Ozuma is an anime that starts with potential, unfortunately it suffers from a crippling flaw; it's just too short.

The first thing you'll notice is the very old looking character designs, this is because it is based on the unpublished script by Leiji Matsumoto from the 1980's. Some might be put off by them, especially if you have only watched anime post 2000, but I think it provides a good example of how anime has changed visually over the years, and would hope that people would not avoid the series because of the old art. The animation was of a good quality throughout the run, and read more

There are many aspects about this anime that may be off-putting, like the older style of art, the shortness of it, and the strange, future-technology vocabulary used. However, I think that all of these just add to this anime's strength. The art is a pre-2000 style, meaning slightly disproportioned heads, everybody's got the same nose, and they all have really big hair--which looks fabulous in my opinion. The music all along the anime was awesome, especially the opening song; it successfully adds suspense. And the vocabulary, I must admit was frustrating in the beginning, but you have a deeper sense of accomplishment at the end read more

So this is what it feels like to get KO'd with 6 seconds to go.
Leiji, Leiji, Leiji...<smh>, how many anime have I watched SOLELY because your name is on them? How many of them have been good? How many did I enjoy less than OZMA? How many more will I watch? These are rhetorical questions. Like all Leiji-san's anime it starts with a boy (I'M NOT A BOY! I'M ALMOST A MAN!!) who finds adventure with a mystery girl; which leads to an all too familiar group on their special ship, being pursued by the pig dog feddies (they're all feddies after gundam) in read more

OZMA is your stereotypical apocalyptic-type story, where the world is pure desert and people must live in cities near an oasis. The conflict is centered on the titular OZMA figure that appear to be a beast that has terrorized the high sands for centuries. The majority of the action take place on the ship that the main characters reside on and centers on their interaction with the "Ideal Children" empire and their princess.

Story(6)-The story is okayish, I guess. While the overall plot is decent and such I would have loved to see more of the apocalyptic culture. Oh well, I guess there's Mad Max. read more
