Synopsis

From the depths of space he is coming...

Ancient beyond understanding, his power is immeasurable. He has destroyed half the universe and is on his way here. He is... Genma.

Only two people are aware of the imminent catastrophe: Princess Luna, a modern day prophetess and Vega, a cybernetic crusader from a world long since ravaged by Genma. Determined to spare the Earth from a similar fate, Luna and Vega must try to mobilize the most potent psychics in the world. Together, this army of fledging psychic warriors must succeed where billions have tried... and failed.

But will they be able to gather their champions in time? Genma's agents are already on Earth to ensure that their master meets with no opposition!

This film left me annoyed, invigorated, frustrated and amazed.

This is about a boy getting love-powered psychic abilities and his journey as he discovers this, plays with this, discovers the consequences, and of course has to help the handful of other psychic warriors on Earth defeat a countless-galaxies-destroying being. I found myself really enjoying and relating, not only to his journey, but to a few other characters. Until the last third. Oh god what did I just see.

I have mixed feelings about this anime, but they're mostly a mixture of good things. At first it seemed awful, then it seemed so bad it was good. The read more

After getting a good laugh from the infamous Mars of Destruction, I decided to watch Genma Taisen thinking that I would have a somewhat similar experience. I was gravely mistaken...

Story- 2/10
Typical save the world from the bad guy plot. Things happen for no apparent reason, and anytime something did happen I felt like punching myself in the throat.

Art- 3/10
Still frames, expressionless faces, recycled/ choppy animations, and horribly drawn backdrops (with the exception of a few decently animated scenes). Nothing much else to say here.

Sound- 3/10
Below average voice acting. Terrible soundtrack. Cheesy sound effects (this is a plus though). Again, nothing much else to say.

Character- 1/10

After surviving a mysterious airline explosion princess Luna then encounter a supernatural being that warn her about the impending fate of the earth.The evil demonic entity called Genma plots to whip out all life on earth and only her and other special individuals with psychic powers called psionic warriors can stop him.She most gather the other from across the globe and unite to defeat Genma and his evil minions

I Seriously deserve the title of sainthood for sitting through this;which although overall wasn't completely awful, at times was a dung fest.The pacing is ridiculously slow and the plot transparent and uninspiring.The characters were bland read more

One of the BEST oldskool anime movies ever made, just because it contains NO drop of blood, and its really fun, if u like long movies. Personaly this is really an anime movie to watch with the whole fammily, wich is really an reccomendation, or just for a good movienight alone, the story is easygoing and fun how it develops, same wich intro of the char. througout the movie, its animation was , more mature like for its time wich a lot of ppl these days have forgotten about 80´s anime movies, and they had time to kill for making such a nice story, not read more
