Evil Town is an improvement over Harlem Bomber. The plot is interesting. It's about three groups who want to leave the town but can't agree on how to work together. To make matters worse, Jack's arrival doesn't help at all. The Mad Riders enjoy being tough troublemakers. Sadly, the difficult circumstances forced the regular men to surrender their primal instincts. This caused the women to leave the men and live by themselves.

Violence Jack: Jigoku Gai-hen does not cut any corners showing the viewer all of the horrible acts post apocalypse. It is not for the faint of heart.

The overall plot, however, leaves much to be desired and brings down the overall experience. This is not an anime for everyone but if you have any ...

A thing I really like to see, in the works of art I watch or read (movies, novels, comic books and so on) is when the author(s) gives me something to think about the nature of violence. Because I hate violence, but it's everywhere, and I feel like I need to understand from what it generates.
Violence Jack (and, in particular, this OAV) fails to do it. Not only, but somehow it celebrates its violence, it finds some pleasure in showing it.

Now, I will make some spoilers, but the story is very formulaic: basically, it's not about "what happens", but "how it happens", so you ...
