Earthian is from the late 1980s- early 1990s but in no way should be viewed as a classic. It's just...average. There isn't anything special about it but it isn't completely horrible. Each episode was different: one was alright, one was bad, one was good, and one was cheese. Average. Even though there needs to be credit due to the age it's still alright. Earthian screams 80s, which can be a good thing, but only the sound was exceptional for the time period.

Earthian is shonen-ai but the characters fell into the yaoi stereotypes. There was one guy who was emotionless and the "man" in the read more

This anime tried very hard to cram a lot of a complicated plot into a short OVA. One would think this would result in a very fast-paced show, but it still manages to crawl at a snails pace.

This isn't an anime that you should watch without reading the manga. If you've read the manga, it's nice to see some aspects (SOME) come to life (kind of) in an anime. As a stand-alone, it leaves you with more questions than answers.

They should've just not called it a shounen-ai and cut that one scene because it does nothing for the anime but throw you for a read more

Let me tell you: I'm not a fan of shounen-ai or yaoi. I did try writing a yaoi fan fic in high school but not only was it extremely problematic, but I lost inspiration for it. I wouldn't have heard of Earthian if one of my favorite internet critics, The Cartoon Hero, hadn't reviewed it (and it's a funny review. Check it out on his Zippcast account). Yet against my better judgment, I got curious about the OVA, and decided to check it out, because I was sad and gloomy and wanted something deep to get me out of my funk. Now, I love it read more

4 episodes... If you think I will say it wasn't enough, you are mistaken. I think it was enough, no.. I think it was enough by the third episode.

I was completely bored, and tired by this anime that I ended up stopping about ten times just to find something else to do. Usually resulting in a more interesting movie, such as Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaur.. oddly.

The story, well.. I am not sure what it really is. I get that they are angels sent to evaluate us on good or bad habits but really... what else is there to this other than utter read more
