not just another parody OVA with bunch of fanservice.
It's a USSR and Russian culture parody. So, for haters it does not count as worthy, but we Russians (and I think Russian culture lovers) like it very much. Not all, but most of us, who is not an ill hooray-patriot and can laugh upon its birthplace.
I am not a patriot (who said wapanese?..), but I still like Russia, so thematical jokes I found sometimes funny. For example, this anime.
It is good. It is really good.

Story: 9. An ordinary tale about neophyte-samurai turns to become a crazy read more

Ok all I have to say about this OVA is one thing.

What..the..!#$%

This would have to be one of the most random anime that I have ever seen in my entire life, even more random than Paranoia Agent. But I have to admit that this was a pretty funny show and it made me laugh at several scenes throughout both episodes and I really enjoyed it. So I am going to give this OVA a 10 for being so funny and for being so random.

Recommendations

In tone, atmosphere, art, type of humour and general zaniness, "Photon" and "Labyrinth of Flames" strongly resemble each other.

While the former has a more developed story (due to longer runtime) than the latter, they both feature well-paced action sequences and a limited yet interesting array of strongly individual and more often than not ridiculous and obsessed characters, all the while being really fun rides through somewhat outrageous comedic situations with a dint of romance... and loads of proper fanservice!

"Photon" and "Labyrinth of Flames" don't take themselves seriously at all: you're in for pure, wacky comedy provided by over-the-top behaviours, where the story is put on the back burner and is essentially an excuse for playing heavily and tastefully with clichés (albeit more subtly in "Photon").
Both are hilarious and have the same non-sense humor.
