An innocent young man, Ikuroo, has a parasite known as Baoh implanted in his brain by an evil organization, Doress. The parasite makes him nearly immortal and gives him the ability to transform into a really powerful beastie when he's in trouble.

Doress intends to use him in some sort of ploy for financial success, world domination, or something along those lines, but when they're transporting him on a train, a young psychic girl, Sumire (who's being held by the organization due to her abilities), sets him free and the two escape together.

Of course, Dr. Kasuminome is the mad scientist behind the whole Baoh thing, and he isn't about to let his test subject get away and he has considerable resources (including some superpowered lackeys, as well as a small army) at his disposal.

Hello, Visk here and today I will be clearing up this misconception about how this masterpiece has been misrepresented in the other reviews here.

I love Baoh. I truly do. The world seems to also. I've been told that this OVA was the basis for how alchemy worked in the critically acclaimed series FMA. I've also been told that it was also the inspiration for the T800 Robot in Terminator. In many ways this OVA is superior to the aforementioned titles but due to its short run time and lack of exposure critics nitpick just because they are worried someone else will see through their clever ...

Only a few minutes into this OVA and there is already a scene where dogs are brutally murdered... yup this is without a doubt a story written by Hirohiko Araki! If you're a fan of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, you may already know Baoh from JJBA Allstar Battle, because he was a DLC character in this game.

The plot is pretty straightforward and without many twists: this anime is about a young man who has the so-called Baoh parasite in his body. This allows him to transform into some sort of monster that looks like it's straight from Thundercats. He escapes from a facility and meets a ...

If you like your anime complete with exploding heads, melting flesh, dismemberment, and blood spilled by the liter, then look no further. BAOH is a visual orgasm of blood and violence. Of course if you also want an interesting story and characters that don’t look like they were stolen from other movies and stereotypes then you should probably not waste your time with this piece of crap.

Our story starts with a young girl Sumire being chased through a train by the henchmen of an evil organization we later learn is called Doress. Apparently this group kidnaps and uses people with various supernatural ...
