Have you ever witnessed a man punching cancer in the face? Me neither, until I watched Psychic Wars.

The above may sound like a scene mistakenly taken out of context, but do not be fooled: this is an anime that takes itself very seriously. It is an anime so atrociously bad on every level that solitary confinement may be considered a more pleasurable experience. Perhaps if I were not some kind of passive-aggressive masochist who finds amusement in dreadful anime, I would have attempted to hang myself in order to free my mind from this abomination. Welcome to Toei Animation's brilliant chef-d'oeuvre: Psychic Wars.

This was a surprising triumph over any desires for success or entertainment. The dialogue was stiff, the scene transitions were clumsy, the story was inane, the drama was laughable and the fights were silly at best.

I really wish I had more to say but it really was just that bad. The animation was maybe slightly above what you would see on Voltron, and yet, probably the best thing about this movie. Creating something this bad requires a dedicated team of sadists and misanthropists.

Let me start of by saying what a ride, Psychic Wars is the story of a young Doctor (About 46 or something) named Ukyo who gains "Super Sayian" like powers.

Now allow me to jump into the deeper parts of the plot as I deconstruct some of the symbolism that is in the movie.

-If you have been paying attention you would have noticed that I said Ukyo gained "Super Sayian" like powers however this isn't really true most of what happens in this movie is a dream however we don't need to dive into that plot point now.

To explain why his Ukyos powers aren't read more

Why was this ever made? Horrible story that is followed by a stupid lead character with no reason to exist. My God what were they thinking? Where was quality control when this idea was presented? If you like anime that is bad in every facet, this is for you. Cheesy eng dub that wasn't even funny. I think it was supposed to be like Vampire Wars, but that one at least was cool for 25 out of 50 minutes. I could only stomach about 10 minutes before I skimmed thru till end. I never found a good part to at least say "Well that was read more
