This is a reminder of the past, and I think it should be honored as such.


Not really. There are a lot of great older anime out that that should definitely be honored but I don't think this half baked mess deserves more respect because it was made in an older style. Unless you're telling me poor character development and shitty plotting were hallmarks of anime 40 years ago.

The only thing I will give this credit for was the art style. The retro character designs were refreshingly different but the limited budget did make for some dodgy animation at some points. If the story and characters had been better I wouldn't knock the animation but as it is I was often bored with the flat characters following the paint by numbers plot.

Now if you want to argue about the plot seeming cliche because of the older style then I have to say that it wouldn't have hurt to give the anime something unique other than it's interesting setting. Just because it might have been made in a certain style doesn't mean you have to let it constrain the creativity. Ozuma could been something that bridged the gap between older and newer anime.

A lot of new anime are cliche ridden messes as well. It's not like that problem is unique or anything so you can't really blame that all on the style.

Nothing special, artstyle was nice but story was disappointing. 5/10
I think it would work better as ~2h movie than 6 episode series.

great show - I liked it
no stupid fillers, nice characters and setting (ok Dune-like but I don't mind)
and of course that old-school feel in it. Nice to see something different.

Decent show with cool captains. Sadly, the other characters weren't really likeable/didn't stand out. The design was great, but somehow, it doesn't really fit today, or the animators did a lousy job. I love Leiji's design, but it didn't look that good here. The biggest problem is the episode count. It's like Gundam F91, trying to fit a 50ep story into 2h, except that F91 was great. Nevertheless, Ozma was pretty enjoying, but it's one of "wasted potential" shows. 6/10

About Dick's kamikaze run, he did it because he wanted to die as himself, and not as Gide who would probably take over some day. At least that's what he was implying.

Space Magic! Space Magic Everywhere!

It was ridiculous and embarrassing.

It means that Maya's people created a human model with perfect DNA to be immortal. Ok, and their goal was to be the superior race on the planet? Ok, but humanity is already not?

Then they destroyed the nature of the planet to be the superior race, or at least let it die.
Ozma was created many centuries ago to save samples of nature. Okay, and what for?

How the human race can be superior living in a barren planet? This is impossible! It makes no sense! Humanity NEED nature to survive, and the best way to show their superiority is taming nature, not living alone on the planet!

In the end through Sam, Maya saw that humanity was strong and could survive? Oh please, this is ridiculous because humanity shows their strong precisely adapting to any environment.


And coming back to Ideal Children, if they are so superior, why have begun to use the bodies of ordinary humans? This contradicts all ideas of them.

Totally contradictory.

Huh? It's over...OK. Well I daresay it's a fitting Earth Day tribute somehow. It was short 6 episodes but I'll agree with anyone that an hour and a half movie adaptation would have sufficed or better than a stretching it to 6-episode series. Bainas was OK I guess, Maya was still mysterious until the end, Sam was annoying, and Mimay was an unknown like the rest of the crew and the the Ideal Children. 6/10 since I still enjoyed the sand submarine battles midway through the series.

First of all, WOULD YA STOP YELLING "MAYA" YOU ANNOYING JERK?!
*phew*
Seriously, I wasn't this ticked off since "Toola!".

Oh and we get to see some clone girl x mechanical whale action. Wicked.
The button not working scene was hilariously anticlimactic.
Capitan is awesome, but only when she's not being emo.
And Dick goes kamikaze for whatever the reason.

Dune was better.

As I tought before watching it, 6 episodes were too few to develop the story and characters. However, it wasn't bad at all.

What I have, I need to blame is the art. It was terrible so many times... At least, this episode was better than the others. On the other hand, Ozuma's music was quite good. I'll pay attention in order to download it.

5 or 6.

I agree with everyone else. The art wasn't the problem, it was the rushed story and the lack of episodes. It had potential and was executed horribly. It's really too bad but w/e. On to the next show.

This anime is way to short. The final episode was to awkward. I thought I was being harsh at giving a 5/10 but it seems a lot of you also agree lol.

8/10 Sure it lacked character development and was cliched as hell but this series has a heart.Heart apparently forgotten by a lot of anime fans today.

I was the 3rd post to say that... but regardless... even if I was 4638726434th person... it is how it should be ranked.
Maybe this is how people voted because 5/10 ="average" and this show was average in every way.

THANK GOD you're here to give it a 6/10 and shake things up.

Well it wasn't a bad anime, story could have been developed a little more but I liked it anyways, the ending was decent.

This was pretty good.

8/10

The two notable flaws to me were bits of the dialogue just not fitting and the 2deep4unatureisbestlol morale of the story.

I know I'm probably in the minority, but I thought the characters were decently developed. I don't need 20 episodes of filler that explores each characters past just to deem that a character has depth.

I felt like there was plenty of material left unexplored and that's a plus to me. Having a story not hold my hand and reveal every single detail on every single faction, character, and environment is a breath of fresh air.

Average in every way? My picture of average is way more positive, this anime is way below an average.
