I know many of you probably decided to watch this OVA after seeing the popular "Casshern Sins" anime, so here I'll be discussing on why you should or should not watch "Casshan: Robot Hunter." Yes, it is the same Casshern from "Neo-Human Casshern" an anime series from about 1973. The OVA was intended to be 4 epds, however, it was edited into one action pack film via its American release. Recognizable faces are still of some familiarity in this OVA, however, you'll begin to noticing different aspects towards character development. Also, I believe that this OVA closely resembles "Neo Human Casshern" and not "Casshern Sins." read more

This OVA seems to be a remake first Casshan also known as Cashern series.
In this world Dr. Azuma built a super android called BK-1 and instructed the android to protect earth and nature, the robot to fulfill his duties began to kill and tyrannize all the human race, because afterall the human race was killing earth. BK-1 then renames himself as Black King Boss. Tetsuya, Dr. azuma's son, after watching this massacre is left with no other choice than that of merging himself with his father latest android becoming the legendary immortal Casshan.

I've entered this Casshan world by the Cashern Sins series, so please bear read more

This anime is ok.
It also is a definition of 'crap got wierd'.
One of the weirdest animes I ever saw.

I saw the english dub.
The english dub is good. Casshans voice is very good.

The story is all over the place. It does't explain some things well. Or at all.
A lot of the time, you sit there going, WTH?!
Some of it is cheesey.
The end is not explained well.

It takes a turn into mad science with how Casshan becomes a cyborg.
Seriously, there is a machine that looks like the teleporter from The Fly!

Luna is one of the worst dressed characters in anything!
She looks like a freaking clown. Or read more

I found out about this OVA while looking on information about Cassharn's sin, and found out, decided to check it out first to see some of the other versions. This was a good series, though I suspect the original might be a bit more coherent.

Story: It's good, but only being four episodes and movie length it definetly feels like some stuff was rushed, and not completly explained, but I still enjoyed it, a nice throwback to the 70's and 80's anime even if it is early 90's.

Art: I like this kind of art for some reason, I can't read more
